This procedures will see the following happen at CWFC events:

  • Two qualified cutmen at each event, so unqualified cornermen don’t have to accept responsibility.
  • Three referees on the night.
  • Head official Marc Goddard and head cutman John Tandy to oversee proceedings.
  • No Vaseline in changing rooms; all to be applied at the cage door.
  • Official in the changing rooms at all times to oversee what is going on.
  • Vigilance on fighter safety procedure e.g. a ‘no fight’ policy for fighters getting knocked out or stopped within a certain timeframe.
  • Hands wrapped by official and signed off.
  • By 2012, having qualified MMA medics and working to bring in bloods and MRIs for all fighters.
  • Seminars by head officials to educate other shows and promoters.
