” I see an early finish” were the words that Kit Cope used in response to his fight with Kenny Florian this weekend. Cope who has multiple Muay Thai titles feels very confident in his standup skills.
Cope isn’t too impressed on the other hand with the opponents Florian has faced. “They just weren’t the stand-up guy that I am.”
Florian has been able to finish many of his opponents with wicked elbows. Cope is aware of those elbows and also talks about whether winning a fight by cutting an opponent with elbows should be allowed in the game saying, “I think the stop on a cut is a legitimate stoppage. I think it’s a good way to end a fight.”
Kip is always outspoken and had plenty more to say as the video interview and exclusive video of Kit Cope training up at Big Bear for this fight up now at MMAWeekly TV.
