So the main standup techniques used in MMA are Muay Thai Dutch Kickboxing Boxing Few fighters using Tae Kwon Do and Capoeira I was wondering if people could discuss about what techniques are seemed not as much applicable in MMA. I am sure some purists will come in and defend/argue specific techniques. This can be a good place to discuss those. For example, in boxing you see a lot of "pot shots" and dipping the head really low. This would not be as applicable in MMA because the ref doesnt break up a clinch right away and if your head is too low, you can get kicked/kneed in the head. I dont see a lot of Thai Clinch in MMA either (but there are few instances like Anderson Silva/Rich Franklin, Jose Aldo uses a form of thai clinch to defend takedowns, Matt Brown has used styles of the clinch in close range). Let me know what you guys think. Similar post in the grappling section also for wrestling, bjj, etc.
