I don't know, I didn't actually see it but from what I read it didn't really sound like an illegal maneuver. Seems retarded to not be able to knee to the head when you're in side mount. It's not realistic nor does it let fighters utilize all of their abilities. Many rules make sense (No gouging, hair pulling, small joint manipulation) for fighter safety, but things like that (And the UFC's "no kneeing downed opponents) are kind of retarded in my opinion.

It seems like the better fighter lost because of a technicality. Ah well, if Gracie can be proud of that win than that's sad for him.

I'm happy Renzo won but I'd rather had seen him submit Frank instead of winning by DQ. Anti jiu jutsu my a$$, Frank needs to work on that sh*t.

You forget that this isn't just some brutal sport where everyones out to kill each other. Its much more like a game of physical chess.-looney liam

i just saw it..I don't know what the hell Shamrock was thinking...he was loosing the ground game to Renzo, so he got DQed w/ the illegal knees to the back of the head. All Frank was saying was he was "old school" and not aware of the "new" rules..really disapointing...I'm a fan of both, but the cheap shots (illegal knees)was, IMO intentional. Before the stoppage, Frank landed a few solid punches, but Renzo was able to neutralize him on the ground. I'm still iffy on the stand-up count they have...really works against bjj guys like Renzo...he was working on a submission but Herb Dean would stand em up...

well...i wanted Gracie to win to shut up Frankie...but i would rather have a clean win than a DQ. Heard they put Renzo in a neck brace but he walked out under his own steam. how hard were the knees? did they look unintentional on the replay? could it be changed to a NC later

Herb Dean warned him twice not to knee him in the head and he did it anyways. Frank screwed himself.
