The Unified Rules used to allow all elbow strikes except those hitting downwards with the point of the elbow.
Recent amendments and clarifications to the unified rules now allow all elbow strikes (except those to illegal striking areas of the body, for example, the groin)
That amendment to elbows in a downward motion.. was after the Anderson/Lutter fight.. which I still say was a "cheat".. illeagle move"
