"Butterfly guard is maybe not the best to use against someone 300 lbs plus" - my aching back
Damn Maynard fell off hard. He’s been knocked out in 4 of his last 5 fights. All of them have been really bad ones too. It’s time to hang’em up.
That’s rough. There was a time, not so long ago, when Maynard looked like a bad matchup for anyone.
I’ve competed against the same people in a points match and was able to get submissions quicker because as I attack the back, they defend the hooks, and when their focusing on not getting scored on, it opens up submissions. In submission only, a guy won’t care. He’s just going to defend his neck. It’s easy to not get submitted and not get points scored. I prefer watching point’s matches over submission only. Submission only matches; I’m only interested in the outcome. In a points match, I’m curious to see everything that lead up to the outcome.

Definitely the nail today. The only consolation - I took my beating and went back for more.
