Eat a Knee Mother F%#ker!

So, you are getting sick and tired of "Lay & Pray" wrestlers in the UFC. You are not alone in dreading a UFC full of champs who are really good at taking their opponent down and keeping them there with good wrestling while doing just enough soft ground and pound to keep the ref from standing the fight up. What can be done to thwart this? Ivan Trembow is about to "face palm". It is time to allow knees to the head of a grounded opponent. I know that spinal injuries are a real drag but I seriously wonder what evidence there is that spinal injuries will increase if "Pride Knees" are allowed. Is there a laundry list if ex-Pride fighters with spinal injuries?

If a fighter with a strong wrestling base suffers no consequence when he fails to take his opponent down then why stop? If that same fighter shoots in for a take down, fails, and ends up eating 3 or 4 knees to his head and face while he is on his hands and knees he might not be so careless with his next attempt, if he survives. There are a lot of examples where fights would have had a completely different end had "Pride Knees" been legal. One recent fight I think of is Sonnen vs Marquardt. At the end of the 3rd round Marquardt gets on top of Sonnen in North South and lifts his knee for a fight ending strike but may not deliver the blow.
