I am glad that stomps and soccer kicks are illegal.
I disagree with the 12-6 elbows and the upkicks to a "downed" opponent though. 12-6 elbows are no more vicious then other strikes we see on a regular basis(like the legal elbow by Jones today). Upkicks are one of the few defenses against an opponent that is postured up, what are you supposed to do just let them punch you in the face? If you are on top you are in the controlling position, there is no reason for you to leave an oppening for your opponent to kick you in the face.
