LAS VEGAS – The Association of Boxing Commissions today approved several measures that will modify the Unified Rules of MMA, including a rule to amend MMA judging criteria, as well as clearing up the definition of some existing policies. In a landslide vote of 42-1 (with Mississippi reps abstaining and the Tennessee commission passing on the chance to vote), the influential regulatory body made official several changes, potentially changing the complexion of a ruleset considered to be the standard-bearer for regulators both in the U.S. and around the world. The vote was registered today at the 28th Annual Association of Boxing Commissions Conference, which took place at Las Vegas’ Monte Carlos Resort and Casino. The poll followed a presentation by the ABC’s Rules Committee, which is chaired by former Bellator play-by-play man and current Kansas commissioner Sean Wheelock.
