    Do you think romero's oblique kicks are the best in the UFC ? He fucked up both rockhold and whittaker legs with them. I feel like his oblique kick is the best weapon in his striking game.

    It doesn't matter. Oblique kicks should be banned

    Why do they call it an oblique kick?

    No...

    The best obliques are Jon Jones.

    Even though I hate the guy. I’m not blind. That’s a JW specialty.

    Jones' kicking game is one of the most dynamic in the sport. He has shown, repeatedly, that he can halt the forward movement of a fighter and control them using kicks.

    We can't forget Barboza, though. The only man in the UFC with 2 TKOs due to leg kicks.

    Jones maybe uses it more frequently, but not nearly as powerful.

    I'm not saying Jones kicks harder, I'm telling you his kick game has been able to nutreulize many an opponent. He can control guys using kicks in a way nobody else can. For example, DC wants to come forward here and strike and Jones is able to halt his forward movement and control him. He's been able to do that to everyone. Remember what he did to Rampage with it?

    Yeah I was actually agreeing with you. Jones kicks are amazing. I just wanted to mention Barboza because he has two stoppages due to leg kicks.

    I believe you are either not human, or have no feet. Because your representation of human feet is quite inaccurate.

    I agree that Jones is the best. He's so good at it people can't help but notice the effectiveness of these kicks and want to copy them.
