Flat-Footed vs Ball of the foot
I have a fight Apr 9th and I have a question. My opponent is more than likely a BJJ fighter considering the team he comes from (Evolution MMA). This is a HWT bout as well. He is a inch shorte than me (6'0) and is probably flat-footed as all HWT grapplers are. The one trait that I believe is gonna give me the advantage is Im a "light on my feet" TKD kickboxer. I wrestled all 4 years of high school, traveled to train with former olympian wrestlers (Baumganer, Gable, Brands Brothers, etc). I currently train with a former TKD olympic head coach (Myong Mayes).
My question is who do you guy believe has the advantage on the feet?
