It happens at least once or twice on every MMA fight card. An inside leg kick goes awry and catches an unsuspecting opponent in his sensitive area. The action stops, the fighter goes to one knee, lets the pain subside, collects himself and tells the ref he's ready to continue. The perpetrator offers an apologetic glove touch, and we're back in business.
This list is not about one of those times. These are the lowest low blows in MMA.
Low blows can take many forms. Sure, we all love our groin-shot highlights, but low here means more than just corporeal geography. It means underhanded. Shady. Dirty. Cheap. These aren't accidents or isolated incidents. They were undertaken with bad intentions, or at least a sustained disregard for rules and decorum.
There are many varieties of lowness represented here, including illegal attacks, blows before and after the bell and more. Oh, and there are also lots of groin shots. Please enjoy.
