I’ve already gone over bad punching technique by Jason Lambert. And as bad as I thought that was, Doug Marshall’s wide throwing, hands down, chin up display was even worse.
When you watch the end of that fight Marshall spends a lot of time standing in the same spot firing punches that I’m pretty sure couldn’t possibly be any wider (and width is generally the opposite of power in punching). What’s even worse is that the flurry is all noise and no substance. Of the fifteen punches he throws only one really lands. Stann is able to sit with his hands up, just waiting to throw a shorter, quicker punch at Doug’s exposed chin.
Gunfights aren’t always about who shoots the most bullets. They’re about who lands the one shot that counts.
Congrats to Brian Stann, the new WEC Light Heavyweight champion.
