    opinions do vary.

    In many people's perceptions, elbows are indeed dirty, as are soccer kicks and stomps. So you can't really state without any doubt that they aren't dirty.

    That was the point.

    If they weren't controversial--and considered dirty by many valid opinions--they'd probably be allowed everywhere, right?

    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.

    Jon Jones kick to the thigh = take down for chael.

    I bet Jon throws very little kicks in this fight, AS tryed in the first fight with chael and he took him down everytime i dont think Bones will put himself in a position like that with a fighter whos wrestling is better than most in MMA.

    And Chael has poor TDD. I'm a Sonnen fan, but this is going to be ugly... It's a terrible matchup for him.

    It's to the thigh, but Jones hasn't used tha technique on any wrestlers. I don't see him trying to kick Sonnen, he has no reason too. His hands are more than adequate enough to beat Chael down with.

    It's gonna be such a one-sided beat down, they're gonna call him Jon "Sandy Bones" Jones afterward.
