What are the rules for the fighting tourney on TV. I saw prelims where they wore BDUs and seemed to avoid punching the face. Then the finals had them wearing shorts with no knees on the ground. Also heard you mention about battlefield fight AARs. Can you publish these? Does the Geneva Convention require that the soldiers honor the tap? :)Did the fights include chokes till the insurgents were blue in the face or a lot of joint hyper extensions?

StephenL,

Preliminary rounds – Standard Rules, basically modified BJJ. The main diference is that takedown points are awarded by what position the fighters end up in. For example, if you do an inside hook to end up in my guard it is the same result as if I pulled guard so the points are the same. Also, a takedown to side control is better than to inside the guard so it is rewarded better.

Semi-finals – Intermediate Rules, basically pancrase style rules. Open hand strikes to the head, closed fist to the body, kicks to the head.

Finals – Advanced Rules, basically standard amateur MMA rules.

Matt
