We could ask Renzo Gracie about leg kicks. Poor guy could hardly stand up after all those leg kicks from Matt.

Ouch!

I was only saying that to stir the pot a little bit, but it's also true. Both Forrest and Carlos won the belt by using leg-kicks. I'm not saying leg kicks can't do a lot of damage or win a fight, I just don't personally enjoy watching a guy throw mostly leg kicks for five rounds. Cecil People's is typically the "goto-guy" when people complain about judges, and I don't agree with him saying "leg-kicks don't win fights" because clearly they do. However, I don't think leg-kicks should have as much of an impact on how a round is scored as punches or kicks to the body or head. That has always been my opinion since long before Condit/Diaz or even Page/Forrest.
