Kinesthetic awareness was a very good point. I noticed in this fight, and you can see it with Alpha Males striking since getting Ludwig, is their sense of distance management has greatly improved. Some people argue with me when I say I think footwork is the most important skill in striking, but you see it in all of the champs. One of the newest, and I think he'll be champ one day, is Connor Mcgregor. His sense of distance is excellent.

Cool breakdown. The only way any of that happens is when a person is extremely proficient at the techniques. Condit is a phenominal striker which is why he is so fluid and can make decisions without thinking. Same thing when a top level grappler gets in his groove on the ground. Fighting literally becomes second nature. Although I truly believe we are built for hand to hand combat and it's a matter of unlocking that level of conciousness or unconciousness depending on how you look at it.  Id venture to guess that a mixed martial artist that reaches that level is the closest thing to a super human there is.

I only met Mike once.I was commentating Pat Cote's last fight pre returning to the UFC, and Goldberg was there.Mike and Pat are good friends and their wives are like best friends. UFC was off so Mike came to watch and have some beers and cheer for Pat.Gave Ramdeen and I some good advice on doing the call. SUPER cool dude!
