Blindside said:Funny, I recall watching that fight (Hackney v Yarborough) and thinking "doesn't this guy know how to do anything other than club the guy with his forearm." I'm not sure that is the fight I would pick as an exemplar of "style and technique."
I was watching one of thsoe news magazine shows (could've been Dateline or not...) That featured an interview with Hackney on that fight. He basically said "Nothing I was doing was hurting him, so I started pounding on the base of his skull when he fell down."
Then the reporter played the clip in slow mo and said that hitting someone on the base of the skull likee that was a DEATH BLOW. Went from there to comments from Mcain on how evil the sport was...
