It also keeps your muscles relaxed and arguably allows smoother, snappier straight punches.

Not a coincidence most of the best jabbers in history held their lead hand low(Holmes, Clay, Foster, etc)

Well one fluid longer movement is going to gain and share momentum better so I am buying that it makes them snappier. If you think about how a straight punch works having your hands high slows down the process and makes the motion jerky so you are either going to end up throwing from your elbow or being significantly slower from start to finish.

In other words rather than the entirety of your arm in one motion with equal momentum you are going to end up starting your movement from your elbow. As a result your hand to your elbow and elbow to shoulder are not only moving separately but at different speeds.

Forgotten? I guess that could explain it. Or it could be a case of zero experience.

Who do you spar with? who's your coach?

That's a laugh... Jacare is a sub artist but got UD by Rockhold...

Chael and Weidman would get pulverized...

Vitor has been on a terror path recently and has just as much claim to fight (if not more than Weidman) for a rematch with Silva.

agreed. However, the Weidman - Silva match has been made already. Vitor has to get in line.


Fedor, Mir, Lytle, Serra, Hendo, Chuck, Minowaman, Maynard, Forrest, Hunt
Pickett, Cerrone, Matt Brown, Bisping, Weidman, Barnett, Lawler

Totally agree, I'm just stating that Vitor did it the hard way and more than proved he deserves a rematch.

Weidman is going to get demolished by Silva... Belfort is by far the #2 guy and only challenge to Silva.

TRT/Hate for Vitor on the board has been ridiculous. The guy is 36 and on a tear. God/TRT or whatever he's on, man I cannot stop cheering for the 'old school' guys.

Vitor>>>>Sonnen.

Stupid logic.

Though it would be a great fight between two of the worlds greatest fighters.
I was only doing MMA math for the guy who himself relied on MMA math (you know... fire with fire just for the hell of it). But you go ahead and ignore his post so that you can slam me. I certainly wish I was as cool and intelligent as you.

With the majority of the old guard retired, its nice to see guys like Hendo and Vitor being on the warpath. Its sad to see Franklin and Mir collecting more losses.
