    That's marketing for ya. Maybe there's someone that has enough money and gives enough of a damn to produce a martial arts version of mythbusters. I'd set aside 30 minutes of my life to see someone throw a real deal chi ball on network TV. Matter of fact, I want a Ninja to punch someone in their chest as hard as he can on the show too.

    Dude screw that we just need to get the mythbusters to do a MA episode. Just get enough people to suggest it. That would be one great episode if done right. i mean come on, they already did a ninja episode.

    The fact that all the martial artists were different sizes removed any idea of science from the first show and will probably be the same for this one. That being said I still did enjoy the last one for sheer entertainment value and will watch this one expecting a laugh or two.

    Mythbusters did a semi-"ninja" episode, regarding stopping a sword with your hands, and walking on water etc...

    This show caters to the half-wits in exactly the same manner as the previous special.

    You already have a ton of kids/adults who think ninjitsu is teh deadly because they saw it on TV, and now that stupidity is coming to MMA? Tragic.

    A little half-wit on ninjitsu another half-wit on MMA, maybe we'll get a full wit and it won't be so bad. Or it'll just be twice as bad...

    "and his (Couture) blows generate double the force of a heavyweight boxer's best punch."

    I have all the respect in the world for Randy Couture as an MMA fighter but in what alternate reality does he hit harder than any even marginally skilled professional heavyweight boxer? It isn't like he's exactly been a one punch KO machine in MMA. He usually has to wear guys down a bit before he stops them. Even with 12 ounce gloves on I would bet that Samuel Peter easily hits twice as hard as Couture does with 4 ounce mma gloves.

    They didn't say they would compare the exact same strike. This is typical of their voodoo science approach. My guess is, to get the results they want, they'll compare a Couture elbow to a boxer's punch. The force exerted on a smaller surface area with the elbow will guarantee more pressure at the point of impact.

    If they're real bastards they'll compare two things that are completely incomparable like a couture slam or kick to a boxer's punch. Or perhaps Couture shooting a gun compared to a boxer's punch. ...maybe Couture pushing the button on an atomic bomb's detonation sequence to a boxer's punch. It's Fight Science baby!

    You're right, they don't specifically state that Couture punches harder but that his "blows" generate double the force. Which can be loosely interpreted to mean anything, elbows, slams, etc. It's pretty much guaranteed that they will twist and otherwise manipulate the results to get whatever result that they've already decided before hand that they want. After all didn't the first Fight Science determine that Ninja's had some kind of "death blow" or some such bullshit or am I mistaking that for another show?
