How Many Fighters With 6 Pack Abs Can You Name That Have Been Stopped By Body Shots?

need to settle this argument with someone who says there have not been any fighters with defined abs dropped by body shots, particularly to the stomach/solar plexus/abdomen and not the liver. I know there have but can't think of any.

6 pack abs or a defined abdomen are not an indication of core strength or protection. Fighters with lower body fat look more shredded. Point being, a super shredded core isn't going to protect you from a kick to the tummy.

well he says it will because what Melvin says here about a soft stomach



and he can't name any fighters with ripped abs to get dropped like that from a stomach punch.

This is not an argument that's worth anyone's time. You're right, your friend's dumb. If shredded abs were so useful more fighters would have them.

I think Semmy Schilt stopped Remy Bonjasky with a body shot, but he probably did get his liver.

Tito was?

Brock Lesnar was, and his 1 pack beats most six packs.

Get him to watch Bas Rutten utoob highlights dropping fools in pancrase with his big toe, that'll solve it

I've heard that argument, but I'm not saying that is armor, instead he is saying abs = armor and no fighter with ripped abs has ever been hurt by body shots enough to end the fight. I was just having a hard time naming some to prove him wrong.

In fairness that video is showing Melvin finish Gabe with a punch to the body. That video shouldn't support anyone's argument ever
