Legendary Roufus Brothers: "The Fight That Changed History" and "Low-Kick Finale"

Hello again BE community! Been about half a year since I posted here. In this time, I've learned a little bit about video-editing and how to piece it together for better edutainment.

Muay Thai vs. Kickboxing Breakdown: "The Fight That Changed History"

If you have trouble accessing the video, follow this link.

"The Fight That Changed History" is one of the most legendary stylistic match-ups in Kickboxing vs. Muay Thai. Muay Thai Pros wrote an article about the fight, and it inspired this break down. Both men demonstrated tremendous heart. It was beautiful in so many ways, particularly because of how much influence it had on the Roufus brothers. Watch to the end and you'll find a surprising speech from a familiar face in MMA... which leads to the next breakdown.

Duke Roufus Breakdown: The Low-Kick Finale

If you have trouble accessing the video, follow this link.

A lot of viewers were quite... disrespectful towards Duke. Many seemed to have missed the point, didn't read the text commentary in the end, or don't know/care who he is. I don't usually moderate comments, but there's about 100~ derogatory comments withheld from the previous video. I know that some of these people probably also took it to Twitter, and that was definitely not the intended effect.

So, I attempted a special breakdown of Duke -- making sure that I get the message across. 20 years after his famous low-kick speech, he made a comeback to face the Brazilian K-1 Champion... specializing in low-kicks! It was beautiful and a pleasure to break down. Also felt great to be appreciated by one of my heroes
