In 9 UFC fights, Alan Jouban has been the aggressor 8 times, often taking shots just so that he can land his own. Regardless of the opponent, he's always in their face and pushes the pace with punches, kicks and knees. And while entertaining, his wild attack does leave him open for counter attacks, which is why Albert Tumenov managed to destroy him with ease. By watching his fights, you'd guess that he's the kinda guy that would never back off a fire fight, that he would even try to make the fight be decided in the pocket, swinging for the fences until either he or his opponent falls, and you'd be right, for the most part, you see, there is one man who not even an aggressive muay thai stylist like Jouban wants to trade with. A man who put fear into Jouban's heart, and made him be constantly on the backfoot. A man who turned the ever aggressive Jouban into a passive point fighter. A man who has a black belt with dem handz. A man who is known as Platinum Mike Perry. Alan didn't want nothing to do with Mike's punches, he didn't want to spend any time on the pocket at all, and for a good reason, in his 9 prior fights, Mike's opponents had all met the same fate, a KO loss in their record. Jouban knew that if he employed the same tactics that he used in any of his other fights, he would have ended up unsconcious and twitching on the canvas. It was just inevitable, so he decided to do the only thing that would get him the win, and that was to turn into a point fighter. Gone was the Jouban who broke his opponents with constant strikes, who backed them up against the cage and unloaded, in his place was instead a dancer, who did everything in his power to ensure that Platinum didn't get anywhere close to him. People seem to think that because of this, Perry was exposed, but in reality, he was just surprised by the fact that he had managed to shook Jouban so bad that he changed his whole game for one fight. He didn't have any way of preparing for that kind of fight since Jouban was always trading with his opponents, he had never showed those kind of skills. That just served as a learning experience though, since Mike will now be prepared for whenever his opponent becomes a Marathon runner, and will know how to deal with that. This saturday, he's going to face someone who will most likely be willing to stand and trade with him, which means that he's going to get another KO win on his record. Jake Ellenberger will become his latest victim, so be sure to watch how the Platinum one dismantles him.
