    The Deadly Eye Gouge

    Chris Detrick, a sports photographer, captured this fine example of the tiger-claw eye gouge during a December 16th BYU v Pepperdine basketball game:



    ... according to the accompanying blog entry:

    No foul was called on the play. Although Tavernari missed the basket immediately following the eye gouge, he did not seem to be injured. Later in the game, he made back-to-back three-pointers along the right baseline, helping secure BYU's lead. Tavernari finished the game with 10 points.
    Another data point for those who still believe an eye gouge is a fight ender...

    Alternatively, we could look at any of the times that eye gouges have seriously messed people up.

    Obviously poking someone in the eye's is an effective move

    Just because it is not allowed in MMA doesnt mean MMA is "ineffective on teh str33t"

    Well, as his body alignment shows, he is clearly not using t3h l3thal ninja principles as handed down by the secret grand master of the deng xiao ping province. Were he to allign his meridians, put his foot such that it effectively harnessed the chi of everyone in the building, and think of ashida kim real hard, the effectivity would have been far greater. duh.

    Wow, if that **** was intentional, that guy was a douchebag who deserve to have his balls chewed by an angry goat or something.

    The street argument is retarded. BJJ is so much overkill for the street that its ridiculous. Unless you're the idiot that picks a fight with the high school wrestling team, barring knife or gun play, the opponent shouldn't make it past double leg + ground and pound - Osiris

    ..yeah.

    There's a difference between missing a bat for a basketball and deliberately pushing your fingers into someone's eyes. You can tell by his body and wrist that the motion was downwards, rather than forwards. Pushing your fingers into someone's eye will hurt. I can't really see how that could be debated, but there we go.

    There's a difference between a "claw" and a "gouge". That appears to be the former. There's plenty of evidence that an eye gouge can do serious damage. This guy was lucky, it could have been much worse.
