I don't know why they had to confuse us by giving the Democrat red gloves.

You'd think somebody (three somebodies!) who managed to fund and win a state-level election would be able to raise more than $4k for farking war orphans without making fools of themselves.

Dignity of the office, guys. Dignity of the office.

Oh, wait, nm. Missouri.

As a casual and extremely infrequent observer of MMA I'm pretty certain there are no rules. Are nut shots not fair game? It would seem pretty ridiculous that in a "sport" where the object is to neutralize your opponent that you couldn't kick him in the pills.

Also legislators beating each other up is AWESOME.

I'm a dirty liberal, and I still think the shot to the nuts was a dick move. You don't mess with the family jewels unless it's life or death.

There are plenty of rules. Groin attacks are a foul, but the ref seemed to think it was inadvertent.

true, they are a foul, but the party on the not so fun end of the kick/punch/knee is given the option of continuing the match, inadvertent or not.  Five minutes recovery time is normal.  If they can not continue, I am not sure on that outcome.  Continuing to strike the groin makes points start being shaved from the striker's score, then they are DQ'd.

Older guy should have been DQ'd right off: that was a straight kick to the groin.
