A friendly MMA match..

My friend and I were planning a friendly MMA Match sometime soon..but he was saying he would beat me and everything..

I told him I know good grappling, striking, and I am good in the clinch. He said he would still win.

His style:

-Efficient Kickboxing
-Brawler type
-Non-shifty footwork
-Powerful punches and likes to improvise on kicks
-Enjoys a good fight once in a while

My style:

-Technical
-Very shifty, speedy and I try to be as evasive as possible
-Counterstriking- I always let my opponent come to me
-Very fast punching and efficient power and coordination
-Doesn't like to fight
-Currently studying Jiu Jitsu and Wrestling

Any recommendations on how I can beat him?

I am going to be the first one to respond, and I think what I say at the beginning will be echoed by others. If this is taking place in a back yard, I do not recommend doing this at all but if you must use headgear, bigger gloves, etc. These sorts of sparring matches should take place at a gym where trained professionals are around. Safety always comes first in MMA, it should be no different in a "friendly match". The last thing you want is for someone to get knocked unconscious, a broken limb and/or permanent damage. Rolling with friends is one thing, but doing a full MMA fight is another.

With that being said, assuming you will be taking all safety precautions, I will go forward with my advice. From what you are describing your friend is a move-forward, throwing lots of punches type fighter. It also sounds like he will be looking more to street fight than competitive fight. With that being said, these fighters typically rush and leave themselves open for counter strikes when facing a guy who can move well and has good footwork. If I were you, I would use one-two type punches and get in and out. If he starts following you in a rush, shoot for a takedown and use what you have been studying in both wrestling and subs. You didn't say how his ground game was, but judging from what you did say, that might be the best place for you to have this fight. As with most fights, you want him to get sucked into where you are comfortable. Do not let him suck you into where he is comfortable. Brawlers want brawls, not technical fights.

ditto everything xbroken said, especially the part about not having it in your backyard. Sounds like you still want this guy as your friend. Offer to put on a show for a gym if they'll ref the fight. Another idea is to sign up at a local amature fight circuit.

Get the fight on the ground. My thoughts...
