    In an MT fight when someone charges me I try to make space with push kicks, leg kicks, move laterally and throw punches back of my own, and clinch. Like in my last fight my opponent came at me swinging but clean punching, and always mixed in kicks/knees, he didnt just run up to me and just start throwing haymakers.

    When someone charges me like a brawler throwing haymakers I just out box them and clinch because its pretty easy.

    It has already been stated here..but one really can't emphasize enough - angles, angles angles.
    Ryno's point about having power on your punches is a good one to keep in mind as well. You would be amazed at how easily a nice stiff jab keeps a big man with heavy hands at bay.
    One example of this from Boxing would be the George Foreman - Alex "The Destroyer" Stewart fight. Stewart lost a decision, but he kept Foreman at a distance with his jab and made an awful mess of his face.

    Just drop levels and shoot just like you did. You /are/ fighting MMA and he's coming right at you for chrrisakes.

    You don't have to box if you don't want to. But if you want to keep it standing, listen to the posters before me.

    Your short? Find someone in your gym who can throw bombs. Put on your gloves and headgear. Have him throw bombs, work on getting inside and throwing body shots only without dieing. Do this every time you train for about 3 months. After that let me know if you care or even notice he's throwing bombs anymore.

    (Like most have said, Angles help)

    Watch the Cro Cop vs Silva rematch to see how you can handle someone who throws bombs at you. Counters and angles are the answers, I think.

    I concur (I always wanted to say that). Taking a good puncher to the gound where they are likely weaker is the best approach. What really sucks is if the person is good on the ground AND throws decapitating punches. In that case take the standup advice given previously. I think its good to work both in case you find the brawler/wrestler type.

    You can also work kicks. A straight kick to the hips or torso will keep them away and will shake them up a little. I like to clinch, then lock their power arm while I pound away with the free hand.

    How do you throw body shots against a brawler without getting killed? Seems like something you have to use sparingly. At least for me they always seem to leave me way too open.
