    In JKD Bruce lee said that shin-knee side kick with the front leg is the fastest and most direct strike that we must use frequently as a offensive or defensive technique. Why mma fighters not use it that often

    Not often enough. Bruce said it must be used like a jab

    Ask Holly Holm how well that worked against Shevchenko. Hint. There are effective ways to defend & counter it.

    Not for nothing, but Bruce Lee never fought MMA, so maybe he isn't the final authority on what works and what doesn't for the sport.

    Lead leg teep or leg kick is used all the time. I dont think you are allowed to strike the knee cap in MMA.

    Y'know your basement? Well right underneath that.
    It's more that you don't want to. If you look at what Jones does he aims just above the knee rather than the knee cap, hitting the patella dead on runs the risk of being painful to you, especially if your opponent's leg is pretty bent
