I saw this recent training footage of Fedor training. Whenever you mention such a high name fighter, you feel like you have to apologize before hand if you were to share any of your thoughts that might be perceived as slights. I have to say he is the man, who am I? I am just a mere mortal who has never fought MMA so forgive me for these observations, etc.
Well just pretend I said all that. Watching this footage I did have some thoughts and noticed some things. First Fedor rarely let his training partner start out with an underhook. Secondly he never hip escaped, instead he constantly belly rolled onto his knees. Thirdly he also started out on his side and didn't let the top guy get good hand positioning on him.
Fedor is the man. But this footage isn't necessarily a good example. What's my expertise? No I don't fight MMA. But I do put my money where my mouth is and bet on MMA. And I am right more often than not.
