After 17 years, the New Jersey Athletic Commission has changed the rules where fighters are required to wear protective shin guards. Fighters can choose whether or not to wear shin guards, and we are expecting almost all fighters to choose no shin guards. This changes the entire dynamic of the fight, allowing more exciting action on the feet, and opens up more opportunities for submissions. RFL 1 will be the first Amateur Event with the new ruleset. RFL 1 is scheduled to take place on Saturday April 23rd at the Rahway Recreation Center.
