Why stop on a hatrick, go the full hog and get a Muay Thai bout under your belt.

Look man, I haven't seen you fight so I can't say how good you are in the "technical" aspect of MMA, honestly, big ups to you if you can do all those things. But your previous post indicates your lack of understanding of the personality aspect of being an MMA fighter. All the greats whether it be Spider, Fedor or Aoki have added a little something extra to their fight personnas and fighting styles that makes people interested beyond of what just happens in the ring.

U put aoki name next to spider and fedor .. Relax with aoki mate

People r interested in winners it's a fact ..

Jones must be doing something right he is the youngest champ ever and has people like myself way down in Australia constantly applauding his in cage skills

Yeah man had 2 full muay Thai rules bouts and 2 mod Thai bouts no knees to head .. I boxed mostly then jumped to kickboxing in my 20s .
Definately a different kettle of fish coping knees and elbows and damn leg kicks .


I'm 27 now and switched to mma . Striking against mma fellas who have next to no boxing or kickboxing experience is hilarious

Yeah mate it's pretty easy but in saying that Ozzie mma is at the early stages so a lot of the guys jumping into mma have crude skillset at best.

I'm sure if I were to go to many gyms in USA or brazil
It would be a different story..
