Name Kenny Florian’s elbows

First off, I’d like to preface this post by saying I’m generally a Kenny Florian fan. He smashed Alvin Robinson good and while his win against Thomas was a bit fishy, he really got in Din’s face after Din tried to showboat off him. But one thing I’m not a big fan of is how he’s proud of finishing fights by cuts.

Kenny’s got perhaps the most lethal elbows in MMA … he’ll fuck your face up good if you give him more than 4 inches of momentum on the ground. Now I don’t have a problem with elbows as a weapon … they’re just as legitimate as kicks and punches and shouldn’t be removed because they sometimes cause cut stoppages. My issue is when a fighter actively tries to finish a fight by cutting the other guy. To me that’s about as glorious a way to win as trying to get kicked in the nuts to force a DQ.

A cut stoppage isn’t a ‘real’ win like a knockout or submission. With those finishes, you stopped the other guy. With a cut, it’s the doctors that stop the other guy. While that might earn you a win on paper, it doesn’t prove jack shit as far as I’m concerned.

With that in mind, check this out: Kenny wants people to name his ‘signature move’ elbows. Here’s my suggestions.

  • The Cheap Win
  • Plan B
  • The Escape Route
  • That thing I do when the other guy is better than me and I can’t win any other way

    He can name the right one “Slicey” and the left one “Cutter”.
    Or it could be the “Dr. 90210″

    Ted:

    I wasn’t sure if anyone would know the reference.

    It was the pork chop and the biscuit cutter, but for some reason I can’t remember the guys name. Black dude with a fucked haircut, from Georgia.

    The best thing about the toughman show was Lawrence Taylor.

  • http://www.myspace.com/96273771 Tommy

    I gave him ‘king cut’ and ‘razor elblow’

  • islandguy

    As in ..
    Joe Rogan: That was a hell of a Flo Job Kenny just gave him Mike.
    Mike Goldberg: Sure was Joe. Let’s see what Randy thinks. Randy “The Natural” Couture. What do you think of that Flo Job that Kenny just applied.
    Randy Couture: Well Mike. No one give Flo Job like Kenny. He had a hell of a game plan. Just walked right in there and gave him a Flo Job. And he got the results. I think things came out just the way Ken planned.
    Joe: Well you heard it from Randy “The Natural” Couture.
