Congratulations to my friend, team-mate, and former training partner Denis Kang who defeated dangerous striker Mark Weir at Pride Bushido last Sunday. The fight ended at 4:55 of the first round after Denis landed a devastating series of punches and knees.
Denis is now undefeated in 16 consequtive fights, and is 3 and 0 in Pride!
I really like Denis’s aggressive style, which seamlessly combines striking, wrestling and – of course – Brazilian jiu-jitsu. For me he epitomizes the modern MMA fighter; training and using different martial arts instead of being bound to any one discipline or any one range.
Denis’s DVD My Mixed Martial Arts covers many of the techniques and strategies he used against Weir and is available at the Grapplearts website.
