The best fighters on the face of the earth enter into the cage confident of their ability to break the will of their opponent. Then something funny happens. They get a shin bone crashing into their jaw. Game over.
Just as NBA stars get "in the zone," a striker must learn how to make the zone his home. He must see everything in "bullet-time" and allow his body to react off instincts.
Striking is an art not of just technique and timing, but also of intense physical and mental conditioning that takes years to congeal. You may not be as awesome a striker as you think you are when your bones break under the force exerted from your own muscles.
These are the best strikers in the world of mixed martial arts today.
