    Default So is this for Amateur No Headshots?

    ...or Amateur 'inc' headshots, as technically Amateur MMA doesn't have headshots does it?

    I've watched an American Amateur fight and noticed that it's headshots but they have head protection and I think they have bigger gloves and shinpads, which I thought was a good idea.

    I like the shooto rules with massive pillow gloves, head guards and body armour. Kinda like you see on Olympic TKD matches.

    In America amateur MMA is exactly the same is pro MMA, just the level of experience is different. I have no idea why the UK feels it should have no head shot rules.

    Because the UK grappling game is so far ahead of the Americans?

    Many Trad MA type events have no headshot rules too.
    Back in the day.... You would have found it hard to get these guys to have a go at a MMA fight.


    Its prob not so much an issue now.
