    Any ideas how this MMA problem can be fixed? Seems like many fighters are doing this intentionally now.

    get little mini gloves for the end of fingertips

    File down the fingers

    Wrap a lot of cotton wool on fingers before the fight

    ONE warning, then dock a point.

    Don’t see how the gloves can be altered without hindering grappling

    This is a serious problem, a gouge can end a fighter’s career

    I thought they had designed gloves years ago to help with this issue,no idea what's taking so long to implement something to stop a major issue in MMA?
    I'll see if i can find the gloves somewhere

    Coming from a guy who regularly sources his information from nobodies and randoms on twitter to start negative threads and insult and spread lies,that's actually pretty funny.
    As i said there has been gloves already designed to go along with what Rogan said about UFC also designing some

    They can't really change the glove design much due to the wrestling/bjj techniques.

    The issue imo is that they are not penalizing the illegal fouls enough. How many times do you have to poke your opponents eyes before you get deducted a point ? The referees go through the rules with the fighters in the dressing rooms before the fights so really should you get 1, 2, or even 3 warnings after raking a guys eyes during the fight. If fighters were more regularly penalised for this with points off during the fight then they may change the way they fight. It's a dangerous foul that can badly affect the opponent for the remainder of the fight if they can fight on so dock points.

    Obviously you have a short attention span as there was several gloves if you scroll down

    The Pride-style gloves look like a step in the right direction.

    Groin-strikes are penalized and intentional cup-bashing has been all but eliminated. The same should hold true for clawing a fighter’s eyes.

    Replay reviews would help with enforcement.
