GRAPHIC VIDEO: MMA star knocks out opponent with brutal spinning elbow
That is one devastating technique. He never saw it coming. A spinning elbow to the temple with that kind of force can easily kill someone or put the in a basket for the rest of their life.
There have been a few MMA combatants die in the ring or as a result of their participation. I am just wait for the body count to go up.
At least 6 MMA fighters have died while in the ring or … – Courier-Journal
Floyd Mayweather set for New Year’s Eve fight in Japan’s Rizin Fighting Federation
I said this way back when Mayweather and that nuts-case-chair-throwing Irishman Conor McGregor fought. If two people, one from the boxing world and one from the martial arts world, both the best in their sport, the same caliber, squared off in the ring, both men were allowed to use all of the weapons at their disposal, the boxer would not stand a chance.
Essentially, McGregor took the fight for the gigantic payday, BUTT was NOT allowed to use any of his martial arts skills. Who can really blame him?? He got upwards of 100 million to fight Mayweather.
Take a look at the video above where to guy got knocked out with a spinning elbow. If Mayweather was hit with a technique like that or a round house or heel kick, it would be game over.
BUTT, when one of the combatants is restricted to what they can or can not use, that is NOT a true test of which is the dominant sport. Unequivocally, hands-down, without a doubt, in a contest as I laid out, the martial artist would win 98% of the time, possibly 100%.
It stands to reason, the martial artist is going to the OK Corral with 20 different weapons at his disposal, where the boxer has 1. 20 rounds in the gun or 1, what are the odds of the boxer winning.
I know that Mayweather and the McGregor thing was another in the long line of ways for promoters to make a big buck; BUTT it WAS NOT a true test of which is the more deadly sport. COMMON-SENSE
If McGreror was allowed to use all of his martial arts skills against Mayweather, the outcome of the fight would have been entirely different.
New Years Eve 2018:
Mayweather, who was present at the press conference, will take on 20-year-old kickboxer Tenshin Nasukawa at the Saitama Super Arena.
I have no idea at what skill level Nasukawa is. Is he just a push-over for Mayweather to play cat and mouse with or is he a highly skilled kick-boxer?
Remember I said; both men having the degree of skill in their own sport, both able to use all their weapons, the boxer does not stand a chance.
Here is a great example. I just researched Nasukawa’s skill level. He is ranked 8th in the world. A fighter ranked 8th in the world fighting an undefeated boxer who some say, pound for pound, at one time, used to be the best on the planet??? GMAFB
