All these rules prevent it from becoming like a real fight. Real fights often have more dire consequences, but we have a neutered version of a fight at the moment. It highly favors wrestlers often because the strikers can't strike out of the position.
Allowing soccer kicks would increase the number of finishes in MMA to increase but there has to be defined rules that the person receiving is unable to defend himself. The UFC would end up having a circumstance like Arlovski/Silva 4 almost immediately. Soccer kicks are too difficult to implement due to their possible brutality and the difficulty in creating a legal paradigm of how they are allowed in a fight.
