Ed Perdomo returns with the next arch in MMA Gospel’s Technique of the Week. During this arch, Ed will work with Bob Berard to show how techniques work with different body types. This week focuses on the importance of blending. Where the majority of MMA fighters fall short, all the way up to the top of the UFC food chain, is they fail to effectively use the various facets of MMA together. You can often see a fighter “switch” between “striking mode” “wrestling mode” and “grappling mode” throughout a bout. You then watch that same fighter get out wrestled when he’s a wrestler or out struck when he’s a kick boxer and this is often due to his “inferior” opponent using the other facets of his game to supplement the deficits in their other areas. Now without further fanfare, Ed Perdomo demonstrates a body log takedown and pass to back mount using strikes to set up every transition.
