    is it possible that matt brown doesn't take body shots well because of damage incurred to his liver when he was an addict? also heavy drinkers could suffer similarly.

    I thinks it got more to do with the trained killers striking him in the body.

    could be. i'm not aware of any studies in the liver's ability to get hit after experiencing cirrhosis.

    could also be that he's skinny and doesn't have massive muscles surrounding his core like some other welterweights do.

    i was referring to the way many people consider him to be vulnerable to body shots.

    Hmm I don't know but he struggled with that early in the E Silva fight. I'd imagine it hurts to get hit that hard in the body no matter your past.

    No, it does not work that way. I have abused my liver to a greater extent than most of the earth's population and I eat body shots for breakfast.

    I bet I could take one better than Matt Brown. I won the Friday night body shot contest at the local bar three times last year.

    Brown was also dropped by a body shot by Mein.

    He does seem more susceptible to being hurt by body shots, but as someone else just said, he only fights tough ass dudes (mostly strikers), so of course those guys know what they're doing.

    Maybe.
    But then you have other skinny WW like Condit and Diaz who are like Terminators and just don't go away no matter where and how hard you hit them.

    i know an alcoholic that was nearly killed from a punch in the body, ruptured his already fucked liver, that and the liver swell from excess toxicity. drive your fingers under the right side of your rib cage. it definitely hurts more if you have been drinking a lot recently.

    Body shot contest?

    I want to believe this entire post was a well crafted joke but it's been so long since I frequented bars regularly that it wouldn't surprise me if this was an actual thing now.

    there are a heap of boxers and kickboxers that have the same build but don't experience the same vulnerabilities. go back to body building.

    what lift or exercise do you do with weights to increase stomach muscles? your mind seems to be getting weak, maybe you should hit them weights.

    He walks right into punches to the body, which plays a factor likely, but I wouldn't be surprised if future studies showed that cirrosis and shit make livers really touchy.
