Your kidding right...



Shitty scoring system allows an elbow to change this...

Some traditional MT's do use that stance. Shogun is a MT fighter but his style isn't something you would see in traditional MT, at least to my knowledge. The Brazillians added some TKD and chute box especially added a lot of aggression and brawling.



Yup. A couple times and before the Hominick fight for sure.

Hey look theres Van Opstal and Josh Jauncy too.

That and Gus was working takedowns as well so it's not like he was only using boxing.

You can't use a traditional muay thai stance in mma because you need to be able to sprawl. You can't stand so upright like in muay thai.

There have been a few great matchups like that. Anthony Njokuani versus Andre Winner is beautiful.
