I was sitting back and thinking about this today, what if the UFC added different rules to certain fights? Like different types of matchups, let's say like, no takedowns in the first round of the fight, or for a certain period of time, to keep it standing? I'm not saying they would put it into every fight, just certain ones. Like for instance if Penn was fighting GSP or something, they both look for the takedown the majority of the time and rely on their BJJ, and it would be interesting to see them in a standup battle. I think it would be a great thing to add to the mix, just to spice it up a bit and make it interesting, different stipulations would be really awesome to see. It would force one dimensional fighters to become multi dimensional, strikers and grapplers both having to use the opposite of what they are used to and have mastered. You can get really creative with it, no cage match jokes please.
What do all of you think?
