Dude, Iím a wrestler. Iím the best wrestler in MMA. Wrestling IS, was and always has been the most dominate form of mix martial art on the planet. Thatís all there is to it. We all know it, some people want to fight it, some people want doubt it but wresters rule the MMA world. -
I guess I'm different. See, I view the fighters as people, and care about their safety. Yes, this is fighting and people get hurt. The point of this game is not to injure people, but to beat them.
I've said my piece.
I don't like the oblique kick. For me, it's about intent: the kick isn't easier to land, it isn't about dazing your opponent or something specifically tied to the time period of the fight. It's about damaging the knee.
Just feels like there's real intent to end a career, not just win a fight. In that sense, I liken it to an eye poke. You could absolutely win a real fight through eye pokes, but it's just not in the spirit of combat sports.
In the end, the only prize a fighter keeps is you. I only ask that you continue supporting all athletes. Keep supporting them, because in the end your applause is the only thing that remains. The rest is only an illusion. - Wanderlei to fans
I have no personal issue with oblique kicks to the thigh, but I guess that's more of a push kick then what we're talking about here.. but from the knee down, not so much.
Having said that, you can jack someone's knee up just as fast with a solid leg kick to the side of the knee if the foot is planted as you can with one of those.
Admittedly, its hard to take this seriously though, coming from Rampage. He's getting pretty stale with his whining.
I dont think they're dirty and dont link them in the same category as an eye pokes, biting, or groin strikes. Yet, I put them in the same category as foot stomps.
