Mirko in pro wrestling in Japan:
It doesn't look very "fake" to me. He also looks like he's back on gear if you watch the whole video.

Pro-wrestling in Japan is very different than it is over here. To put it simply, it's staged, but they definitely take damage.

Kazmaier did pro wrestling? Forgive me if I'm not getting a joke you're telling, my mental clarity is at an all time low right now. Who was that guy anyways, Kyle Turley?????

How do I know? His toes. He's aiming for right of that guys head, then hooking left. More straight extension then over, an L shape, not purely a circular sweep. If he was aiming to hit below the left ear, his toes would be curled inward at the extension of the strike.
It's a subtle, very professional difference, only guys at CC's level can safely pull this off. That has to be choregraphed and well rehearsed. The margin for error here is not much, he may have really hurt that guy,the wrastler turned his head to the left and took the blow the back of the head, he should have turned right and took it to the side of the neck. That's a lot of power, look at that velocity.
Better stick with the slow static stuff, Strongman, and leave the slick speed striking and theatrics to us professionals.

Kyle Turdley, I think, is the guy in that wrasslin video with The Big Show? Don't worry, Jas will put up that Wandy shaking his head gif, for my bad joke.
It must be scary as hell anticipating that kick from Crocop. No matter how precise 1 out of 10 of those is a skull shaker.

Cro Cop To The Top (aka CCTTT): "Highlights Mirko's career form his K-1 days, through his victory in PRIDE'S Open Weight Grand Prix"
CCTTT <--download, but worth the time. I looked for a direct link, but couldn't find an active one, sorry.
It's about a half an hour long and an excellent watch for CC nuthuggers and MMA fans alike!!!

Here's another DeSouza fight. This is from Jungle Fight in Brazil. More lethargic standup followed by a couple of nice takedowns and some great grappling.
01-06-2008, 01:07 AM
Damn, that was a nasty kneebar. Looked like the Kubis guy didn't think Desouza could get it in that exact position, ouch.

Hell yeah! If you can trap the knee under your armpit the torque is ridiculous. That Brazilian dude definitely took some damage.

That was pretty vicious at the end. I didn't think Kid looked that great. He was getting pounded with uppercuts in the clinch.

Robbie "Anderson's lucky I'm not in the UFC" Lawler HL reel (older stuff)
Too bad Robbie isn't a Brit.

Lawler is the sh*t, what an animal. I love what he did to Tiki. Why can't the UFC put on events like UFC 40 anymore? They have much more to work with now, but the events are not that great. I know I know, they're two or three times as frequent, but still.
Tito vs Shamrock
Chuck vs Sobral
Lawler vs Tiki
Matt Hughes vs Gil Castillo
Carlos Newton vs Pete Spratt
Andrei Arlovski vs Ian Freeman
Janitor vs Travis Wiuff
Phillip Miller vs Mark Weir
At the time that was an unbelievable card. I really miss 02-05.5.

Yeah, I know that was just a little joke for Alex. I'm sure Lindland would give him fits too. He'd KO Filho hard if he fought like he did against Sonnen, though.

I actually rented 2 of them with friends in 96 so I had seen a little bit of the action. I have now also rented most of the UFC's from 1-25 from a local video store. It's an interesting progression to watch. Damn the Polar Bear was good! I haven't seen much from 25 to 45 or so though. I tried downloading a bunch from the secret place but nobody was ever seeding them.
As for Pride I've seen almost every one except 1-5 and most Bushido's as well (who wants to watch little guys that I can throw around )

Yeah, I thought about buying that Legacy 1 set but every where I read about implied that it wasn't worth it. Were there any good Carl Malenko fights ?
