Brandon Vera appeared on Sport Science, (which must have been filmed prior to his face-breaking loss to Jon Jones on March 21 since his mug looks pretty normal) to compare the muay thai kicks of Shogun to the karate kicks of Machida.
The episode is pretty interesting and the results of "The Truth’s" experiment of repeatedly kicking the head off of a crash test dummy revealed a few things.
1. Muay thai kicks are more powerful than karate kicks
2. Karate kicks are faster than muay thai kicks
3. I never want to be at the receiving end of a Vera kick — especially not one to my head or extremely handsome face.
