My favorite type of game planning is a fighter preparing to keep the fight where they're most comfortable. A perfect example I think is JDS. His TDD is amazing, so he's able to keep the fight right where he wants it. You see him exercise more caution in the striking when he's against someone with a dangerous ground game: Gonzaga, Cain.
I think it's these simple styles that are the most exciting.
Totally agree, this is why ive became a fan of JDS
