Why is GSP's JAB so dangerous? (Answer within)

He was keeping Koscheck guessing if it was a "shooting" motion or a jab coming to the face. This is why MMA is so great. The Jab was being set up almost as a fake shot. Koscheck was expecting a shot almost every time and instead got hit in the eye. Koscheck also has muscle memory to be ready for the shot due to years of wrestling and probably a training camp of sprawling so that jab was even more lethal.

Perfect game plan by GSP and Team Jackson.

Because it lands. Accuracy. Phone Post

Douche - The reason why the Jab was used so effectively is because Kos isnt used to seeing it. Why? Because in MMA nobody uses a jab. It's all over hand rights and leaping left hooks. Kos got a boxing lesson @ UFC 124.


 Truf ...

GSP would have litten up any top WW that night including Daley.

probably not...GSP would have had a completely different gameplan.

I think GSP has taken the title of "master fight strategist" away from previous title holder Randy Couture

Because in addition to Kos thinking the takedown was coming immediately following the jab, "MMA Striking" in terms of speed, snap, footwork and head movement is a fucking disgrace 90% of the time. This time was no exception.

 He's still ahead of Daley, who couldn't out-grapple a 6 year old paraplegic girl.

Freddie Roach!

great analysis!

frederic - Rogan and Goldie seem to steer the audience wrong with their "the best ever", "world class", "never seen this before" theatrics.


I miss "top shelf" and "top of the food chain".
It's good to rotate the sayings once in a while.

Most of mma got a boxing lesson at UFC 124.

 

GSP and Dangerous shouldn't even be used in the same sentence.

GSP's jab and that lead leg cut kick. = BAD NEWS FOR ANYONE FIGHTING HIM.

A one-eyed opponent helps.

because Koschek was scared that he would be taken down

Plus Koscheck was standing right in front of him with his hands down, instead relying on his non existant head movement to slip the jabs.

 Hey look someone who just started watching MMA this year

tell that to hieron, hughes, sherk, trigg, penn, serra, and fitch. ask them how non-dangerous he is

Tad Ghostal - A one-eyed opponent helps.
Yes, Kos showed up to the fight with his eye like that....

KOS isn't getting surgery right now. He's going to be able to fight tomorrow morning...

Fact of the matter is that if your oponent puts you out of a job for a year, he's dangerous.

When crocop breaks an orbital he's a legend.

When Manny dominates a 12 round fight in a similar fashion he's a legend.

When gsp doe sit he sucks.

Keep on hating haters.

THis!

where are all the "Kos has a boxing advantage" clowns at now?

KOS is better than GSP at absolutely nothing when it comes to MMA
