its a fight, if you dont like the technique, learn to avoid or counter it, its not like he is poking him in the eye or something.
Actually, he and Anderson have both thrown kicks directly to the front of the knee. Obviously, not every time, but it's happened.
If they weren't controversial--and considered dirty by many valid opinions--they'd probably be allowed everywhere, right?
All manner of men came to work for the News: everything from wild young Turks who wanted to rip the world in half and start all over again -- to tired, beer-bellied old hacks who wanted nothing more than to live out their days in peace before a bunch of lunatics ripped the world in half.
