50 Leg Kicks!

Holy Crap Cerrone. I re-watched the Cerrone fight and counted every leg kick. That last kick to end the fight capped it off at 50 exactly, and almost every one of them had a good amount of power.

Hell, I'm surprised his opponent even lasted as long as he did. Hats off to Cerrone for his domination.

However, I will say this. Cerrone doesn't listen to Greg Jackson to save his life. Between rounds 2 and 3, Jackson told him to do two things, 1) double up his jab, and then throw a hard right (2) throw two leg kicks until his left hand drops, then throw a head kick. He didn't do any of that in the third. Hell, he didn't throw a single head kick in the last round.

Good job to you Cerrone, but why even train with Jackson if you are simply going to ignore his instructions.

I agree. If your paying someone for their opinion then you should be taking heed.

On the other hand, if it's working keep doing it. What Cerrone was doing was working just fine so he might as well keep doing it until it doesn't work anymore.

Yeah, he usually doesn't pay much attention to Greg, in any of his fights. Neither does Condit except when Greg puts on his mean face, drops the f bomb and tells him to go to war.

Interesting observation. Thing is he's not the most cerebral fighter out there if you know what I mean. Very instinctual. He reminds me of Maynard.

I wanted him to do exactly that before Jackson said it Vagner was landing those punches because he wasn't keeping him off of him with a really stiff jab and headkicks. He was just kind of lazily tossing his jab out not throwing any power punches and refusing to throw headkicks which are harder to catch for takedowns than leg kicks. Mediocre strikers also don't counter off of head kicks and you see this a lot in MMA where having to block head kicks destroys their rhythm and timing.

You have to just chalk it up to that is just how Cerrone is though. Being a fan of Cowboy is generally frustrating as he actively refuses to do what is in his best interest and has mental meltdowns from time to time.

Cerrone should have listened to Jackson it would have made it harder for Vagner to get ahold of him and he would have gotten a finish. Who the hell changes the way they strike to almost nothing but leg kicks to avoid takedowns. The only reason it worked was because his opponent was tiny and easily out muscled and bad at catching kicks.

Well he's not paying him for just his opinion, he's paying him for excellent training facilities, the opportunity to train with the best fighters in the world, excellent instructors and so on. The opinion and gameplanning is just a bonus.

Personally I would listen to Greg Jackson, given how much he's changed fighters' fortunes and improved gameplanning.

But if someone just wants his training and not his in cage advice, especially when he's already winning, well I can't grudge him that too much. I mean what if that headkick got him taken down and choked out with 30 secs left on the clock? In the end if your fighting instincts aren't agreeing with something, it's hard to do the opposite.

He should have pulled the trigger , the other guy was completely done and could have been finished with any constant pressure.

He got the win yes but i was disappointed that he didnt try put him away.
