Rogan explained why they are illegal. They're no more dangerous than regular elbows....
YOu can't base much off Rogan's oppinions dude. In Rogan's oppinion the entire world should be smoking pot everyday because it's the key to self awareness and other crazy shit like that. He can make a point at times but at the end of the day anything going on a downward movement is going to carry more momentum that the same strike horrizontally.
Take into account that with the head allready flat on the mat of the Octagon and this leaves no room for anykind of shock absorbtion.
For example if I hit you in the head with a rock while standing in a side to side motion it's not going to be nearly as devstating as if im swinging said rock DOWN onto your head when it's flat with the ground.
