Well, since his fight didn't allow kicks, elbows, knees, or takedowns it was a really a modified boxing match. He has shown that he has no interest in learning any other aspect of MMA besides boxing and the whole deal with the HIV controversy leads me to believe he will never fight in a MMA fight (you can't really consider this last fight a MMA fight).

according to his opponent after the fight it was all tommy's doing. i dont remember where i read it but to sum it up the guy said tommy doesnt want to fight mma he just wants a paycheck, and also mentioned that his best chance going into the fight was to take tommy down and tie him into a pretzel.

fighting in MMA with no ground fighting, he is not ready for MMA.

As cowcatcher said, the rules were modified because Morrison wanted them to be. Also, the commission wasn't involved in this fight. It was held on a indian reservation and was unsanctioned which was strange since if he really wanted to prove he didn't have HIV, getting this sanctioned would have been the way to do it.

I want to vote for the "will never fight in MMA" option. This was not an MMA match.
