    how good is it, i know he has done alot of non mma competition; so how good is it regarding def,off, counters, variety of strikes, technique and strategy, figured i would ask the experts.

    Well, he got KO'd by Nate Quarry, who isn't exactly a great striker. I think that answers the question.

    just curious cus he has a good record in us and world wide shidokan; which are fairly high levels of striking at least w/in the martial arts world.

    an he has shown a pretty good array of strikes, punches, elbows, kicks, etc.

    an guys like liddel/shamrock have brought him in to prepare for diff styles of strikers; even the guys in aka, so i figured he had some legit skills.

    being koed by a bigger guy isn't necessarily a shame, he is a)past his prime and b)might have a questionable chin

    he's pretty old now. physically and in fight years.

    I think he was a decent striker back in his prime.

    Quarry looked like a goddamn giant against Shonie.

    Huge mismatch in general and Quarry does punch really hard.

    Shonie looked like he was stoned when he came out to fight Quarry

    Well Crocop was KOed by Randleman. I don't think that means all that much.

    I saw him fight live at a couple of Shidokan events. He showed a lot of variety in his offense against his opponents, all of who were larger than him, but he really shone when it hit the ground.
