    I was curious about the rules and found the following:

    "Only punches are allowed, but they will wear MMA gloves which Mir insists "makes the punching different - like playing tennis on grass or clay, a small detail can change how the game is played".

    Perhaps the strangest yet, a rule has been approved to allow fighting in the clinch. Where boxers are traditionally separated by the referee, Mir and Pulev will be permitted to hold onto each other and continue punching."

    Hammer fists and spinning back costs are allowed too, but only striking with fists and clinching and punching or hammerfisting from the clinch is allowed

    Lol. If it's strictly stand up no kicks, Pulev is going to jab Mir to death.

    The rules benefit Mir as he has experience fighting within that type of striking environment. He also gets to clinch wrestle and dirt box. If Pulev comes in without training thinking it’s a super easy W then it’s a fight he can lose.

    Amen. Could get messy for pulev. Pulev has got a dog in him but he has no inside game. With different gloves too. All suits mir better

    So the format is still music entertainment mixed with fighting. They should've had Briggs vs Pulev. Damn they even mixed in some WWE fake confrontations lol.

    MMA guy came to fight, and is benefiting from the clinch and dirty boxing. This is an interesting concept, and im definitely into it.

    They are innovating with Triad, looks interesting. You can't really run in that ring. That dude got pushed out of the ring. They should add some microbikini female fighting too.
