It's a lot more natural to fight when rock than it is to play rugby while rocked. You have to think that the savage part of you can take over in the fight and it's going to help you survive, it's not going to help you score.
You really do just go to a kind of auto-pilot mode. You will do things and not even know it, eg. Clinching, taking him down, and protecting while trying to recover.
