I’ve heard of many athlete’s taking up different types of conditioning regiments, and know that some turn to different types of fighter training to get their stamina up. Whether it’s boxing or martial arts keeping them agile and strong for the rigors of their sport they do what they need to stay at the top. I’ve never really seen it go the other way though. You don’t often get to see a well rounded martial arts guy playing non boxing/MMA sports. Anyways, whoever this guy above is, he took it to a new level with his nun chuck abilities. He shows us he can hit for power in the batting cages. I don’t think there’s a pitch that’s out of his zone with that kind of unorthodox swing. He’s got a different type of nun chuck when he feels like hitting the links. I wonder if he has a full set? Amazingly his swing still looks better Charles Barkley’s does! If he wants to pimp a chick, he can even impress the ladies with his badminton skills. If he was on your team for anything, you know he’d be able to help you celebrate in style opening champagne bottles for the team. He’s the full package in a multi-sport athlete. If West Eastern State can find the Ivan Brothers then why not look for some talented young kid in some crazy martial arts community in Asia!

I’m not sure why I’ve never seen this. It’s kinda old, but I would actually watch this show if I could find it on TV or even knew what channel sponsors Ripe TV. There’s no doubt that this is somewhat MMA inspired. Maybe one day ESPN 8 (the ocho), will air all these classic fights. Why you’d want to sign up for this is beyond me. I guess I could see a lot of the meat heads that I come across daily doing it. If Hershel Walker isn’t successful in MMA, maybe he should try this out.
Aparantly there are three ways to win these matches;
1. Knock your opponent out.
2. Put your opponent’s hand on the mat.
3. Force your opponent into submission.
Fight doesn’t start till the 1:00 mark…
What the hell is it with boxers and the pre fight stare down, followed one of them going in for the kiss? Holy crap, if I got into a stare down with a dude in a pickup basketball game the last thing on my mind would be trying to kissing the guy! By the way, can we even say the dude threw a punch here? I’m going to call this a savage girly slap. Which might I add, if you can’t take, maybe you should be in a different line of work, you obviously weren’t ready to do real battle.
