Dana Whites FrankenFighter
Frank Mir's BJJ huh.
Yup. Dana used the amount of knockdowns Thiago has had to support that claim, but some of those have came from knees. Thiago's kicks are definitely better than his hands, and are definitely better than GSP's kicks.
I can get the frank mir jitz comment a bit. The guy doesnt often lose a limb he's gotten ahold of.
my own personal frankenfighter though..
-maia for his jitz. its like watching a guy struggle in quicksand when he gets moving.
-chin or roy nelson. duh. no brainer here.
-anderson's punching. a backstepping jab to end a guy like forrest speaks for itself.
-leg kicks of thiago alves. no comment necessary
-knees of aldo. that turn around knee on mendes was awe inspiring.
-chael's wrestling. yes there are better wrestlers, but I think chael has the best double leg right now
- wandy's attitude. just seems to me that wandy loves everything about the fight game.
i would have to go with-
• The Jiu-jitsu of Demian Mia.
• The wrestling of Josh Barnett- i know its not an obvious choice but he uses it well to get to his submissions/gnp
• The chin of Big Nog (back in the day)
• The kicks of Jose Aldo.
• The punches of Fedor
• The heart of Frankie Edgar.
• The mental fortitude of Fedor.
• The strategy ability of Randy Couture.
• The knees of Overeem.
• The elbows of Jon Jones.
The physical frame and athleticism of Jon Jones
The skin of BJ Penn
The chin of Nick Diaz
The takedowns and submission defense of Georges St. Pierre
The submissions of Roger Gracie
The punching power of Dan Henderson
The head movement and general striking defense of Anderson Silva
The Muy Thai of Mauricio Shogun
The counter striking of Chuck Liddell
The kicks and knees of Jose Aldo
The transitions of Fedor Emelianenko
The heart of Frankie Edgar
The explosiveness and endurance of Clay Guida
The ability to strategize of Randy Couture
The affability of Pat Barry
The interviews of Josh Barnett
The entrances of Genki Sudo
Did Dana made that opinion after 35 hours without any sleep or what?
"The kicks of GSP"....just priceless
the politics of Melvin Costa
but I wussed out.
But really, Penn doesn't get cut.
