    I feel like nowadays we’re letting people run away a lot more without consequence.

    Hit him while he’s running!!

    Stipe tried to attack here, but Overeem ducked that shit like he had eyes in the back of his head.

    Exactly, if you give them too much space you never know what kind of crazy strike they could come up with. [​IMG]

    Attacking someone that is being unpredictable is highly dangerous in a sport with devastating consequences.

    Notice how everyone that does it here is throwing caution to the wind, are wide open to counter from a position they aren't familiar with and they have to get almost on top of them to throw to land successfully as they move away. So many things can go wrong.

    This is like playing Russian roulette when you are already about to win without chambering a bullet.

    Stipe showed some toughness there too. He got hit flush by a big dude. He fell but stayed conscious. Overeem would've been napping if he took the same punch. Shame that was the closest Overeem came to Ufc gold.

    I think Nick Diaz threw a kick like that to Paul Daley or Scott Smith in Strikeforce.
    I have to rewatch those fights again.

    Diaz is one of the best at pulling off that move.
