Not really about anything in particular just a cool fight video with lots of random clips in there. Some of these slams had me cringing. Looked like it would have snapped the guys neck like a twig.

One of the things it seems to me some martial arts appear to overlook is how powerful a good throw can be. Those guys are being really, really nice compared to what is possible. It's very possible to lock someone up and drive their head in the ground at full speed with your bodyweight behind it.

Barry,

most Org's have rules against "spiking" i.e the act on intentionally landing an opponent on the top of there head!!! It cuts down on the risk to the fighters, and is of an advantage to the org's in that some of there best fighters don't get badly injured.

The Randleman/Fedor slam at the end of the clip is great... and to think that Fedor went on to win that fight.
