In each case, the goal is to intentionally cause damage to the other fighter. Damaging someone's vision/stamina with cuts is on par with damaging his legs with legkicks. It's all part of strategy in a fight.
It's my opinion, you don't have to agree with it. I don't like the unified rules anyway, and I think that soccer kicks and stomps are better than elbows.

My main issue is scar tissue that can re-open and hamper a fighter in future bouts. Leg kicks don't do that.
