So I'm around 5'10 and a half, I'm a short stocky guy and primarily I'm a general mma fighter, though I focus more on stand up, having gone to The Yard in Los Angeles for almost 8 years. (Not currently) So I fight with or spar with really tall guys due to my weight. I feel like I'm at a huge disadvantage physically. I know most likely I don't know how to use my tools effectively (how to infight). But I think naturally being taller is a blessing for a striker (obviously). Though I know some might disagree. When I spar or fight with guys my height or shorter. I land jabs at will, hard jabs. My lead hand becomes a weapon to fear with quick lead hooks to counter pretty much anything. My knees reach their target easier, same thing with kicks. It's just such a huge difference to be the taller guy as opposed to the shorter guy. As funny as it sounds, I've never learned to fight like a short guy. I fight like a tall guy vs a tall guy and obviously that's not going to go well for me. I've been studying guys like Zambidis and Gokhan Saki but even they seem to struggle with taller guys and they just win because they're that beast (and know infighting well) So, should I continue to fight in lightheavyweight and hope my infighting game develops to the point I can use it effectively against tall guys? Or should I go on a major diet and drop down to lightweight where I'll have a slight height advantage or at the very least equal where I really excel in? I'm trying to go pro so this is a serious question and feel free to ask anything you guys think will help you guys answer me if I haven't elaborated well.
