"WTF?"

The guy has been doing MMA for like 12 years or something now and he still doesn't have any idea how to strike. I don't even know how that's possible, surely he's been training striking as long as he's been in MMA.

If John Doe went to a Muay Thai class once per week for 12 years he would have better striking than Jake.

Sorry for the weird rant, I just don't get it.
Imagine how bad he would be diving for legs against Anderson? Silva could pull out a cellphone and start texting and use the other hand to KO Shields.
