Listen, I'm not trying to flame or anything, but don't you think that a CC kick to the head could inflict some serious injury just as easily as a stomp?
Unless I misunderstood your post, you were making a comparison between stomps and elbows, suggesting that if one is "brutal", then so must the other be. My point was that elbows aren't particularly injurious, while it's easy to imagine how stomps could be, and therefore it's not a good comparison. I was essentially agreeing with you, I think.
Sorry about that, you know how argueing on the internet is...
I guess I was just saying that many common techniques can easily cause serious injury... And I guess I was using the comparison with elbows for the brutality aspect, not as much that they are apt to cause serious injuries...
And it seems that if people aren't familiar with people using stomps/soccerkicks (not saying you aren't) they are quick to write them off as brutal or something along those lines...
Watch Baroni / Menne... That is one of the most quick brutal beatings out there... There's nothing wrong with that... It's just what MMA is... But no no no, soccer kicks are barbaric and animalistic, and makes it look like a street fight...
Well you know what, to the casual fan what did Cyborg / Manhoef look like? Or Frye / Takayama?
Did you not enjoy those fights?
Did they not remind you of street fights?
Where they not brutal?
Are we really just knit-picking?
