The free interpretation of the fundamental rules of MMA did not lead to anything good. Someone wrote a letter to Sherdog, and this site is number one in fight statistics. Now the fights of the organization, held in accordance with the new rules, are transferred to the exhibition section. Kamil Hajiyev spoke about the current situation:
“Three tournaments have passed since the introduction of the new rule. Everyone is happy, everyone likes the new rules, well, except for those who lost, of course, everyone is happy, they say, it’s a great experiment. The fights end up in Sherdog, Tapology, everywhere. And then some bad person wrote a letter to Sherdog, and they transfer the results of these fights to the category of exhibition fights.
Naturally, we do not want to substitute any of the guys, because for many Sherdog is a measure of their professional level. Therefore, we are forced to return to the old rules, no matter how sad I am.”
By the way, most likely, the complaint came from the United States, after the defeat of Zuluzinho there were many dissatisfied with the new rules. There is also a good moment – AMC Fight Nights was recognized in the states, it turned out to be a good advertisement.
