    Hell yeah! Hell no!

    Could you clarify the rules for me please...

    Stomping is not allowed but I see these vicious heel strikes from time to time on grounded opponents, typically while the opponent is on their back trying to set up for a upward kick.

    So I am a bit confused, whats a stomp and whats not?

    edit: This is UFC I am talking about..

    axe kicks to the body are allowed as far as I know, but not actual stomps. AFAIK foot stomps were only legal in Pride.

    Here are the UFC rules http://www.ufc.com/index.cfm?fa=LearnUFC.Rules. It looks like axe kicks to the body are perfectly fine.

    UFC 1 did not specify what kind of foot strikes were or weren't allowed. To the best of my knowledge in that event, only gouging the eyes or biting were advised against, but not even really against the rules.

    Fish-hooking was not allowed in the first UFCs - I'm almost certain of that.

    allowing axe kicks and not stomping is a weird distinction to me

    They would only get fined $1000 dollars after the comp. So a good tactic would of been eye gouging everyone and winning the 50grand, then paying your fines. In fact I think someone did try some eye gouging and never got invited back again, he got injured in the fight he won as well.

    Jon Hess eye-gouged Andy Anderson in UFC 5. Seemed unnecessary; Hess was much larger than Anderson and was already smacking the **** out of him.

    Hess punched like a retard, so him breaking his own arm in that bout was not surprising. His prize money was given to Anderson and he was never invited back into the UFC again. Doesn't matter much; I doubt he could've won to many fights with his slapping and eye-gouging prowess, even if he was 6 foot 7. In his only other MMA fight, he got his ass smashed by Vitor Belfort in an entirely no-rules bout, so there you go.

    a solid axe kick is a much hard attack to land than just stomping.

    Nope. The rule was introduced after Tank Abbot gleefully fish-hooked Oleg Taktarov for most of their fight after realising the obvious counter of biting his fingers was illegal. Still got choked out in the end, though.

    Also, though you may not realise it, your source is probably an episode of Friends. I won't tell the cool kids.

    In UFC 1 nut shots were out as well, though they were OK in UFC 2.
