    "The Pugilist: Nick Diaz, Daniel Mendoza and the Sweet Science of Bruising"

    http://www.headkicklegend.com/2011/1...eet-science-of

    An excellent article comparing MMA fighter Nick Diaz's unusual boxing style with that of 19th century bare-knuckle legend Daniel Mendoza.

    In related news, a female boxer trained exclusively by English WMA instructor Terry Brown recently won her first semi-pro bout, using the classic BKB style.

    I've been saying it for years, since the Sanchez/Koscheck fight in UFC 69 - lots of old old BKB showing up in MMA.

    And the announcers kept griping about Koscheck keeping his hands "too low" and keeping his "head and chin up" and how it put him in *SO* much danger despite the obvious fact that it clearly didn't. He used the extended lead to control distance, the lower hand had plenty of time to guard the head when necessary, and he really didn't get hit in the head. The evidence that the "Classic Pugilism"-esque guard that he was using was working was plain as the nose on your face but the announcers were too entrenched in what they knew to see it.

    Peace favor your sword,

    Absolutely fantastic article. Good usage of historical data in a way that’s relevant and not at all dry. It’s easy to mock the merit of the Classical methodology, until you see a side-by-side comparison such as this.
