I wrote it both ways and then thought “I think it’s pipe” and lived with the fallout.

When it should be "Dorticos shot his straight down the PIKE and Tabiti was asleep before he hit the floor."

Pike's the original term but language is constantly evolving, man, and it's sole purpose is the conveyance of meaning. For a metaphorical phrase like that as long as folk understand what's meant the precise phraseology is of less importance. Seems like 'pipe' has actually overtaken 'pike' as the more commonly used variant since about 2000 - and FWIW it's the one I'm familiar with - though I'm glad you brought that to my attention cos it had crossed my mind that 'straight down the pipe' was kinda nonsensical - I'd just never thought to follow it up.

Come to think about it though I reckon I prefer 'pike' and I'll probably use that from here in unless it becomes so unused that it stops being useful.

Sorry if I ruffled some feathers. But you're right... 'straight down the pipe' doesn't really make any sense. But hey, I'm used to outlandish language living in the good ole USA. Down here in the south, the bumpkins call a hose a 'hose pipe'. I tell 'em the pipe brings the water to the hose. Then the arrangement is over. They don't continue on from there as a hose-pipe. LOL

Never heard the term “hose-pipe.” “Straight down the pipe” always made sense to me because I envision a pipe being straight, and something going straight through it. Another idiom that’s consistently said improperly is “champing on the bit.” People almost always say, “chomping on the bit,” which is wrong.

The punch was so clean, and landed with so much apparent force. And Tabiti immediately goes limp. I’m sure it was a little scary on first witnessing it. Watching countless knockouts over the years, you come to expect the fighter to be okay. But every now and then, you hold your breath for a second. That Dorticos KO was one of those times.

Yes of course. But you have to rate them in the division they are. Not if they can jump to HW.
