TS is completely right, but I think the grounded opponent rule is one of the dumbest in MMA. How is a knee strike to the nose any different if the receiver of the knee is on their feet vs on their feet with their fingers on the canvas? Obviously the Blanco/Corassani knee is not the same situation, but the point is that having one's hand or knee on the mat doesn't affect the power of an opponent's knee and it's not a real defense, it's an exploitation of a rule that made little sense to begin with.
