Eye poke warnings should carry over to next fight

When a fighter gets warned for eye pokes they should get 2 or 3 strikes total then from then on the commission should tag them as a repeat offender and they should no longer get warnings in future fights. Once you are tagged as a cheat offender you should get an automatic point deduction for 1st offense in all future fights. If you have more than 5 eye pokes in your career then you are automatically disqualified for an eye poke in all future fights. This would stop eye poke cheaters from intentionally cheating with eye pokes.

If you disagree then you’re dumb  

Nah

Or if a fighter is continually having their fingers out and already warned by the ref and happens to eye poke it should be 1 point maybe even 2 right off the rip. 

Some form of penalty for repeat offenders is actually a good idea

Fighting clean should be rewarded

Fouls should be punished every time

Agreed. No warnings first.

…although the gloves themselves need to be fixed first. Curve the thing over like other orgs so we can eliminate 90% of the accidental eye pokes.

Nobody should ever get poked in the eye, that’s an automatic point taken imo. Look at guys like Jones and DC who clearly do it on purpose, it’s unacceptable.

I agree. A fighter who has a history of doing it should have a much shorter leash. Cormier and Jones being the prime example. They know they can get away with it at least once or twice and are choosing to game the rules.

First off, they need to improve the gloves to take away the chance of a poke.

If not, then give the initial warning at the pre-fight meeting with an understanding that if it happens in the ring, it is an automatic point deduction.
