I saw an eye gouge, ouch.
Otherwise looked okay to me, but out of his weigh class IMO.

I loved the tackle into the garbage can. Decent job. He shouldve tried to stay on his feet and gone for the knock out because the tall guy couldn't punch for **** and he was outboxing him. Also, obviously when he was on top mount raining down the g'n'p, he should've armbarred that fool, but maybe he didn't want to have to break his arm."This is why we are here. Because the Martial Arts for too long have been cloaked in an unnecessary level of secrecy bordering on mysticism, and its in these shadows that the cockroaches love to hide. -Phrost"

Overall, yeah I agree, especially considering the usual quality of "streetfight" videos, despite a couple of higher-risk, bonehead manuvers:
like opening with the jumping rear kick
the couple of spinning back kicks
the time where his head was nearly dropped onto the concrete
a really poor shoot
odd foot placement while in mount
but you could tell he was trained.

I'm interested in the narrator? WTF was he watching?
"It doesn't look so good."
Compared to what? Looked fine to me. EYE gouge FTW. Got him into good position for some more GnP.
Minus the misjudged kicks, it looked technically sound to me.
Actually, considering it wasn't a rule fight, it was actually pretty damn good.

At 0:22 it looks like he's about to go for the armbar, but the video kind of skips and it shows him standing again. I do like that eye gouge, but the video skips again and you don't see the pass to mount.
The skipping in the video makes me think they were stopped and restarted a few times.

I wonder how good anyone who's trained for a year or so would look against a guy who appears to have 0 training. Not saying the kid isn't good, but if he in fact is less than mediocre, how good will fighting a retard like this make you look?Originally Posted by Sarcastro

I thought I heard someone say "Tap out!"
Do they do that in street fights now?

I thought he was pretty good - his first shot was very smooth - much better than anything I'd pull off. His last shot was pretty poor though. The spinning kicks weren't great.
There were a couple of times where I was all like KNEE KNEE KNEEEE!!!!!
And one time when I was like RNC! RNC!!!!
