- MMA gloves
- No leg strikes of any type
- Takedowns permitted, Ground and Pound permitted, but you only get 10 seconds as soon as you hit the ground to do the damage, you can do it as many times as you want but at 10 seconds, you stand. Also throws permitted to do damage like in Thai fights.
- No time limit on clinch fighting, obviosuly.
- Both guys get good time to prepare and prepare well.
I think with the proper preparation, this would be an interesting bout. Obviously John L's mastery of dirty boxing would be a level up on most's standards and John L did wrestle quite a bit and wouldn't be out of his element with the 5 minute ground spurts, even though Couture is several levels up.
Who do you take?
