List Of UFC Rules To Win A Fight

Views: 20 | Updated On: | By Jitu Jangir

Here is the full list of UFC Rules or a decision To Win A Fight. The current rules for the Ultimate Fighting Championship were originally established by the New Jersey Athletic Control Board.

The set of "Unified Rules of Mixed Martial Arts" that New Jersey established has been adopted in other states that regulate mixed martial arts, including Nevada, Louisiana, and California.

These rules are also used by many other promotions within the United States, becoming mandatory for those states that have adopted the rules, and so have become the standard de facto set of rules for professional mixed martial arts across the country.

Submission: a fighter taps the mat or his opponent, verbally submits, or communicates being in pain (such as by yelling) to a degree that causes the referee to stop the fight. Also, a technical submission may be called when a fighter either loses consciousness or is on the verge of or suffers a serious injury while in a hold.

Knockout: a fighter is put into a state of unconsciousness resulting from any legal strike.

Technical Knockout (TKO): If the referee decides a fighter cannot continue, the fight is ruled as a technical knockout. Technical knockouts can be classified into three categories:

Referee Stoppage:(the referee ends the fight because one fighter is deemed unable to intelligently defend himself)

Doctor Stoppage: (a ringside doctor decides that it is unsafe for one fighter to continue the bout, due to excessive bleeding or physical injuries)

Corner Stoppage: (a fighter's cornerman signals defeat for his fighter)

Judges' Decision: Depending on scoring, a match may end as:

Unanimous Decision: (all three judges score a win for fighter A)

Majority Decision: (two judges score a win for fighter A, one judge scores a draw)

Split Decision: (two judges score a win for fighter A, one judge scores a win for fighter B)

Technical Decision: (a fighter is rendered unable to continue as a result of an unintentional illegal element or move, resulting in a decision based on the finished and unfinished rounds if the number of rounds to be judged is sufficient)

Unanimous Draw: (all three judges score a draw)

Majority Draw: (two judges score a draw, one judge scoring a win)

Split Draw: (one judge scores a win for fighter A, one judge scores a win for fighter B, and one like

Technical Draw: (the bout ends in a manner similar to that of a technical decision, with the judges' scores resulting in a draw)

Disqualification: a fighter intentionally executes an illegal move that is considered by the referee or opponent to be injurious or significant enough to negatively alter the opponent's performance should the fight continue, resulting in the opponent's victory.

Forfeit: a fighter fails to compete or intentionally and prematurely ends the bout for a reason besides injury, resulting in the opponent's victory.

No Contest: A fighter is rendered unable to continue or compete effectively as a result of an unintentional illegal element or move and there is not a sufficient number of finished rounds to be judged to make a technical decision viable, or both fighters are rendered unable to continue or compete effectively.

Also, a fight may be ruled a no-contest if the original outcome of the bout is changed due to unsatisfactory or illegal circumstances, such as a premature stoppage or a fighter's testing positive for banned substances.

In the event of a draw, the fighters' total points don't need to be equal (see, e.g., UFC 41 Penn vs. Uno, or UFC 43 Freeman vs. White). However, in a unanimous or split draw, each fighter does score an equal number of win judgments from the three judges (0 or 1, respectively). Additionally, if a title fight ends in a draw, the defending champ retains the title.
