You know, there are obviously guys who really doesn't check the lower kicks, whether it's low kicks or calf kicks or whatever. I mean we see plenty of fights where low kicks made a big difference, most recently Conor-Poirier 2 fight. The most recent hype train that UFC is pushing really hard got derailed by Chito Vera by calf kicks too. Cejudo lit up Cruz with low kicks before finishing him. Anthony Smith recently derailed Crute with low kick that made his leg go rubbery and do wierd shit. But what I really don't understand is that why so many MMA fighters are so bad at defending BODY kicks. By the nature of MMA and their stance, I get that lots of fighters don't lift their leg up to check leg kicks. I mean, I get that. But why are so many fighters so bad that defending body kicks? I mean, most recently Allen tored up Soriano with body kicks. I'm sure some may say Soriano ain't elite MMA fighter, but he's pretty good and he was clueless about how to defend body kicks. I mean, look at what Reyes did against Jan. I mean, he got lit up. I just don't understand, even though they have kickboxing and muay thai coaches, why so many elite MMA fighters at the highest level of competition, can be so terrible at defending body kicks. So sherbros, why are so many ELITE MMA fighters so bad at defending bodykicks?
