    Not at all. Jones shouldn't be doing that crap, I don't like it. Also Vitor didn't hit him, it was his little warning to Jones he better be ready

    Good job on the article but I disagree with points 1 and 3. Then again a lot of people do believe that 151 got cancelled because of Jones and that he fights dirty and they hat him for it. So yeah, good post.

    I don't know that it would have been a DQ that would hold up to review. If you watch the clip in slo-mo, Jones' hands reflexively come off the mat as the kick is thrown. If it had landed, he technically wouldn't have been "grounded," and it would have been a legal KO.

    But I'm pretty confident a ton of Jones fans would have freaked out about it, and called it dirty. I'm pretty confident a ton of them called it dirty that night, even if they can't admit it now.

    But that's bias for you.

    Which part?

    If you can get a hi-def vid of the fight, his hands clearly come up. It wouldn't have been a foul, technically. It probably would have been called a foul, but it would have been the wrong call.



    As for the fans thinking it was dirty, I know bones fans that freaked out about it. I'm not saying you, or anyone here would, but I personally know fans who freaked when it was thrown.

    What makes a non illegal move/strike dirty? For instance, may people feel like those knee/oblique kicks are dirty. I do not.

    Best example I can give is at one time punching a guy in the balls wasn't illegal. Its just wrong. I don't like stomping a guy in the face when he's on the ground either. To me that's dirty.


    move one's bowels to a chicken coop. Kill chickens and pick up feathers. They blow the whistle on for 10 ea on forums. Also bury the bones you find.

    I was told years ago in Kenpo/boxing that a dirty move can be legal or illegal but what makes it dirty is the relation between a potential for long term injury versus the potential for it actually contributing to a victory/finish. He also said that "cheap" shots fell into the dirty category.

    What's funny about him telling us that was he was speaking from a boxing perspective and IMMEDIATELY followed it up by saying that Kenpo not only embraces dirty/cheap moves, but it urges you to use it at the most opportune time in order to gain an advantage or at least enough space to escape injury. Clearly, he was speaking practically and not during competition.

    Yes. A good barometer of how I try to keep some degree of balance is to figure how I'd feel if my favorite fighters performed an act, and then how I'd feel if their opponent did it to them.
