Most of us expect a lot of action whenever we watch the UFC or smaller shows like Bellator. Part of us like the technical stuff to some extent but a jab clinic or to much time along the fence can be a bit boring at some point. Most usually like it when both fighters are trading in the pocket. In fact, some fighters are great brawlers, one of the best these days has to be Matt Brown. Note: by brawler, I don't mean that the guy can't do anything else like BJJ, wrestling. I am talking about a guys who like to slug it out almost like a hockey fight. The stand and bang approach. Is this worth it? Though fighters who like the "brawling mode" bring a lot of excitement, is this really worth it for them mid to long term (career longevity- chance at the belt?) Many who brawl take a fair amount of shots in return. As GSP mentioned a while back, trading in the pocket is like flipping a coin. It seems also that many of those guys are neglecting other aspect of the game like their ground game, wrestling, etc.) Though there are exceptions with Sam Stout for example who improved his wrestling and takes guys down here and there. Even a guy like Hendricks who seem to like brawling went back to wrestling fairly quickly once Condit started to get his striking game going. This was a smart choice as straight trading with a pumped up Condit could have been problematic for him. Are their any guys out there that you see other than Matt Brown that seem to rely mostly on brawling and that have a got shot at a title in their next few fights?
