    Randy is going to have to stop using his boxing style bob/weave. A good striker is going to capitalize on it. Mirko is going to have a walk in the park catching that head with a high kick in mid-weave.

    Yeah, watching that fight I told my friend that shit was going to get him in trouble. It worked with sylvia because he was a giant oaf. GG could have capitalized on that big time.

    I doubt he'll do that if/when he fights cro-cop. I think he was doing it against Gonzaga because he wasn't worried about the Head kick. He said in the pre-fight package that he felt that the cro-cop fight was the anomaly not the norm.

    He was doing it much less, b/c he knew that it could be an issue. If he fights crocop he's not going to do that, for sure.

    You should get a hold of him. I'm sure he could really use you as a standup coach.

    And yeah its bullshit head movement is a good thing even with kicks and knees just most MMA guys haven't taken their boxing/standup to that level.

    i cant understand what you are trying to say, but bobbing your head a bunch is a terrible idea in MMA, as is baiting with a lowered lead arm.

    There was a fight on a UFC unleashed where one guy was a former boxer and kept weaving left and right to avoid punches. His opponent faked a punch threw a high kick and it was over.
