In any other sport when an infraction of the rules happens the person is penalized. If a hockey player slams some guy into the boards he gets a roughing, boarding, charging etc called on him. It sucks for his whole team but he's got to deal with his actions. He doesn't get pulled aside and get a pep talk from the ref.
In mma there's warnings, which I think is bullshit. If you don't know or can't follow the rules of the sport you compete in you deserve to be penalized. No warnings imo, would make all the rules more stern.
With all that said it is a stupid rule and I don't know why they just can't change it. Go through all the legal Bs and paperwork but let's get the ball rolling on some changes instead of bitching about it and dong nothing.
I say both knees down and beyond should be illegal. Have the one knee and three point stance all legal. Atleast make the three point stance legal, that way fighters would have to drop to their knees to avoid strikes.
