No wrestling, just exchanging haymakers and what not.
Even though Wand smashed him twice, Rampage via better chin and defense.
But Melvin was a beast back in the day.
Prime Rampage would've either:
taken him down and smashed his face in
survived Manhoef's early storm and shattered his glass chin with a vicious hook
Rampage v Prime Bas......
Did Melvin have a glass chin back in the day too? Or was that just as of late or after the Robert Lawler fight?
It has certainly regressed in recent years but it was always well below average, especially for a high-level fighter.
That's a shame!
He has a touch of that "Oopsy Daisy" in him too. Like Melvin, or any there fighter that has a fight in the bag then somehow finds a way to lose regardless.
Manhoef has been KO'd 3 times in the last 14 years (in mma that is). People always pretend like he has a glas chin because he got KO'd a couple times in kickboxing, where he was fighting fucking Heavyweights.
For reference, in that same period Hendo was KO'd 3 times as well. Mark Hunt 5 times (once by Manhoef btw). Shogun 3 times.
Manhoef's glass chin is a fucking myth
Lol have you looked at the early portion of his MMA career? Most of his fights were against tomato cans and he still got cleanly KO'd twice in his first nine fights.
He was KO'd only twice in his early careeer. By fucking Dirty Bob and Rodney Glunder. I don't expect you to know these fighters but believe me there is no shame in getting KO'd by either
Yeah page has a great chin but if Melvin stayed smart he would beat page easy. He takes risks so he might get caught though.
Rampage via iron jaw.
Both guys have records barely above .500
And before you begin, please don't even begin to compare those two to guys like BJ Penn and Mark Hunt, you'll only make yourself look worse.
The dudes only been KOd 5 times in over 40 fights. His chins not the greatest but towards the end when he did get KOd it seemed from shots that weren't the hardest. Especially in the Lawler and Schillin fight he was dominating then tapped unconscious.
Rampage gets kicked into oblivion.
Melvin was an absolute Beast in striking years ago.
If he had high level grappling with that kind of athletism he would have been unbeatable.
No Mercy via total brutalization.
Google doesn't tell the whole story bud. Dirty Bob was a Bad Motherfucker in his day. Besides both guys fought in a time when not all fights were recorded. I have seen Bob Schrijber fight live on 3 occasions and only one of them is listed on Sherdog.
Don’t bother with logic when talking with a fucking clueless moron who goes on fight finder and thinks he knows everything.
