Basically I saw Larkin doing his best Ali impression with the jab on Howard. I could tell howard was feeling those but all Rogan talked about was the leg kicks. I think its kindve arbitrary like takedowns.its become a cultural thing that people find aesthetically pleasing but doesnt all ways translate to the perceived damage. Why? Well the reason leg kicks are the lowest scored kick in muay thai is that it easy to check among many other subtle ways to minimize the damage. Stepping in, making it land with the foot on a harder part of the leg etc.You can usually tell how a fighter reacts during and after a leg kick does real damage. Still while devastating it isn't as effective as it was when fighters generally weren't as good at checking. Really cant say that about being hit in the face with a 4 ounce glove. Brain damage can be assumed. But the leg kicks are powerful looking so the judges seem to count them like they all ways land clean. Meanwhile a jab can be hard to see and if you've never been hit with one in tiny gloves, you dont realize how much pain and damage it causes.I doubt the judges understand this.
