I say this, I'm usually ok with fighter getting hit on the back of the head  if it because the guy who got hit in the back of the head fault he got hit in the back of the head I.e Gane vs JDS, Conor vs Dustin 1 and Francis vs Blaydes 2 are examples

But, I don't like that one Gane landed on Tai, Gane aim for the back of the head that time, That was the intent of that hammerfist, I say Conor, Gane(vs JDS) and Francis wasn't aiming for the back of the head, That why i'm ok with those one, They're a reason why you can't hit someone in the back of the head, You can paralyzes them as it something to do with the spinal cord

I believe aiming for the back of the head should be illegal, That includes grappling strikes and that hammerfist he landed on Tai, I'm ok with accidental back of the head shots

DamienHandel420 I'm sorry, but what were you actually saying in your first sentence? Because that got me so confused.
