Re: Can we stop all this 'Elite K1 striker' BS now?
Actually no. I think it's just that JDS is just THAT good, and alot of people hold this "mystique" around K-1, thinking any Top K-1 striker has the advantage today in MMA. It just isn't true in MMA anymore. There was a time, before the game evolved, that the best strikers (most of them) had a background in kickboxing (K-1). But now everyone is going straight into MMA, strikers and grapplers. So having a K-1 background, even an elite one, means that you are a great striker. But it does not necessarily mean you are better than someone who doesn't have one.
