Illegal Knees

In the The jardein vs alexzander fight keith Was kneed in the face while he was sitting down. That wasnt called, but was it an illegal knee. If not what is the rule then.

Not like it would have mattered just wondering.

that is indeed the rule. no knees to a downed opponent. i brought up the same point and got a lot of flak for it even though i said it wouldn't have changed anything. but for all the flack for it i got i also got a good post pointing out it looked to be in the collorbone. i will havn't gotten around to rewatching again though so can't verify whether this is true or not.

Omgoodness. Dude they did like 5 replays, Jardine was bent over, his head tilted down, H.A kneed him and yes his THIGH did brush his face, but the vast majority of the strike was his KNEE to Jardines upper chest. In fact I dont even know if his thigh did touch his face.

If it was a knee his head would have shot up, it didnt, his upperbody on the other hand did jolt up.

I thought it was an illegal knee for sure at first too but when they showed the replay from a different angle I realized it didnt connect.

after rewatching from the fence angle the knee indeed hit around the collarbone. the part that was throwing me off is that Jardines head snapped a bit when it hit, but it appears that it was just the thigh connecting with his chin

yeah it was but it didnt land the way it would have too to make it illegal, i still think the ufc needs to say something to the guy, i didnt like how he acted at all, he seemed to enjoy the fact he hurt jardine, but that knee coulda been worse if he had connected fully

My 12 fighter army is as follows:

Dan Henderson
Mac Danzig
Mirko "the man" Filipovic
Anderson Silva
Fedor and Aleks
Mark Hunt
BJ Penn
Q. Rampage Jackson
Karo Parisyan
John Fitch
Frank Shamrock

It connected but it was on the upper part of Keith's chest, ruling it legal
