    They should be utilized more often. I don't know about you but I'd tap to strikes the instant my throat was struck!

    No, they are not allowed, but sometimes punches end up landing there anyways.

    "Throat strikes of any kind, including, without limitation, grabbing the trachea."

    If they were allowed it would change a lot of fights when they hit the ground

    If a fighter held another fighters head up and legit punched him in the adams apple no that would not be legal. Though if its unintentional it seems to be ok as I have seen them land to the neck often
