I remember how i once made a thread saying that the move should be illegal. People were comparing it to a knee bar which is completely nonsense. When you are in a submission you have a chance to tap and prevent any damage. When someone kicks your knee backwards you dont have a chance to tap.

But ofcourse everyone ganged up on me and disagreed.

Im surprised their not here now....

Everyone here that is stating there is nothing really wrong with the move; have never gone through the 8 hour full reconstruction surgery and 9 month rehab I did. I have never full recovered; and would wish such an injury on no one.

laughing at how watered down the rules are in north american mma, forget knees and kicks on the ground and I heard some places are strict on piledrivers like fedor vs randleman and khalibovs recent ones.

No one cared when Anderson did it. It was his thing for a little while there.

It's kind of a douche bag thing to do but hey it's legal and it helps Jones gain a bigger advantage with his reach. Do that kick forces his opponents to stand more upright limiting the distance they can move quickly, where as if they were crouched legs in an athletic stance it would be much easier to counter and close distance. It's really a very intelligent a strategy.

This would kind of be like making low ankle picks illegal because you can buckle the guys knee and far worse than with that kick. I understand the intention is not the same but how could you enforce the rule? Anything that strikes the knee illegal but they allow striking with the knee. So what attacking the front of the knee? Well then you run into what was he trying to do? Make front kicks illegal? It's just too hard to enforce.

All though now that I think about it, I thought you were not allowed to strike joints? Isn't the knee a joint?

I kinda see both sides. If it's legal, then use it. But I really don't think it should be legal. I sure hope I'm not watching when a career ending hyperextension happens to one of my favorite fighters. With the increase in the number of fight events, it is just a matter of time before we'll see it I would think.
