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.

I think the rules around elbows needs to be addressed and made clear. All elbows thrown in a drawing motion should be either illegal or legal.

My vote is for illegal because when you draw your elbow you can really use the point of it which we all know is the part that does the damage.

GSP said it best in an interview last month. Foot stomps should be illegal. They do almost next to nothing in a fight, but can seriously **** up a fighters feet causing life long injuries. Those should have nothing to do with this sport.

RIP Jordan Corder. Watch over me from above brother.

I've never heard a fighter complain about it. Only Joe Rogan and people on MMA forums.

it would be going back, and the UFC wouldnt be able to be sanctioned in as many places if the rules were changed much, and its still not sanctioned in certain places.

fans can complain all they want, but the best thing for the UFC going forward, and trying to get even more globalized then they already are, is to just leave it alone.
It's extremely deadly as you can fracture your opponents orbital bone and take out his eye ball in the process. It's like hammering someone with a nail...the pointed edge of your elbow can do some serious damage.

I'd say upkicks should be legal. If you're getting pounded out you can't always scramble or look for a submission.

I'd like to see elbows to the face/head made illegal, soccer kicks, stomps and up kicks to downed opponents made legal.
