BE's striking specialist Connor Ruebusch analyzes the in-fighting method of Jon Jones--which bears an uncanny resemblance to those used by professional boxers a century ago. The tattoo on Jon Jones' chest reads, Phillippians 4:13: "I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me."

Robbie Lawler is an artist, his masterpieces painted in blood and broken bones. BE's striking specialist Connor Ruebusch breaks down his brutal, refined approach to fistfighting. As most fighters age, they become less active with their strikes, opting for efficiency and accuracy over aggression.
