I do most of my damage from the thai clinch and dirty boxing position. Elbows are vicious, as is my right hand and my right knee, but if I'm fighting a taller guy I have to clinch, maybe throw one or two shots on him and then take him down.
That's really the key for me, I'm always looking for the takedown, always trying to set it up. I guesss one of the reasons why my takedowns get stuffed, even by good wrestlers, is because I throw a few shots at them first to give them something to think about.
thats the way to take ppl down...if u just shoot then is easy to defend it...
my takedowns are not the best....especially if Im not hitting u...my best takedown is a straight right hand....
