Appreciate the responses
Depends on your skill set and your opponents.
If you are a boxer and got fast takedowns you can always go for the takedown get a few hits and stand back up. You will have your opponent thinking takedowns. then you can fake a takedown and come in with a punch or W/E. If your opponent gives you problems striking take him down, if he's a JJ specialist keep teh fight on the feet.
