Demian Maia.

Most fighters have some weakness they'll discover over time. My weakness is take-downs. Just doesn't come naturally.

What I've been told is to picture how awkward it is kicking with your left leg at first, and that's how it is with every strike for some that aren't naturally good at striking.

edit: wow I got neg repped for this post. What?!
