    So is the explosive wild man fighter the evolution of mma? Can it be a championship style? Conor was a lot more like this at first but then quit a lot of the spinning shit when he made it to the top do you think that's what these guys will do too?

    and where is Pereira? Last fought in April on a card with RDA and Ladd and they both just fought he had a 1st round ko you'd think the ufc would've rebooked him by now

    It’s called a mixed flow state where the space-time continuum is pierced momentarily by harmonic rhythm

    You answered your own question. Its a much better idea to play it safe once you're making big money. Its all about keeping the ball in the air, Jones is a good example of playing it safe.

    Sucks for just bleed fans though.

    You shouldn’t really categorize zabit with those guys he’s quite technically solid

    He just likes throwing some spinning shit sometimes and has gone away from it more and more he’s taken a step up in competition

    Pereira Is sort of a freak show fighter — Don’t see him going anymore but can stick around provide some exciting fights in the cung le , Chris lytle type way — oddly enough that seems to be his goal as well

    How many wild champions do we have? A wild fighter will lose to a calm and collected, disciplined fighter (most of teh time)

    It results in great KO highlights and a bunch of losses.

    Unorthodox can get you a belt. Wild probably can't, but it can get you a better payday in the short run.
