I am doing a report on UFC. one of the questions is UFC ethical. i know what it means but does anyone have any advice on what to say exactly. thanks
As someone who has and does train in MMA;
I think most people worry that what you see in an MMA fight is what you would see on a street corner, two guys fighting because they want to hurt someone. These people have most likely not seen UFC, and just think it's two guys with barely any rules in a cage scrapping.
This can't be further from the truth, it is structured with rules from top to toe of the card, i'm still baffled by the 12-6 elbow rule, but if it makes it safer then fine. There are no small joint holds to ensure the joints attacked are strong enough to not make the event some snuff horror film. There are a lot of precautions.
Both fighters immediately stop when the bell sounds. It's not like they're in a blood rage wildly lashing out at each other in an animalistic ceremony. It is two consummate professionals who are composed and focused comparing martial art forms. They are completely in control of their actions.
I believe it is a beautiful sport. It takes years of training to build up the strength to routinely shoot and guard, you have to keep constant conditioning not to gas out in a single round. These men are athletes.
from an article awhile back. Thats really the only technology used to aid in judging or refereeing.According to a new rule passed by the Nevada State Athletic Commission Wednesday, referees in Nevada now have the opportunity to get a second look at a fight's end to determine its legality.
The final wording as passed: "A referee at the conclusion of a contest or exhibition stopped immediately due to an injury to an unarmed combatant pursuant to NAC 467.718 and after making a decision, may view a replay if available in order to determine whether the injury in question was caused a legal blow or a foul."
The rule addresses several controversial stoppages in recent history where a fighter lost a contest because the referee couldn't see an injury that forced a bout's stoppage.
A referee may now use instant replay to determine whether the action that caused the injury was legal or a foul and make a decision on the fight's result. Only a referee can decide whether to order a replay.
Only because MMA has taken over from it. Boxing always got a bad rap in my youth due to widely reported injuries and deaths. Safety has increased since then and it's not shown as much on free tv over here so it's not in the spotlight as much as it used to be.I would say it is. No difference between it and say boxing that never gets a bad rap for its content/violence
So the kind of stuff the WWE has been trying to pull lately?Its very, very sanitised and safe now. Despite the way they try to present it. Even one drop of blood or four clean punches can stop a fight.
The guys go through the best possible medical check-ups, before and after fighting, as well.
