Revisionist Highlight Video's
Someone posted in a thread that people can edit highlight videos to make themselves look awesome....
Here is a perfect example: Alex Emelianenko vs. some unkown British Guy
The person who created the video said that "even the most knowledgable MMA fan would be surprised by the outcome". I certainly was because I saw the fight uncut and it was so grossly distorted.
The clip shows this brit being hyped up and then knocking down emelianenko and leaving victorious. The guy did knock down Emelianenko, but 10 seconds later he was knocked out and lost....
Understand that when you watch a highlight video you are watching what could be a michael moore type edit job....
I like how he makes any footage of Emelianenko in black and white. They use that same technique in basically ever informercial ever. (ie. "Are you tired of endless situps that just hurt your back and neck?" *black and white footage of people doing terrible crunches*)
Everything looks good when you put the right music in the background.
