the new rules hurt a lot of fighters and i havent heard many people happy about it. the exact rules are; the fighters can clinch but once one knee is thrown the fighters are seperated. so basically it hurts all the tall fighers and the fighters skilled on their feet. schilt is hurt the most because he relies on the knee strike more then anyone but i really dont know why k-1 made this rule except maybe the japanese fighter wanted it.
