I think it's just the variety of moves a guy has.
In general I have to agree with the thread starter, though. Feels like it's quite rare to se fighters rolling, by just bending at the knees, under hooks like taught in the gym. It seems to be more common to bend primarily at the waist when ducking. Is it since there's just no time to roll properly under hooks from pros, especially when the opponent is shorter?

Slipping outside right hands in the correct manner isn't as common either, but since it's often overhand rights being thrown I suppose it's hard to do.
