    In his defence, the karateguy had a significant height- and weight advantage (10 cm/16 kg)

    Riviere was a pretty prominent kyokushin champion and K-1 veteran, actually.

    Then why were his punches so goddamn awful? its gotta be just cos he's so fucking big, you don't have to be good if everyone else is significantly smaller.

    ..if all I have to go on is this video then as far as im concerned he is shite

    The only other MMA fight I've seen of his was against Carlos Newton. There was also a Kyokushin match against Moti Horenstein that was pretty good, but the only other video I can find of him was this:

    YouTube- Super Spin Kick KO!!!

    His punching looked fine in that fight, he won by knockout punch in the first 30 secs ffs. He looks a little awkward over-reaching for some shots but i'd attribute that to him fighting such an unorthodox guy, everyone looks sloppy fighting these guys. I have the same issue sparring MT beginners who don't move the "right" conventual way.
