that shouldnt be surprising, the thai style has arguably been the most effective

his style makes it look archaic

yes he is...they need to understand that unpredictability is better than any skillset, reason why jon jones, anderson, machida, etc are/were so successful

true, but a lot of the next generation fighters are starting to change the game. i think anderson can be credited with the start of the evolution of stand up in MMA.

what are we talking about here?

 

jon jones pretty much has the thai base with "unpredictability"

 

as did anderson

 

we all saw shogun take out machida with that thai base

 

jose aldo has it

 

dj has it

 

anothony pettis has it

 

its just that they also have "unpreditability" too

post #4539 of 41029

Either Cerrone's finishes this fight quick or Alvarez takes a decision imo

 

WAR COWBOY!!

anthony pettis does not use a thai style. his stance, like mcgregor, has that TMA influence. they're starting to use a hybrid TMA/boxing stance now.

 

out of all those guys, jose aldo definitely has the most cookie cutter thai boxing style.

i think ur misunderstanding what im saying....Firstly anthony pettis comes from a tkd background, thats how he fights.

 

Ppl like Jones used his wrestling for his first how many fights to win. Aldo and Anderson use muay thai but they do not use the traditional thai stance and footwork, it has to be diff for mma

 

But traditionally thai base is very light on the front foot, but it doesn't translate to mma cuz they  are easily taken down. Im not sure what McGregor was exactly trying to say but i took it as he's saying they do basic footwork, they aren't light on their feet moving around.

its not just the way you distribute weight, but the way you stand, the way your upper body is positioned, etc.

 

 

thai boxers use a upright, squared up stance. the new age strikers are using a hybrid boxing/TMA style.

not in mma they don't, takedowns all day, that's why u see fighters who come from mt, either get taken down at will or adapt it to an mma base

post #4550 of 41029

pettis trains with duke roufus, to call his fighting style TKD is crazy

 

its like saying gsp's fighting style is karate, it became thai under phil nurse

yes they do

 

the reason they use a thai stance in the first place is because it allows you to stop take downs. your hips are directly under you which allows you to sprawl. if you use a pure boxing stance your lead leg is not only vulnerable to single legs and hard to sprawl, but its also exposed to kicks. this is EXACTLY why the diaz brothers have so many problems with kicks and takedowns.

so just cuz they train in one aspect makes them that??? go ask gsp what his style is, he'll tell u shotokan karate all day

 

same with pettis

 

but they need to learn muay thai, wrestling, boxing to be good and well rounded in mma

post #4553 of 41029

GSP isnt shotokan...

 

 

he trained kyokushin karate is whole life before MMA.

post #4554 of 41029

yes kyukoshin im sorry had a few 

 

and he himself has said that his karate is what made him a great wrestler, cuz of his ability to close distance 

post #4555 of 41029

the style they take up eventually becomes thai, its just evolution

 

gsp in his finisher prime was definitely a thai style, i think of hughes gsp 3 when i think of this

 

in no way did it resemble karate

post #4556 of 41029

yeah, everyone ends up in a thai stance because its the most effective to throw kicks, check kicks, stop take down and shoot for them as well.

 

 

 

but the game is slooooowly changing. that TMA influence started with anderson.

u mean 2 and no he's nowhere a thai style, he would not be able to stuff or even attempt a decent takedown based of a "thai style"

 

thai style don't mean he's throwing kicks, knees...the context we all were talking about it was footwork/movement

thai stye is the worst to stop a takedown, u need to be knees bent, weight on back foot, not squared up 

post #4559 of 41029

nobody in mma has a traditional thai style, its just an mma mix on thai

 

thiago alves doesnt have a traditional thai style but thats how i would refer to it

 

as for the fight, i thought eddie was gonna kil him in the clinch, like literally

Have you ever wrestled? 

 

 

The first day they teach you to evenly distributed your weight and square your hips with your opponent. this is why it blends well with the thai stance.

 

youre talking to someone who been in MMA for 10 years+.
