As the title implies, does it? Rarely have I seen grapplers throw powerful and efficient strikes from close range when clinched or on the ground. It may seem like they do, but uppon further inspection it looks like they use their wrestling to hold someone in a position where blocking ground and pound is difficult, they tend to finish the fight towards a TKO with volume instead of a few well placed powerful strikes, which leads to wrestling/grappling heavy fighters end with many decisions. For instance, Mirko Crocop, Though not a grappler, he still uses quick explosive and striking technique to throw powerful blows from ground positions, whether top or bottom, or even when chest to chest from a clinch. I believe this is due to his high level striking background which has taught him to throw strikes without big wind ups, and from the clinch like any good striker can. I liken it to Bruce Lee's one inch punch (a silly yet fair comparison) where the striker can use his striking knowledge and lack of wind up and telegraph, to garner efficient power from even the smallest movements. Sometimes fighters do more damage from the bottom than the opponent can from the top. And most of these examples come from strikers vs grapplers. Mousasi vs King Mo comes to mind. This isn't a grappler vs striker who's better thread, just asking if you guys agree with my general assesment (that obviously doesn't apply to every fighter) that strikers can use their striking ability and body movement to get more out of their punches than grapplers can. I do also understand that many grapplers/wrestlers don't want to wind up big punches because it's easy to unbalance yourself and lose position. But I'm referring to equally small quick strikes. I think the striker generates more power with them and is more efficient with them. Thoughts?
