Doh! I've watched a ton of Pride events and didn't really notice they didn't allow elbows. IMO, ramming a knee into a guy's head and neck area when he's on the ground is much more dangerous to a fighter's health than an elbow. However I can understand not allowing elbows in the context of preventing cuts. Blood and doctor stoppages don't make for great fights.
