  • Time Between Bouts
    This new rule is to avoid a fighter, fighting on a "Different Promotional" event less then 7 days after a fight or a fighter fighting too soon after being defeated by a Knock Out or TKO by too many striking blows.
    • If the fighter is fighting in a TOURNAMENT within a 3 day time span and does not lose by KO/TKO and is not cut or injured during their bout, the "Time Between Bout" Rule does not apply.
      • 6-08: Fighters in a TOURNAMENT MUST be checked by a Licensed MD after EACH BOUT to assure they are in good health to continue to the next round.


    • TIME BETWEEN BOUTS
      • 7 days or 168 Hours before stepping into the ring or cage to fight again.
        • Example: If you fight on Friday night the 1st at 6:PM, you cannot fight again until the following weekend, Friday might the 8th at 6:01 PM
          • There are other reasons for this rule as well. These reasons will also explain why a fighter can fight multiple times within 2-3 days if only on the SAME event. Such as;
            • It stops a fighter from booking back to back fights where as the second fight's promoter risks him not being on his event if injured the week before.
            • It gives the sanctioning bodies and the MMA Databases a chance to make sure all the fighters results are made public. An amateur fighter could fight as a pro and turn around and fight as an amateur a week later because the news had not gotten out yet he fought pro.
