Before he was scoring UFC 75 in favor of Michael Bisping and proclaiming leg-kicks don’t finish fights after UFC 104, Cecil Peoples was the go-to guy in Asian cinema whenever Jim Kelly was doing more important things like — maintaining his Afro. Cecil is actually a well-respected martial-artist who received his black-belt in Karate under Master Ryusaki in North Hollywood. In fact, no one has really questioned Cecil People’s ‘martial-arts cred’ but it seems that everyone has something to say about the his judging — and his theory on leg kicks.
After Cecil ruled in favor of Machida at UFC 104 and suddenly proclaimed ‘leg kicks don’t win fights’, he then told everyone that they can ‘go to hell’ if they don’t agree with him. Cecil Peoples wanted you to go to hell. Not the fun hell with the unlimited supply of Twizzlers, juice boxes and shiatsu massages. Cecil Peoples wanted you to go to the hell that has Mariusz Pudzianowski guarding its gates. The hell where you find out you will never seen another episode of America’s Next Top Model or eat another Sonic Chili Cheese Dog ever again. That’s the type of hell Cecil Peoples wanted to send everyone to if you didn’t agree with his judging of Lyoto Machida vs. Shogun Rua, and it’s the worst type of hell.
MiddeEasy reader Tony Davis sent us a video of his bout last weekend in which he actually employed a technique of using leg kicks to win fights. Wow, imagine that Cecil? Check it out below.
