Ive been watching MMA since the beginning of UFC in 93 and i cant remember there ever being a time when someone went for a high kick and slipped and hit someone in the eye. I figured this would happen more. What do you guys think.
I think the main reason why this isn't something that occurs very often is due to the fact that if you hit with the feet, or toes as you have suggested, you aren't transferring a whole lot of power into your target. Thats why you hit with the shin over the foot. If someone were to get toes in the eyes, it would most likely be from an off target kick and would probably hurt the thrower more than the receiver (lol)
