Zoro Moreira vs. Roger Huerta brutal soccer kick

source: The Underground

Soccer kicks are banned under the Unified Rules of Mixed Martial Arts. Aside from obvious safety concerns, the spectacle of a full on soccer kick to the face is simply not accpeptable for most people, at least in the West. Roger Huerta vs Zorobabel Moreira did little to change that.

The Asia-base ONE FC organization is not regulated by an Athletic Commission, and has made the decision to use a rule set that includes elements from both the Unified Rules and the rules set from the now defunct Pride, inlcuding of course Soccer kicks.

If you saw someone getting punched in the face in "any other scenario" you would think that is fucked up to. Because fighting outside the sporting context is illegal.You like stroking your "ding dong" by selectively moralizing over fighting techniques, the rest of us do it over actually watching people fight.

The real problem is that most people who post are the same people who have never had a proper workout before. Let alone soccer kicked while on your fours. If you think its so cool, why don't you have your friend give it a go.Its like those people who complained about Victor Ortiz "quitting" because he only had a broken jaw. Only a broken jaw?! OK, Terminator, I'm sure you'd just pop it back in and go back to war!

Soccer kicks and stomps are too dangerous, the neck can snap too easily.I think most people saw this disgusting old school dojo vid where a black homeless dude is killed by stomps by a wannabe tough guy who took himself too seriously like the tools that advocates stomps on forums. This gif reminded me of that.Boxing changed it's rules to minimizes death riskes. MMA can't afford to have anyone killed in the first place. Fuck off about the purity of the sport, there's nothing pure to it, it's not NHB and never will be, why the stomps but not the eyegouges? The kick to the groin/ The headbutt?Stop being so dense and go watch some Talibans vids, cause some of you are not into MMA but into seeing the most graphic violence availlable.

Again it's amazing that all the talk is about safe or not safe and nothing about the absurdity of cheering cause a guy punted a defenseless human being on all fours not moving. If you saw that in any other scenario in life you'd be like that is fucked up. Because they're wearing board shorts all of a sudden it's sick brah? Christ if it was a vid of a guy punting a dog you'd be hoping 4chan got the guy's name and hunted him down. Yes they both signed off on the rules but it's beyond mind blowing all you guys stroking your ding dongs cause you saw a dude get kicked like a field goal.

 It has happened many, many more times than just Vera. Soccer kick KOs are very rare and no more dangerous than standign head kick KOs or KOs from gnp.  We have PRIDE to back those facts up, 600 plus fights.

Yea that brutal force can possibly lead to early death, the first warning sign being a concussion
