    Who decide MMA victory? 

    Victory in a match is normally gained either by the judges’ decision after an allotted amount of time has elapsed, a stoppage by the referee (for example if a competitor can not defend himself intelligently) or the fight doctor (due to an injury), a submission, by a competitor’s cornerman throwing in the towel, or by knockout.

    Knockout (KO): as soon as a fighter becomes unconscious due to strikes, his opponent is declared the winner. As MMA rules allow ground fighting, the fight is stopped to prevent further injury to an unconscious fighter.

    Submission: a fighter may admit defeat during a match by:

    • a tap on the opponent’s body or mat/floor
    • a verbal announcement/verbal tap

    Technical Knockout (TKO)

    Referee stoppage: The ref may stop a match in progress if:

    • a fighter becomes dominant to the point where the opponent can not intelligently defend himself and is taking a lot of damage
    • a fighter appears to be unconscious from a submission hold or due to a strike
    • a fighter appears to have a significant injury such as a cut or a broken bone

    Doctor Stoppage: the referee will call for a time out if a fighter’s ability to continue is in question as a result of apparent injuries, such as a large cut. The ring doctor will inspect the fighter and stop the match if the fighter is deemed unable to continue safely, rendering the opponent the winner. However, if the match is stopped as a result of an injury from illegal actions by the opponent, either a disqualification or no contest will be issued instead.

    Corner stoppage: a fighter’s corner men may announce defeat on the fighter’s behalf by throwing in the towel during the match in progress or between rounds.

    Decision: if the match goes the distance, then the outcome of the bout is determined by three judges. The judging criteria are organization-specific.

    Forfeit: a fighter or his representative may forfeit a match prior to the beginning of the match, thereby losing the match.

    Disqualification: a “warning” will be given when a fighter commits a foul or illegal action or does not follow the referee’s instruction. Three warnings will result in a disqualification. Moreover, if a fighter is injured and unable to continue due to a deliberate illegal technique from his opponent, the opponent will be disqualified.

    No Contest: in the event that both fighters commit a violation of the rules, or a fighter is unable to continue due to an injury from an accidental illegal technique, the match will be declared a “No Contest”.

      Good information, although it’s important to note that corner stoppage is not allowed in all states, and often not in pro-fights…just amateur MMA fights.

    MMA Pound-for-Pound Fighters by UFC 

    The Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) is a U.S based MMA promotion. In 2009 They published a MMA Pound for Pound list. Today i am going to share that best MMA Pound for Pound fighters list with you. there are many few webs which published that list in 2009. thats why I decided to share with you guys the Best MMA Pound for Pound Fighters of 2009 by UFC

    10 – Brock Lesnar
    It’s hard to include Lesnar in the pound-for-pound discussion given his hulking physical dimensions, but something tells me that the reigning Heavyweight Champion would be a formidable lightweight contender if Rick Moranis happened to accidently hit him with the shrink ray.

    9 – Michael Bisping
    Bisping is only 29 and just coming into his prime as a fighter. His only loss in the UFC came via split decision to the undefeated “Sugar” Rashad Evans, and he’s currently on a three-fight win streak.

    8 – Matt Hughes
    Hughes is another fighter who’s past his prime, but still a legitimate threat to anybody he gets into the Octagon with. Hughes still has the strength and experience to get it done.

    7 – Chuck Liddell
    Liddell’s best years may be behind him now, but that doesn’t mean he’s through. “The Ice Man” is still one of the best punchers in the business and he’s still got the ability to end fights quickly and in spectacular fashion.

    6 – Wanderlei Silva
    Although “The Axe Murderer” has lost two of his last three fights, he remains one of the most dangerous strikers in the sport and a force to be reckoned with in the Light Heavyweight division. sh” will get a shot at “Spider” Silva for the Middleweight Championship.

    5 – Forrest Griffin
    If guts were gold Griffin would be one of the wealthiest men in the world. The reigning Light Heavyweight Champion seems to win on sheer force of will some nights.

