  • Let's see what he says when he gets his own knee kicked... this is a life changing damage, its criminal... if this kick is legal, then snapping arms and necks should be legal too... but it's not a street fight, it's a sport and a level of humanity and respect should be maintained. He cant win without breaking someones knee!!! he admits it so innocently when it's a very lethal and cowardly plan!

  • I dunno man... kicks knees punches to the head are one thing , an oblique kick like that is career ending .... the surgery his opponent will have to go through , months of rehab not being able to pay bills... thats fucking bullshit , fighters should be going out there for knockout or submission not to cripple or end a career... fuck you rountree hope u get the same done to you.

  • Fighters, fans, their comments are not making a lot of sense regarding Rountree's win and banning kick to the knee. When a fighter gets KOed by elbow to the head, heel or shin to the head, knee to head (masvidal), all are happy and celebrating like idiots, not worrying about injuries of the other fighter. But a kick to the knee gets too much controversies and the fighter gets judged. Which of the said scenarios is more damaging and career changing?

  • Those sideways kicks to the knee, they are not sport,they are dangerous knee spoilers. There was a time in UFC, where it was totaly legal, smashing oponent in the nuts. Those days are luckly over. UFC are finaly doing something about the eye pokes, but very reluctanly. It"s always an accident, in spite of,we are dealing with highly pro"s, doing nothinh else for years. So they know what they are doing. Rules are for a reason, and kicks in the nuts, around knee capsel,and eye pokes, not sporty moves, but disabling.

  • Dana white and the MMA board need to eliminate such an opponent-killing attack. No one wants to play a game that requires a hospital stay of 6 months to a year and maybe after recovering and replaying there is a very high risk of reoccurrence if kicked in the knee like that.

I mean, its a perfectly legal technique but as far as sportsmanship is concerned its not a great look on a guy if it gets over used. I'm a fan of Khalil, its a solid win and if its a legal technique well I guess folks need to stop being so heavy on that front leg!

    • When someone gets knocked out cold they lose parts of themselves so should all strikes to the jaw be banned ? When someone is a knee bar by the time you feel pain your ligaments are already destroyed. Should we ban joint locks too ? As long as it’s not eye gouging and strikes to the back of the head it’s okay for the most part this is martial arts

    • @Priyansh Ajania not all mma promotions have those illegal and several of the most prominent ones in history have openly allowed kicks and knees to the head if a downed opponent. None of you people complain about heel hooks or the fact that you can just teep the top of the knee for an almost identical effect (thais do it all the time and drill it all the time)
