Agree with all this. Dude in the vid was a tool. His hand Kept bouncing off the floor anyway. Lol at me for waiting for a replay.

A step in the right direction, but probably a bit too subjective in the wording, which will no doubt lead to a controversy or two. Still, it's a change for the better, IMO.

I'm not a fan of soccer kicks. I find them cheap, unsporting and really the only sort of thing you'd do if you were in a real streetfight.

That said, if someone bear crawls to the center of the cage I'm all for them getting punted in the face.

I was just about to say this. If it's left to the Ref's discretion, how does the fighter know he has the right to knee the dude in the face?

If I were a fighter and I thought my opponent was putting one hand on the canvas in an attempt to get a foul (as they mentioned) and decided to KHTFO, what's stopping the ref from saying the guy was in fact a downed opponent?

IMO downed opponent should be someone that had at least a knee on the ground (and not while shooting for a TD)
This put one hand down, picking it up, and back and forth shouldn't be considered a "downed opponent".

At least they are starting to make some corrections.

The video of that dude getting kicked in the face when he was "downed" made me so happy.

This person is not grounded.



And neither is he



Or this guy who got KTFO

This is a good change and if for nothing else but to keep dumb asses like the guy in video who got soccer kicked from trying to draw the foul, it's a bs tactic and he got what he deserved. I thought soccer kicks to the head were illegal in the UFC anyway?
