Those throws against Silva would be some of the most bad ass things to pull off in a street fight. They revolve around technique and clinch work but give the appearance that you have hulk strength and can just bitch toss whatever you grab a hold of.
It needed to be said, because threads like these general fuel the inane presumption that mma fighters are a world-class practitioner in every discipline that their fighting techniques happen to bear some resemblance to; they might even deceive some mma fans into thinking that Matt Brown is actually really good at Muay Thai solely because he happens to throw elbows and knees in the clinch.
I am not a hater, but let's be realistic.
"You think that you're getting good at things, and then you realize real quick that there's another level out there..."
this thread isn't implying matt brown would be a muay thai lumpinee champ.
