    This was my favourite, when the Rock gave the “If you smell....”

    @DerpDiDerp @Aydamn Types of celebrities who attend MMA events also appeal to lower class, it's their audience.

    Professional wrestling is similar to MMA, it appeals to lower class, uneducated people, so the likes of The Rock are promoting themselves to their audience by attending MMA events.

    How much do you want to bet me that I am more educated than you?

    how much money do you have in your bank account? I could buy your whole life.

    Andy Hug for live! I like many others too.
    Dennis Alexio back in the 80-90 was an absolute monster.
    I also like a lot of guys like Petrosyan, Semmy, Aerts, Dekers, Ernesto, Kaman, Bonjasky, and probably more that i don't remember.
    I'm a huge Kyokushin lover as well. I watch tons of Karate stuffs too. But i train in many different martial arts for long time and its normal.
    Some people don't get how more difficult and different is when even kicks are involved. In MMA is even harder, there is way more stuffs.

    As far as favourite matches can't say i have a particular one or two, but i can tell you mostly the old school, before K1, K1 too, and there is good ones currently as well. Same with boxing to be fair.

    Trump attended the Affliction events that were well over 10 years ago and there's always celebs at UFC events.

    Doesn't really make sense what you said though doesn't it? Kickboxing is punching, kicking and knees. It's also fought at a faster pace as there's lesser rounds so you can't just be lazy and do little for a few rounds.

    My favourite fighters right now Rico and Antonio Plazibat but my all time favourites are Semmy Schilt and probably Mighty Mo. Guys like Mike Bernardo and Peter Aerts I enjoyed watching. I love watching guys like Francisco Filho who didn't have that good of boxing skills but his power was pretty crazy!

    This fight here I've always enjoyed, the way Botha was so confident he'd outbox Mighty Mo then Mo just beat him with the hands! Botha always said Mike Tyson hit him the hardest when it comes to boxers but I believe he has stated overall it was Mighty Mo, not hard to believe when a 127kg man has a right hand like that!

    Boxing became so popular because it was really common amongst poor people. Most sports were exclusively for the wealthy so the lower class came with things like dog fighting, **** fights, and boxing. I don’t even watch mma that much but don’t act like it’s just for trashy people, there’s celebrities at pretty much every major ufc event.

    Kicking is harder than striking not more effective than boxing other than the fact that legs are longer than arms.

    That`s why women often kick guys in the balls.

    lol you name two advantages over punches and still not effective?

    If a jab is used to maintain distance and keep your opponent at bay, than a teep or front kick will do it better.
