    ...Then they need to get rid of elbow strikes to downed opponents.

    All it does is make the sport look more vicious and bloody than it already is to the casual fan.

    agreed. people should pay for failed takedown attempts in the form of a soccer kick to the grill. It was so fucking rare a soccer kick or stomp ended a fight anyways, and very rarely in brutal ko.

    Soccer kicks and elbows dont make the sport look more brutal than it is, letting people who fight like a zombie makes it look worse than it is.

    Gimme Pride rules.

    Im not that big a fan of elbows, they're a necessary part of GNP but i hate the cutting aspect of them; they should just ban them for faggots with sharp ass elbows like Florian, or make everyone wear elbows pads lol.

    Now that i'm thinking about it, making fighters wear some thin elbow pads wouldn't even be that bad of an idea imo.

    A few months back when I started watching it I was disgusted.

    Now I can't get enough of it

    Elbows or no elbows

    In Mississippi the 12 to 6 elbow is now legal as of 5 months ago.

    We have got a very good athletic commission when it comes to MMA and BJJ. The commissioner is a fighter and runs a BJJ/Judo school.

    if anything they should ADD knees to the head on ground, not stomps or soccer kicks.

    They should also add biting and fishooks and eye gouges, MMA has lost its street fighting credibility...
