Default Re: How would you fight someone who has a significant height/reach advantage?

Im a short and stocky build and i compete at 84 Kilo's, therefore my whole time i seem to contest the longer taller frame

I like to faint, roll and throw with short shots, i never really jab with a longer guy, once you have your opponent guessing its a good time to shoot off a strike or a feint

A simple combination i have worked extensively for MMA is just a sharp jab followed by a left hook to the body, specifically for longer fighters i find this works this great, the movement has to be dynamic, but to summarise i just find it best to be active and use speed / dynamic movement, if you sit out there with no movement your getting your head jabbed off or legs kicked off