    4 – Kenny Florian
    “KenFlo” absolutely dismantled Joe Stevenson at UFC 91, emerging as the No. 1 contender to Penn’s Lightweight title. However, he’ll have to wait until the dust settles on the Penn-St. Pierre fight at UFC 94 for his title shot.

    3 – Quinton “Rampage” Jackson
    Jackson may no longer wear the gold, but his devastating hands and raw power remain as formidable as ever.

    2 – B.J. Penn
    Penn has matured as a fighter over the past two years, blossoming into one of the very best pound-for-pound fighters in the world. His consecutive wins over Jens Pulver, Joe Stevenson and Sean Sherk speak for themselves.

    1 – Anderson Silva
    Silva has completely dominated the Middleweight division since coming to UFC in 2006, showing that he’s truly a complete fighter and, pound-for-pound, the best in the UFC today.

    MMA Rules 

    MMA Pound for Pound present The rules for modern mixed martial arts competitions have changed significantly since the early days of vale tudo, Japanese shoot wrestling, and UFC 1, and even more from the historic style of pankration. As the knowledge about fighting techniques spread among fighters and spectators, it became clear that the original minimalist rule systems needed to be amended. The main motivations for these rule changes were protection of the health of the fighters, the desire to shed the image of “barbaric, no rules, fighting-to-the-death” matches, and being recognised as a sport.

    The new rules included the introduction of weight classes; as knowledge about submissions spread, differences in weight had become a significant factor. There are 9 different weight classes. These 9 weight classes include flyweight (up to 125 lb / 57 kg), bantamweight (126–135 lb / 61 kg), featherweight (136–145 lb / 66 kg), lightweight (146–155 lb / 70 kg), welterweight (156–170 lb / 77 kg), middleweight (171–185 lb / 84 kg), light heavyweight (186–205 lb / 93 kg), heavyweight (206–265 lb / 120 kg), and some organizations even go on to have a super heavyweight which is anything heavier than 265 pounds (120 kg).

    Small, open-fingered gloves were introduced to protect fists in punches, reduce the occurrence of cuts (and stoppages due to cuts) and encourage fighters to use their hands for striking to allow more captivating matches. Time limits were established to avoid long fights with little action where competitors conserved their strength. Matches without time limits also complicated the airing of live events. The time limits in most professional fights are three 5 minute rounds, and championship fights are normally five 5 minute rounds. Similar motivations produced the “stand up” rule, where the referee can stand fighters up if it is perceived that both are resting on the ground or not advancing toward a dominant position.

    Gloves were first mandatory in Japan’s Shooto promotion and were later adopted by the UFC as it developed into a regulated sport. Most professional fights have the fighters wear 4 oz gloves with little protection, whereas amateurs are required to wear a slightly heavier 6 oz glove for somewhat little more protection for the hands and wrist. In the U.S., state athletic and boxing commissions have played a crucial role in the introduction of additional rules because they oversee MMA in a similar way to boxing. Smaller shows may use more restrictive rules because they have less experienced fighters. In Japan and Europe, there is no regulating authority over competitions, so these organizations have greater freedom in rule development and event structure.

    Many U.S. states have a “no elbow policy” for amateurs to help protect the young fighters from serious injury by cuts or concussions. The use of a “12-6” elbow has been banned by several organizations along with restrictions on the use of knees to a downed opponent, dictated by one person having a hand, arm, or knee on the ground. Knees to the head of a grounded opponent is allowed in Japanese MMA. Headbutts are also widely prohibited because they require little effort and can quickly open cuts that might cause a fight to be stopped due to injury rather than because there is a winner.

    The boxer from Bolton – Amir Khan 

    At the age of 23, when most young men are finishing up their studies and thinking about what to do with their lives, Amir Khan has already made a name for himself in the world of boxing.

