WEC 43 Video Hype: Get to Know Yves Jabouin and Benson Henderson


(Props: YouTube.com/wec)

Judging from the utter lack of promotion they’ve done for Cerrone vs. Henderson, it seems like the WEC is already treating this show as a tax write-off. And that’s unfortunate, because Sunday’s event has more than its share of potential barn-burners. Donald "Cowboy" Cerrone and Benson Henderson meet in the main event to determine the league’s interim lightweight champion, while top featherweights Rafael Assuncao and Wagnney Fabiano and undefeated lightweight Dave Jansen will also be in action. The above promo clip introduces us to Yves Jabouin, a 14-4 striker who trains with Georges St. Pierre at Tri Star gym in Montreal; he’ll be facing Assuncao on WEC 43′s main card. According to GSP, Jabouin is incredibly fast, and will bring things that MMA fans have never seen before. After the jump, Ben Henderson takes us around his gym and gets savagely armbarred by a four-year-old.

Every time I see a pre-K do an arm bar or choke hold, it reminds me there are all kinds of douchebags whove never done martial arts and who think its cool to show stupid tricks.
You can teach a kid ANYTHING so doing specific moves is no different than learning to do a duck dance.

But any martial artist with an ounce of common sense and experience (or even just frequented a dojo) will try to hold off showing these moves before the child has previous training and experience.

Then again, many MMA fighters have McDojo experience at best
and having your pre-K show a dangerous move is as fun for trailer trash as having him shoot a rifle or bungee jump.

Too bad "A Day in the Life of Ben Henderson" didn't involve him getting a hair cut.

I would take the 4 year old over Hong Man Choi.

There's a 50/50 chance DREAM matches either Sakuraba or Hong Man Choi against that four year old on the NYE show.
