I did hear about this. Its a tragic thing. I'd be interested in learning how well ran the African circuit that this MMA fight was conducted on is, as far as treatment of the fighters before and after, etc.

With that said, I don't think there are many rule changes that need to happen in MMA. Unfortunate things like this will happen. It happens in lots of different sports; pitches hitting batters in the head in baseball, race car drivers dying in crashes, football players dying on the field, and the list goes on.

For the nature of what MMA is, the death rate is really low when compared to the number of competitors. Like I said, it is tragic, and it deserves to be investigated, but I don't think it requires over-reaction and immediate legislation to totally re-write the rule books on MMA competition.
