I just had my 2nd ammy fight in OK and everything is the same (gloves and no shin pads) except we can't elbow to the head and we can't use a plum to knee the head. I definitely feel like it prepares me for my eventual pro debut. Our hotel and first meal is paid for as well as our gas to travel. Would be nice to get a percentage of ticket sales as well. I thought any money for any reason given to an amateur wasn't allowed though.

Truth. Didn't realize how much this crap costs until actually getting into it myself... you PAY hundreds of dollars to fight, lol. Almost seems silly... I agree, though, that there needs to be some sort of unified rules for amateurs across the board. It makes sense not having elbows, and knees to the face in amateur. No need for more ways to get cut open when you aren't getting paid. Bigger gloves, and shin pads seem a bit ridiculous though in my opinion.

No elbows or knees to the head for any ammy in GA. After 3 fights they allow punches to the head on the ground. Shin guards and bigger gloves still also

I respectfully disagree. I think amateur competition in any sport lets the guys work up to pro levels. I don't think you should instantly be subject to everything the sport has to offer. Muay thai and BJJ tournaments are no different. Lower levels have different rules for more safety.And AS Temp said above amateurs have to pay for their own care so making it safer is beneficial for everyone involved. As I said above(and so did Temp) I like the different levels of amateur approach. Similar to BJJ tournaments wehre different levels are allowed to do more. A 9-0 ammy fighter who has been training for years should be closer to a pro rules but I don't think and 1-0 or 0-1 fighter should be fighting the same way. My two cents anyways.
