What Is The Most Brutal Technique In MMA?

Granted the entire sport is about hurting the other man in the cage with you, but what is the single most devastating technique in MMA. The technique that whenever you think "hey maybe I could do this" it reminds you that you can't.

I don't mean specific incidents, I mean just pure techniques.

For me it has to be knees to the body on the ground.

Tito v Evans II, Jones v Shogun and Serra v GSP all come to mind.

Man elbows from full mount always make me cringe... I just picture someone dropping a rock on my face hard when I see that shit

...In MMA? That would include Pride too. Soccer kick or stomp kicks to the head. Wanderlei had some nasty ones back in those days. The ones he dropped on Yuki Kondo made ya cringe! For today's rules, I'd say dropping elbows on somebody while in their guard...

To me puches or elbow to the face, even from mount, aren't all that bad, only because if you're going into Mma you are planning to be hit in the face everyone gets hit. Not saying I would be fine with elbows from the mount haha. The one that gets me is when someone gets gift.wrapped or scorpion locked(where you pull the guys hand behind his head and hold it around his face) and the top guy just starts raining elbows, its just so brutal, there is nothing you can do.

If done correctly Heel hook by far. Take alook at Ken shamrock vs Leon Dejin (I think that is how you spell his name) and you will see what I mean.

Elbows from mount, or even guard. I would hate to have been Vera after the bones fight, that just seemed the worst kind of pain. Not to mention it could blind you and cripple you for life.

Even the old Ortiz fights vs Shamrock or Kondo, or Gonzaga vs CroCop, some of the GSP fights ... the elbows look REALLY painful. Punches I can take, but those things can be nasty when a guy has full swing body weight plus gravity behind them.

For me it's a properly applied heel hook. Makes me whince in pain just watching it everytime.


Thanks to Leakler for the sig

Knees to the head from a Thai Clinch can be a bitch as well. Just watch Franklin-Anderson.

Any kind of choke, as it's only a matter of seconds to leave permanent brain damage if it's not stopped in time.

Strikingwise I'd say mounted 12-6 elbows to the face as they easily can lead to permanent eye damage. And Soccer kicks to the head of a grounded opponent (Not allowed according the unified MMA rules)

Unified MMA rules allowed techniques: straight kick to the knee (which is one of the most complicated joints to heal), mounted elbows to the head. Knee bar.
