    He is a great striker, but has been KO'd himself by a relatively unknown Japanese fighter in K1.

    He really doesn't seem to have evolved. He doesn't need to have great groundwork, even some takedown defence would be great.

    Makes me wonder how seriously he is taking his MMA? As far as I'm aware he trains in a (top) K1 gym in Amsterdam, great for K1, not as good for MMA!

    Manhoef vs cyborg is one of the most epic mma fights/brawl you will ever see. Agreed if i had his natural striking ability just lock youself away at a good ground camp and away you go but i think hes too old to challeneg the light heavies or even the middleweights in the current UFC crop

    Yeah, aint seen all his fights but I believe this is how all his losses have happened, I guess if he wanted to improve for MMA he would have done it by now.

    im sure they teach bjj at mikes, but i cant read the site to figure it out. paul daley often goes there to work his striking.

    he has a slight ground game but really should of got out of that armbar, he was pretty much out but put himself back in.

    sick hands, but jesus christ he was just lazy on the ground..filho mounted him with ease, and he left his arm out for submission with no effort need from filho.. poor technique but yeh his hands look v good!!
    wat does he fight at, weightwise?

    185lbs and 205lbs but the guys got serious knockout power for anyone, knocked Mark Hunt who weighed 250lbs at the time.

    He's not too old in my opinion. If he lives clean, trains hard and avoids too many wars he could be around for a long time still.

    Manhoef is a scary beast,totally agree with you Rasputin that you gotta see him vs Cyborg Santos in Cage Rage, one of my favourite fights!!
