Arizona has learned its lesson: What works for football, basketball, soccer and the like does not work for MMA.

Following this past weekend's "M-1 Challenge 27: Magalhaes vs. Zayats" event, the Arizona Boxing & MMA Commission has decided against using a whistle to mark the 10-second warning that accompanies the end of a round.

I have to question why the fighters need to know there is 10 seconds left in the round? Makes no sense.

I agree, how many times have you seen guys hear the warning and they actually start backing up to avoid getting hit. I understand the concept of it but I would rather there be just the bell to end the round/fight.
