yes, they're don't see them as much as in k-1 fights but that's normal cus there's no ground fighting in k-1 plus it's easier to catch a kick with mma gloves then boxing gloves and then use that to take oponent down or counter him or most of the time low kicks are see high kick from time to time but that's mostly due to oponents eye being closed or using it as surprise cus people don't expect that, especially if fighter is not stand-up oriented...middle kicks are pretty rare but some high skilled stand up fighters like shogun or machida still use them effectively all the time so yeah, they're important if you know when to use them and how to use them!
