How do you try to win a fight?

This applies to anyone who fight in the ring or even just likes to fight in the streets. But typically how do u try to win a fight if you don't know anything about the other persons style.

Typically i like to stay to outside at first at cuz im short. I like to try to land leg and body kicks and then when the time is right I move in to short range and fire straights and uppercuts. Hopefully I'll get the take down i try to get a submission from the top. If I can't get the take down Ill stay standing as long as its going my way. And if all else fail you can always pull guard standing and try somthing off my back.

But then again you never know quite what your going to do till your in there

people say either the world will end at 2012 or the aliens will finnally come back to us.....


i hope not cuz im writing a sci fi novel

I study the opponent, defend his strengths, and exploit his weaknesses.

I never become dependent on my opponent being a specific style of fighter. Admittedly, it's nice to know beforehand, but I've gone into fights not really knowing what my opponent was going to do.

Personally, I'm a ground and pound fighter. I like a quick takedown or flying submission to stun him and then a few strikes and a tight choke or joint lock to finish.

It's all about doing what you're comfortable with. If you want to feel your opponent out to get comfortable, that's fine, but it's not my personal gameplan.

well it should be noted that tactics vary from the ring to the street. there are lots of things you can do in the cage... but on the street you have one of two options:
throat chop.
cock punch.

thats how i roll. no ref, no honor. i'll hit you in the vitals and peace out.

There aren't any rules on the street. Only ever been in three myself, thankfully. One I got jumped by three guys. . . which basically sucked (broken nose and chipped teeth), but they all ended up running off when I didn't stop fighting, lol. Another I just kicked the guy in the head with back leg roundhouse, he fell down and I legged it. Last one the guy swang at me with a wild haymaker so I just stepped inside and smacked him in the side of neck/jaw with an elbow. Same result as above.

If there is no way of avoiding it, hit first, hit hard and then GTFO of there. Don't stand there admiring your handiwork.

In a street fight. No rules, no fairness, ill hit you in the throat, gouge your eyes or attack ur groin, and i wont walk away when your on the ground ill beat you some more, until im done then you can have whatever is still left of your body. Worse case scenario hes faster, stronger and more skilled. Ill attack the eyes, groin and throat, if that isnt enough ill use a weapon.

In an organized fight, I typically like to stand. Im 6'3" with 79" of reach and my experience in kick boxing i'd like to think i'd beat the shit out of most guys in a fight.

meh, i dont play with weapons in a street fight. if youre fist fighting and you pick up a weapon then things tend to escalate rather quickly. from the fights ive been in ive noticed that most people tend to abide by the rule that they wont use weapons unless the person they are fighting produces one. even then, thats not always the case. i had a guy pull a knife on me at a show one time and i immediately backed off... of course my friends and I jumped him after the show to get the point across.
but i dont pretend to be a badass... i've been beaten up plenty of times... usually because a 1 on 1 fight turned into a 1 on 5+ fight.
now that i've grown up a bit i've learned its best just to avoid those situations. very rarely are they worth it.

in a sanctioned, sporting fight... i love to either lead with the jab and look for the takedown or fake a leg kick and swing for the liver.
