Obviously they are illegal, but a lot of times they just happen due to circumstance, and how often do we see a fight overturned or called off because of those? Seriously, how much damage could a person do with their thigh? Not to sound crude, but I would gladly let a guy with no legs below the knees thigh me in the face all day long. :
