    Effect of low blows and eye pokes on the outcome of fights.

    I did a quick search and didn't find any statistical data on this.
    Do you know any? If not, we could collect fight's with those fouls and find out if they have an effect on the outcome. From the fights I have seen it seems to me that those fouls, intentional or unintentional, are an advantage for the fighter commiting them.

    I think Alex took a low blow or two in one of his recent matches, so he may have some insight here.

    I remember Matt Hughes said that getting hit with a couple of low blows during a fight can make you over-react to any incoming low kicks, and thus leave yourself open.

    Not to mention the fact that depending on the severity of the low blow, you may not recover fully for the remainder of the fight.

    I had two low blows with knees to my groin in an amatuer muay thai fight. I was hit with enough force that it broke and dented my cup. I honestly thought the groin hits really took away from my cardio and 5 mins is not enough time to get back in shape sometimes.

    Out of curiosity, can you request a new cup? If it breaks in any way, that could potentially be dangerous.

    I took a thumb to the eye in an amateur boxing match and had to fight with one eye for the remainder..and it was damaged pretty bad for weeks afterwards.
    Luckily, I won that one by TKO (the guy took 3 standing 8's) because I got freaked out and just went all-out to try and win..so I guess it kind of worked in my favor.But I am willing to bet this is an exception rather than the rule.
    Overall though, in Pro Boxing anyways, you get a full five minutes to recover from a low blow..and if you choose not to go on it goes to the scorecards, so it shouldn't really affect a fight's outcome unless you go on when you shouldn't have - or there are REPEATED low blows.

    Damn I'm assuming this was a steel cup?

    And like everyone else says, gettin hit in the groin really sucks the energy out of you. But statistically speaking ... good luck dealing with that information.

    I actually didnt realize that my cup was broken till after the fight was done. My dick was hurting so after the fight i checked to see if i was bleeding and discovered that my cup was broken.
