Heh, I guess at the end of the day I have never really liked BB mag. I stopped buying them ages ago when every single cover had some Master Doobee of somewhere claiming to be all power in some traditional system from someplace some thousands of years old. I see it really aimed at the TMA market and Bill Wallace is writing to those people to reassure them they are "technically" superior so dont worry about the "new fad" is pretty much what I would have expected of the magazine from my earlier experiences.
I heard that Benny was supposed to fight Toshio Fujiwara, but Benny lost in some qualifying matches to some Thais and as a result the fight never happened.
YOU sir are MISINFORMED and WRONG.

clearly as we all know, thai people are very muscular people.
He must have outweighed benny by like 20lb of pure muscle to put him down.
Benny's record and legend is in no way fabricated and is 100% authentic.
his true factual record is 56-1-0. read em an weep.
this man is an international legend.
In the December 1998 issue of Black Belt Magazine (pages 33-34), Floyd Burk wrote: "Urquidez was so 'bad' that he could go to any country on earth, fight anybody he was paired up with according to their rules - and beat the living daylights out of them Thai boxing-style leg whips and elbows and knees strikes, made it impossible for urquidez's opponents to plan an effective stragedy against him. They tried, but not a single one could do it."

The Rick Roufus vs. Leg Kicks vid is the one I posted 2-3 above yours. Couldn't figure out how to embed it, so you have to click on the link. It's worth it though, Rick and the commentators eat a big 'ole slice of humble pie.

Funny thing is though, I read the Ron Von Clief interview, and now respect him more then any of the others. Those guys only competed in what they knew. Theres nothing wrong with that. They just didn't have all of the combat sports available to them at the time like we do now. They fought in some of the earliest kickboxing matches in America. They'd still be legends in my mind if they stayed in the game and were true martial artists, learning and not being upset about their reputations.
Thats why Chuck Norris is so cool. He had some pretty good kickboxing. But he also saw BJJ as a great martial art. He didn't get mad because it could defeat his kickboxing. He was happy to find another martial art that he coul learn and that would help him whup ass.
Just saw Roufus v Thai person. Good match, havent finished it yet, but the first round showed me that the Thai was not ready for that kind of boxing but Roufus was not ready for those kicks.
The real jet, Benny would have whooped him. Roufus just couldn't get the job done.
