...is Henry's speed and technical development. Karate Henry or Henry 2.0 (however you want) is one of the most underrated creatures in MMA, IMO. First of all, we all know TJ Dillashaw is a switch-hitter who likes to shift his attacks in all directions. He changes levels of his attacks and he also strikes in the line or around. He fights mainly from wide stance or a crouch, which gives him multi-directional mobility. In this fight, at the very beginning he was trying to leg kick Henry, but the problem was, Henry was moving slightly in and out. This gave Henry space to pressure him and back him up on the cage where TJ's complex movement is more limited to lateral. Henry threw a fast round kick (head kick) in order to limit TJ's movement even more and it was so fast it actually landed on TJ. TJ failed to land an overhand (similar punch that knocked Barao down in the first fight). TJ throws a jab from orthodox stance and then dips in and charges that overhand. Henry had a complete control in the centerline with his karate stance, easily blocked it and pushed TJ away. Henry also partially landed that head kick again while TJ was getting up. Notice that both kicks are thrown when TJ was in southpaw. That limits TJ's movement only to the opposite side of a kick. Basically, Henry had 3 out of 4 main directions in his control. out (backward) in (forward) to his right (when TJ was standing lefty) TJ had only one way to exit and that was on Henry's left side, where ultimately, TJ got intercepted by Henry's diagonal right cross. Henry wanted TJ to exit right so he can get that angle and he knew it is the only direction where TJ can move. This is high level technical stuff from Henry. They we're prepared for these dips and movements. Two takeaways: Henry's in and out movement (karate style) Henry's usage of head kicks in a major role Both fighters are outstanding. I'm fan of their craft. UFC bless.
