    These really low leg kicks to the calf that people are using now more than ever. I remember Benson was the first to use it that I can remember. It just sucks how fast it can ruin a potentially great fight. 1 or 2 of them and we miss out on what a fight would look like if the fighter had both legs. Melendez vs Stephens, Lawler vs RDA, Cannonier was throwing them tonight, Lamas was going for it. I know there are others but Idk, what happened to good ole fashion Thiago Alves shit.

    That's just part of the sport man, we can't just ban some move because it makes the fight a bit suck (for you anyway, I enjoyed Lawler RDA)

    Blame opponents for not adapting to it then.

    Yep...I hate punches too. When Francis knocked out old m8 Overeem the fight was over and it ruined a good fight.

    What?
    We already have moves banned because are boring, the hell are you talking about?

    In A LOT of sports there are rules preventing boring stuff.

    I hate the punches to the face, sometimes fighters can’t make the full 3-5 rounds because of them

    I agree with the bolded quote, but just banning leg kicks because it hurts their legs is just nonsense. Body punches and kicks hurts fighters stamina too, and make their performance diminish, do you want that to be banned too?

    I want passive rounds to be scored less than active ones though. may be 10-8 should be the normal score, and 10-9 if there's not much going on

    If you fake low, you can throw high.
    Are you saying you hate high kicks too?

    Why don't you watch boxing if you hate kicks so much?

    I don't want to ban calves kicks but that argument is just wrong.

    Low kicks are vicious, i'm suprised more people don't use them, i used to train muay thai and our coach just used to drill leg kicks constantly,

    Even checking them hurts pretty bad, especially after they start to accumulate. my legs where black and blue constantly, but its one of the best ways to end a fight.

    Ive ended street fights before they have even got going properly, by just hitting them with a hard low kick.. it takes the fight out of people pretty quickly and i'm primarily a boxer. Lol.

    it's a clean finish in a street fight. You win but still give them enough dignity so they wont retaliate with weapons or calling the cops.
