Ultimate Fighting Penalizes Champ!

WOW!!! All I can say is WOW!. And, Hey NFL, are you watching this?

Mixed Martial Arts champ Jon “Bones” Jones was stripped of his light-heavyweight title after his arrest in New Mexico for hit-and-run. Per the UFC announcement, Jones’ behavior violated the organization’s athlete code of conduct and is the latest in a “string of misbehavior” for Bones.

C”MON!!!!  This guy is an Ultimate Fighting Champion. What misbehavior? I will tell you what misbehavior. This UFC is a tight, well run, honorable, moral operation. Here is just a sample of the many in-ring actions NOT tolerated, that result in penalties and even suspensions:

Head butting

Eye gouging of ANY kind


Spitting on an opponent (I guess it’s OK to spit elsewhere)

Hair pulling

Groin attacks of ANY kind

Small joint manipulation (large joints are fair game)

Kicking to the kidney with a heel (kicking non heels is OK)

Kicking the head of a grounded opponent

Holding the shorts of an opponent

Using abusive language

It just goes on and on. I have never understood the attraction the UFC provides its many fans. But at least I now understand that this is a clean operation with honorable, moral combatants.  If the NFL held to this same set of standards they would run out of players by Halloween.
