A few weeks I posted a blog on the Barao and Dillishaw fight…basically all the cool things I learned from this fight. In that post I discussed the MMA straightblast and how it was effective in the Vitor Belfort and Vanderlai Silva fight, and how certain elements of it can be seen in the Barao / Dillishaw fight.
The MMA straightblast, or boxing straightblast is very good for closing the distance to get into the clinch range.
In this video, Burton Richardson discusses a counter to the straightblast. Enjoy!
