Could that be considered a 12-6 elbow?

    Beautiful strike, probably one of the best elbow KO's of all time now, but taking into consideration Yair was basically inverted?

    I'm leaning towards no, technically, because regardless of orientation the elbow didn't come from "straight up" to down. His hand was closer to the side of his own head before he delivered it.

    But I won't be surprised if they ban this strike either. Again think about their positioning, hell imagine both guys are on the ground if you have to; it's a downward elbow strike towards the bottom of your opponent's exposed face/neck/chin. I'm glad to see the crumpled zombie be able to get back up again, honestly.

    EDIT: "...under the Unified Rules of Mixed Martial Arts, defined as "striking downwards using the point of the elbow" for all the clock warriors out there. Funny shit, for real! Anyways, the strike was away from the Earth sure, but if you're upside down, and your opponent is above you ... you can picture this, I promise.

    No. Gravity is the reason for the 12-6 elbows being illegal, Yair was going opposite gravity.

    12-to-6 equals going from the top to the bottom in a straight line.

    Lmfao any elbow can be considered 12-6 then if you're allowed to orient the clock any fucking way you want.

    I know most people believe the Rogan story for 12-6 being illegal but I honestly agree with it because throwing a 12-6 elbow from mount or half guard the elbow would fit perfectly into the eyesocket and I do believe it could cause horrific and unnecessary injurys be it broken orbitals or worse resulting in 1000 Bispings with permanently fucked up eyes in MMA.

    IMO the benifit of allowing it is out weighed by the potential risk.
