Andy Hug was the man R.I.P! Nobody that I have seen has mastered the Axe kick the way Andy did .Some of the best leg dexterity ever, only HW KB that even comes close was a prime Mirko, and even he couldn't do some of the stuff andy did.

A lot of great stuff on Andy here.

When Andy Hug died, Peter aerts broke down and was crying for hours. He and Andy were great friends despite battling each other several times, with each guy getting the best of the other twice. Hugs rivalry with Mike Bernardo(R.I.P) was also great.

For a while, i was biased against Hug because i felt Hoost was robbed against him but his heart was so tremendous and his fighting spirit which finally got him revenge against Bernardo was so overwhelming you just had to admire him.

A friend of mine had sparred with him in boxing only sparring and was getting the better of him. He said after the round was over, he went to touch gloves and Hug kneed him in the nuts:

Another time was in Vegas after the K-1, they went to a club and Andy got so hammered he was trying to dance and hit on my coach's GF.

His kicking was awesome, iin particular his axe kick. But he had the odd misfire. Have a look here at 7 minutes 44 into the vid >>>

Good thing it's just a glance.

Or else there would've been 2 KO's that night.
