So knee bars arnt even a close comparison.
And most people find Palhares to be a retard anyway.
Quiet frankly im not even sure what you are trying to argue??? That kicking the knee straight in is no more dangerous then a punch to the head or a knee bar?? You must realize thats wrong obviously...
It is amusing how you mitigate the likelihood of damage with leg submissions by assuming logical preventative measures on the part of the opposing fighter but don't apply that same reasoning to these kicks.
Yes, one of the things I am asserting is the fact that the damage that can be done by blows to the head is more life altering and potentially life ending.
As far as kneebars and heelhooks are concerned I am saying two things.
1. The damage potential and likelihood is greater in a vacuum with the submissions.
2. Attempting to harm your opponents legs is an accepted and integral part of MMA thus the strike in question can't be unsportsmanlike on the grounds that it damages the legs.
