The best advice I can give is to not over commit right out of the gate. Stick to one or two straight punches and keep a low base and prepare to sprawl. If you feel your back is getting close to the cage make sure to circle out towards the center so you can't get pinned. Just pick him off and angle when he shoots, eventually you'll catch him in a bad position and be able to capitalize on his mistakes. Good luck!
