I don't understand why fighters share video of beating up training partners. Isn't training a sort of private thing?

What would happen if a training partner released video of them doing this to a better known fighter? As a martial artist, I find this a bit disrespectful.

he wasn't beating him up.

Kick was nice, came out of nowhere

he got kicked in the head earlier in the sparring

i don't think it reflects badly on his partner

Kicked in the head? Maybe if they were point fighting.

Uriah's partner pulled the kick, instead of landing it flush like Uriah did with the back kick. Again, I don't care to critique the entire video, but they were going like 30% before Uriah dropped his partner.

Also, check the video title. It's not "Uriah and x training together", but rather "Uriah Hall knocks down sparring partner with a spinning back kick." That says everything.

also, on TUF, we know that Uriah got too heated in practice. King wouldn't roll with him after he got him with the armbar.

Why does he keep his hands down, he gets tagged in every exchange when he's the far superior striker Phone Post 3.0

its funny when you hear people saying over the mic his hands are down "just because he can" and a few secs later he almost gets head taken off with a clean kick to the face!

I enjoy watching the defense Uriah displays in this training session with his head movement

That's what I was thinking.  Straight showboating.

I don't think it's the fighters sharing these video, it says FightHubTV. I think FightHub showed up and just recorded the sparring session. There's plenty of good sparring session of top level fighters going at it, look up Chuteboxe.

It would be different if a fighter post the video himself of him beating up a training partner just to make himself look good. But this wasn't even a once sided ass whooping, the guys was doing good.

And yet, the UFC released video of this:

Rousey - Hall
 

Anyway I don't think it's disrespectful. It's not like Hall was picking on the dude. Plus any time you can potentially intimidate an upcoming opponent (Hall is fighting Nick Ring) is good. Also hyping someone as a guy who can regularly land spinkicks can help get sponsors.

Hmm, sparring while wearing a necklace ... not smart.

Nice spinning kick to the liver though.

Although you bring up a good point, I doubt he is recorded without his consent.

I'm also not sure why people think he was doing well, either. He landed one kick while Uriah had his hands completely down, after throwing a weak fadeway jab. The majority of the sparring shows Uriah doing his best Anderson Silva impressing, making his training partner miss nearly everything he threw. The end show his partner getting dropped. I wouldn't constitute that as "doing good."

His sparring partner was pulling all his punches and kicks. Probably going 50% at most. Have to take that into consideration.
