    Seriously.

    It's like nobody in the UFC knows how to properly jab outside of the Diaz brothers (and Conor, who finally added it to his game after Diaz I).

    Because there is a common thought in mma that a jab doesn't work.

    To think that Diaz brothers and McGregor are the shining examples for jabs is just sad.

    Bas Rutten said jabs only work in the boxing ring, not in mma against wrestlers who can only throw overhand rights

    Jabs are situational in MMA.

    Orthodox stance -> throw lead jab -> keep right hand up for defense

    doesn't always work that great with small gloves.

    Didn't GSP jab the fuck out of Josh Koschek. I'm surprised Koschek didn't loose his eye

    Not as aesthetically pleasing as the spinning back wheel kick or atomic butt drop though, man.

    That was and is GSP's main weapon...that and he will wrestle fuck the shit out of you. How about learning how to check leg kicks? come on people. Sometimes you just want a guy to check at least one when they are getting fucked up by them.

    TS, so many fighters utilize the jab. I don't agree with your statement at all.
