I heard of Vick from Kwonkicker on Youtube.Check out the list Kwonkicker has of amazing taekwondoin who were outstanding in kickboxing by merging the two disciplines (like I've been doing for decades). Gonna have to start sharing thee ole archival footage of me and my students sparring competing working security at various venues and other street stuff...
I loved Trimble back in the day. The guy had an ego that made Mayweather's look like a shrinking voilet, but he was exciting to watch! He's mellowed with age. Flashy fighters seem to be folks that people either love or hate boring, is one thing they rarely are.
You know, the "full contact" ruleset gets too much heat.
I didn't used to like it, but lately I've come to appreciate different rulesets more and more, no longer thinking of one as being better than another, but rather them just being different.
Some of the stuff that both those guys do in those vids wouldn't be realistic under, say, muay Thai rules, but it's so awesome that I feel like there NEEDS to be a ruleset where we can see such beauty. Personally, I wish full contact rules would make a comeback.
