MMA History

Postby pwcmed » Fri Dec 17, 2010 4:55 pm

Last night was the last show for the WEC and it ended with a bang. I was loading linux on an old VIA board and had it playing in the background and heard the crowd erupt. I went over to check it out and saw the highlight and could not believe what I saw.

Never seen a Chuck Norris style roundhouse kick actually work. Nice! Maybe there is some small merit in taekwondo.

It's like a Superman punch but using the fence and your foot/shin. I'm excited about the WEC mixing with the UFC. The little guys seem to always put on the best shows.

That was a pretty cool move but how was it even remotely like a superman punch? The WEC mixing with UFC is a pretty cool deal. You're right, the little guys are scrappy!
Deep in the human unconscious is a pervasive need for a logical universe that makes sense. But the real universe is always one step beyond logic.

Superman punch - Well... I guess because he did the feet move, jumped and kicked. That's the best I've got.
