    You are a tool.

    Obviously you have little background in anything other than MT and running you mouth.

    The OP has written a good article from his perspective.

    Again, I am not saying you cant become a sufficient striker in MMA without Muay Thai. Only that its the most logical choice because it covers all parts of stand up fighting that are allowed within the rule set of the UFC. It teaches you to use all 8 weapons, which most other striking arts dont.

    I have the utmost respect for styles like Kyokishin. But someone coming into an all out standup fight with experience from that only will be at a great disadvantage because with the no punches to the head rule of KK he hasnt been taught to use his hands like a Muay Thai fighter. Or his elbows and knees from the clinch for that matter.

    So, are you going to keep typing out of your own ass? The more you type, the less informed you sound.

    *edit*

    1. Good article.

    2. Glad to see the forum stomp on ignorant style bashing.

    3. I've never seen a karateka fight with hands chambered by their hips. AFIK that's only for solo drills.

    That's not a low chamber OR hand dropping, that's a low hook that didn't get back fast enough. Notice where his right hand is? Happens to the best of us.

    That was exactly my point. I said Liddell drops his hands because he often gets lazy. Not because of his "chambering". I then made a point that if it truely was because of some Karate style chambering he did it, then it definatly wasnt a positive thing. Its not a thought out technique by him, more like a mistake he often makes but few people have been able to capitalize on it because he had mostly been fighting wrestlers with poor standup in the UFC before Rampage arrived.

    I think Id better leave this thread before I get outnumbered even more. Im not very good at this internet thing am I...:listen:

    Right, I'd switch places with Hugh Heffner any day of the week. Like I said, you're an idiot you should stop posting now, you've driven that point home.
