I'd love to get the opinions from some people who train on this: what makes guys like Edgar so good at catching kicks and converting them into takedowns, whereas a lot of other fighters just eat leg kicks or try to check them, or at best try to counter them. Hell Edgar will even catch a leg kick, counter with a right hand and still convert it into a take down. Is it a matter of timing and reflexes and reading your opponents tells? or is it something more? I've just always wondered why more fighters don't seem to excel at it like Edgar does. I know Edgar still eats a lot of kicks, so I don't mean to hype him up, but in general he is good at converting them to takedowns, so I thought he was a good example to use. And yeah, I don't train. Fuck me right?
