My next fight is on the 18th and I need some advice

My next fight is Saturday the 18th and it could be interesting. She is experienced (11-5) and is a capoeira fighter with some BJJ skill as well. I haven't had a chance to watch any of her fights yet so I have no idea what to expect. I know very little about capoeira, other than there are a lot of flashy moves. Is there anything specific I should watch for?

I'm going to try to get her on the ground as fast as possible and hopefully end it.

In capoiera they use kicks, alot of kicks. SO make sure to watch out for the head kick and then another one right after. Also in capoeira its alot about making it look like a dance. So be careful of spinning moves, be sure to not get thrown off by her spinning.

All that said, capoiera doesnt really work well in the mma because it leaves you open to counters. So watch for the counter punches or just take her down. Just be sure to leave no arms or legs in anywhere so you dont get subbed.

One of the most skilled MMA fighters in capoeira is Anderson Silva. That being said watch it while the fight is on your feet. When you take it to the ground also watch he BJJ as well!

Yeah, I was thinking it doesn't seem like it would be very effective in mma against an experienced fighter. My concern is exactly what you mentioned... That I could get thrown off by some of the moves. I'm watching some videos of capoeira fights right now and its pretty crazy.

I've seen a few Anderson Silva fights but I don't remember seeing any capoeira. In fact I don't think I have ever seen it in an mma fight. And hopefully I'll never see it again after this fight. I prefer muay thai or bjj fighters, they're more predictable.

Yeah, I know what you are talking about. A BJJ fighter wants to pull guard and submit you. A muay thai fighter wants to stand and beat you down!

I definitely think you've got the right idea in taking it to the ground, which will confine her to more orthodox tools that you are used to. While I personally don't think that capoeira is a very effective striking art on its own, it's very unorthodox and you have to respct the unknown. While conventional striking tactics would win 9/10 times, you don't want to risk running into some crazy spinning headkick.

(like this one)



As for how to get her to the ground, I would suggest doing so from the clinch. Cut off the ring/cage, KEEP YOUR HANDS HIGH, crash into her, and the take her down. Smothering her from the get-go would probably be the safest route as you probably don't want to be at striking distance for too long, since she might have a really unconventional range with her attacks.

Shooting seems a bit risky too. With opponents who throw a lot of kicks, I'm usually reluctant to shoot unless I set it up well with strikes (though it'd be hard to do so in this case, since you'd be in range for her weird attacks.)I'd just be afraid that I'd accidentally shoot into a shinbone, which Ive had the 'pleasure' of doing more than once. I prefer to catch a kick and drag them down or to smother them and try for a takedown from the clinch.

Either way, keep your hands up at all costs! It's not likely that she'll flash KO you with a body shot, but some wild spin-kick to the dome might be a different story.

Good luck!

EDIT: I'm using the youtube brackets but its still not working. grrrr ;[

I would say either use the kicks to get it to the ground (if you haven't already done before then), or just smother her against the cage and clinch up...either way the other guys are bang on the money here.

Good luck babes may have my own fight in Feb. hope you have a good one

if she is good at capoeira then chances are see is very fast and moves alot on the feet with unorthodox strikes which can be hard to predict, I would recommend closing the distance assuming you feel you have a Mury Thai advantage and try using the clinch, but would defo try to see some of her fights first to see if you can see what she is like from the clinch in case she is strong there also.

Leg kicks can be very non-effective against such a style as capoeira she is likely to have the movement to step back and avoid them and work a counter, I would avoid using them and try to get in range for knees and elbows instead.
