Lets talk Strategy!
 
ok, lets say your in an MMA fight tomorrow (UFC rules)

What is ur opening strategy? ie. wat are you gonna do (or try to do)
do you jab and shoot the legs, try and clinch or what?

depends on the fighter....

I say stay and throw some punches and thai kicks....then shoot with a take down, work some strikes on the ground....until you see him make a mistake and give you a sub attempt.

This is an impossible question to answer. It depends on your opponent and any number of other variables.

If I'm fighting a standup fighter with fast hands and sloppy legs, I'l throw a leg kick and shoot.

If I'm fighting a standup fighter with fantastic headkicks and knees, I'll throw a few punches at him before going into a judo clinch and tossing him on the mat.

If I'm fighting a standup fighter that loves to clinch, I'll throw a big headkick at the beginning to intimidate him and then shoot in and take hime down.

If' I'm fighting a grappler with good submissions, I'll stand and throw punches, mostly at his head, while I wait for him to try and take me down.

If I'm fighting a groundnpound grappler I'll throw a big combination at the beginning of the fight to let him know I mean business, then I'll judo clinch and try to get into side control or a mount, so I can smash his face.

Strategy depends so much on physical condition of both fighters, it depends on the intelligence of your opponent and his likelyhood to do something crazy. There are too many little things to try and account for.

Chuck Liddel, like him or not is an awsome fighter. And he said in an interview before the 2nd fight with renalto, that he does'nt change his game for anyone. And their still trying to figure out ways to beat him. Well, that being said, I'm not chuck Liddel, but I do somewhat agree with that statement. No, I wont always strike, or always wrestle. But I make my assesment in the fight, and go from there. I just like that spontaneous,"oh, this could be a bad idea feeling". Some say I'm a free spirit........some say an idiot. All sounds the same to me.:cheeky4:

depends on who I am fighting, definatly.
But I will stand up at first, and get a feel for his pace.

I like to feel out the opponent first.
It's like your a fat kid craving a delicious cake that is infront of you. Your excited, want to hurry, but are you sure its not poisonous?

I generally like to keep it on the feet.

If the opponent doesn't make a move after a few jabs,I just pretty much start smashing in combos every now and then.
If they'd shoot, i'd sprawl and transist to the side to make sure they cant grab a leg.
If they back up into the ropes, just clinch for a bit and send a few knees to open him up, then send more fists until I finally break through and connect.

And yes...Im talking about my first and only fight back in July:laugh:

I really had no other game plan...ITS AMATEURS! GET OFF MY BACK!

Chuck watches hours of tape on his opponents before they fights. His initial strategy (being to get the KO) doesn't change, but he watches closely to see what his opponents tendencies are and what mistakes they will make.

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.

I agree with Ironman all the way along with the fact of being able to go the distance full speed ahead mentally and physically.
