    Not the most technical but he mixes it up everything very well and the volume is insane, he outstruck guys that on paper were better strikers then him like lawler and rda he's for real Screenshot_2019-12-02-10-26-15-1.png

    There is as much power behind his punches as a 5 year old with pillows in his hands.

    Has Colby ever dropped someone with a punch?

    Covington landed like 200 significant strikes and all Lawler's got is minor swelling. Thanks for validating my statement.

    He leaves a lot more facial damage than what I see in khabib fights.

    I thought I was the only one who saw through that fake volume throw and keep throwing so they don't throw back and take them down so I don't get hit.

    Just as boxing is a limited rules striking match, so are kickboxing and muay thai. Wrestling is a grappling art but it's a huge element of no holds barred striking too. You can suck ass at kickboxing, muay thai, karate, and boxing and still have amazing striking: see Colby.

    I mean look at Kevin Randleman. He had never heard of the term straight punch or kick in his entire life. Yet by faking a takedown he KOd fucking Cro Cop cold.

    When Colby moves forward, guys have to worry about not getting underhooked. They position themselves to avoid that, now they're eating straight shots. They position themselves to avoid Colby's shitty punching, they're getting wrestlefucked. Then they're getting dirty boxed up in the clinch. No matter what, they can't win. They basically have to flip a coin and hope they chose Colby's intentions right. The only way to stop it is to not let Colby have the initative; don't let him be the guy pressuring. Good luck doing that against his wrestling and his cardio..

    Fucking Chael Sonnen dropped Anderson with this kind of shit with some of the shittiest punches I've ever seen.

    His striking isn't polished but he hits hard and often. He's a master at taking advantage of the grappling advantage to throw strikes.

    All the fancy footwork, distance, angles, slips and feints don't work if they other guy takes you down as soon as you let your guard down. And so Colby leaves with the choice of defending the takedown or striking, you can't do both.

    As much as I hate his act, I have to respect the guy as a fighter. It takes balls to use that style against the monsters he's faced.
