Let's see what he says when he gets his own knee kicked... this is a life changing damage, its criminal... if this kick is legal, then snapping arms and necks should be legal too... but it's not a street fight, it's a sport and a level of humanity and respect should be maintained. He cant win without breaking someones knee!!! he admits it so innocently when it's a very lethal and cowardly plan!

Mann I've always liked Khalil since his soccer kick finish in the tuf house he is a beast the only thing is he wins and lose win and lose if he was to be consistent I really feel like he could become a contender for the title I hope he learned from the past not be afraid and conquer his fears and hope he starts being consistent with his wins

I thought they banned this kick way back in 1984. During the All Valley Karate tournament when Bobby got disqualified after almost breaking Daniel Larusso's leg I was sure we would never see anything like this again. Cobra Kai strikes again 🐍

I dunno man... kicks knees punches to the head are one thing , an oblique kick like that is career ending .... the surgery his opponent will have to go through , months of rehab not being able to pay bills... thats fucking bullshit , fighters should be going out there for knockout or submission not to cripple or end a career... fuck you rountree hope u get the same done to you.

Fighters, fans, their comments are not making a lot of sense regarding Rountree's win and banning kick to the knee. When a fighter gets KOed by elbow to the head, heel or shin to the head, knee to head (masvidal), all are happy and celebrating like idiots, not worrying about injuries of the other fighter. But a kick to the knee gets too much controversies and the fighter gets judged. Which of the said scenarios is more damaging and career changing?

Those sideways kicks to the knee, they are not sport,they are dangerous knee spoilers. There was a time in UFC, where it was totaly legal, smashing oponent in the nuts. Those days are luckly over. UFC are finaly doing something about the eye pokes, but very reluctanly. It"s always an accident, in spite of,we are dealing with highly pro"s, doing nothinh else for years. So they know what they are doing. Rules are for a reason, and kicks in the nuts, around knee capsel,and eye pokes, not sporty moves, but disabling.

Dana white and the MMA board need to eliminate such an opponent-killing attack. No one wants to play a game that requires a hospital stay of 6 months to a year and maybe after recovering and replaying there is a very high risk of reoccurrence if kicked in the knee like that.

Well, its a deadly technique for a street fight, but I wouldn't exactly want to make a career off of blowing out everyone's knees. I mean, its a perfectly legal technique but as far as sportsmanship is concerned its not a great look on a guy if it gets over used. I'm a fan of Khalil, its a solid win and if its a legal technique well I guess folks need to stop being so heavy on that front leg!

Taking strikes out of MMA will bring the sport backwards, and gives the fighters an excuse not to get better. If you can flying knee, wheel kick, and dive through the air Hendo style almost causing decapitation...then I don't see a problem with this kick. Learn to defend

Side kick to the knee should be banned from now on. Imagine if more fighters start throwing this sh*t we'll have ACL injuries at every UFC event. Also ACL injuries are really bad you can obviously recover but there's 80-85% chance that you're leg won't be the same.

When someone gets knocked out cold they lose parts of themselves so should all strikes to the jaw be banned ? When someone is a knee bar by the time you feel pain your ligaments are already destroyed. Should we ban joint locks too ? As long as it’s not eye gouging and strikes to the back of the head it’s okay for the most part this is martial arts

@Priyansh Ajania not all mma promotions have those illegal and several of the most prominent ones in history have openly allowed kicks and knees to the head if a downed opponent. None of you people complain about heel hooks or the fact that you can just teep the top of the knee for an almost identical effect (thais do it all the time and drill it all the time)

Not a fan of strikes to the knee but I’m a big Roundtree fan and I’m just glad he’s getting his career back on track. Before the finish, he looked like a completely renewed fighter and was going to put the guy away either way. Perfectly legal strike but I’m thinking it shouldn’t be. We’re going to have a lot of short careers if that strike takes off.
