Hearing "can" used is how you know someone has been watching MMA for six months.
Hey @gono btw, i know this fight is "out of your time", but u should cover koji oishi vs nick diaz.
Oishi's behavior was probably one of the most weirdest ive ever saw in a fight
Not only that but, considering the topic, oishi seemed to be a can on those early years. He debuted at the ufc with a full set of wrestling gear... It was hilarous haha. He made a good career for himself though.
Gono is timeless tho...
A can is jason reinhardt. No skill, padded the fuck out of his record and got smoked with ease in his 2 only meaningful fights
In pride guys werent considered cans by japanese audience. They cared only that you fought hard and didnt give up easy. The gameness is all that mattered. Records and shit matter to the us because of boxing culture,and i suppose america in general.
lolz @ someone immediately defining can as giblert yvel.
i'm sure i've seen cannier, but https://www.sherdog.com/fighter/Hiromitsu-Kanehara-1441 always stands out as the ubercan in my mind.
matter of perspective...
His losses (in his physical prime): @ OW !
Antonio Rodrigo Nogueira
Undersized duded losin´to these killers... expected.
Alexandre Ferreira Cacareco
Watch his fight vs Hughes in Rings, one of the few times he was not undersized...
Ya might change your opinion, who knows...
Some of the pro-wrestlers from Takada dojo were untrained back then, which you usually can't say to the same extent today, say with some of MM's opponents who are generally seen as the weakest competition a UFC champ has fought in the modern era. A lot of them were tough and some had fairly good grappling, but they otherwise lacked and were used as cannon fodder to top fighters with also the hope of a hometown upset. A win-win. I do agree with Magomedov though. And Yvel wasn't a can.
Yuhi Sano was a can for instance...Clueless on the ground against a much smaller Hoyler...
Toyonoga, Hamanaka, Satake were limted too..
Nishijima was a boxer.
Oyama, Matsui e Yamamoto were so-so...
Shoji proved he was legit though.
They also had to create a market and give a chance to local fighters, like all Org.
Otherwise, the Org. would have folded after 1-2 years.
