If he has no gorund game he would be destroyed, look at this video,

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NrZM6...eature=related

Thats why they don't do these spinning kicks in the UFC, because you either just step back and he has no chance of hitting you because you can see the first spin a mile away, or you shoot when he lands and drop him on his back, look how many oppurtunities this kick boxer has to take him down, and this is a poor quality tournament

Plus if you put your guard up these kicks are blocked and he falls on his back himself.

Thought this was going to be about the guy with no arms or legs.

this guy sucks...

he steps in the cage and he will just die.

with his stupid spinning kicks and then lands on his back, someone with a decent white belt can easily tap him out.

1. Close the Distance
2. Takedown
3. GNP or Submission

Nearly all of those moves were ridiculously low-efficiency moves.

There is a reason why Kung-Fu/TKD/Karate did terrible in the original UFCs, and why virtually no MMA fighter has these Martial Arts as their base.

Anybody else think Lashley will eventually be a good fighter? I really like this kid, and as he gains some more experience I think he'll be a beast. He's strong as an ox and obviously has skills as a wrestler.

Poor striker, no finishing ability. Doesn't stand a chance, unless the UFC want to really promote and throw him favorable match-ups.

BTW, I was talking to one of my companies I deal with who sponsor Anderson and Mir. A rep told me about a conversation he had with mir on Lesnar. When he was getting pounded by Lesnar he siad it wasn't as bad as people made it out to be. It just looked bad on camera. The way he defended himself is no different from how you'd defend yourself when your girl is beating you on the top of the head. He said that that was how much it hurt. This is how I relate it to Lashley.
Striking is an art that must be mastered and incorporated into your full game. Can't go by brutishness alone.
