Before I got gased I would stay busy and hit him with an over hand right in the shoulder that would knock him back. This was keeping him at bay. What should I do when he attacks like that? Block and move out? Then wait till he gases?
Interlock one of his arms with your own around the outside or both, then bang away at the back of his rib... that should de-pressurise him a bit.
Jam back his body hooks with your elbow, by deliberately jutting those elbows into his thumb. If he's crouching to do body shots, retract to draw it further then slap down hard and supress his arm to divert his direction, causing a good disruption to his rythm.
Those tricks should give him a real run for his money.
