In Lyoto's 34th pro mma fight yes. Karate is definitely a great base for martial arts competition in general though looking at Lyoto, MVP and Wonderboy, plus many other fighters have a background in karate like Nick Diaz, Tenshin, Angela and Christian Lee etc.

Mvp and wonderboy are kickboxers. Lyoto is the only one with a total old school shotokan backround and by the time he hit his stride in mma he was more mma fighter than karate guy.

Did Chael have any kicks is his striking arsenal? I remember he had reasonable Boxing and obviously great wrestling, just can’t recall him kicking much.

He didn't say point fighters doesn't transition over to MMA...he is saying if all you do is point fighting it is not "truly" considered fighting.

MVP and Wonderboy obviously are fighters because they have tested themselves in true combat. Not combat with a specific rule set.

He could be trolling here, though. He's trolled in instructional videos before.

And of course UFC 148 was the rematch versus Anderson in which Chael's attempt at a spin move went very badly for him.

That video is actually a good example of how delusional the public is about Bruce Lee.

It is so obviously fake and impossible, yet thousands of people shared it and praised it as if it were real. I know legit MMA guys who I thought it was real.

WonderBoy literally owns and operates a Karate school - but ok...

"You have guys like Steven Seagal who know nothing about fighting. Nothing. Zero."

Wonderboy comes from a Karate background before kickboxing and mma.

I remember drinking the Karate Kool Aid as a kid in the 80s. Some people really believed that "one punch one kill" stuff.

A lot of people still do. Bullshit karate schools still outnumber MMA schools by a large margin.
