What's the worst corner advice you've ever heard given to a fighter mid-fight? Of course, it doesn't have to be the worst imaginable, but I'm sure we've all heard advice in the corners during fights and scratched our heads at the strange and, sometimes, downright stupid things coaches tell their fighters when they don't know how to fix the problem. For example, Kelly Pavlik's corner in the B-hop fight. All they told him to do was "double up the jab." Over and over, despite the fact that he was getting countered right and left and had no defense to speak of. "Pump the jab." But that's not mine. I'll give you the instance that prompted me to make this thread. Spoilers if you didn't catch UFC 155, but JDS lost, and very badly. The worst thing was, his corner kept telling him to keep his hands up. That was literally their only advice in terms of how to stop Cain from hitting him. Cigano's style literally never involve hands held constantly high. Why on earth would he suddenly need his hands up in the middle of the fight? And would that really help him at all? No, of course. They were also asking for the uppercut, which is gonna be awful hard to throw with the hands held up. And they were asking for takedown defense, which definitely suffers from high hands as well. They didn't give Junior any advice about using his jab, or changing levels, or moving around, or hitting the body, or keeping Cain out of his space. I wonder, does he have a quality boxing coach? Because if he doesn't, imagine how badass he'd be with one. If he does as well as he does with his hands and that's the kind of boxing advice he's being given, then the man is a veritable prodigy. Anyway, that's my rant. What are your examples?
