“It should be called the illegal kick. It should be banned and it shows a lot about the fighter’s character that he would throw it. How would he like it if somebody threw it at him and stopped him working for a year? I thought it was an illegal move. I think spinning elbows should be illegal too because they land on the back of the head. But I appreciate a good fight, a good scrap, I just wonder which rule fighters will bend next.”


- Rampage Jackson via ESPN.


I think the spinning elbow should only be illegal if it actually hits the back of the head. I hate those kicks the knee is a tuff joint to repair there is no reason IMO to have a legal attack aimed at destroying it.

Pretty simple poll how do you feel?

I'm not too fond of the kick either.

I am fine with both. I think they are both good tools to have in a striking arsenal. The spinning elbow is devasting when landed, its similar to the spinning backfist, so those would need to be illegal too. Rampage wants them illegal because he cant defend either one. Rampage - If you want a sport that doesnt have kicks and elbows, make the fucking move to boxing. So sick of him!

Kicks to the knee, no. Could scew up people's knees and we don't need anymore injuries.

But, why should Rampage care if he is seemingly on his way out of MMA?

Rampage can defend against spinning elbows better than most. But I don't see the need to ban them, but I do agree with the oblique kicks. A well timed one could end someones career.
I've been to a few places that will only teach them in self defence classes and flat out refuse to let people practice them on anything other than a dummy. Never once been taught or showed them in training though they can literally fold a knee the wrong way.

I found it funny that Page is worried about a spinning elbow hitting the back of the head yet he is most famous for trying to put the back of Aronas head through the canvas!

i say ban the the kicks to the knee. what other reason is there for throwing that kick other than to injure the knee joint. we dont need any more torn ACL's in the ufc. as for the spinning elbows, let them stay. they cant be any more dangerous than a regular elbow or standing knees to the head from the plum.

Head kicks often hit the back of the head/neck as well. Should we ban them?

*****BREAKING NEWS!!!*****

ramPAGE also thinks that speaking intelligently and coherently + driving on freeways should be banned.

ramPAGE thinks that showing up to a fist fight and actually fighting should be BANNED.

rampPAGE thinks that every sentence that he garbles should end with the phrase 'know what I'm sayin'?'

ramPAGE actually thinks that King Mo is an actual King

You should get a warning for targeting a knee with a kick. I've seen a few bad knee injuries. Imo it's like small digit manipulation, very damaging in the long term.

That being said, these guys are punching each other in the face for a living.

I agree with you 100%. Ban those kicks. The spinning elbows are fine.

jaguar_paw » Posted 12/29/07 12:04:00PM

Why is a kick to the knee called an "oblique" kick?

To me, and "oblique" kick would be to the side of the stomach below the rib cage.

Just curious if this is another case of Rampage not knowing things or if this is a MMA term I have never heard before.

Im sorry, I thought the arguement was for oblique kicks (which is a kick to the midsection/body shot/liver shot) which is why I said i am fine with the kick. Now that i know its for a knee kick, i completely agree, a knee kick should be banned.

airkerma » Posted 1/6/10 12:05:00PM

I think the kick should stay, but I can't really justify my position any further than comparing them what could happen in certain submissions, which isn't exactly the same situation.

if they banned Oblique Kicks because they cause injuries they would have to remove all knee bars, ankle locks, arm bars, kimuras, and pretty much every submission there is. Might as well ban all kicks since blocking them can cause injuries, while we're at it, throw on some big ol'boxing gloves............wait a minute....thats pretty much exactly what Rampage wants.

go to boxing already!
