it looks like 12-6 elbows to me, need the ug's opinion.

perhaps an even bigger fail by dan after the invisible back of head shots.

think of it like a clock. the elbow has to come down from where the 12 is to where the little 6 is

You can't come straight down with the point of the elbow.

Those were completely legal in my opinion.

Totally legal and there shouldn't be any debate.

I see fighters on the bottom do it all of the time.

No those are not illegal. 

But these are pretty much definition of 12-6 right here.

I thought the same thing right when the fight ended, and while I think they were close to being considered 12-6, there was enough of an arc on them for them to be legal in my opinion.

 

Just my opinion.

They look like they drop at the exact same angle except Jones is raising his elbow above his head before dropping it down, whereas Khabib is just dropping the elbows.

one is from full mount so i don't see how they are similar.

jones is bringing his elbow up to 12 on the clock we talked about, and then down to 6. 12 to 6 on the clock that we talked about. nugmersntrovysteyr is not bringing his elbow up to 12 on the clock we talked about, and then down to 6. not 12 to 6 on the clock we talked about.

ps. i don't really see why THAT angle in banned by the way but it is.

i think we need jack's opinion on it personally - i'm sure you agree :DDD
