    @Toco Additional choices to make it a bit less lopsided maybe.

    Knees to a downed opponent.

    12-6 elbows takes second place for me.

    I am not opposed to soccer kicks, but I think I've lost my appetite for stomps.

    for me still knees to the head, just makes it so much more dynamic. more organic, if that makes sense too. but I would like every single one of them, if I could

    knees to the head, but soccer kick is probably the most plastic one, it's just so cool to see (and brutal)

    ruling out a certain degree elbow seems like the dumbest rule for me as a non-mma fan. never understood that rule.

    I don't think there would be much outrage at all if the UFC added all 3 of 12-6 elbows, knees on the ground, AND upkicks.

    I thought knees to a downed opponent were legal (as long as they were to the body, not the head)?

    Upkicks to a "downed opponent", i mean let people fight decently off their back atleast man, might aid a bit with the lay and pray problem.

    But all of the above would be nice if we could add.

    12-6 elbow is the worst rule. It makes things the most awkward of all the ones listed

    12-6 & upkicks are just practical, reasonable rule addings, but they don't add as much as ground knees which change grappling a lot, affect prep, and should be there cuz they make the ground game more exciting to watch. Stomps are a bad idea in a cage. Can get stuck against the fence and brutalized for a long layoff.

    Knees 100%, soccer kicks would be #2, and upkicks #3. Don't care about the rest.

    HEADBUTTS ARE BIGGEST GAME CHANGER.

    the combo of a great power double/headbutts was never solved- simply banned
