UFC Fighters on Rountree Knee Kick

UFC Vegas 36, which aired on September 4th. There were a lot of great moments during this weekend's UFC Vegas 36 event, with Paddy "The Baddy" Pimblett's wild start to "Meatball" Molly McCann winning a fight of the night. Tom Espanel made himself a potential contender with a first round TKO win. Overall, even after Darren Till lost in the main event, you have to consider this card a great success for UFC and the UK. If you haven't read it, you can read it on our website at WWW.Fight TV / Blog. Today we will talk about the same battle of UFC 36 Vegas after which the UFC fighters got into a wave of controversy and they demanded a new UFC call.

Yes, we are talking about Khalil Rountree and Modestas . It was a bad day for Lithuania's Modestas Bukauskas, who lost their third UFC fight in a row. Bukauskas suffered a horrific broken nose at the hands of Khalil Rountree and then suffered an even more devastating knee injury when Rowntry hit him with a knee strike the most controversial move in the game by UFC fighters.

Divided over whether the dreaded Khalil knee kick should be illegal. What is a slanted kick? This is mainly when you kick someone in the knee or expect to blow the surrounding ligaments. And on Saturday afternoon at UFC Apex, Rountree landed a great slant that did just that: Ringside therapist told UFC broadcasters that he thought Bukauscas had lost his ACL, MCL, and tore the PCL.

Following Rountees victory, there was a debate on the Internet among the fans as to whether the slanted kick should be illegal. In our opinion, we are more interested in hearing what other UFC rivals think.

"If it lands, it's definitely going to blow your knee," Alan Jobin said on the ESPN Post show. "So I don't think we need any more."

"Dana White, please protect me, change this rule," Bilal Muhammad added. You have to protect your stars here.

In the UFC roster watching the fight, opinions differed - although they certainly tend to ban slanted kicks
