    I thought the whole Kung FU thing was a joke. Doesn't Roy Nelson have a school and teach BJJ?

    It's not a joke, it's just not as straight forward as all of us Kung Fu guys would like to believe. Roy studied Kung Fu seriously for 3-4 years, and then more casual after that (we studied at the same school, the Lohan School of Shaolin in Vegas). He's got experience in Northern Shaolin, Praying Mantis, Tai Chi (he's a fan of Chi Gung training), and a bit of Southern Shaolin.

    But he's been doing BJJ much longer (he was doing both BJJ and Kung Fu for a while). When he lists Kung Fu as his style, it's more like saying his MMA is his "Kung Fu" (as in skill attained through hard work). He's learned a lot from Kung Fu, but the biggest lesson was to do what it takes to improve his own skills (our Sifu was/is very open to cross training in other styles).

    Also, he doesn't have his own school yet. He's looking at a couple of places, but he was focused more on TUF.

    On another note, I about had a nervous breakdown watching that fight. I flipped out when he landed that right hand at the end, and my hands wouldn't stop shaking for hours. I would have loved to see Roy just steamroll Schaub, just so I wouldn't have to freak out every time he landed a punch. But Brendan did a great job in that fight. He stopped several takedowns, plus his ground defense was solid. He was able to get up without suffering any damage, or without putting himself in any danger of submission.

    Props to both of them for that great fight. I really hope they both do very well in the UFC.

    You must have been watching a different fight. The thing where he'd grab one of Hamill's hands and then drop elbows with the same arm was super slick.

    If they landed, did you not watch the slow-mo replay?

He had better learn how to check those leg kicks too...
    Obviusly, he still has a lot of work to do.But give the guy credit, he's realisitc about his abilities and I have never seen him be anything but humble since he started doing MMA.
    I wish him well.

    Weird. Houston, a normally aggressive fighter circling & not strikung at all exept for slappy inside leg kicks. Letting Kimbo up after luckily tripping him with a leg kick. And not shooting once. It's not exactly a secret that Kimbo is a decent brawler with no skills or good instincts on the ground. I can't think of too many light-heavys who'd rather stand with him instead of taking it to the ground.

    Except that Houston has even less ground skills then Kimbo. It makes sense in that light.
