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

    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.

    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?

    Elbows arent allowed by every promotion, does that make them dirty? Opinions vary

    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.
