The addition of knees to the head of a downed opponent to the Unified Rules of MMA sign now

This has been long been a problem with MMA in the US, and with the buyout of Pride by the Fertittas, it is now afflicting MMA on an international scale. I'm of course talking about the lopsided Unified Rules of MMA, as handed down by the NSAC, which gives a much greater upper hand to wrestlers over strikers.

The key flaw within the Unified Rules, is the banning of knees to the head of a downed opponent. For many years now the quality of fighting within the US has been brought down by half-hearted takedown attempts, that when stuffed, lead to stalling. For quite a while now wrestlers have been able to attempt takedown after takedown, with litte consequence, and eek out weak decision wins over other fighters. This not only makes an uninteresting fight, but a frustrating one.

So I propose that MMA fans everywhere strongly urge Zuffa, Dana White, the Ferttitas and the NSAC, to revise the Unified Rules to allow knee strikes to the head, and make the mat a level playing where both fighters can fully exploit their toolset.

With Knees to the Head in place Wrestlers with be forced to perfect their takedowns and stick them properly, otherwise they will lose the upper hand. Just as strikers already have to perfect their takedown defence.
