I agree with the threadstarter's picks completely. I'm not going into it again but there's a difference between a KenFlo elbow and an Evan Tanner elbow. KenFlo's elbows are legal and effective, but cheap as hell nonetheless. Leben's foot stomps aren't too bad, but it still is as cheap as pinching or biting. And Sylvia shitting his pants is cheap because it makes your opponent hesitant to touch you.

There is no such thing as a cheap move. You do what you have to do to win as long as its in the rules. And who ever said elbows are cheap, ever hear of muay thai. Its a huge part of mma.

the elbow... the only reason any fighter in the UFC uses it, is to cut open their opponent to get the fight stopped (not to WIN the fight)... then they cheer like they actually beat the other guy...

and don't try to tell me otherwise... when the fighter's corner is shouting; "elbows... elbows... cut him open..." that means something...

whiskey, racism, money, grease, twinkie's, guns.....yep lol thats about it

im all about the elbows, i like to put a little more of the forearm in it like evan tanner. but they teach us in muay thai to use specifically the tip, which is what cuts. i like the foot stomp, i like to knee to the legs in the clinch. some may view me as dirty, i see it as being tactical. i like to beat everything i can. i want guys to never want to fight me again. its all about emposing your will on your opponent. although i have to admit, when a fighter is getting his ass kicked and he then wins on a cut it does piss me off. i dont aim to cut when i throw and elbow, its just a good solid strike when you are in close.

I love elbows.


One strong eblow to the side of the temple can KO someone as well.

Example: Evan Tanner!

What is it that is going to be on your mind when you're on your death bed? Will it be the tedious years of 9 to 5, or the memory of some great acheivement. Maybe a moment you stood in glory to the applause of millions.
