Don't know if anyone else caught this from yesterday's press conference announcing the new World Victory Road promotion and the new sanctioning body for Japanese MMA:
Mr. Fukuda answered a number of questions regarding the rules, saying that the federation would like to have few limitations, but at the same time would get rid of dangerous moves such as soccer kicks, knee bars and attacking the spine.
I don't mind losing the soccer kicks (as long as they keep elbows on the ground) but banning knee bars???!?!!?!?
C'mon Fightlinker, your excellent story missed some key trees in the forest.
