Why do knockouts/knockdowns like the Cruikshank and Jds/cain 1 not count as illegal?
JDS/Cain I was a shot to the temple.
And generally if you turn around or duck and take a shot to the head, it's clearly your fault.
Well, neither of those were in the no-hit zone on the back of the head.
To answer your question, I don't think they're allowed standing, or on the ground. There is like a small "t" on the back of the head that you can't strike.
It should be pretty close to impossible to hit the back of somebody's head standing unless it's completely other guy's fault, except maybe if they're clinching against the fence. In a striking exchange, you certainly can't aim for the back of somebody's head.
This thread shouldn't have gone further than this.
It's kind of impossible to not accidentally hit a guy in the back of the head standing at one point.
Also, just bleed who cares.
