    Return of the Smashing Machine

    Tonight, heavyweight Mark “The Smashing Machine" Kerr makes his return to mixed martial arts in the IFL's Superfight against Mike Whitehead, a contestant from the second season of Spike’s Ultimate Fighter. Kerr, a D-1 NCCA wrestling champion at Syracuse University, brought mayhem and brute force to MMA in the late 1990's and briefly after Y2K. His success came during one of the most violent periods in MMA when there were few rules and regulations. But Kerr is best known as the main subject of an excellent HBO documentary that came out in 2002, appropriately called “The Smashing Machine.” It showed him during a time when his life was as reckless, tortuous and forbidding outside the ring as it was inside it. While Kerr came across as a young man/gladiator with a load of problems, he was eminently likable—and you were pulling for him from the get-go. Not just fans of MMA but anyone who saw the film was left wondering, What ever happened to that guy? Is he alive? Not only is he still with us, he’s doing very well--mentally, emotionally, and physically. And the articulate, personable behemoth says he’s still got some fight left in him, too.

    He had several nicknames that changed throughout the years.
    The Smashing Machine is great documentary for anyone that hasn't seen it. Even girls like it.

    The three nicknames that come up the most often are "The Titan", "The specimen" and "The Smashing Machine."

    Anyone who wants to go down the road of a pro MMA fighter should be required to watch The Smashing Machine.

    That sucks.. do you have any more details?
    Straight punches make you go blind. More damage is done to a criminals nervous system when they are struck. Strikes that make you stronger. All this and more systema douchebaggery:

    Hey, maybe this should go in the grappling subforum, but does anybody remember Kerr's variation on the armbar? Where he would put the opponent's forearm or hand under his armpit? Basically, instead of a straight armbar, the arm is diagonal across your torso. I've found it puts a lot more pressure on the elbow much quicker, but I've been warned by a local BJJ guy that it's harder to hang on to the arm that way, which I can understand.

    My ?'s are; is there a name for this tech.? A Diagonal armbar? Did Kerr invent it, or did he get it from another art? What do the grapplers here think of it?
