    A lot of them punches were bare-fisted wherre you need less power than with a boxing glove.

    Oh, yeah.

    This is a Mark Ant thread.

    I've been away for a while, I forgot how things are like.

    :oops:

    On a drizzly Tuesday, with a tub of ice-cream under his left arm, does Mike Tyson punch harder than a rabid giraffe? Everybody post please, and then I'll tell you how you are wrong.

    There’s definitely a place for Karate technique and footwork in MMA

    Yes, that`s Conor McGregor`s style except he slips shots too, I don`t think they are taught to slip punches in karate classes.

    They are, but like most traditional martial arts there is an over reliance on blocking and countering.
