They banned that submission from NHB/MMA competition after this happened. There was no rule against it before hand.

who would ever do that?

its dirty as hell.

if i won like that i would shame myself.

i though more of Kerr than that, i don;t like him as much at the moment.

You gotta remember, Kerr made a name for himself in NHB fighting in Brazil Vale Tudo. There are no rules in that kind of competition.

I'm not saying I agree with him winning the fight that way, but he did what he needed to do. I don't shame on this more than I shame on kicking someone in the balls to win a fight.

what organizations?

Frederico Lapenda still has a no rules show in Brazil called WVC (World Vale Tudo Championships). Fighters such as Francisco Bueno, Andrey Semenov, Amar Suloev and Daryl Gohlar have participated in it recently.

what about weight classes?

here IN Scandinnavia (Finland) we have Finn Fight who allows pretty much, head butts, elbows (either way you want to do it) and so on...

In Mexicali, I think Vale Tudo is still very much alive, I have heard that it is anything goes.
Tanner, you mean they actually intended to kick them in the balls?? OUCH, bet the guy walked like he had a watermelon between his legs for a week.............. :oops:

Chris haseman beat Elvis Sinosic with a chin to the eye also...damn ugly move, but if it was in the game...

Better than the old **** to the eye.........

I was tempted to ask Chris wether that would be legal at the WSST.

Chin to the eye is cheap, if you ask me. Ruas tried it against Otsuka in Pride 3. Or was it Pride 4? Haseman just about won the whole tournament with that move in the Australian Ultimate Fighting show.

It is ugly...but I guess if it is legal, is it any worse than Keith hackney smashing Joe Sons nuts into smithereens??
