    Last one seemed like an obvious 12-6 to me.

    If eddies elbows were illegal, so were those.

    They look dirty to me, also people needs to STFU about the rule being illegal or not, those are the rules like it or not and your cry won't change anything.

    Those seem to be on a slight angle. I am in favor of getting rid of that rule or at least only apply it to the face of a fighter on his back.
     
  11. Shut the fuck up, dummy. People can complain when stupid rules are still stupid after all these years.

    And they do change rules occasionally.

    Fucking dunce.

    That UFC Fight night was in Oklahoma different time zone to lee's hometown of Detroit so while it may look like 12-6 it was actually in a different time zone so was legal.

    It was a 12-6 but not intentional.
    Kevin is hitting the side of Chiesa's head, you cannot 12-6 on a vertical target.

    On the last elbow Chiesa ducks his head resulting in the already thrown elbow to miss and land in a 12-6.

    I didn't watch the fight, was busy, and haven't watched a clip of it. If the fight wasn't stopped would Eddie have gone on to win, most likely?

    Last one looked like a back of the head also, so yes.
