In this case, they must not be deviated from, except in extraordinary circumstances and with the written permission of the IRC or Chief Referee (Supervisor) of the tournament.

The World Mixed Martial Arts Fighting Championship Rules and Regulations may also be used for non-sanctioned events. In this instance, we would ask that the promoter or user of these Rules & Regulations include the following line in their promotion “This tournament will be governed by the current Rules and Regulations of the World Mixed Martial Arts Fighting Championship.”
