With four words in the above video, Melvin Manhoef explains why he's such a popular K-1 and MMA fighter -- and why he's also a fairly limited fighter who wins plenty of fights by exciting knockout but also loses plenty of fights to more tactical opponents.

The four words: "F**k the game plan."

Off topic, however maybe its just me but Michael Schiavello annoys me as a broadcaster, his one liners get to be a bit old during the fights.

But with that Bonjasky dec.

I disagree I like Schiavello some of the one liners are lame but he is very knowledgeable especially with the striking.

I think goldie and the voice would be funny as hell together but rogan and the voice would be a great team

I think Melvin is a great K-1 fighter and he has had great success in MMA and he always puts on exciting fights, for example Melvin vs Evangelista Santos was crazy but the one problem i have with Melvin is he needs to improve his ground game because lately 2 of his loses came because he didn't have the best ground skills. If it doesn't always work out for him in MMA he could always go back to K-1. Id watch him every time there.

well saying F**k the game plan is easy to say cause everyone knows he just wants to sand and any crazy enough to do so will be sleeping soon just ask one of the most granite chin in the game, Mark Hunt. unless ur stand is equally K-1 level than dont get caught

Michael Schiavello is one of my favorite MMA announcers, especially when somebody gets rocked, he yells " The Big Caboss! " lol
