Gary Shaw went on to say at the press conference, "We want electrifying fighters... we don’t want two guys to lay on the ground and... the fans turn on Showtime and they see two guys laying there. We want to give them action, and I believe that's been the success of the sport."
They've got to be kidding themselves!
I will not watch or order this PPV if they put this rule into play. I watch the UFC and Pride because of the ground game as well as the standup. I'm sorry but it seems that they're just setting themselves up for failure with this kind of thinking.
