Cross armed defence...rarely used anymore

Paul 'Hoko' Hodkinson had a bad habit of stepping back out of exchanges, and dropping his hands to pull his shorts up. Used to do it all the time.

I'm glad at least someone else thinks this. Personally, I also think the beer that was thrown on him onto his way to the ring got to him as well. Naz looked really nervous after all of those events if you ask me. Barrera nailed the task in hand, though- no taking that away form him. Naz was waiting to be picked apart by someone with skills.

As for habits, Dave Darts ALWAYS, and I mean ALWAYS, lifts his hand and pinces his fingers as if he's about to throw a dart when he's questioning someone. Look for it when he's next on TV!

Jermain Taylor does that shuffle with his arm in the air when his name is being called out by the MC.

Mills 'Lets get it on' Lane was a funny little ****er. He used to tap the side of his nose then point his finger at the camera when Buffer used to introduce him Good ref though. Never took no shit.
