The ABC's annual meeting is over, no changes to the unified rules of MMA, but there are 4 very minor policy changes.

Going to the scorecards vs a NC after a foul ends a fight - no change for us because the new policy (scorecards after the halfway point, down to the second on the clock) only impacts 1, 2, and 4-round fights. They have to change the unified rules for 3 and 5-round fights.

Greasing - the jelly they apply before the fighter enters the cage can now be re-applied between rounds, but only by the cutman.

KO definition - Current: arbitrary decision by the referee and/or commission. New: Fighter is physically unable to defend themselves = KO, fighter is not defending themselves (eg curling up) = TKO.

Referee authority after the final bell - In the rare case of a flagrant foul after the fight is over, if the inspectors from the AC have not yet re-entered the cage, then the ref can DQ a fighter.

Goons are trash and a putrid forum culture is the reason why nobody new registers. At best you're 30+ year old failed twitter "comedians" and tolerate this pig because he has the same normie sports hobby as you do.

I would normally be worried, but when an olympic or college wrestler is doing a big weight cut, then I just assume they know what they are doing unless they actually miss weight.

Cejudo has missed weight at least twice before.

i think bantamweight is better. since its probably the lowest weight division where you dont have to be the rare breed of human who is both super tiny and not super frail or sickly to even be in it. which im not against but i do think it means theres less talented fighters cos of it

I remember being really entertained by the division when they first held the tournament to fight for the belt and I think right up until... I want to say DJ beat Horiguchi. Horiguchi was obviously not ready for the shot but there was a little what if. After that it all felt like forgone conclusions.

cejudo is paying +400 and i'll probably bet on it. it's really hard to gauge because mm is so insanely good but i think cejudo has improved enough to actually take rounds off of mm.

i haven't given a poo poo about a mm opponent since dodson the first time but i will be actually impressed with a mm victory if he tears cejudo apart again.

I'm not personally convinced Cejudo has improved much since, how do you figure?

Did you not watch his close fight with Joe Benavidez? Cejudo would definitely have a shot at beating the 2012 version of MM.

"First lesson. Stick 'em with the pointy end."


Cejudo giving up on trying to strike with Pettis after like 40 seconds of trying and just wrestling him doesnít bode well for the rematch imo.

Unless he can just wrestle the poo poo out of DJ for 5 rounds and get a decision.

Yeah I think 125 is garbage, itís got a bunch of failed bantamweights and while DJ is a legit Good fighter, the division isnít really interesting.

It feels like 185 when Anderson was beating up Travis Lutter.
