Finish Friday 33 – Illegal Blows

Another week and soon another weekend.I don’t really have a reason for this week’s theme but it just seemed appropriate for me. Maybe its all the funny things going on in politics in South Africa of late and the talk of ‘performance enhancing’ substances. Both interesting discussions, but not for this week’s Finish Friday.

First off we see an illigal head kick to a downed opponent in a Muaythai fight between Superbon & Aikmongkon. While the Muaythai rules can be a bit tricky about this situation as you can knee your opponent in the momentum of dropping them. You definitely can’t head kick them while they are down or getting up. I do miss Pride FC…

Next up we have a No Gi Jiu Jitsu battle where one of athletes pulls and electric chair submission and is then disqualified as the ref didn’t know what it was and thought it was something else. I’m sure this parallel’s to something in SA politics. Right now I’m juist trying to drop the word politics as many times into a post as possible without any substance to see if that stirs up any heated debates…
