    Mr. Miyagi would be proud.

    Miyagi or Steven Segal?

    The bar I was in went crazy when he did that, then again in the next fight when Menjivar through the elbow and knocked out Valencia

    Not exactly what Daniel-sahn did. That was great, though. He started the kick motion with the left leg (fake), and then switched to the right. That was really awesome.

    Keep your left up and protect the jawline. The guy who was KO'd left himself wide open for that kick.


    I imagine he woke up later and asked "what the f happened?"

    If I kicked someone like that, I would be on the ground writhing in pain holding my broken foot. :)

    The thing I don't like about MMA is that you can fell an opponent and then further pummel him why he is virtually defenseless. Do they have something like an 8 count like in boxing? Can/did the ref stop the fight? And if not, why didn't he after the dude was on his back and stunned?

    There is no 8 count because the fight doesnt stop once its on the ground. If you can no longer defend yourself its over. The ref did a pretty good job there in only allowing the 1 shot. I have seen poor refs let guys get pummeled there. He was giving him the chance to recover but once it was obvious randy wasnt it was all done.

    That was the end of the fight there. Once its stopped its over.

    First defense is against a straight shot. Keeping hands wide is not the strategy for that.

    The Seagal story was kind of surprising. Apparently, he was in the building and specifically asked for the kick to be thrown, from the stands.

    The field goal is good.

    He probably wasn't expecting it, but guys from he on out will. Until Silva knocked out Belfort with that kick a knockout from it was unheard of, normally that kick is a body shot.

    A.Silva said that S. Segal taught him also.

    I remember when Shonie Carter floored Serra with a spinning backfist. evryone was like "thats the only time we will see that"

    People are still getting KOd by spinning backfists.

    Grabted this front kick to the head is tougher to pull off, but somebody somewhere will caught with it. Now that its proven more poeple will train to use it.

    As much as I can't stand Seagal in general, I have to admit... given his credentials in aikido, the guy is a bada$$ and could crush most people easily.

    Segal Cant be a complete clown if two of the best MMA fighters take time to ask him about stuff and then give him respect. They Even call him Mr. Segal.

    If A Silva and L Machida give you respect like that its not because under seige was a sweet movie (which it was BTW)
