i think the rules were originally going to include soccer kicks, people i knew were scheduled to fight and were training to stand up from sidemount and put the boot in. i got my face stamped on during these sessions haha it wasn't full-on, thankfully.
at the rules meeting, allegedly, one guy there might as well have walked in off the street, he allegedly stood there telling a bemused crowd of fighters and trainers that not only were soccer kicks going to be illegal, so was punching from standing to ground. (!!)

'maybe on reflection that was a genuine grievance and not a gimmick. '
I was at an event last year that had 12 fights on the card. By about 11pm, only 6 had taken place. The event was then stopped for a raffle where around 40-50 prizes were given away. Not even exaggerating. It took about 30 mins.
Thing was, so many people had left by the time of the raffle that the same people were winning over and over again. Highlight was a fat lass who won about six Iron Gym pull-up bars and a haircut from the local salon.
I'm just bitter because I really fucking wanted that haircut.
Fighting, writing and mood lighting.
