I didn't say that Mir hasn't improved his stand-up. All I'm saying is that you can't act like ONE punch proves ANYTHING. Overanalyse it all you want, but it proves nothing with regards to who has better stand-up. It can prove that, Kongo made a mistake, or that Mir threw a good punch but with regards to who has BETTER stand-up...it says nothing. Try to make a post without sounding so smug and condescending next time plz.
Posting without being smug, condescending and/or confrontational is a two-way street.

Not a fan of the act, if it is an act.

He talks a little to much smack. I'm more into the smack talk from Rampage, Josh Barnett, and Forrest. I like funny smack talk.

If I ever have to see Rampage talk crap again im gonna puke.

The whole

Rampage: Treat me like a bitch!
Rashad: Ima treat you like a bitch!
Rampage: Treat me like a bitch!
Rashad: Ima treat you like a bitch!
Rampage: Treat me like a bitch!
Rashad: Ima treat you like a bitch!

On TUF was painful to watch I think I have seen 10 year old kids have a better faceoff.

That's what I was referring to in this thread. I don't think I even mentioned boxing.

To me its semantics, stand up is boxing and Stiking is more like kick boxer style that Kongo is...Mir is much less likely to throw kicks, even though he does...

The point is that Mir has as good or better boxing regardless of one strike,the head movement and footwork along with his ability to avoid Kongo's attempts to throw indicate this....

At this point the discussion is over, are you gonna say Kongo is a better striker/stand up/ boxer than Mir...Probably...

Thats why my vBookie paid me....

Coldcall guide to debating.

1) Make same point that had been made before
2) Add unrelated smug remark about winning vbookie
3) Say that the "discussion is over", meaning any response I make is disobeying a moderator's order
4) Infract/warn/PM to taste upon my inevitable response

Feels good man

I think there was supposed to be a zing, or an earth shattering kaboom, but there was.......neither.
