Thread: Question about the Pro B Class rule set?

Hybrid View

  1. #1

    Default Question about the Pro B Class rule set?

    Ok I get that it's basically full rules without elbows, yes it's not a real rule set but its been adopted but shouldn't they still be 5 minutes long?

    Just looking at the results thread on the board and someone's just won by UD at '3:00' of Round 3...??

    Never seen any MMA bouts over 3 minutes. Even amateur bouts are usually 4 minutes.
    Why do shows insist on making up their own rule sets that bear no resemblance to any other shows anywhere.

    I don't know but as they're being accepted, surely a fighter could build up a serious record fighting 3 minute rounds?

    Bit of a different between 3 and 5.

    Could be fighting twice a week.
    They must be fast and furious bouts, pretty difficult to implement any game plan I would imagine.

    They aren't pro fights and this is another example of why people in UK MMA are the own worse enemy.

    Would you say it's not a pro fight if there are no elbows?

    I see what you are trying to do here.

    Yeah you can have no elbows and it still be a pro fight. UCMMA have no elbows, pride had no elbows and in Europe no elbow fights are common. Even in the US some states allow an opt-out.

    But when you start adding more restrictions in there, bigger gloves, 3 minute rounds and effectively make it an Ammy fight then....

    That's pretty much what I thought... That's how I see it, I know France and UCMMA etc don't use them.

    You know France don't even have headshots on the floor.

    I would argue as that is the ONLY way MMA fights can happen in France then they are pro.

    In the same way that nothing stops promoters calling any rule set in the UK 'pro'. But we have a choice but hey being a 'pro' fighter is the in-thing. So that's not criticise anyone cos then you are the bad guy.

    Hey what do i know i've never fought, maybe i should banished to Australia for even criticising people.
