2 Headkick (T)KO's in a row for Vitor huh? I personally have to say I am impressed, especially a wheel kick. Vitor may be doing the single thing that most fighters forget to do, evolve. I wonder what it will take for him to get another title shot? I don't expect a different outcome, but still it would be interesting to see.

I wouldn't mind a second fight between Silva and Belfort. Providing that Anderson gets past Weidman, and a superfight doesn't materialize.

If Vitor threw that kick against Anderson... He'd see the same expression Forrest saw and then he'd go to sleep.

Head position is and remains the most important tool when defending punches.

People love to talk about putting on earmuffs and neglect that a large amount of the greatest fighters in combat sports history fought with their hands near their waist.


Not to mention you don't slip the punches with your hands at your knees unless you are showboating, the hands obviously come up to parry when you see the punches.

Lyoto does this, Anderson does this, Jones does this.

Roflcopter is right but you still need the requisite skills and most guys in MMA simply don't have those. If you don't shield your chin with your lead shoulder, know how to roll with punches, have good footwork, etc you better wear those earmuffs. Great fighters are great fighters because they can do that stuff and keeping your hands low gives you better angles with less tells but again those are great fighters.
