Anderson better watch out before he gets DQ'd again for an illegal 12-6 elbow!

It was to the body. Which is legal Noob.
12-6 elbow is illegal no matter where it is thrown. Ref probably didn't care cause Okami was already done.
They are legal, just like soccer kicks and knees to the body on the ground are legal. Please actually know the rules before commenting.
The UFC lists "striking downward using the point of the elbow" as an illegal strike. I don't see downward elbow only to the head listed, do you smart ass. That strike to any part of the body is illegal.
Ok, simple logic, no 12-6 to the body has been considered a foul, nor have I seen a fighter in the UFC been deducted a point or disqualified. To the head I have. Simple logic, broken ribs are repairable, brain damage aint. Idiot.
Herb Dean same guy reffing this fight warned Cheick Kongo for 12-6 elbows to the body against Paul Buentello. No one said that delivering them to the body was more dangerous but just as illegal.

yeah, no its definitely not illegal. many fighters throw 12-6 elbows to the head of their opponent if they are on the bottom with their opponent in their guard.

this elbow which you talking about is 9-3 not 12-6 ;)

I am referring to when the fighter on the bottom throws elbows (such as Kenny Florian has been known to do) the rule on elbows says downward elbows are illegal. the elbows i am referring to come DOWN onto the fighters head. Reverse the fighters' positions and the elbows would be illegal. Either way, the elbow Anderson threw here was not illegal.

Osteen, 12 to 6 refers to the motion of the elbow coming down literally from the ceiling to the floor i.e. with the aid of gravity. What you described is not what the UFC regards as '12 to 6'.
If only I had Chael Sonnen odd's and not normal bookie odds for this fight... I would be a milli... sorry... billionaire. Chael is a retard for thinking that Okami stood a chance.

when was the LAST time Silva lost? ONE DO THE UNEXPECTED......
Anderson Silva caught flying scissor heel hook
PICTURE THIS: Silva always expect his fighter to come charging after him and he provokes and stand around ...well the other fighter should do the same....stand there but keep the distant...provoke back and say "i have your belt" over and over....silva is probably thinking what the hell? he's playing my game.... silva is expecting a counter attack but it never come....just when he stands there, the other guy should do the unexpected...turn around and walk away BUT do the unexpected.....do a back upward kick to the neck/head (kung-fu movie?) just as silva comes charging and land his head in the kick...thus .turning his game around unexpectedly
YEA MAN! YOU SHOULD GET IN THERE AND SHOW EVERYONE HOW ITS REALLY DONE!
