A list of MMA "moves" are listed in the thread "What the Heck is an "Uchi Mata"?". Some people such as Eliath have created bootlegs for this system ( Eliath has done many bootlegs, he may have them in the section or the Fan MAde Fun section. I believe that some of them are in the library Paint is constructing). As for the next thing to get, get the latest POW set which introduces trainers and move toward less wrestling pro style and more towards mixed martial arts.
I have a couple of questions. What else should I purchase?
If you like the characters, the writing and have interest in the overall history of the promotion, you may want to strongly consider getting the entire series. You can find game overviews for most every CPC/POW Set here. CPC 2109-2121 marked eleven card stock releases, armed only with wrestling stats. If you are solely interested in the MMA aspect, the CPC/POW Throwdown package is a printable PDF that introduced the use of those mechanics while also maintaining the wrestling option. POW Revival 2122 & POW Prophecy 2123 were also PDF releases that continued along those same lines. Check out the online store for any of those editions. Ordering protocol changed with the release of POW 2124. You can find info on that set here.
Are there people creating bootlegs and are there any rules for creating them?
Comparatively, the production of fan made MMA focused material is nowhere near the pace of bootleg wrestling cards. I think the concept has growth potential, but for whatever reason it hasn't been fully realized. Perhaps you will be 'The One' to lead the way!
Finally, is there a site which lists the names of MMA moves and what they are?
There are so many styles it would be tough to find any one online source that would be totally comprehensive. For positional grappling, I'd suggest this BJJ Technique Library. If you want an emphasis on context (what techniques work best from which positions) I'd recommend beginning under the 'Select A Starting Position' column and then print out the lists from each category (Guard, Mount, Side Control, etc). Just be aware that if you search by topic (ie. the Choke Library) some of the moves assume use of a gi. So if you are stating a card with the Clock Choke, for that idea to be practical, the fighter should probably have the proper attire.
The world of stand up is also very wide open. There are intricacies that make something like 'Dirty Boxing' different from Western or Eastern style, etc. For high percentage striking and clinch work, this Muay Thai Techniques site has a decent breakdown of what is generally trained among fighters.
