Zoro Moreira vs. Roger Huerta brutal soccer kick

Sunday, June 24, 2012

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.
