    This dude was one hell of a MT guy. Best elbows in the game.
    Sad to hear he has struggled since he retired.

    In before all the haters pop up to start bad mouthing him. He definitely utilized them alot more then other fighters at his level and up at the higher weightclasses I wish he would've been able to fight more higher tier fighters where elbow were allowed. Outside of maybe Shootboxing though I highly doubt too much guys really wanted to fight him under FTR fights.

    I think the amount of push back was warranted given the amount of blind nuthugging he received back in the day. His fans used to come in here and hype the shit out of him while he was turning down offers from K-1 and beating up scrubs in Australia for years while being given "Elbow God" status despite an endless amount of Thai's past/present being more effective with them against better competition.

    That said, he is a bad ass and I would love to train at his gym. He's just not what he was hyped up to be.

    big corbett fan, but it kinda is at his weight.



    shame that glory wasted him by giving him Spong and Saki as his opponents. Could have made a decent run in Glory.

    Agreed, they should have given him a couple of warm-up fights.
    Corbett is a scary guy in muay thai and in kickboxing. Always enjoyed his fights.

    A good match up is a good match up, it's just being able to get back up there for the rematch.
    Why waste time watching warm-up fights when they're all up there already.

    Ya because their hasn't been many period. Everyone 170 KG+ fought Kickboxing because that's where all the talent was...

    LOL @ Warm-up fight in Glory. Most of his career was a warm-up fight...

    Spoken like a true keyboard warrior. His first fight in Glory he lost to Spong, yeah, but on their first fight Corbett knocked Spong out. Spong refused to rematch Corbett in full MT rules. If Spong or Saki fought Corbett under MT rules it would be a very different outcome.
    I just love how MT guys have to cross over into K1 rules to prove themselves, yet K1 dudes dont have to fight under MT rules to prove their worth.
