Hi, I'm Marcos Avellan, and we're gonna go over the unified rules for MMA. If you've ever watched the fight and were confused by the rules, we're gonna cover them right now. There are lots of rules in the unified MMA rules, but you need to be familiar with these basic ones right now. For one, you cannot kick or knee to the head a grounded opponent. What makes an opponent grounded is that if anything other than the soles of their feet on the ground. So if they have their hand posted on the ground with their feet, with their feet or their shin or their knee, that makes them grounded, and means you cannot strike them in the head with your, with you knee or with your foot. But the person on their back can hit upwards to the head with an up kick if I'm not grounded. Elbows, you could throw elbows, but you cannot come from the sky to the ground. This is the only illegal elbow. And then the next major thing is not hitting to the back of the head or down the spinal cord. It's as if you have a Mohawk going down, all the way down to your, to your tailbone that you cannot hit that area. And the best way to win is by knock out, referee stoppage or by submission where the opponent will tap out either tapping the mat or the person or saying so verbally. And if no one taps out or gets knocked out, it will end by just a decision, which is based on dominance.
