This week on Heavy Hands, we’re talking about stature. On this show, we have already dedicated numerous episodes to fighting style, and our main point was this: style is not a product of build, but of personality. It would be a mistake to base a fighter’s approach entirely on his size and shape without taking into account the makeup of his mind.
Even so, there are certain tactics that work well for long and tall fighters, and certain tactics that allow short fighters to counter them. On today’s episode, we discuss these techniques in-depth, addressing how short men can fight from the outside as well as in the pocket, and analyzing the difference between short man’s boxing, and short man’s MMA.
Yair Rodriguez and David Teymur are also on the brain thanks to their impressive performances at UFC Salt Lake City, and we spend the first segment of the show breaking down their fights, and predicting where they go from here.
