    yes, i do realise your recycle, but misspelled 'touché', so as not to bow too deeply :)

    yes you are right about the money being important.

    Ohhhh, now I get it. I read your post with the word "touchy" and was wondering what gives. Touchè changes everything.
    Cheers.

    Leave the technique be. I love Wonderboy but his compalint is coming after a guy figured out his bait and range game. He fought long opponent who figured out he could keep Thompson at bay with the kicks to the knee and was injured him in the process. Fighters need to decide if playing the bait game from outside is worth risking their knee getting fucked up. If they're good at it then it's a non issue. If they keep getting kicked in the knee they'll need to adjust gameplan, not ask for rules to be put in place to favour their style.

    This complaint would be like Koscheck asking to ban the jab after GSP busted his face up.

    Ya I hear ya...I don't like that either

    but I just see arguing over possible new rules, when current rules are not enforced or are so subjective

    Eyepokes and knees to a guy playing the grounded game are not enforced or called properly

    When current rules are enforced regularly then we can think of more rules if we want


    I just think a guy will throw a kick to a knee and get a warning....Big fucking deal...damage will be done already


    I just read thread and people are arguing all types of wacky shit LOL...cracks me up

    pretty much how I see it

    wonderboy sidekick to the body is usually so effective...nobody complained about that technique...we gotta save the ribs and guts yo

    These are fights and more rules make for more controversy...sport is about fights and seeing what works

    we protect vital organs with rules not joints...vital organs being Eyes/Brain/Penis and Testicles

    We want our fighters to be able to reproduce, to make the next generation of fighters, and for that they need their eyesight to locate women and their loins to commit the deed. Who gives a fuck about a knee joint. Answered.

    Rampage says Bones fucked up his knees permanently. Till this day he says its a dirty tactic.

    I'm kinda on the fence with it. Its a legit tactic that isn't lethal at all so hard to argue for banning it

    Paul Harris received a stiff suspension the one time he actually ignored the referee instruction. Everything after that is complete horse shit.

    I like them. I think at some point some one might figure out a defense that will negate them. It's part of the sport.

    I'd also like to see kicks to a downed opponent as well as knees while on the ground. I think that leg locks would be a different story if you could kick your opponent while grounded.

    Taking away some of the "dangerous" techniques is like saying MMA needs a safe space.

    Most of the techniques banned for being "dirty" are also ineffective in an actual fight. Groin strikes and small joint manipulations are good examples of this.

    SMH at a karate guy wanting to ban certain sidekicks.

    We need fewer rules, not more.

    Lulz at a guy named Karate chop trashing a karate guy. Maybe we should just decide fights by breaking concrete blocks.

    Rampage hasn't stopped whining since he left Pride, it's kind of hard to take anything he says seriously.

    Tim Sylvia says arm bars should be banned.
    Big Nog doesn't like kimuras.
    Paul Herrera thinks the crucifix should not be part of MMA.
    Wah, wah, wah.

    Edit: ^^sarcasm^^
    Those guys didn't whine when they got hurt.

    The hallmarks of every good argument:
    • Call the people you disagree with a "dipshit".
    • Insist that people re-explain their arguments (nut shots) or come up with a new one because you don't like it.
    Sir, it was a pleasure debating you...

    I am starting an "All-Biting" league. The only technique allowed is biting, but u have to let go after one second. I know, I know. All the purists are going to be up in arms saying, "If u don't want me to rip large chunks of your flesh off, then make me stop!" I just think it makes the sport more exciting and dynamic. Who wants to watch a guy sink his teeth into someone's love handles and not let go for 15 mins?

    What is the defense? I have been thinking about it a bit since I saw your post.

    Open flat stance like Bas Rutten is all I can think of but that takes away a bunch of techniques....that is all I got so far LOL

    Maybe shogun's light on front foot muy thai MMA stance/style(have to be really athletic, and sucks for wrestling/TD defense)



    lets hypothesize on the defense...makes more sense than making a new rule

    Imo it's all about positioning and style. Not every move needs a specific technique to counter beyond not being in a position for it to be used. Think of the few guys who had success against Semmy Schelt in kickboxing. He used that front kick on everyone who chose to stand there but if you could use footwork to get inside you could get some shots in.
