that some of the lighter weight class fighters who fight a certain way are boring or point fight, two mentioned often are cruz and edgar. I just wanna say that thats how lighter fighters really fight, they arent heavy guys who can just plant their feet and throw bombs its just not gonna happen. I happen to be to be around that weight (Im 145ish) and have taken martial arts and thats how you really fight, others do it too. Footwork, motion, speed. Also those guys dont have ko power too soooo........

 

My point being that these lighter guys that move a lot are still real and effective fighters. You dont have to be fans of their styles (which I can understand) but to think they arent real good fighters or skilled is ignorance.

 

Just had to air my 2 cents.

Hey' date=' there are some lighter dudes who are more than capable of unleashing dynamite. Aldo, Gomi, Penn, for example.[/quote']

 

True but thats not the point of my thread, guys that move, use footwork and speed may not have the best style for the fans but they are effective and skilled and thats how a lot of peopple who are that size actually fight is what Im tryin to say

the reason i don't like some of those lighter fighters is the same reason i don't like some of the heavier guys. Frankie does not throw a strke with the intent to do damage. It's so painfully obvious and annoying. To say that's just the way lighter weight guys fight is just ridiculous. Not all lighter weight guys are boring or suck or whatever you're complaining that people are complaining about.

Wow i think your completely wrong. Just because he isn't loading up on his punches doesn't mean they aren't effective or don't hurt.

i didn't say they weren't effective' date=' but cmon, clearly he's not trying to knock people out with them. Especially his kicks. Cruz is better imo.[/quote']

 

The one thing that bugs me about Cruz is he gets full mount and he gets the back and yet he still can't finish the fight. I'm actually a Cruz, Aldo, and Edgar fan though.

^I honestly dont think you can say that, how do you know hes not throwin to do damage, your not in the fight your just an observer, his (edgar) form is real good, hes throwing combinations, turning his hips/lower body on the heavier shots (yes he doesnt throw them a whole lot). Just cause the result isnt a ko doesnt mean he isnt tryin to hurt the other guy. I think he knows he doesnt have ko power and thats why he fights the way he does, his technique is good and he fights hard so (he doesnt throw crazy haymakers) i dont know how you can really fault the guy other than you simply dont like the fighting style (footwork, movement), which is fine, but you cant make your presumption.

that's kind of what i meant. Part of the reason he doesn't have ko power is because he doesn't commit to his strikes,

I despise Edgar and Maynard because neither one could finish a fight if their life depended on it.

 

Edgar could use that speedy boxing to try actually hurting guys and wearing them down to take them to the ground and pound them out. He either can't or doesn't. He is allegedly a great wrestler but he tends to use it only for pointing. He can't submit hardly anyone. His style was perfect for frustrating Penn but it's really dull and won't serve him well against either Bendo or Guida.

 

Maynard tends to use his wrestling more for ground and pound but lacks the capability to seal a TKO or get a sub.

 

I can't stand how people criticize GSP because he hasn't been finishing when we know he can. I hate how these guys are "top" lightweights and just utterly lack the skills to finish.

I don't think they suck' date=' just hate the weightclasses and wish they kept those classes for other Orgs. And edgar??? F that, I have expectations in LW.[/quote']

What like 'ground specialist' G-Sot, who couldnt takedown Dennis Siver and got smashed up on the feet? Whatever, man. Enjoy the G-man while he lasts, mate. He's not gonna be around much longer.

Lol I'd watch a G-Sot fight any day over ****ing Edgar, is that even debatable? And being a ground specialist and excelling at TD's are two different things idiot.

 

And keep 10'ing. Looking through people sigs? GTFO?
