no wonder machida couldn't walk properly in the first fight GOD DAMN!
thanks god i'm not that punching bag!!
I thanked God that you are not that punching back. Until now I haven't had a reply or response. If I do get a reply you will be the first to know.
Thank God for the safety of WES22!!!!
Dude, Cecil Peoples says leg kicks don't count.
I think that Rua should kick him in the leg and see what he says afterward. Not to change his scoring or anything, I've just wanted someone to break Cecil People's legs for years.
cecil peoples is a faggit
what do you reckon he could do at 185 tho? do ya think he could make it?
Holy Doodle. I wonder how fast Bones is gonna be shooting in rounds 4 and 5 if it goes that far.
Its a sad world when you get 13 sharps starting with holy doodle...... Ned flanders would be pleased
S****, Jones's legs are gonna snap like toothpicks
Cain was also featured in a show like this and afterwards he became the champion. Dejavu? or not?
So was James Toney lol
with an exemption hahahaha
Jon Fitch was on "Mythbusters" guess their not a champion building program.
The power in those kicks are unbelievable, 2749lbs of force. That's incredible. The highest ever recorded.
Rua will chop Jones down to size. Jonny won't be able to withstand too many of those thunderous shots. Shogun will viciously attack the legs and body until the opening arises for a right hand.
One is all it takes, from Mauricio.
I'm not saying it will be Jones' night, but Shogun will not be able to throw every kick without risk of being taken down.
I wonder how much a prime cro cop or ernesto hoost leg kick would measure to? Shogun's a beast tho! i got him by ko 3
yeah that would be great to know. it would probally be around the same or more because his legs were like tree trunks
Well I agree that his leg kicks will be his most important weapon, if he can avoid the takedowns and land a few hard leg kicks the fight will quickly favor him more and more.
DAM! Jones got an 8" reach advantage on Rua! thats ALOT he should use that...i think Jones should do take downs and Jabs like GSP did with Kosh and dont let Rua close the distance, if he does then take down, Rua should try to be unpredictable, surprise Jones with take down attempts to close the distance and do what he does, either way its going to be a wonderful fight, Jones vs Rua wayy better than Rashad vs Rua...going for Rua, but if Jones wins i cant be mad the guy has skills
that reach is half my genitalia..
To bad that bag doesn't move like Jones will be. He's not gonna hit with that same type of pressure on a moving Target. He's hitting like that on heavy bag people calm down. Seriously its totally different while in live action although, still incredibly impressive. Go ahead and weak me even though I speak the truth.
I agree, the punch power recorded of Cain was very high but his performance against Kongo made him seem like he was not much a better puncher than my girlfriend. AS probably doesn't have Shoguns power but he can hit that little itty bitty spot where it hurts far more often and so he can often drop people that have never been dropped with less power than others would need.
To be fair to Cain, I have heard your girlfriend can hit pretty hard.
:) / Odesa
I get KO'd anytime she wants.
It says most powerful strike they have recorded but I don't remember anyone else doing a kick test for power on the show but him. Cain had the hardest punch but they haven't had guys like Carwin, Kongo, Overeem, Liddell on the show and as far as can remember they only tested punches before this from MMA fighters.
Brandon Vera was on the show demonstrating the difference between a Muay thai Kick and a Karate style kick.
3RD EYE the kick would do alot more damage if the opponent was coming onto the strike now you know that is the truth
Understandable. But RUA is always the one moving forward applying pressure. He doesn't draw opponents in.
Appying presure till they reach the cage if jones goes left he'll walk onto a kick you know what i mean!!!
love how he throws that right...pure muay thai pain!
WOW Awesome Rua should have no trouble putting Jones Away, is jon gonna have his bones broken ,
jon jones will be shoguns punching bag
i think he will use his kicks to counter jones..thats the best idea for taking the legs of jones...10 kicks of that kind of force is nasty man...
they should do overeem's knees next
they should measure thiago alves' kicks!!
only cro cop could beat that... maybe...
Absolutely love the slow mo of the kick. Amazing technique that's been perfected over the years!
Cro-Cop might have more power than that but he is a heavyweight lets not forget.
Anyway, this fight is going to be amazing. Jones does deserve a shot at the title but I really think most people are seriously underestimating Shogun.
Probably because most of Shoguns fighting was done in Pride & the majority of fans are all UFC fans & probably never seen much Pride!
Greatest loss to MMA was Pride. I have every event & watch them over & over. Still saddens me that i'll never see another Pride event again :(
I like Shogun, I just feel his only real impressive victory lately was against Machida and the rest have been iffy. I respect both these fighters but I am giving the nod to Jones due to shoguns lack of recent fights. If Shogun had just fought 3-6 months ago I might give the nod to him. I don't care who wins this fight though as it really is interesting to see where each stands and how they will perform.
Very impressive kick - of course you could not kick light that in a fight, it would be suicide unless the opponent was dazed or looked in another direction. The reason that it is so powerful is that he throws his whole bodywheight into it, notice how his supporting leg is way behind him when he connects. In a fight you need to be a bit more steady, but this dispalys excellent technique which translates to the way he would kick in a fight. I am sure Jones as worked hard at avoiding those kicks.
light = like
Shogun 2round TKO/leg kicks.
If I got a few of those leg kicks to my body, I think I'd be considering "alternative MMA" careers or as a personal trainer. OUCH!
