Fail of the Year Candidate #2: Another Dipshit Dares His Opponent to Test His Chin With Predictable Results


(Mad props to CP reader Dave W for the find. The logic-defying test of strength comes at the 4:27 mark, if you’re into that sort of thing.)

At this point, we’ve done all we can do to spare fighters the embarrassment of testing their unbreakable chins during a fight, only to receive a lesson in humility shortly thereafter. We’ve put out a PSA, we’ve relentlessly ridiculed those dumb enough to attempt the maneuver, and we’ve even bestowed one of these jackasses with the MMA Fail of the Year Award, the best worst CP honor of them all. But like Flickr’s obsession with bloody nipples, it appears that fighters daring their opponents to knock them out is a trend that is here to stay.

Today’s exercise in stupidity comes to us from a supposed “Shaolin Kung Fu Master” named Yi Long — we say “supposed” because one would think that a Shaolin Master would be a little more versed in the art of modesty –┬áduring a December 2012 fight with 10-2 Muay Thai wrecking machine Josh Pickthall. Not only does the fight feature some of the most blatant nuthugging from a ringside announcer that we have ever heard (not that we know what they’re saying, but scroll through the Youtube comments to clarify this), but it also features a falling tree KO so glorious that it seems to come right out of a Looney Tunes episode.

Perhaps what’s most perplexing about Long’s decision to expose himself to three straight punches (which, to his credit, he seems to hold up for two of) is the fact that the fight was relatively competitive until the last few seconds. If you’re Anderson Silva fighting Stephan Bonnar, sure, go ahead and get cocky. If you’re some dipshit who fancies himself the next Anderson Silva, however, maybe it’s best to hold off on the dropping of the hands. For your own sake.

How can anyone think that guy is doing ANY Shoalin KF? He doesn't move laterally or change levels or do any Shoalin tricks or strikes. His style is so obviously KB that anyone who buys this gimmick can't possibly know much about KF or KB. I'm not saying he doesn't/hasn't trained Shoalin - maybe that's how he can take so much damage (the guys who really dedicate themselves to it do things that I consider to be just this side of superhuman) - his fighting style is just KB, tho. When Anderson was against the cage, he flowed with Bonnar's punches. He didn't just stand there waiting to get chin-checked.

That yi long dude was an apprentice monk that went kickboxing, the shaolin community sees him as showboating pile of yakcrap. He does seem to have the ability to take insane amount of punishment, since he does this every fight and i havent seen him go down often.

Look for the Dim Mak from Cecil Peoples at 3:46. Thats why Yi Long froze up. Delayed effect and that shit.

This yi long guy is a go to for those living in kung fu fantasy land on youtube. Ever question the legitamacy of kung fu demos on youtube and you'll be referred to his fights. He was dropping his hands on purpose, amsterdam, he wasn't out on his feet. He's got a habit of doing showboating like that. He's not really a shaolon monk, he's a kickboxer they just market as a kung fu monk.

I dont think Liu Kang was being cocky there at all. Pickthall connected witha right hook immediately after that right kick and stunned the shit out of the little fella, KTFO righ there, only he didnt fall an had to be putout of his misery.

Just not seeing the cockiness and that american announcer either didnt see things properly or was talking out of his ass.
