I love soccer kicks....

If it were up to me soccer kicks and knees would be legal but stomping would still be against the rules.

Stomps are just to dangerous for any professional sport IMO.

Jesus H.... soccer kicks are brutal by nature, but that is probably the most savage soccer kick I have ever seen, regardless of fighter or organization.



aldo has some ridiculous ones early in his career. guys go flying across the ring from them.

but yeah, im in agreement with the thread. Early Stoppage.



I forgot about that! I seen that dudes old school highlight reel, his soccer kick KOs reminded me of Yamamoto's HL reel, just in savageness.

Congrats..on the most ridiculous statement I've seen all year. "Yep kicking somebody square in the side of the head hard enough to break his kneck? Cool with me, just make sure ya don't step on the fool"

Soccer kicks like that, and the fans that love em so much, are what separates the masochistic wack job fans from the real fans of the sport. Bet ya love Kimbo too huh?

I love soccer kicks too when someone is trying to stay grounded to avoid shots, does that mean I just haven't been a fan as long as you have?

i prefer stomps, soccer kicks, plus upkicks and knees to grounded opponents. It would effectively stop LnP entirely.

But mostly i love it because it's savage and im not young enough to lie to myself anymore.

Nice to see some MMA not geared to favor American wrestling.

My take on it is.

If you know you can be soccer kicked don't put yourself in a position to be.


These guys know the rules

This must be the 2nd worst statement all year. The Japanese love them some soccer kicks and they are the last group of people i would call masochistic wack job fans.

So I really took some time deciding whether or not the words that you produced above deserve a response.

Naturally, my first choice was no, they do not. Your post was unnecessarily rude and also sort of devoid of any meaningful substance.

If you're going to disagree with someone, at least give a little bit of supporting rationale.

Then I decided, "hey, this guy is new. Everyone deserves a second chance."

So....

I am going to respond to you now with the hope that your subsequent reply will be better than the drivel I have quoted here.

The REASON that I am ok with soccer kicks but do not like stomps is that stomps are a LOT more dangerous. The amount of force you can generate with a soccer kick is not meaningfully different than the amount of force you can generate with your average high kick. Also, in both cases (soccer kick and regular head kick) the head is free to move.

There are a couple of things that make stomps different. Stomps can first of all generate a lot more force. You have gravity on your side, you can put all your weight into it, and you are engaging more muscle groups at once. More importantly, stomps usually happen when a fighter is lying on his back. A fighter who is lying on his back has a much worse chance of evading the strike. EVEN WORSE a fighter on his back has no range of movement to absorb the force of the stomp. His head gets sandwiched between the the attackers foot and the mat below. Because he can't move, the energy of the strike doesn't dissipate as much and his brain is going to take a lot more trauma.

If it were up to me, they would change the rule from "No leg strikes to a fighter who has three points of contact" to "No leg strikes to a fighter with his back on the mat."

Also, FYI, I like the idea of legalizing soccer kicks and and knees to fighters on their knees because it gives people another tool to use against wrestling. Its not that I like gratuitous violence.

They should create a sport where the only legal techniques are the ones that are illegal in the unified rules. Whole fights of eye gouging, fish hooking, and knees to the head of a downed opponent ending in small-joint subs.

Having been both soccer kicked and stomped, I'll take the kicks all day. Stomps are much more dangerous. And I think you should reel those claws back in kitten we're all entitled to our opinions.
