    We all know there are several types of intelligence. I know some people who are absolute knuckleheads but they're creative wizards in certain video games and sports. What are some examples in MMA?

    Is this about Jon Jones? He's pretty much the poster boy.

    Not MMA, but Mayweather fits into this category. Completely cool, calm, and calculated inside the ring, but an emotional knucklehead outside of it.

    I don’t equate the ability to react in a split second, the ability to do mechanical actions with your limbs, et all, with “IQ”.

    A faster nervous system, better coordination than others, ability toaand so on, is what it is.

    Dan Henderson is a killer in the octagon, but hearing him speak outside of it does him few favours.
