    That said curling needs legkicks for sure
    They didn't seem to affect Hominick or Edgar very much.

    Pettis has very good anticipation and is good at creating angles. He's just a smart fighter in general, and that added with his quickness, he's a dangerous fight for anyone. I'll also take his cardio and ground game over Aldo's. This fight is 50/50 for me.

    Im a big Aldo fan, and dont particularly like Pettis, but this fight has me nervous... Pettis has the skill to deal with Aldo standing, and even threaten to finish him... He is training with Roufus, who is a kickboxing legend... He knows his stuff... but has really turned his attention to MMA, and knows how to best kickboxing into MMA.

    Aldo better bring in all the big-time striking trainers for this fight, because you know that Duke and his team are picking apart Aldo footage, looking to expose him and put him away.



    good interview

    If Golf had leg kicks, I may actually start watching it.

    Aldo's leg kicks are nasty but with that said If i remember correctly they didnt really affect Hominick that much (who has years of kickboxing under his belt). I can see where Roufus is coming from saying they could not affect Pettis who i am sure has been around leg kicks for much of his life.

    Wont know until the first one is thrown though

    Been a funny thread to read but just a few leg kicks get through could yield positive results for Aldo.

    they are all sports which have aspects utilized in mma . he was saying blocking leg kicks is more obvious and utilized in sports outside of mma . To be SPECIFIC k-1 , muay thai , etc. And he is correct. I f for example a caoch had said hip tosses are not utilized nearly as much in mma as other sports then my judo reference would apply. My statement was mainly for the wiseguys posting above . we all know Duke roufus isn't stupid enough to think theree are legkicks in footbal. Just facestomps
