My fight June 1st

I have a fight June 1st mma rules in a ring and its at 185. My opponent is a really good boxer and boxed in the military. Im a good striker but he is way better. I have better kicks and ground game. Does anyone have any gameplan stratagies to stay out of his striking game so i can take this fight my way.

I am a boxer. I am actually a HW, but because Ive trained in boxing I know what kind of problems Ill have in a MMA.

Against myself, I would say throw kicks, use the clinch. If you cant shoot to take him down use the cage, How to avoid my powerful strikes you want to close the gap clinch me and put me against the fence. Use sweeps and put me on the ground.

Because I am so one dimensional if I cant out strike the person im fighting, I dont have a good chance at winning.

Your going to want to take him down as soon as possible and keep the fight there.

Keep the distance and throw lots of leg kicks, and then set up the takedown with strikes. If he's a boxer he's going to be uncomfortable on his back so it's probably wise to put him there

my friends a boxer and whenever we spar i'll wait for him to throw the jab then follow his arm in his my own jab then clinch him and attempt a wukkadb said set the take down up off of strikes....throw a couple combos, if he backs up or covers up, explode in for the shoot

start off and feel him out, get some leg kicks in clinch against the cage then take him down.
