Icon10 Foot stomps are legal - Are hand stomps?

Before I begin I'd like to say that I think it'd be in bad taste to stomp someones hand.

However - with more and more people placing a hand on the mat to avoid being kneed/kicked. . . It seems that stomping on said hand could be a pretty effective way of stopping that crap. It would also likely break their hand. . giving them a disadvantage in the fight.

I've never seen anyone try this, and was wondering if it is legal. I could see someone like Jon Jones doing it along with his queer little knee kicks.

No idea,but you should get dubs for the last comment.

It would be pretty gruesome though,especially if the fingers are bend on the ground.

I've been saying this forever. I have no idea why nobody has tried it.

You can't stomp on a downed opponent, only kick him.

If his hand + feet are on the ground you would have to kick his hand NOT stomp

I'm pretty sure it would still be counted as kicking a grounded opponent.

Edit: After thinking about it I actually have no idea...

Why should I get dubs? I wasn't trying to insult Jon because I neither like or dislike him. . . I just don't like those kicks. They're basically an attempt to inflict a potentially career ending injury.

maybe that will count as small joint manipulation, cuz if u hit the padding maybe it wouldnt hurt that much but if u "stomp" the fingers then that could be a foul, so idk.

You can kick a grounded opponent, just not their head.

Can't stomp them though
