Knees and kicks require a lot of risk, though when they hit they do more damage. Elbows and forearms do alot of damage and are relatively easy to use whether in a clinch, on the ground or standing.

There is only one weapon that KOs people when they're in your guard and thats the elbows.
the versatility of elbows is amazing...when u understand the mechanics it becomes more than an offensive tool...u can intercept the incoming attack while using ur own attack...elbows are my fav weapon...amazing for defence, offence and anything...but u gots to be carefull not to expose urself after a failed attack....keep the weight on ur back leg and cover the hole immediately....

elbows can KO ppl too....knees are more powerfull...

Knees and elbows carry hard bones therefore they are the most vicious strikes. End of story.

I'd have to go with knees. They are much more dense than the elbow. Plus, take into consideration how much force you can bring with the knee in the clinch - pulling the head down while bringing that knee up....WOW. Force.

I mean c'mon...anyone recall the NASTY cut Vitor gave Eastman at UFC 43? My point exactly. Just my two cents.

very well put.

Elbows are the most powerful, and have the most versitility.

but i could understand if some of you said knees.
