Even as whiny as Rampage is, I agree with him on this. I always thought this should be illegal since joint manipulation is already illegal. They can use a similar type of definition as the "12-6 elbow" strike to define an illegal front kick to the knee.

I can't say I would care if they were banned or not. But I definitely have an issue with it being called "John Jones's" Technique.

It's not exactly new. I mean Bruce Lee was doing it in Enter the Dragon.

I have had that kick thrown on me hundreds of times, it is only damaging if you have all your weight planted on that foot, if you check the kick then no damage is done.

Shutup Rampage, learn to defend and stop whinging.

Learn to defend the damn kick, it's not that hard.

Seriously, are we going to ban Pat Barry's low kicks while we're at it? Cause he damn near broke Evensen's leg back in UFC 92.

And Jerome Le Banner shouldn't be allowed to leg kick people either.

Page is just being a whiny little girl because he knows he can't compete with the upper or middle echelon of the UFC anymore. I like Page, but all he ever does anymore is cry about his vagina being sore. It's so stupid to hear anybody bitch about dangerous techniques should be illegal in MMA. It's a combat sport! It's retarded to hear people bitching about a kick that is used sparingly and not give a damn about techniques that are used by every single fighter in every single fight. Which is every single ******* technique used offensively.

In any striking combat sport, more careers have been ended by punches than anything else. Let's ban punches. Then every fighter would focus on elbows, ban those because they're dangerous. Then every fighter will uses kicks and knees and those can hurt somebody, those get banned. Then we'd have a submission grappling and clinch Wrestling match. Wait a minute, a fighter can be seriously injured if they land wrong from a Greco Roman or Judo throw! Looks like we have to ban everything that could possibly injure a person. It's ******* retarded that someone who makes the decision to fight MMA for a living is whining about a technique that can cause injury. Page, and everybody, that cries about Bones's kicks being too dangerous to be legal need to go watch College Wrestling and shut the **** up already.

i got to agree with the guy here. the stop kick (as it is called in JKD) is a very effective yet cutthroat technique is career threatening and one that should not be allowed

Sideways, stopping damage from the kick is as simple as lifting your leg and checking it.

If Rampage doesn't like checking leg kicks then that's his own problem. It's a legitimate technique and if you don't like what it feels like then block the damn thing!

I have had that kick thrown on me hundreds of times and i've never hyperextended my knee or done any real damage, Rampage's lack of defense is the problem here.

I'm really excited for his retirement, I can't believe how I could like a guy so much only a couple of years ago to now looking forward to watching him get beaten down by Glover.

The kick is pretty quick and sneaky thus pretty hard to check (Though Rampage does just suck at checking leg kicks). Sure a person can prevent it but i have a problem with what could happen if he doesnt.... To me it just isnt worth having that kind of kick be allowed in a professional sport based on the damage its likely to do. Not "Possible" of doing but likely...

So far only a few people are using it but when it becomes the norm im fairly certain we will see some bad injuries. I quiet frankly dont want that for the athletes.

But i also cant say i feel that strongly about it. Just if i had to pick a side of the fence id go with the one where they arnt allowed.
