    How would fans rate Nunes`s kick that stopped Holm out of 10?

    I catch a lot of MMA and Thai fighters during sparring with a karate style roundhouse kick. It’s the chambering of the knee that seems to deceive them. MMA and Thai tend to swing or throw the kick instead of firing it.

    Not a good video IMO, trying to build a case from MMA rather than head to head, stand up striking. If the Japanese form of roundhouse is used in pure Thai rules generally it comes off second best. Quite a few of those supposed "Karate kicks" examples aren't at all as they are from Kyokushin trained practitioners or trainers - Kyokushin throws Thai style since the 50's.
