uniqueid09 -K-1 striking has been utterly underwhelming, and a Thai boxers primary value lies in his clinch fighting. Leg kicks have an even lower success rate than head kicks when it comes to damaging someone in MMA, and the reason is obvious: Head kicks can end a fight almost immediately if the stars are aligned, but leg kicks are often based on their cumulative effect, much like a stiff jab in boxing.
lol @ this bullshit.
LOL @ legkicks are under-whelming in Thai boxing.
Have you ever thought that MAYBE those cats have super-calcified their shin bones since birth? They have killed all the sensitive nerves on their legs.
Ya they can go out there and kick each other for however many rounds.
Floyd has never taken a single legkick in his entire life. he doesn't even know how to stand properly in receiving a leg-kick from a leg-kicking specialist with supercalcified bones.
Floyd limps after 2 legkicks from a good thai fighter. He may stay up. but his footwork is gone.
Without his footwork he's nothign but a sitting duck.
