Yeah there is actually a scientific reason for this that iv read before. A Triathlete can usually breath while running but if you are wrestling or in an MMA fight your breathing gets disrupted pretty often and you dont truly get your breathing rhythm back until you are in the guard or standing and separated. Shorter bursts with less air intake require a different sort of Cardio. They have a term for this but im unfamiliar with it. Anyway its part of the reason people put their hands over peoples mouth to disrupt their breathing. And obviously it could mentally make them go in a panic (But unlikely if you ask me.)

The difference is that endurance sports like triathlon are good for your cardio base and aerobic endurance, in particular lung capacities and how much oxygen your blood can transport, but wrestling training has more influence on how well your muscles make use of that oxygen in your blood and how fast there is an overproduction of lactic acids. While triathlon is almost completely aerobic, fighting is both aerobic and anaerobic.

12 O-clock to 6 O-clock elbows, has they were originally and time and time again described, are not only being about a 90 degree angle but being brought down from the high 12 o-clock position, as in an elbow or at least fist raised high, like above the head, and brought straight down to the 6 O-clock position. They are described as ceiling to the floor elbows, implying their high originating position.

Looking at the two gif animations,, (edit that, I could of swore the OP had originally posted a gif of the elbow sequence, I'm assuming what I'm saying here was pointed out and it was switched with an image after the fact) (and edit again, the OP confirms he originally posted a gif about 6 or 7 posts down, but now, it is the .png we see today...)in the first two posts it's very clear to see the difference between short, what I would call 6 O-clock to 6 O-clock, 90 degree elbows and the brought down from high, true 12 O-clock to 6 O-clock elbows Jones landed on Hamill.

Now the part I don't know if it is or is not true is that they made the rule as a response to professional martial arts stone/brick/block breakers using the move to break large quantities of solid materials and the implications of using such moves on fighters in MMA matches.

I don't consider there to be a argument on this, imo there is no legitimacy to the complaints levied towards that one elbow.

In fact, I'm trying to find a this discussion somewhere, anywhere else on the web. Mmaforum.com is really the only place on the web I've seen this conversation take place, even onshitdog I haven't seen a thread about this. Fact that this thread is second only to a site called IllegalElbow.com that has a preview article about UFC 159 on a google search of illegal+elbow+sonnen+forum is enough that I'd shut this fradulent conversation down to the garbage section for the rep of this site.
Nope, I only posted one gif. I don't know why you're making shit up. Oh wait. After looking at your other posts, it looks like you have trouble reading. You should work on that some time.

Also, you probably shouldn't post in a thread if you hate it so much. Otherwise you're just keeping the "fraudulent" conversation going. I imagine this is all going over your head though, since you can't read.

Will make predictions for credits. Please, I'm so broke.

Are you really that offended that he doesn't agree with you? Plenty of people don't think that was an illegal elbow, myself included.

Not at all. If I was offended by people not agreeing with me, wouldn't I be going after majority of the people in this thread?

He implied I removed something from my post because someone pointed out I was wrong. He then somehow confirmed that through one of my posts, even though I never even mentioned it.
