    Pederneiras says Florian’s elbows on Nunes “should be reanalyzed”
    Coach of Diego Nunes and head-coach of Nova Uniao, Andre Pederneiras assigned his student’s loss to Kenny Florian, in UFC 131, to the blood loss during the combat. On a chat with TATAME, Andre affirmed that the cuts reduced the athlete’s resistance, and then he was defeated on a unanimous decision of the judges, and then criticized the elbows Florian fit on him.

    “Diego started ok, he won the first round and got a knockdown. After that, I guess the cuts on head and the great blood loss were undermining his resistance, because he was doing great on the training and he was ready to fight three rounds”, said the coach, commenting on the elbows hit by the American athlete.

    “Those elbows, the way I see it, for where they hit him, should be reanalyzed... I’m not taking Kenny Florian’s credits for the win, not at all, but I took some pictures of Diego’s head, and I want to send it to UFC, asking them if those spots are legal. I don’t want them to change the result of the fight, because Florian was better and earned it, but I want to know if it’s legal so that I can tell my students to do it. Sometimes the rules change and we lose a fight for a silly detail”, said Andre, who complimented the Brazilian fighter, but commented on his mistakes.

    What isn't from the back of the ears and back is a no no, but many fights have been decided from a blow back their whether elbow or punch. I don't want to complain about it as the result probely would be worse

    he isnt talking about elbows to the back of the head he is just talking about elbows in general basically. elbows with the intention to cut like florian usually does.

    I obviously dont know exactly how safe it is, But I wish punches and elbows all over the head were Legal.

    It sounds to me like he was talking about elbows to the back of the head. The title is misleading, trying to make it sound like the coach is whining. Reading the article it sounds like he wasn't sure if they were legal or not and wanted clarification.

    I took some pictures of Diego’s head, and I want to send it to UFC, asking them if those spots are legal.
    I noticed during the fight that the cuts looked like they were in borderline illegal spots. Elbow strikes from the bottom are still kind of a gray area, lots of guys throw 12-6 elbows off their back, even though in the rules it says 12-6 elbows are illegal.

    He has to be talkign about the elbow that opened a cut on the back of Nunes' head. It was obviously illegal but I don't think Florian meant to do it. He throws a lot of elbows in his fights and he needs to be more careful about where he lands them.

    I don’t want them to change the result of the fight, because Florian was better and earned it, but I want to know if it’s legal so that I can tell my students to do it.
    LOL Pederneiras knows the elbow to the back of Nunes' head was illegal he's just beating around the bush. I don't know why he doesn't just say he knows.

    ...unless you're simultaneously wishing for stronger skulls/spinal cords to be fused directly into them, you might as well wish for fighters to die in the ring/cage.

    I don't give Kenny the pass anymore. He's made his bones for years with elbows, he should know what he's doing.


    Personally, I've always thought throwing elbows with intent to cut is the biggest punkass move allowed by the [punkassed] unified rules. I'd take soccer kicks and stomps over that any day.

    he's being diplomatic.
