watch total elimination 2004, heath herring knocked out that japanese guy with hammers, final conflict 2005, shogun knocked out arona with hammers, but after a grazed stomp. but still finished with hammers. hammers are effective in mma. it's way better than poking someones eye (liddle) :grinsmile26:
