You'll have to put the pressure with feints rather than play defense cuz he's going to come at you.
This is SUCH a hard balance to play. Its hard to sell the feints and commit enough on the true attacks you make to keep the guy reacting to your feints....yet still not over commit and get taken down.
We'll see if I can pull that off (for the first time) tomorrow.
I've been taken down in nearly every MMA fight I've been in. Maybe this Saturday I'll break that streak! (probably not though)
