Take a Break From the Markets and Enjoy Some Footage of MMA’s Potentially Next Big Thing at 135/145

Currencies are swinging with volatility. The S&P 500 continues to confound with its flat run for the year. Commodities are blowing apart everybody’s theory on hard asset alternative investments. So what to do? Have a short look at Boston Salmon

With a name like Boston Salmon, he’s just gotta be star. Right? If you’re a fight fan, then keep an eye on this young Hawaiian. He hasn’t been called up to the UFC yet as he’s still paying his dues in RFA, which is one of the minor-league feeders up to the main event. Their promotions usually air on AXS, which is generally offered as part of a basic package by local cable or satellite providers. It won’t be long before Dana comes’a calling for Mr. Salmon, though.

This youngster possesses super-crisp boxing, like many of the Hawaiian mixed martial artists. Shoots! But Salmon has extreme KO power to go with the boxing skills. He’s already one of the best combo throwers I’ve seen in a long time, but again, that’s not against the world’s best fighters yet. He’s also very skilled at takedown defense and the times I’ve witnessed a shot work on him, he just gets right back up ala The Iceman in his prime.

What really makes me love Boston Salmon’s skills though is his deadly-accurate, ultra-fast kick to the liver. Boston is a southpaw so he doesn’t have to utilize a switch before throwing it with power. The southpaw stance also allows him to whip the kick with more speed into the unsuspecting opponent’s liver. It easy to tell that this kid has practiced this kick tens of thousands of time in his life. It’s the best I’ve ever seen and I’ve been watching MMA fighting since it was only accessible on VHS back in 1995. Trust me when I tell you, I’ve seen my fair share of devastating liver kicks. Salmon uses his to perfection.

Against fellow stand-up bangers, he’ll soften them up with the left kick to the body and then it’s only a matter of time before the final outcome. What he’ll have to watch out for is when he’s up against the world-class ground guys who are superb at countering kicks with a shot or catch. It’ll be interesting to observe Boston Salmon’s progression. Impressive, athletic bangers aren’t always guaranteed stars. See Uriah Hall.
