What point? That you are a lot more likely to be KOed by smaller gloves? MMA guys don't have weak chins in general. They can take a plenty good pounding. BUT it's a lot easier to set up a KO shot when your opponent has to worry about low kicks, takedowns, knees, elbows, etc... etc... In MMA you can't just shell up and absorb the punches the way you can in boxing.
I mean good lord, Hendo took like 40 knees straight to the face in one of his fights and still won it as I recall.

Actually, wait, no, I just confused rage for pity. I rage bill. I rage bill hard.
Superfoot is single handedly responsible for sport TKD.

It's funny. Maybe I'm just being curmudgeony, but reading stuff like this makes me even like Bill less as a fighter. Looking at his old fights, he throws so many pointfighting-style kicks, all quadricep and no hip. I realize that he can only kick off of the left leg, but the man could at least try throwing some switch kicks or fighting southpaw and getting his hip into it. But no, he just goes into the ring, and throws his little footslaps. He even does the hopping on one leg thing.
I really wish we could take Bill Wallace in his prime, and put him in a San Da fight and see how he would do when leg catches and low kicks are added to the game.

I don't even think he got the WCL thing right. First of all, of course he likes it; he complains about ground work and the WCL is a kickboxing org, so that's just pandering to his interests. Secondly, I believe it's two 3-minute rounds, just with a long break inbetween. Also, most people I have chatted with who watch the WCL would prefer longer, not shorter, rounds. Is Superfoot really that out of touch?
No, the only foot I heard on this weeks WCL fight was Peter 'Sugarfoot' Cunningham as one of the commentators.
