All that said, Chuck accredits his first win over Babalu to watching alot of tape and seeing Babalu's vulnerability to a kick. While the kick didn't look fatastic, it was something that he had been training for months to use on Sobral.

Strategy still means alot, even if you only intend to win a fight one way you need to be aware of your opponent. It's not just you in the ring, the other person matters too, and if you forget that then you definitely won't win.
