    Good setups/combos:

    *From outside punching range, throw 2 seperate 1-2's at their guard with a lot of power. Make them fear those punches. The 3rd time, throw the jab normally, but FAKE the cross as you move into range. While they are covering, expecting that hard cross, pick your shot.


    *Lead stuttered mid-kick to spinning backfist with rear hand. Catches a lot of people.

    *fake jab to lead hook (1-3). Very effective when your opponent is reaching out to pat or parry your jabs.

    *throw very hard 1-2's at opponents guard, keep doing it until they respect your power, and cover to defend. Next time you throw the 1-2, throw a wide and *visible* looping left (of any kind, the strike isn't important so much as them seeing the movement as a left hook). As you throw the left, quickly slip to the right. This should put you to the right side of your opponent with a clear shot at their temple and ear, while they are covering and expecting the left.

    I prefer combos that involve changing levels b/c it provides some protection against takedowns and secondly is harder to defend:

    1-head, 2-body, 3-head

    1-body, 2-head is my favorite (also used with fake 1 to the head, then 1-body, 2-head).

    Its a great power setup as the 2 is launched while coming up from somewhat of a crouch and their hands are normally down as a result of the 1-body. I recall seeing Mike Tyson use this one as well in watching some highlight videos of him recently.

    I may sound full of crap, but a straight right, straight left and a spinning (clockwise) right elbow works good for me, if I see him back up a little too far, the elbow will be a back fist.

    for the southpaws:
    1, 2 , left round
    1,1(jab as your circling out),left leg kick
    right leg kick , 2 , 3
    1,3,2 ( find it hard for the orthodox to defend against this)
    1, 2 to the body ,3
    2 body, 3, leg kick
    I love throwing the cross to the body. I find it fairly easy to hurt somebody if not get them to worry about their solar plexus while setting up any shots to the head.
    After a bit of throwing kicks to the thigh I'll switch it up to their calves/side of their shins to try to get them to think about the pain they'll feel each time they make an attempt to check my kicks. I'll also be looking for the possibility of a sweep at this point

    Well if they're hyped up enough in a fight it's possible that they may not notice it right away, I wouldn't know though in a match because I've yet to fight in the ring.If they don't notice the pain that your dishing out at all then they will eventually notice their foot dragging on the ground (literally) from all the trauma your putting on those muscles around their shin.Whether they feel the pain or not, their legs WILL BE WEAKER eventually enough to get them to the point where they 1-notice they can't kick or check kicks as well 2- and/or get them to start thinking about their legs and so having their mind on their legs they may pick up that that shit hurts! Either way shit will be setup. They will make mistakes and all that is left is for them to be capitalised on.

    I'm sure everybody knows that feeling where after they took a couple thigh kicks and step they feel that "heavyness". That weakness in your thigh that makes you say "whoa" or "there it is" in your head. Some people may have their nerves killed off or what not, I don't know what it is exactly, but we can only operate like machines to a certain extent. The pain will be noticed and/or the weakness in those muscles will be.

    I got dropped sparring last week because of thigh kicks. They completely suck. If you get stunned with a head shot or body shot, you can usually recover, but the stiffness and pain in your leg takes days to recover from.
