Goons are trash and a putrid forum culture is the reason why nobody new registers. At best you're 30+ year old failed twitter "comedians" and tolerate this pig because he has the same normie sports hobby as you do.

well, i personally sure wouldnt do it. obviously im not a fighter but if i threw a punch with a broken hand it would just be for the sake of going through the motions. since even if the mind is willing, theres always going to be some subconscious barrier or something making you pull back a bit. i suppose it comes down down to how you think

I don't like Chuck getting KO'd but this was pretty cool, and Rich Franklin was pretty cool.

Rich broke his left arm blocking a kick. He knocked out Chuck with his right. It even says so in that article.

For the first few tries, you might not even know it was broken. Just that it hurt / didn't function quite right. There might not be any subconscious limitations if the adrenaline is running high enough.
I think it mostly comes down to how bad the break is.

i can't think of a time when someone has hurt their opponent with a broken hand but i'm sure it's happened.

Wasn't that also Rich Franklin? He broke his hand in the middle of beating the fighting soul out of David Loiseau.

I find your lack of faith... disturbing

This is a question for anyone who has trained in mma, but how strict about stances are coaches at the high level? I'm thinking about guys in boxing like Michael Kozlowski or any of the Mayweathers, who will not have anyone in their gym working on a different stance.

What's the best way to legally watch all of the fights of a particular boxer? I was reading up the peek-a-boo style and wanted to watch all of the Tyson fights I could, is there a streaming service that has them?

Type Mike Tyson full fight into Youtube there's tons of 'em

Yeah, no idea if there is a streaming service for it, but youtube doesn't seem to have any issue with having the full fights up and easily accessible so I'm guessing there isn't one or that the rights are a clusterfuck and nobody really knows who owns what.

Reminds me of that one Tyson documentary from years ago that talks about how he never visualized punching a guy, he visualized punching through his head and into whatever was behind him and that's why he hits so hard. I don't remember the exact quote but the dead eyed serious way he said it was pretty terrifying. Tyson is a scary dude when he wants to be - then you see him holding his pigeons and laughing and making jokes.

Joe Frazier had the bad luck to be one of the greatest boxers in the world at exactly the same time that Muhammad Ali and George Foreman existed. Same deal with Ken Norton too.

I have this link bookmarked from this thread talking about Frazier/Foreman/Ali

fatherdog posted:

Foreman/Frazier is also notable because, although there are obviously many times in history where an undisputed, undefeated champion gets defeated, there aren't all that many where they get absolutely loving murdered.

david carmichael posted:

it was the greatest fighter of all times at the peak of his capabilities getting steamrolled by the meat man

david carmichael posted:

and that lead directly into the insanity that was ali/foreman, where ali's strategy was to let the meat man who hits like a comet pummel him until he got tuckered out, which worked great somehow.

Then Ali/Frazier went at it one more time to the point where BOTH were about to quit because they'd brutalised each other so badly, but Frazier just so happened to quit first.

Absolutely loving incredible time for boxing, and it is still unbelievable to me that the guy who mostly came out of that period the most at peace and improved as an all around human being was George Foreman.

No Idea, I've never been taught to strike or trained in MMA unfortunately. But if it is then it still sounded much scarier coming from Tyson with his dead eyes than it would from a coach I'm sure.

It's how my dad taught me to throw a punch and just about every coach I've ever had has done too. It's pretty standard.

Tyson was just a rediculous genetic mix who happened to find two coaches who could turn him into an irresistible destructive force.

I loved the interview Arsenio did with Ali and Tyson (and Sugar Ray Leonard!).

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ki4UKsI8bms

Tyson gets so amped up talking about what Ali meant to him as a kid, it's really heartwarming.

Why do they still use a ring for Japanese MMA? Just tradition?
