I'm all for some violence when watching MMA but this should never be allowed in the major organizations.
So basically everyone in Pride (and all other orgs that allow(ed) soccer kicks) was just terrible as soccer kicking??

No. Shogun, as an example, was very good at it. That doesn't change the fact that soccer kicks are a clear as day example of excessive force in MMA and someone carried out in a body bag waiting to happen.

I equate Soccer Kicks, with what criminals do when they mug someone! Soccer Kicks are ugly, highly dangerous and sinks the MMA fightgame down to the lowest level possible!

I was thinking, if a professional soccer player landed that kick...it would have been brain damage...so yah maybe it is dangerous. Normally we see it in short range so less momentum vs a soccer player who gets a running start...that would be so game over.

Either way I'm all for knees and soccer kicks, but no stomping.

I'm sorry but I think that gif is vile. Zoro himself said he didn't really enjoy throwing the kick. Soccer kicks brutal at the best of times but that one was just plain unneccasary.

MMA is now on FOX, and is trying to get itself viewed as a legit sport, soccer kicks like that harm the sports chances of becoming mainstream so much.

Well remember that fight was in Asia where soccer kicks are just a part of MMA. That international MMA Federation doesn't have enough power to regulate world wide. Until then soccer kicks will happen.

I like them, but I understand why they are illegal.

Kicking is a part of fighting. Whether it be on the ground or standing. With that being said, it really doesn't have a place in regulated MMA competitions. (Soccer kicks) It would destroy any hope of continuing in the direction it is going and I would think they would lose sponsorship dollars as well.

It is already viewed as being too barbaric. Why in the world would someone suggest letting this become legal just as MMA is becoming more accepted?
