I remember when Anderson first started throwing it and I thought he's gonna be tearing ligaments and ruining careers, but I've seen it land pretty hard from a number of guys, and I don't recall it coming close to ending a fight.

Any big K1 guy's see this strike end a fight where it may be more commonly thrown?

"Yeah, well, you know, that's just, like, your opinion, man."

It's illegal in Muy Thai. Direct Attacks to the Knee are illegal and unsporting.

It's not the same as a knee bar where you can tap out. This is a strike that happens instantly.

EDIT: This should NOT be legal.
I couldn't agree more with this

Nope, he doesn't land that move hard, in fact, he trows it just to scare guys, because it seems notorious, at least to me, that he paces himself when using that technique.
I'm thinking you will have a hard time finding a gif that proves me wrong in this one.

I don't mind the technique. Don't fight if you don't want to get hurt? Or don't lock your knees and learn a little footwork? Page of all people should be quite about fighting dirty. As Lyotolegion pointed out, the dude hit Wand several times when he was out cold while the ref was pushing him off just to make his frail ego feel better. He should be thankful Wanderlei didn't stomp his head open the two times they fought in Pride. Rampage Jackson will forever be in my top ten but this butt-hurt at everything attitude he has is older than his title aspirations...

I cringe every time I see Jones use this technique.

It's painful to watch.

Their are allot of fighters in the the UFC who use this technique besides Jones. I know Silva, Vera, Condit, Diaz, are just a few I've seen throw these kicks and I agree they are cheap shots.

I think I feel this way because I have personally have had knee surgery twice, so I know what it's like to blow out your knee.

I've seen others use it but Jones uses it all the time to keep people at range. Like another poster said, the moment a top earner gets sidelined by an injury like that, it will be banned.

Why wait, ban it now.

Jon Jones, he's the dirtiest fighter out there, but manages to stay with in the rules.

Deliberately intimidates fighters from moving in by holding his fingers out - Check
Kicks aimed at hyper-extension - Check
Elbows thrown to rip a persons skin apart - Check

Whatever you think of Rampage nowadays, he is absolutely right. It's dangerous as shit and the number one thing that fighters may lose their livelyhood if it connects bad enough. It's not exciting, flashy or spectacular, just dirty and cringeworthy. Ban ban ban.
