during the formation off mma striking styles needed to utilize the palm strikes because gloves weren't used. The open palm strike is used as an effective alternative to closed fist punches because without gloves it is very easy to break ones hand on an opponents face. The video you posted showed a man with a clear knowledge of ccq and demonstrated a clearly practiced form of an open palm strike. His stance demonstrated a readiness for combat, and he clearly held back too, he put 0% of his body weight into it.

In other words the video is irrelevant. The strike was intended to ko.
The guy in the video I posted didn't use an open palm strike, but a (power) slap. That's two different techniques. Open palm strikes you mostly see i.e. in old Pancrase (as closed fist strikes weren't allowed according to the old rules), slaps are a main technique in the art of i.e. Pekiti Tirsia Kali.

And even with a lighter slap you can inflict serious damage if you hit the ear as you easily could rip the eardrum and destroy the equilibrium.

I can't believe people are overreacting over this, if any of you ever played football, have u ever chest bump your opponent for the hell of it or done something which is classify as unsportsmanlike just to provoke a reaction.

Chael sonnen did not react to it, in fact i'm sure he loved it.
Chael hit Andy earlier? I don't not believe you, just interested in seeing it.

That being said, as much as I don't like Chael Sonnen, I dislike Silva more. I'm sick and tired of seeing Anderson Silva wearing that belt and I want to see him get his ass kicked even worse than last time, I can live with Chael Sonnen being the Middleweight Champion so long as Silva is embarrassed and disgraced.

It's a shame we won't be able to see Silva fail and disappoint his family and friends and thousands of Brazilians in his home country.
What a nightmare you live in. And guess what? It will continue!

I think Silva's cheap shot showed mental weakness. You wouldn't see Ali do that, or any of the greats. They could mentally drain their opponents with their words. It looked like an act of frustration from Silva. He so badly wants to hurt Chael but can't. That's my take, anyway.

Silva is a damn good fighter, but his 'humble champion' routine is precisely that. He's arrogant. He's in love with himself. And he's a total dick when he wants to be. And there's absolutely nothing wrong with this, aside from his wilfully blind fans.

Silva isn't JDS. In fact, he's nothing like him. JDS would be my definition of the humble Brazilian champion.
Where did I say he was humble? Nowhere. Where did I say he wasn't egotistical? Nowhere. I don't think he's a douchebag though but that's an opinion thing. I said Brazilians don't generally do the WWE thing and they don't. Anderson's anger I feel is very real and I don't fault him for that. Chael pisses me off and he isn't even talking about me.

Honestly I am tired off this whole affair. I'm almost to the point of just not wanting to watch the damn fight. At all. The Chael fans and Chael have done more to hurt my love of this sport than anything else I can think of.

Tomorrow night we are getting a rematch between possibly the GOAT of mma and a felon who cheated in their last fight to almost beat him. It's a god damned joke. And the sport of mma is the ******* punchline.

That is not dead which can eternal lie and withs strange aeons even death may die.

The poster who said it earlier was correct, though. If Sonnen had done this, can you Silva fans honestly tell me you wouldn't be in here having an aneurism?

marchthegame would be singing a much different tune, I can guarantee you that.

In all honestly if Sonnen had done it i would really not care. In fact i would expected Sonnen to do it. I'm a huge Silva fan that is no lie, at the end of the day if Sonnen had done it i'm sure Silva would have done something back. I actually loved every minute of the Maia fight.

This fight has been built up since 2010, do people really expect these guys to shake hands etc? This is one of the most heated rivalry in UFC history, I would not expect less that what has taken place already.

I was expecting a little more fireworks pre fight such as SOnnen going back to words of war, but since Tuesday he has toned down. Maybe he realizes that the fight is now on, or its part of a game.

However all that is left is the fight, either Chael will back up his words or Silva will kill him. Either way the UFC landscape is changing tmr. The thing is I have started to like Sonnen, when he is not fighting Anderson Silva i'm cheering for the guy.

Lol. Well if you're feeling this way, imagine how anderson feels. I wouldn't want to be on Chael's bad side. That's a guy that can mess with your head.

Then again, I'm not too sure I'd want to fight a mad crazed Silva either.