    This WBA world light-welter weight champion started boxing at the age of eight, when his father took him to a local boxing club near their home in Bolton, UK. “Amir was a very hyper active child, to burn off his extra energy and to calm him down I enrolled him in a boxing club, never thinking that one day he would become a champion,” says Amir’s proud father, Shujaat Khan.

    The initiative taken by Amir’s father was also supported by his mother: “I was very happy when my husband took him to the gym because then he would be tired when he came back and would not get up to mischief and just go straight to sleep,” says Falak Khan.

    Meanwhile, the young boy himself had never been happier. “Boxing really calmed me down and gave me positive energy. I still remember the sound of the punching bag and the sweat at the gym. I loved it and it made me go to the gym again and again,” says Amir in an exclusive interview with Dawn.

    A natural athlete, Amir was passionate about several sports in addition to boxing while growing up. He enjoyed football, rugby and long-distance running. In fact, Amir was at one point the 1,500 metres champion of greater Manchester. But on one fateful night, he chose to become a boxer. “On the night of my running competition, I had a boxing match,” recalls Amir. “I had to pick one and I picked boxing; this is my sport and I have given everything to it.” And that’s when the running stopped and the sparring started.

    Amir’s hard work and dedication to the sport was soon to pay dividends. In 2003, he became the European student champion and went on to win gold medals in almost all the competitions on both sides of the Atlantic. These wins qualified him for the 2004 Athens Olympics, where he won a silver medal after loosing out to an opponent older and more experienced than him.

    After winning the silver medal, Amir had become a household name in Britain, but he wanted more. The very next year, he turned pro and bid farewell to his amateur career in which he had won 100 matches and lost just two. As a pro, Amir fought in the lightweight category and soon went up a category to fight in the light- welterweight category, a decision which he reversed after he lost to French boxer Rachid Drilzane.

    Amir fought his way back in 2006 and went on to win back-to-back matches all the way up to 2008. Then, once again, his career hit turbulence when he split with his coach Oliver Harison and soon after lost to Bredis Prescott under Jorge Rubio’s guardianship. Amir’s promoter Frank Warren was not happy with how things were turning out for his boxer, and Rubio was soon sacked. This time, however, Team Khan roped in one of the best coaches in the business, Freddie Roach. “Getting Freddie Roach was the best move,” admits Amir. “My style has changed and now I have a world title. Freddie has changed my life.”

    With Freddie at the ring side, Amir went on to beat Andreas Kotlenick to win the WBA world light-welterweight championship belt. Subsequently, he defended his title, crushing Dmitry Salita in just 76 seconds. The stunning title defence against the American silenced critics and brought much admiration for the boxer.

    Now with a world title tied around his waist, Amir knows he is a hot commodity. “I am an exciting fighter, that’s what I bring to the crowds. Wherever I fight I have sell-out arenas. Hundreds of thousands of people are buying my fights on TV and I get more love than any other fighter in Britain.”

    Although he is cognisant of his fame and appeal, Amir manages not to seem vain in person. Signing autographs, posing for photographs, referring to his fans as ‘bro,’ Amir also makes every effort to mention how much he has learnt from senior boxers and how grateful he is for his trainers, coaches, fans, followers and, most importantly, his parents along with uncle ‘Taz’.

    Despite achieving so much so early in life Amir stays true to his roots. Living with his family in their home in Bolton, Amir looks forward to returning to his mother’s cooking after a long day of training. Even in the matter of matrimony, Amir says he will stick to tradition and never defy the will of his parents.

    Amir’s father Shujaat explains that, “we, as parents, have tried our best to keep our son close to us, our religion and our culture. I remember as kid Amir would go to school, then go for a run, take a shower, and then go to the mosque from where I would pick him and take him to the gym. This was his daily routine.”

    Given his familial ties to the country, Amir is planning on fighting in Pakistan and working towards the development of boxing here. “My dream is to fight in Pakistan one day,” he confesses.

