Too often fans are so eager to point out the flaws and mistakes of high level coaches but we never really take the time to appreciate the beauty and craft of their work being shown in the proper fighters. Hooft seemed to turn his MMA striking coaching after being a pretty bad coach early on with bad corner work and people don't seem to mention him at all anymore. My favourite Coach: Rafael Cordeiro - his 2015 campaign with Werdum and RDA was insane. 2 fighters with average striking evolved to elite levels and adopted super effective high pressure kick heavy styles, their boxing defence never really matched their entire striking skill level but they were so effective in other areas that it wasn't such a glaring hole. They also adopted amazing thai clinches that were effective for MMA and where used to defensively slow down and opponent or brutalizes a opponent. Guys like Beniel Daruish and Gastelum are high level and calculated strikers with crazy good offence but both share similar issues in boxing defence. Whenever I hear a fighter go train under Cordeiro I'm always expecting great results.
