    I think we should change the rules such that weight-cutting is no longer a part of the UFC. Yes, this would be a major change, but, if done correctly, you will wind up with fighters fighting at their natural weight.

    I think we should change the rules such that we limit the likelihood of no-contests due to illegal knees. It seems to me that the simplest change would be to consider it legal to knee the head of an opponent who just has hands and feet on the ground. Pearson, would have tried to block the knee with his arm if not for the current oddball rule that told him to not defend himself and instead put his hand on the floor.

    Just curious….How do you stop a guy from cutting weight in order to fight in a lower weight class?
