Default New rule for MMA

I think there should be a standing eight count in MMA. This would virtualy end controversy for quick match stoppages. It would give the ref sometime to look at the fighter and then determine if the match should end. and if the fighter can continue we all get to see more fighting in a match that otherwise might have been stoped to early. this gives the fighter taking the beating to show he is not done and can continue rather than just stopping the fight because he is inactive.

What happens if a fighter is beating the crap out of the other guy, so the ref stops it for the standing 8 count, lets the fight continue and the guy who got the count some how pulls of a victory, it kinda screws the guy who was winning in the first place.....

Tito definitely got screwed when McCarthy temporarily stopped the fight to check Guy's bleeding, then Guy went on to guillotine Tito.

Just like in boxing well thats the way it is. Its better than a guy who loses a fight because of a quick stoppage. the fighter loses the fans lose ect. He still gets a 10-8 round decision and has to fight another round the same way in boxing. It makes no sense not to have a standing eight its fair. If a fighter is ok to go it goes on if not the ref can stop it after the count or before he finishes. It would make the refs job easier aswell

Its the fighters resposibility not to get caught in a sub. Ask the same fighter who has to give his apponent a standing eight if he would appreciate some over zellus ref stopping the fight early on him.

Both valid points, but if a ref jumped in and saved a guy I was about to finish and he came back to beat me I would be pissed.....
