The difference in that is, the guy throwing the knee is on his feet. A guy on his back can't generate as much power.

I do agree that putting your hand down shouldn't classify as being "down", but I wouldn't put the two rules in the same basket.

No clue why they don't allow that considering the guy on top is going to be generating a lot more force leaping over the legs to punch you or drop the elbow.

Why not get rid of knees, elbows and finishing holds altogether? If pure sport is the goal, Boxing and Wrestling are exciting and established international sports with complete rulesets. A few minor tweaks to the rules and scoring systems would create a sport similar to MMA but without those elements that so distress the rabitfolk, and with a couple of potential fan bases already built in.

I don't see any need to change the rules. They are fine as they are.

finishing hold???? No one in MMA uses the Stone Cold Stunner. Are you talking about submissions?

I have no idea what a ‘Stone Cold Stunner’ is, but in the context of this post I assume it would be included in ‘other’, as in not western boxing and not collegiate, greco-roman or freestyle wrestling.

I think the term ‘submissions’ is misleading because the fact that they can make someone ‘submit’ is just an artifact of competition, the actual purpose of these techniques is to break joints or render someone unconscious, thereby finishing the fight.

So does that mean that head kicks and power punches are also finishing moves since the intention behind someone throwing them is to finish the fight.
