Log in to Reply juniordoslightsout December 10, 2011 d you are obviously a wrestler when a person shoots on you you have to be able to defend some how or else we end up watching finch and GSP rule the world. thats like saying you can’t knee a guy if he shoots on you or if a guy turns his back to you you can’t punch him in the back of the head. if you expose your self while shooting its your own damn vault.

Log in to Reply feynmanshomeboy December 10, 2011 Elbow strikes of that type are fairly common. They seem to be right on the verge of two illegal moves: the ‘downward’ elbow and the blow to the back of the head. Hecht was able to generate tremendous power in just a few inches of diagonal movement right to the ear. Wrestlers need to adapt by not leaving their heads so vulnerable. The safety of the fighters is paramount, but how many restrictions do strikers face compared to restrictions on wrestlers?

Especially the second elbow, it hit right on the temple and caused rich to fold. Log in to Reply kaobeto December 10, 2011 if this is legal…bring the knees to the head of grounded opponent and soccer kicks back, Vale-tudo style Log in to Reply Iconoclast December 10, 2011 I guess now that I see that it’s in Canada, I guess it’s up to whatever body sanctions fights in Canada as to how they interpret “the back of the head”. Log in to Reply CycloneX December 10, 2011 What happened to the ref?? Thats behind the head with downward strikes.I never seen it anywhere in competition..TUF or the UFC. Sleeping Ref. Log in to Reply PitfighterZ December 10, 2011 Those were actually right behind the ear. It probably affected Attonito’s inner ear and that’s why he folded. That’s a “sweet spot” to hit as it will always mess your opponent’s balance, but it can really cause total shut down if you hit it hard enough. I don’t see anything wrong with it, but I also like vale-tudo rules… Log in to Reply Sweetlander December 11, 2011 @juniordoslightsout I didn’t know Finch fought GSP, I just remember him from the American Pie movies…….