    Until then, Amir plans to work hard and continue excelling in the ring. “I have had lots of ups and downs, but I have always been a fighter and I am strong willed,” he says. “It’s the extreme hard work I have put in this sport and that’s helped me reach so far.” With the support of his parents, the dedicated members of Team Khan, and millions of fans across the globe, especially in Britain and Pakistan, this young lad from Bolton is surely destined for world boxing domination.

    Rashad Evans Beats Thiago Silva by Decision
    Rashad Evans managed to hold on and survive a tough fight with Thiago Silva Saturday night at UFC 108, winning by unanimous decision despite nearly being knocked out in the third round. Evans then went on to take a verbal shot at his rival Rampage Jackson, who backed out of a scheduled fight with Evans to take a role in the upcoming A-Team movie.

    Evans said he wants to fight Rampage just as soon as Rampage is ready to get back into the Octagon.

    MMA pound for pound British rankings 

    BBC world officially announced MMA Pound for Pound British ranking 2009.  The list will be updated periodically and should be treated as a talking point. Let the debate begin!

    Ignoring weight, this subjective list takes into account fighters’ recent results, their skills, resilience and punching power.

    European cruiserweight champion David Haye

    1. David Haye

    – Heavyweight
    London (23-1, 21KOs)
    Haye did what he had to do to claim the WBA heavyweight crown from Nikolay Valuev. John Ruiz is next, and provided he wins that one, the Brothers Klitschko will follow.

    British and Commonwealth super middleweight champion Carl Froch

    2. Carl Froch

    – Super-middleweight
    Nottingham (26-0, 20KOs)
    Froch’s debut in the Super Six tournament against Andre Dirrell left both himself and fans frustrated, but a win is a win. However, he will have to be improved if he is to beat Mikkel Kessler.

    WBA welterweight champion Ricky Hatton

    3. Ricky Hatton

    – Light-welterweight
    Manchester (45-2, 32KOs)
    Hatton was knocked out in two rounds by pound-for-pound king Manny Pacquiao in Las Vegas, but rumour has it he could be back against Juan Manuel Marquez next summer.

    Amir Khan

    4. Amir Khan

    – Light-welterweight
    Bolton (22-1, 16KOs)
    Khan demolished Dmitriy Salita in 76 seconds in the first defence of his WBA belt and now has his eyes set on the United States. First up, preparing Manny Pacquiao for Floyd Mayweather.

    Kell Brook

    5. Kell Brook

    – Welterweight
    Sheffield (20-0, 13KOs)
    Originally a product of the same Sheffield gym as Naseem Hamed, Brook has been tipped for world honours. Defends his title against Michael Jennings next.

    Kevin Mitchell

    6. Kevin Mitchell

    – Lightweight
    Dagenham (30-0, 22KOs)
    Mitchell gave a classy display in beating Amir Khan’s conqueror Breidis Prescott and his next fight could be for the WBO belt. On the most recent evidence, he’s ready.

    British lightweight champion John Murray

    7. John Murray

    – Lightweight
    Manchester (28-0, 16KOs)
    Was stripped of his British title after coming in too heavy against Scott Lawton, but won it back with a fourth-round stoppage of Jon Thaxton in October. Will now be scenting bigger prizes.

    British, European and Commonwealth light welterweight champion Junior Witter

    8. Junior Witter

    – Light-welterweight
    Bradford (37-3-2, 22KOs)
    Witter’s hopes of fighting Amir Khan went up in smoke when he lost to Devon Alexander in trying to reclaim the WBC light-welterweight belt. Difficult to see what options he has left.

    Nathan Cleverly

    9. Nathan Cleverly

    – Light-heavyweight
    Cefn Forest (18-0, 8KOs)
    Cleverly, 22, already owns the British and Commonwealth titles and will challenge for the vacant European crown against Antonio Brancalion, in Italy, on 27 January.

    Rendall Munroe

    10. Rendall Munroe

    – Super-bantamweight
    Leicester (20-1, 8KOs)
    Munroe defended his European crown against Italy’s Simone Maludrottu in November, and could now challenge Japan’s WBC champion Toshiaki Nishioka.
