sux@bjj -  I have watched plenty of UFC events and an eye poke is pretty rate. Tate enough not to change equipment imo! Phone Post

I have no idea what you are trying to say.

 

It should be a rule not to have your fingers or thumbs going at your opponent's face.  Closed fists if you're striking or it's a point.

 

Easy.

lol...sorry, was posting from my phone which my hands are too big for!

the point i attempted to make was that as a long-time viewer of ufc events, an "eye poke" is something that i've seen...however it seems very rare. in other words, completely changing the sanctioned equipment (gloves in this case) is overkill, imo.

i don't disagree about the "punch with a closed fist" thing, however maybe that's something a ref should look out for...warn if done in excess, maybe take away a point if continues..?

FWIW, for some reason I don't recall a lot of eye pokes before the Zuffa era.

WoodenPupa - FWIW, for some reason I don't recall a lot of eye pokes before the Zuffa era.

Zuffa means eyepoke in Italian.

BenBJJ - Yellow cards.

unless you put them over the eyes as a means of protection, they're not going to stop this epidemic

 

Rogan, speak on this
