Anderson Silva DQ after illegal kick clip, how is that illegal??

I was just watching some of Anderson latest fights, and this fight where he kick the opponent in the head and was DQ'd, the ref said illegal. The fight was from Rumble on the Rock, he didnt kick a downed opponent, it was a heel striker upwards from the gaurd, those are legal in the UFC, what are the rules for ROTR?Here is the video

This rule has often confused me in the past....like why wasn't it illegal when Salaverry kicked Riggs this way right before the triangle? I believe no matter if your on your back or standing, any kick to your opponents face/head is illegal when any of his knees are touching the canvas.

I'm pretty sure it's illegal if your opponent has a knee on the ground. Riggs didn't have a knee on the ground when Ivan kicked him from what I remember. He was falling into Ivans guard to land one of his famous bombs when he ate the upkick and fell right into a triangle dazed.

You have to have a knee on the ground. Watch Lindland vs Almeida to see how someone with a little gamesmanship like Lindland can use it to work guard passes and seriously frustrate his opponent.

As far as the Salaverry / Riggs fight goes, that fight was at MGM Grand in Vegas. I think in Vegas the up kicks are aloud because the NSAC allows them. I think it is in Atlantic City, probably Trump Taj Mahal where up kicks are not allowed. I dont know about ROTR.

It illegal in UFC also, no kicking downed opponent to head, its very simple rule, you must be idiot or very drunk.

Downed opponent = not standing on two feet

Not legal in UFC. Kicking someone on their knees is kicking a downed opponent. Upkicks only are legal against standing opponents. Happened in the Hallman fight in the last IFL.

okami was on his knees. on your knees = downed, kicking a downed opponent = illigal.
