Brain damage somehow allows you to keep fighting, like Diego Sanchez or Nate Diaz...

A completely destroyed knee doesn't.

Simple as that.

Dumb comment from a smart man, if this gets popular trust you will see a bunch of sidelined fighters who may not even get the chance to come back 100%.

When i say popular i don't mean it in a like jones way, i mean in in a wait for a jab heavy on the front leg way.

Problem is, banning this will/would make shit sooooooo much more complicated, people faking kicks to the knee etc is just a starting point. Bad idea to ban but fucked up if people start timing it,

Btw brain damage only affects them (mostly) when they are retired already, not our problem much is it?

Ya'all know what? I got one more thing to say, when i started training i knew what the chances of me getting ko'd were, they were high eventually, i also decided to go ahead because i knew that if i tapped in time, my knee would never be bent in the direction it is not supposed to be bent. Fuck all chances were given here and its not fair.

Whittaker threw a bunch against Adesanya and Israel defended them. Rather than banning a move, which is total nanny-state BS in my opinion, why can't guys learn to defend?

They can't be banned clearly the more i think about it because of the shit fest a fight could become having them in place.

However the learning curve could be very costly with those kicks, no one in training can attack 100% timing a jab can they? Only in fights.

They should just not be used.

Before you know it. elbows will be next. Who knows what else.
Let it stand. It's a brutal move, I agree. I don't really like it, but I don't like a lot of things but I tolerate them all the same.

Learn. To. Defend. It.

Yeah I agree with the 2 Jabronies above me, we need 12-6 elbows and soccer kicks back to stop fighters like Khabib, Usman and GSP from gaming the system.

I've been saying this since Jon Jones started doing it. It should absolutely be banned. This isn't bloodsport.

When a fighter is in a choke or arm bar etc they have the option to tap or face consequences. With a strike like that the damage is done instantly, and could ruin a career in the blink of an eye.

If we see a big named fighter lose or alter a career I think more ppl will start to want the strike banned.

I don't mind kicks to the knee, but that side kick to the knee is some bs

:lol:

No it's not bro. Bloodsport was "to the death." LITERALLY! The were offing people and they just sweeped the lifeless corpse off the bloody mat and ran the next fight.

Ufc fighters are pro athletes and should be protected as such. These guys have careers and families.

There's nothing soft about protecting athletes. During the most premative stages UFC wasn't a bloodsport. And certainly not now.

Everyone here who wants to ban moves needs to be given a safe space where they can live happily without any stress and consider changing their gender to nonbinary. :fu:

Thanks, I'll go do just that! :lol: :lol:

Seriously, they won't ban anything. A leg kick is a leg kick. But if fighters master the timing and precision, we might see some sad career ending moments and that'll suck.
