Of course you see the eye poke, but that's not what this piece is about. It's about the punch you see Al-Turk winding up to throw, only for Mirko to see coming a mile away...duck and counter with a straight left. Now I know that Al-Turk is primarily a grappler, but it looked like he was throwing a Steven Seagal ridge-hand instead of a punch. I just don't understand why fighters feel like they need to wind up like that, especially when you are a heavyweight. You lose power by winding up like that, lose your center of gravity, and leave yourself wide open for a counter or take down. Also, did't we learn in grade school that the quickest way from point A to point B is a straight line? So why do a ton of MMA fighters do exactly what Al-Turk did in the clip?
