    a knee to the top or sides of the head (the softest spots on your head) can kill you or crack your skull open in an instant.

    they're just reducing the chance of death and severe injury. boxers can't punch to the chest because they could kill the person, not because it has, but there's a higher risk. are you gonna argue that people could get a higher rate of knocking out a person if they hit the opponent's chest to knock the wind out and then catch them with a flurry?

    you miss with a punch to the face and hit their head it's maybe a knockout at worst.

    you miss with a knee to the face you're lookin at instant death.

    Those knees were utilized in Pride for years. You were more likely to be killed by the Yokuza for not throwing a fight than you were to be killed by a knee...smh.

    Head kicks CAN result in a broken neck if you catch the person with their chin up, and broken necks can lead to death. Guess we gotta ban those too.

    But out of all of the brutal head kicks thrown, there have been minimal injuries. Same deal with the knees, upkicks, and even the headstomps. And they've been used a lot more than head kicks.

    You can also kill a person with a choke. Honestly, it doesn't take a whole helluva lot longer than it does to make a person pass out.

    Death/severe injury via knee to the dome would actually be a freak accident, and would likely be inflicted by an opponent with bad intentions or a referee that shouldn't be refereeing. And it's not like they're an unnecessary addition, like head kicks and chokes, they can be used strategically to counter another strategy.
