    One Championship: Check This Out...

    I hope this link will post, as there's a couple things I really like about this fight.

    I know it's pretty savage, but knees to the head of a downed opponent must still be legal in One Championship fighting, and I think that's as it should be. The sport is mixed martial arts, and each combatant is responsible for "defending yourself at all times". I believe that should include knees to the head on the ground. It happens in this fight, and I thought it was pretty awesome.

    Incredible kicking power on display here. As a former TaeKwon Do guy, we see some good kicking in the UFC, Edson Barbosa, Anthony Pettis, among others, but in this fight, you can see a guy (don't even know who these guys are, when this fight took place, seems to be in the Phillipines...) actually get kicked half way across the ring, and it is actual ring. Personally, I like the cage, but this was a good fight, and the kick would have ended just about anybody it landed on.

    Also seemed like they let this fight go on when one guy was in trouble, more so than some of the fights we've seen recently, specifically here in the US, and generally in the UFC. Not arguing for less fighter safety, which should be paramount, but I think you have to let it go beyond a guy taking a few unanswered punches, to a point where it's obvious and beyond debate that he can't continue. This fight went there, and both guys came out ok.

    LOVE the knees to the head rule....soccer kicks I can do without though
    We must reject the idea that every time a law's broken, society is guilty rather than the lawbreaker. It is time to restore the American precept that each individual is accountable for his actions.

    Yeah, I'm in that camp too. Soccer kicks to the head almost always happen when a fighter is already badly hurt, but knees to the head would be a game changer IMO, it would give wrestlers much more to think about, and maybe help to stop boring fights.

    One does do some great fights, it's biggest issue is trying to get our attention. It's on at weird times for a US audience, not always great for us in the UK too......and they have so many fighters nobody knows, even if they are pretty damned great to watch. The Lee siblings are fantastic to watch fight, Christian and Angela.

    Also, I do kinda like Schiavello on commentary too...….he's maybe a bit too excitable, but I like his passion.

    I'm all for knees to the head, that's a game changer for sure, but like pointed out earlier, the soccer kicks usually come after the downed fighter has already been hurt.

    If the unified rules would look at it a lil more in depth, they might actually see it as a viable change to downed opponent striking.
