    Quick breakdown if you don't have time to read the article right away:

    1. Back of the head is now the "mohawk" rule that BJM described.
    2. The 12 to 6 o'clock elbow rule is gone. All elbows are legal as long as they are thrown to legal areas.
    3. No hand over the mouth to disrupt breathing ala Henderson/Silva, its now a foul.
    4. Revised official weightclasses. No one is going to follow these.
    Jacob Schlottke---Gone too soon, and the world is a little less bright because of it. RIP, brother.

    One, two, Evans is coming for you...
