I don't think you can learn instinct. He just needs to get over it and unleash. He seems to have the power when he's against a bag, but we see zero striking skill from him. If he wants to take a guy down he needs to let go, and what better time than while hovering over his opponent? He probably didn't want to stand and strike with a guy who has a 7.5 inch reach advantage on him, but he did nothing on the ground. At least pass guard. Jeez.
