    i think they should use the yellow card but not take away money, just points, every time they do it take a point and if they get say 3 or 4 in one fight dq there butt

    I appreciate the intent of the Yellow Card. I find it unacceptable that a fighters pay be minimized for any reason. I’m disappointed with a fighter stalling for the sake of stalling in an MMA event.

    I don’t think UFC refs encourage action enough, although I do hear some of them pleading for the fighter to become more active and to mix it up (“Come let’s go” usually from Big John). I do think there should be an incentive for action of penalty for stalling. With a penalty for stalling, I it MAY motivate fighters to improve their cardio before stepping inside the ring/cage/octagon.

    I like the idea of the system without the removal of cash from the purse, docking a point for inactivity and standing them back up would force the wrestlers to try harder to improve position and finish fights.

    I remember the worst fight i've seen in the UFC was on the UFC 56 card, Kevin Jordan vs. Gabriel Gonzaga, 3 rounds of nothing until a superman punch ended it pretty abruptly in the last 30 seconds. That needed a yellow card or 12 to improve it.

    no definately not.It's not fair to the fighters.Yellow cards are often over used in Pride and they're something I'm totally against.

    IFL actually if I'm not mistaken. The UFC may offer a finishing bonus but I'm not sure.

    I agree w/ the yellow card system, and I do agree w/ the purse reduction. However I think the first card should be a warning and restart in standing position(with point deduction), the 2nd time a reduction(maybe 5-10%). If an orginazation pays you to excite and entertain then you need to do so. It would take some time for fighters to adjust, but it would even the playing field for strikers who consistently fall to pray and lay tactics.

    A finishing bonus of, say, 50% of the purse would reward exciting fighters thus would achieve the same goal as yellow cards but in a fairer and simpler way.

    Yellow cards aren't needed...as long as the ref gives a warning, then takes a point away, etc.
