It would be hilariously strange for flying knees to be banned.

They should really bring back groin shots. Its because of the unified rules that guys like Keith Hackney never reached top glory in the arena.

I would cringe and be marbled in his return.

That's great. However MMA without unrestricted knees, foot stomping and soccer kicks is not the spectacle it should be.

Meh... I want to see soccer kicks foot stomps knee's to a downed opponent like in PRIDE. Either that or old skool Vale Tudo.

Snap same here. Elbows on the ground encourage fights to end quickly on a cut. Standing is fine but on the mat i have no interest.

Scur, the 2 posts in this thread have very clearly establish that you want Pride rules to return?

Yes i do. And PRIDE never allowed elbows on the mat. They encourage LnP, their advantageous to wrestlers and they also encourage fights to be stopped early on cuts.

Having more weapons to use from the top encourages LnP?
