    People often say how much the jab is underutilezed in mma and that is true, still gsp vs koscheck is the only fight i remember which was won eith a jab, help me remiember some others sherdog cause i don't

    Edit: it doesn't need to be a jab knockout, just fights were the jab was very important

    WRONG.

    That was won by a headkick that shattered the Killa gorillas arm.

    Probably the best examples are GSP vs Koscheck, Rory vs Ellenberger, Mousasi vs Latifi. Hell that last one was close to 100% jabs. The jab was also pivotal in Stipe vs Hunt.

    How do you know the jab would have been important if his arm wasn't broken ?

    You don't. He was like 60% in there. Fight could have gone differently without the injury
