12-to-6 elbow strikes are ok: Matt Hume’s keynote address at the ONE Asia MMA Summit

In his capacity as the ONE Fighting Championship’s chief official and head referee, MMA mainstay Matt Hume delivered the keynote address on day two of the inaugural ONE Asia MMA Summit 2012 held at the Marina Bay Sands, Singapore.

While his speech was replete with industry insights on how to grow the sport safely, and inspiring anecdotes concerning the fighters under his charge, perhaps the portions that proved the most enlightening were his clear explanations of ONE FC’s ‘blended’ ruleset — a combination of Unified and PRIDE rules — as well as the promotion’s judging criteria, which depart from the commonly-used 10-point must system.

This post is getting needlessly prolix, so I shall leave the authority — Mr. Hume — to regale you with delightful tales of 12-to-6 elbow strikes, grounded knee strikes and soccer kicks to the head.

Enjoy.

In the first video, Hume alludes to "three tests". The following clip reveals what these tests are, along with his thoughts on the "ridiculous nature" of the 12-to-6 elbow strike ban.
