UFC Rotterdam is right around the corner, and Heavy Hands is
back to discuss all of the best fights. By which we mean Antonio
Silva vs Stefan Struve, Nikita Krylov vs Francimar Barroso, and . .
. okay, okay. Just kidding.
We're actually talking about Alistair Overeem vs Andrei
Arlovski, Kyoji Horiguchi vs Neil Seery, and (our personal
favorite) Albert Tumenov vs Gunnar Nelson. Hard hitters abound, and
we're keen to break 'em all down.
Then it's on to a topic suggested by a generous and enigmatic
man known only as "Ricky," who asked us to discuss "slick"
fighters. This is a term well-known in the boxing world, and we get
into the nitty-gritty of the term's history, and the history of the
style it describes. We discuss the traits that make a fighter
"slick," and ponder which MMA fighters meet the criteria. We run
through our list of names and try to figure out whether slick
fighters are a product of the sport of boxing, or if MMA really is
down with the slickness. More in heavyhands.libsyn.com »
