is it considered a 12-6 elbow from the bottom

Florian consistently throws the same elbow Jon Jones was DQ'ed for, just off his back, is it still a 12-6 elbow from your gaurd? if so why do they allow it, he cuts alot of people with it

Its a 6-12 elbow obviously.

i'm pretty sure the rule is completely retarded and it is an "absolute" 12-6, as in always from ceiling to floor regardless of the relative positioning of the fighters.
