You can you will probably get your ass kicked though. Stick with muy thai for standup or kickboxing would be my second choice. OR your best bet would be to fight at flyweight 125 lbs and practice greco roman wrestling. With your bench press you could easily clinch your oponent and through them clean out of the fricken arena. Nickname yourself the human juggernaut or mighty mouse.

terminator - lol ok ok.

whats wrong with kung fu as a stand up? I saw a guy whoop up on some decent fighters in a match with some tae kwon do spinning kicks and stuff. I don't know how kung fu and tae kwon do differ, but if tae works, why doesn't kung fu?

oh smashy my boy im just giving ya some grief. Anyway in my opinion kung fu has nice moves but to me they are to fancy and show boaty kinda like a van damn movie. You know like blood sport. That shit would just get you taken down and beat on. You want some muay thai so you can be lethal at a distance and in the clinch. Then get you some solid bjj and your set. A little wrestling wouldnt hurt either. Than after years of getting them down to a pat then you can mix some of that fancy stuff in. As the great line from major league 2 goes "I dont want to see any of that oley bullshit"

kung fu isnt meant for a ring, its meant to finish a fight in the quickest way possible, usually meaning death....most of the strikes are illegal in a ring, such as attacks to the throat/eyes/back of the neck/etc etc.

tkd works because it is actually pretty similar to muay thai (as long as its not belt factory crap), the main difference being tae kwon do is a lot faster, while muay thai strikes hurt more.

hahaha

dude trust me tae kwon do and kung fu is good for beating up people who suck at fighting. Any decent boxer, kickboxer or muay thai fighter would kick the shit out of an excellent TKD/kung fu practitioner. But those martial arts are fine if you want to do flashy "cool looking" shit, but for fighting they're a joke.

oh ok, so learn some bjj and mt.

by the way - here's where i got my inspiration for the tae kwon do
it's a heavyweight doing spinning kicks and even a back flip right after he wins

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KW2p4ra9fPM

most of the kicks are after 2:30ish into the video. the video is about 3:30 long in total

Those fancy spinning kicks... were not very effective at all.

You want MMA learn Muay thai,BJJ, some greco roman, and some boxing. Fancy shit will get you killed.
