Ok, I was trying to figure how you would do it standing orthodox without fainting with the left before you throw the right hook. Makes more sense now.

Jab jab inside leg kick.

jab cross cut kick

cross - jab - fake cross switch left high kick (works ******* awsome) snap that kick and you'll finish it

jab - cross - left upper cut right hook

jab cross right thai kick

jab jab right cut kick, transition into a left body kick or knee. It works really good. depending on how close you get you could land the knee

(my fav) jab jab, with the second jab you really want to close the distance, grab the back of the neck and pull your opponent down into a thai clinch, this is where you will imedietly throw a right knee followed by left knee, then a right hook. God i wish i could show this one. try to picture it, throw the right knee then switch up and throw the left one, now your back in your stance and then throw the dirty boxing right hook or upper cut whichever you can land...then push your opponent away.

another one i do occasionally is jab , jab hook, right over hand hook. This isnt a deadly attack but works. if you connect with the over hand hard enough you could rock your opponent.

The key one I always do is: Jab, reverse punch, kick to the mid-section. I might occasionally try a feint, but I figure 2 punches is an already enough feint.

Other ones I enjoy:

step forward front kick, step forward front kick, then crescent kick (the opponent may figure out the pattern so the crescent kick is more of the "hidden kick")

feint punch, takedown (kind of like how Matt Hughes used to do)

Something I found out works really well (forget who was doing it) but I saw someone in the UFC throwing their lead hand kind of above their head and its a really bad distraction to some people. Feint like that and a step-in hook will do the trick for me if they bite on it. I was sparring with a friend tonight and did it to him a few times.

Also on the suggestion of Feints, I realllly like feigning a front/T kick and high kicking instead. Especially if you used the front kick a little in the fight.

Forgot to add one of my favorites

Double jab, cross, slip (if needed? acts as a fairly effective feint), right elbow. Leaves for good dirty boxing or MT clinch also
