Petition Tag - mixed
Florida Boxing Commission passed the ruling to allow Amateur Mixed Martial Arts back in Florida on July 7, 2010. Rules and regulations state that ground and pound is not allowed in amateur mixed martial arts.
The definition of ground and pound is defined as to describe a fighting style or technic. To take one's opponent to the ground, establish a dominant position. Usually a top position (i.e., mount, side mount, half mount, etc. can also be used while in one's "guard"). Reign down closed fist punches to the head while on the ground. After amateur mixed martial arts fighters have attained 5 verifiable amateur fights in Florida, they qualify to become Professional fighters.
The issue we have is that without amateur fighters gaining any experience on ground and pound before going Pro, we the (Association) feel it is very dangerous on these fighters entering Professional status without exercising the experience.
A solution that can be made is to revise this particular rule and that once the Amateur fighters have reached 5 amateur mixed martial arts fights, they become eligible to become semi professional, or advanced amateur fighters, and to allow them to experience ground and pound like it is at the Professional level. All protection rules of 7 oz gloves and shin guards remain the same.
I must give all readers of the Petition fair warning because of oh so vulgar trollisms on the Signature page. Like a Rap CD the signature section is RATED M. Please be a Fan when you read the signature section and disregard.
I have rewritten the Petition when good suggestions come so please feel free to email me with any.
Since purchasing PRIDE the UFC seems to be without a solid direction they should go with them.
Its not really that much of a stretch. It's just like Season 4, and "I think" some of the Season 4 guys fought for more than UFC at one time. It'd be a sure-fire quick way to get the PRIDE guys introduced in USA UFC Fans minds. If you offer a Title shot to the Season winner (like 4) you will see just how many Good Fighters will sacrifice 6 Weeks. Realistically this could be the lower end guys that need that boost. Though some Fighters might bite the stick for six-weeks to get over in America that arent lower end.
Fighters make probably half of their money on endorsements, and people "in America" might know who Chris Leben is more than even Fedor. That sounds like im talking nonsense, but I dont think you realize the exposure value to everyone involved on that program.
If "some" of the PRIDE stable didnt want to do it hed have three good guys from there that would. No argument Its good business for everyone involved, but yeah a pain. "6 LONG WEEKS!" Its all how you look at it really. Yeah even if Fedor himself was a Coach for the season his name value would be MUCH greater afterward.
If the UFC moves ahead with this concept theyll pick who They want to pick. Having said that I believe the 2 best coaches for alot of reason would be Quinton "Rampage" Jackson vs Shogun Ruas. Jackson would be simply the most entertaining Coach ever, and put some opponent that knocked him out for six weeks in his face - forgedaboudit.
This reality show put UFC on another level entire. Don't underestimate the power of TV. For a Title shot and Endorsement increase we imo could see the strongest llineup in a TUF house ever.

Friday Nite Mixed League. We would like all ten teams to continue bowling on Friday Nights through the remainder of the (10) ten weeks. At that time, we have our pay-out week. The (3) three teams that did not want to continue on for (5) more weeks, finalize their time with this league and the remaining (7) teams will then continue on for the remaining (5) weeks. At the end of these (5) weeks, the first place team will split the winnings between their team members.
