This ELBOW Stuff needs to get resolved

The 12 to 6 elbow issue combined with the new trend of elbowing like a mofo when your opponent is trying to take you down is gonna get someone killed in the octagon, seriously

Don't throw 12-6 elbows to the back of the head.

There, it's resolved.

Your post was gold until your reasoning was because "someone will get killed"

They should make the rule clear becuase I'm confused as hell on what "ceiling to floor means" since Travis Browne's shots definitely use the same gravity Jone Jone's elbows do. I'm okay with such elbows, lets just make the rule f'n clear. None of this confusing horsesh#it on "it's kinda legal, but no from this time to this time. It's gotta be tree fiddy. etc.. etc..."

to be fair, dutra got disqualified because he hit the back of the head, not because the elbows were 12-6

kang/shimizu on the other hand...

Browne's elbows in general are clearly not 12-6 or the back of the head. You can tell he is very careful where he places his arm and how he moves it. It's much more technical than the sort of spur of the moment elbows we saw tonight from fighters pressed against the cage.

I agree with you. This whole "12 to 6" nonsense doesn't make much sense at all and should be allowed, but obviously keep the ban on back of the head. I mean you're allowing people to use the same motion when they're on their back, so why not let them use that exact motion when standing (12 to 6). See Silva vs Lutter for an example of 12 to 6 elbows from the back which are legal, but if the same position was standing would be illegal. Weird, pointless rule.

Watch his fight vs Gonzaga before praising him for his technical and "very carefully placed" elbows.
