Flexible rules change to protect the health of boxers

Types of winning an MMA tournament
As soon as the player is unconscious due to a hit, his opponent is immediately declared a winner. However, the MMA rules allowing lying on the floor, the match only stops to prevent damage in this case.
Boxers can accept defeat during a match by flapping 3 times on the opponent, flapping 3 times to the floor to surrender (often called “tap out”). If both hands are locked, it is possible to speak in defeat.
Stop the game from the corner of the ring
Throw a white towel to give in (usually to protect the stubborn boxer who does not tap out even though he is about to be seriously injured when his arms and legs are locked).
