I'll agree, but what about 10-4? or 11-5? those are just as legal from the top as 9-3 but according to the Dr above, they are not less damaging than 12-6.
You know what man, you're totally right. IMO if a licensed doctor says that 12-6 elbows are no more damaging than any other elbow from the top, then the ufc should amend the rule. Either make 12-6 elbows legal (obvious choice) or go right ahead and outlaw every elbow from mount, which would be stupid.
I will say one thing though even if the rule was changed, I still think the DQ should stand because at the time of the ruling those elbows were illegal.
