    I know a lot of the guys in this sub-forum love to grapple, etc. but I've always been too light and easily overpowered and felt I could never get into it when I was younger. I couldn't execute a takedown to save my life.Schoolyard fights I always threw hooks and jabs.

    Anyways, back in high school my mate showed me a tape from England and it had footage of this guy on it. I was amazed not only by his finesse, but also his amazing control in the ring. Every round I watched, it looked like it was his birthright to win. The guy is 5'4" 125 :o That's when I started watching a lot of boxing and K-1 and bought a pair to start training with for fun. :bigthumb:

    Well someone finally made a very badass highlight of him. It's rather long, but I assure you well worth it. :bowdown: :bowdown: :bowdown:

    are you English?

    not many americans use "mate"

    Hamed was great at the time until he dissolved into mr religious, he says he's coming back but the guy looks obese now. I doubt he will be back at 120lbs anytime soon.
