Yea, Rothwell has the type of style where this can backfire. Reem doesn't seem to have great fight IQ at all(showed good patience and composure in his last fight), but maybe training with Greg Jackson will change that
All I know is that when people use the Homer Simpson strategy on you, and have success, there's a problem there
