“I fought that whole fight angry. That’s a very good example of when not to do it. I thought we were going to just strike and then he pushed me up against the cage. He started foot stomping me and fractured both of my feet. OUCH!!! He just kept holding me and stomping the feet so when I got free and had a chance to punch I threw hard and wild. I was landing some, but he has a hard head. He counters really well when he’s getting hit and that’s not good for me being wide open with my chin up”.
I've always wondered how effective those foot stomps were. I think Marcos Ruas was one of the first fighters I saw use foot stomps. Foot stomps FTW!!!

Maximus: For the glory of the Empire, sire.
Baked, not fried... the healthy choice.
