The first few landed behind the ear (just as dangerous as back of the head IMO) the last few were the back of the head. Behind the ear is another Vitor favourite (Akiyama, Franklin) and this kinda shot was also the one which wobbled GSP in the Serra fight.

Browne / Barnett. Shoulda been a DQ.

And Travis Browne is one ugly mofo with a boring personality and a fakely humble demeanour.

and they're all perfectly legal. The back of the side of your head is the side of your head, not the back. Basically what the back of the head means is a punch to the brain stem. That's what it means.

LOL, those elbows where even farther from the back of the head then the ones agianst Gonzaga. LOL.

So you're completely giving up trying to argue any point? That's usually what happens when you realize you're wrong but are too proud to admit it....

Legal elbows have the exact same potential. Broke Vera's face in 3 places.

Really? what more would you like. We both made our arguments and I believe I'm right...you believe you're right...how do you propose solving it??

Trial by combat? Compare dick sizes? Drinking contest? We disagree, do you want to leave it at that or should we continue arguing our sides till the end of time?

There is a gif of it somewhere, it's in round one when Werdum was on the bottom in deep half.
Don't forget Dan Henderson's patented Backhead Blows

Like people watching the video of the Twin Towers falling, and saying that they think it was caused by planes crashing into them, people have the ability to pretend or even force themselves to believe something which is obviously false, because it is backed by social authority.

I still don't understand how that Gonzaga win wasn't overturned. The elbows he finished him were clearly to the back of the head.

The Barnett ones were fine.

That fight convinced me that there is no such thing as objectivity when looking at things in an MMA fight. I'm pretty sure now if someone brings a gun in an MMA fight and shoots someone dead, there will be one or two people that will say that that was fine.
