I'd rather get soccer kicked in the face than have this happen

    Too fast, where did the kick land and what did he hurt? Cool as fuck.

    They seldom ever work these days anyway, so why not ban heel hooks. That wouldn't hurt my feelings.

    I'm not arguing that strikes to knee joins should be banned though im not a fan of them, just that I haven't heard any safety related reason why soccer kicks are banned. I know they are banned cause MMA was having a hard time getting sanctioned so they banned stuff they deemed to look to brutal like soccer kicks, knees to the head on the ground and 12-6 elbows.

    It is a bit odd that soccer kicks, knees to the head on the ground and 12-6 elbows are banned IMO due to looking too brutal while allowing people to kick knees backwards though as I find that a lot more brutal looking but people weren't really doing that kick back when MMA was struggling to get regulated.

    (Sorry if i came off wrong bruv. My post was not disagreeing, but agreeing on one point then vaulting off back to topic. I got much love for ya)

    Yeah, there was definitely more of an issue with perception than actual danger. Today, I'd like to see them revisit stuff. Like I said, I think they've gotta keep regulations updated.

    As for brain injury, I've been limping around on a tear for years, and surgery does not put you back to 100% . While on the other hand, I'm pretty sure i can take 10 running-start soccer kicks from prime Shogun and still be smarter than 70% of this forum.

    Edit* Eeey, I got my red belt

    By that logic, we aught to ban arm bars too

    Difference is, you can tap before it breaks. Here if it lands right, you're fucked.

    tapping doesn’t make the other guy release the hold, the referee coming over and putting his hands on him stops the submission.

    Seems like he cracked it hard when he threw it and after he stood up and put preasure by walking/sprinting forward it snapped in half. But he took it like a champ.

    Seriously. A soccer kick to the thigh is nothing compared to that

    WTF?! What's the point of a 10 count if the ref calls it at 8?

    I've knocked unconscious with a soccer kick. You don't feel anything.

    But who knows what they shit did to my brain. I surely had a concussion, but didn't see a doctor. I was young and stupid when it happened in a street brawl between my pals and some other guys.

    Pro-tip: Don't judo throw and ground and pound someone in a brawl with multiple people. You might get soccer kicked by someone still standing.

    Ban kimuras and arm bars too. Plus getting brain damaged is usually considered worse than a joint injury.
