Man, you're quite bright to be honest. You've got some potential.

I was expecting more along the line "Why would I headbutt something for??! We's talkin' 'bout fore'ed punchess !!! 111 one one shift 111"

Anyway, foreheads are one of the hardest part in the human anatomy. The reason? Our central 'computers' are just right there behind that big thick skull of yours. So don't go hittin' that big noggin' of yours on something. It's not worth it.

The main problem with transfering your boxing skills to MMA is going to be the basic non-existance of the pocket. The pocket is just beautiful shooting range. MMA striking is more defensive and ranged overall thanks to the shoot and to the clinch.

Like my master said about MMA;

If you're not grappling, you better be boxing 'smart' from afar. If you close the gap, you better be grappling, or you're (cenzored).

Basically, boxing is good workout for your hands, but there are some things you can pretty much not consider taking into MMA, for example, the clinch work and much of in-fighting because if you're close you're better off grappling than striking. Sure, boxing's defensive maneuvres like bob and weave are still viable, but only from long-range, if you do it and then suddenly get kneed in the face, don't say I didn't warn you.

That my friend, takes months, not days to learn. Everyone is different, and each person, each opponent has different ranges.

Never think you know something when you've only recently started. It will affect your ego when you're come to a block where you're thinking "What am I doing wrong??" and many have dropped out because they behaved exactly like you. Thinking that just because they only recently started, they've got the skills. Nope, far from that. It takes months, years to acquire "experience" not techniques. Your technique may be flawless, but experience will overcome in the end. You, have no experience, so there's no reason whatsoever that you know each and every person's shooting range.

Quote:

Chinese Idiom - Know your opponent, and know yourself. Fight 100 times, win 100 times.

Know yourself, but not know your opponent. Fight 100 times, lose 50 times.

Know not yourself, and not know your opponent. Fight 100 times, get owned in da face 100 times.


Ok, I altered the ending a bit. So what?
