It’s been proven that a good kicker beats a good boxer? Do you have any examples? I think it’s been proven that a good KICKBOXER beats a good boxer 9 times out of 10, but kicking alone (such as tae kwon do) is not effective enough on its own.

I do recall cung le had badass takedowns, slams and throws in that sanshou league. cung was more dangerous back then, dont really know why he stopped. all he does now is kick and that requires lots of cardio.

What he’s saying is that ON TOP of being a world san shou champion/ world class kickboxer, Cung Le has fantastic wrestling. You see other stand-up fighters lose their nerve because they are worried about getting taken down. Takedowns are actually a big part of San Da/San Shou, and Cung Le wrestled through high school and college. He’s a more well rounded fighter than most people think. Rich has a good chance to win this fight with his conditioning. Rich thinks Cung won’t use his wrestling offensively, but I think Cung will in fact take him down a few times to rack up some points and will out-strike him to win round 1 (and possibly win round 2). Unfortunately for Cung, conditioning often beats skill in MMA, and Rich has cardio for days. Is this a 3 or 5 round fight? Makes a big difference in this one…

Too many boring wrestlers and haymaker throwers. It’s going to be a while till we see another Cung le, Anderson Silva, Anthony Pettis kick. I say bring that Marcus Aurelio Capoeira guy into the UFC. That jump switch kick K.O. was pretty sick.
