This weekend proved that all you have to do is take away the gloves and a mediocre mma fighter can beat a pro boxer via standup. This was always the case. Another example is Overreem who is the k1 champion. He came in the Ufc and his striking was exposed. Boxers are like fencers while mma fighters are people with real swords. What base had the most success overall? Sambo. Fedor ruler a divison for 10 years with that base. Now khabib is carrying the torch. The us can honestly learn a thing or two from applying sambo in their training regiments. Too bad you have to travel to a shitty country like russia to get real experience. Aka with daniel cormier and cain was nothing until khabib and his homies came into the gym and carinated those one dimensional wrestlers with knowledge.
