Watching a lot of MMA and MT, I've noticed a lot of fighters do not fight with their hands up. Blame it on fatigue or whatever, why do they do this? Is it because they are lazy? A lot of my instructors are always telling me to "bring my hands up" and etc. Here is a fight where they drop their hands and it's the first round: http://s44.yousendit.com/d.aspx?id=3CN9HZOHG2GIV0ES66T6JT687O Also when watching people like Wand Silva and other strikers, they throw a lot of haymakers and punches that seem out of control. They also throw another punch before they even bring their last punch back to their face. Can anyone explain?
