MMA does not work against bodybuilders in the street.
or my MMA. have been training MMA for a year at the suggestion of this forums and friends about 2-3 times a week. This summer I took a job as a bouncer at a bar. well there was a few bodybuilders who were there last night that got kicked out of the bar. They came back causing trouble out side the bar me and the other bouncer went outside to handle it. long story short all hell broke loose, and now im a 5'10 180lbs guy facing a 260-280 lbs raging batista or brock lensnar clone who is drunk.
He pushes me swings I evade and landed a jab cross combo 2- 3 times. complete contact doesnt even fade the dude. so now im thinking muay thai kicks. but problem the pants I am wearing restrict my leg movement, and i cant kick like i can in my MMA work out clothes. I couldnt go to the ground with BJJ , because there was so much chaos. I didnt know where the guys freinds was. he starts to grab me and the cops show up and mace and arrest the guys. thank god I didnt get hurt
Im reflecting today and call my freind from college, he tells me Im idiot for trying to box a guy that much bigger then me. He says that woman or guys fighting someone way bigger should focus on hitting soft spots and throws that mis direct energy. I dont know what art he studies.
so since i dont plan on fighting MMA officially should I focus on another art which would help me with bigger and stronger opponents or should i just become more profecient at MMA and eventually the increase in skill will close the size and strenght gap
