announcements once an opponent has done

submission this is also known as tapping
02:41
out
02:43
points if a knockout or submission
02:45
hasn’t happened when the time runs out
02:47
so a group of judges will have scored

each fighter based on their performance
02:51
for every round that they are caught in
02:53
the fighter with the highest amounts of
02:56
points at the end of time wins
02:58
this is known as winning by decision
03:01
that’s pretty much the gist of the UFC
03:04
or mixed martial arts but there’s a few
03:06
of the things that you’ll need to know
03:07
before watching a fight for example
03:10
disqualification a fighter can be
03:13
disqualified for failing to make rates
03:15
or by being given three warnings for
03:17
illegal moves once the third warning has
03:20
been issued the referee will stop the
03:22
fights immediately a disqualification
03:24
can also be called if a fighter has been
03:26
injured by an illegal move that seemed
03:28
intentional forfeits a fighter can
03:32
announce his own defeats before a match
03:34
begins if he is injured or unable to
03:36
fight this is known as a forfeit no
03:41
contest
03:41
if both fighters violate the rules or if
03:44
a fighter is injured by an unintentional
03:46
illegal action and no contest may be
03:48
told this is where no fighter wins the
03:52
bounce no contests are rarely called in
03:55
MMA fights technical knockout when a
03:59
referee doctor or fighters corner crew
04:02
feels that a fighter is no longer able
04:04
to defend himself or that it’s too
04:06
dangerous to let them carry on fighting
04:07
they can stop the fights and the
04:09
opponent will win by technical knockout
