In a real fight, I tend to go out with southpaw stance. Once they get used to it I do a switchstep low kick and continue in standard stance. It's important to develop both stances, incase you face a lefty you might find a lot of your normal combos disrupted.
Well not every street fighter is a bad fighter. I've seen trained fighters get beat, because they couldnt expect the unexpected outside the cage. Like pretending you got knocked out if against a boxer, then bam take him down when he comes to do his last shots of will lol. Fighting is a mind game, I think maybe if you get your opponent use to your pattern of stance, suddenly change it at the right time.
