I have the DVD and can vouch for oboffill. He has a running commentary in every match explaining where exactly he was in his career in terms of knowledge of the game. First few matches, no ground game at all. Then there is a marked improvement match by match in every facet of the ground game.
Last few matches he’s tapping people out left and right.
And to whomever dissed Pancrase, they were at one point the premier organization in the world, and not full of tomato cans like the UFC (except for the gracies of course).
And to whomever dissed shamrock, please remember that 12,13,14 yrs ago, young roided-up Shamrock was beating just about everyone. Don’t judge him based on his present ability.
And Bas is in excellent shape. I went to his seminar 2 yrs ago, and he was showing us the heavy bag. He was throwing a combo of 3 punches plus a knee in less than a second with scary power.
Seminar was only OK btw. Didn’t really learn much. I hear there’s better ones, especially the guy who was the ground coach in TUF season 2, I forgot his name, the soft-spoken bald guy.
What about a Shamrock v Bas rematch?
That would be something I would actually look forward to.
I love Bas as much as the next guy, but I think people are letting his likeable personality cross over into rating his ability. He was a good fighter, but calling him the best striker ever? Don’t make me laugh. He made his name in a league with open palm strikes.
He looked sharp smashing a can, no big deal. I’ll wait to see where he goes from here before I give him more cred.
You’ve never seen his MMA Career DVD have you?
The guy is as sharp a striker as I’ve seen. Up there with Fedor and Wanderlei.
Wow, someone actually backing me up for once. Sonny, you are obviously a brilliant man. I commend you.
I hope Bas is going to keep fighting now that MMA has blown up.
