Two recent fights, Chris Weidman vs. Gegard Mousasi at UFC 207 and Eddie Alvarez vs. Dustin Poirier at UFC 212, have put the spotlight on the new "downed opponent" rules, and not in a positive way. Both fights ended in controversy, and it's clear that the new rule changes--which have not been universally adopted--are causing problems for the fighters, officials, fans and sport itself.

Recognizing the dilemma, the New Jersey State Athletic Control Board, which was instrumental in developing the unified rules, has written an open letter to the Association of Boxing Commissions. This letter expresses their concerns and offers ways forward to ensure fighter safety, which is their primary concern. I believe this letter is spot on in addressing the confusion in both the implementation of the rules and of the rules themselves. I urge the Association of Boxing Commissions to give serious thought to NJSACB's recommendations.

You can read the letter in its entirety below:
