Soccer kicks and face stomps should be legal in the Unified Ruleset of Mixed Martial Arts!
Since the UFC has acquired Pride some fighters have had success in the company like Big Nog, Shogun Rua, and Anderson Silva who was at one point the longest reigning champion in the history of the company. These fighters may have had better success had Soccer kicks and Face stomps being added to the sport. Most people who make the unified ruleset probably never had a real fight a day in their life and simply bans the moves for how brutal they look and not the damage they inflict. Top 3 reasons why they should be allowed.
- Soccer kicks and face stomps are more common in regular everyday fights.
- No one has suffered traumatic injuries while fighting in Pride or any other organizations that allowed them.
- Fighters kick anyway so why should it change because fighters are on the floor.
If you are against this rule then you should rewatch Weidman Versus Mousasi and tell me what did you think of that call. Had the rules been different that fight would’ve not been stopped like that and we would’ve had a clear cut winner. Comment and share what you think in the comment section. ;-)
