Cool Pico Video

Recommended Posts

Interesting that he boxes from an orthodox stance.

 

Is Pico a natural leftie or rightie? His boxing stance implies he's a rightie. His wrestling stance implies he's a leftie.

 

I wonder if he's a rightie who taught himself to wrestle with a left lead leg so that his transition to MMA would not require a stance adjustment. Having the ability to box and wrestle your best with the same lead leg is a big advantage in MMA.

I used to box righty and wrestle lefty...... I just did what came natural. I write left, and throw right, shoot left, can switch hit, and so on. It is a version of being ambidextrous. It's may be like that.

Possible. But given how calculated his entire athletic career has been, I wonder if it was intentional. It is a lot easier to learn to wrestle leftie if you're a rightie than to box southpaw if you're a rightie.

True that. I used to watch him as a little kid but I am getting old and for the life of me can't remember which way he wrestled. Then again, back then he was a tough little kid, but just one of many, and not the world beater he is now, otherwise i would have paid better attention. ;-)
