I don't know how many people watched tuf, or took the time to really break down or analyze any of the fighters approach. Throughout my time watching it i noticed rashad evan's and his standup approach/style; now i am aware he is very gifted athletically, quick footed/fisted and very mobile. An while i am sure this helped him alot; i still feel his style of standup helped him succeed much moreso than his athleticism. From my point of view rashad is an safety first counter puncher who uses alot of movement and angles; in almost every fight i think his opp had better tech standup skills and more rounded striking skills... Yet in every fight no opp was able to eff impose his will/approach or skills on rashad; an the thing i think impacted that was his his movement/mobility/timing an the angles he presented to his opp. I see that a large group of mma fighters and martial artist in general have a problem w/ movement; in that they don't know how to close the dist, set up strikes or cut off a ring or cage.. Which often results in them chasing an opp and getting potshotted. My question is this how is it that such well trained opp don't have any ability to fully round out their skills to deal w/that style, it seems that if someone is backing up..moving in and out or giving u diff angles or looks; alot of skilled strikers can't adust. It's a situation where the guy is unable to actively or eff use his skills unless the opp chooses to engage their opp on their own terms.. do u guys have issues w/this type of striking or do u understand why and how it works; i do it personally and i still find it odd how people who have seemingly competent to greeat off skills, are turned into opp who chase throw sloippy flurries or throw one strike at a time brawlers.. an when i watched tuf it seemed like alot of people had no appreciate for what reashad was doing to his opp which was in effect shutting them down, handcuffing them to the point where most of them were turned into heavy bags w/targets on them. Some people call it clowning, i call it def manuevers.. what do u guys think do guys not just dev their overall standup skills or is it the frustration of not being able to hit someone as much as u would like to so frustrating that it turns a usually skilled guy into a one dimensional brawler.
