    It's definitely not 3 points. There are have times where guys have had to raise one foot to put a hand down to make it an illegal knee. I am pretty sure the rule is any part of your body other then your feet.

    Fighters can strike from the bottom. Joe Riggs not someone out with punches from the bottom. Elbows from the bottom can very effective like in guida's fight with Diego. It does severely inhibit your ability to effectively do damage with strikes, but not completely. There are lots of fights where the guy on bottom does more damages.
