    What does Yodwicha have to do with anything? We aren't talking about pure striking we are talking about MMA to which Buakaw has zero experience fighting in. Tony doesn't need to be a better pure striker to create problems for Buakaw in an MMA match, and once it hits the mat it's over. Buakaw doesn't take guys out quickly, and Tony has an incredible chin and is bigger.

    Current Bukaw with basic TDD would be epic as fuck.

    But bukaw is a low weight midget compared to ferg and size matters.

    Hop off overoids dick for a second guy.Bigiboy has only started taking MMA serious since 2017. He defended the himself long enough on the ground to get the ko.The stoppage was justified if Jairzinho decided to followup with 2 or three more punches to the head overeem would have been dead

    You do realize the guys like Tony Johnson were mma wrestlers and not even kickboxers when super kombat brought them in. It is the same story for a lot of the other guys sk would bring in were not full time kickboxers and were just mma fighters with limited kb experience. Super Kombat had to keep importing mma fighters excuse decently skilled heavier weight kickboxers were not fighting for the $5k US Dollars Super Kombat was paying for opponents of their top fighters

    I'm glad this thread was revived with such an intelligent post.

    I think you missed the context. I have nothing against Rozenstruik, however the narrative being created was that he was a garbage Kickboxer in SuperKombat that went into the UFC and dominated the sport. That argument was only being made to prop up the Romanian organization.

    BTW, how would he have landed extra shots when the round was over and Reem was popping up to his feet?

    He had at about 5 seconds left in the fight thats more than enough time time to finish of an a opponent that was dropped and stunned Overeem was only able to get back to his feet because jairzhino didn't just on him after dropping him.The ref called the fight because Overeem was stumbling when he got up.

    Which MT fighters didn't transition well to MMA?

    The only few I have in mind like Valentina Shevchenko and Joanna Jedrzejczyk became champs. Just saying.

    Can we also finally ban this troll please?
