  1. Great interview! Love the champ!
    I think she is the best champion/ambassador for the UFC and MMA in general–tough, hard working, confident and yet realistically humble at the same time.
    Funny that you channel her for your tennis matches and that you'd bring out your pooch at the end — always down to earth and keepin' it real!
    (btw, the hat looks good!)

  2. I HATE hipster type hats but when Kayrn wears them I'm ok with it. It really works for her. I swear she coordinated the lipstick to the hat too. Also this was a great interview with one of my most favorite fighters. Thank You KB and MMA H.E.A.T.

    • MrDylanHole “Being a big man really doesn’t matter,” said Tyson. “It has no significance in knocking out some one. The main point is the quickness with which you throw the punches, and the leverage which you have in the shoulder snap.

      “The object of really knocking out another individual is throwing a punch where he can’t see. And then there’s combination punches. When you throw punches, you keep his mind preoccupied with the body punches, and the other two punches that come to the head are the knockout punches.

      “And then again, there’s one-punch knockouts, in which they throw one punch to the body, and then the other punch to the head. Again, the opponent’s mind is so preoccupied with one punch, which rattles him just a little bit, and then that’s when the other punch comes in.

    • Yes, power (mass x velocity) and precision of the strike but size also is also a factor in the durability of the fighter being struck. A stronger, heavier jaw will provide more resistance, therefore being less likely to be knocked out. It's ironic that Tyson says size doesn't matter consider how big he was and how effective he was at knocking people out. What Tyson alludes to in your quote is strategy in attaining a clean punch, he already has the size and speed – he spent hours training to achieve that. He's focusing on the nuances of his sport disregarding the basic principles of physics.
