Anyone else been playing around with overhand hooks? i've recently really started focussing my standup to develop a lot more punching angles... Overhand hooks are so very dificult to defend, and don't have to be thrown looping and telegraphed like Chuck's he landed on Overeem (though we can see even still how effective that one was), so I've been working on both the power right hand overhand hook, but also the leading overhand hook, which is a nice chopping punch that cuts through a bad defense of the face and confounds a basic jab block/hook block. Nice combos I came across: straight left jab, overhand right hook, left hook to the liver, right kick to the leg. reminiscant of Ernesto Hoost. overhand leading left hook, right straight cross to the body, left uppercut/ Knee to the head. the same angle can be applied to elbows. Watch Rammon Dekker's highlight video where he's fighting in a thai MT match, and brings an overhand right elbow straight through a guys defense and plows his face.... Nasty. The best thing about overhand hooks being that they come down on the oponent, and have a higher chance of scoring a down.
