It changes the game completely. I just make my own plan and don't let my opponent use his plan. If this guy wants to stand up, that's fine with me. If he wants to go on the ground, that's fine with me, too.
If you had a preference, would you rather fight on the ground or stand up?
It surprised me. He didn't make any movement before he kicked. He always does that kick so I knew it was coming but usually people make some movement before they do that kick. I had my hands high so I was ok. It was hard, though.
Yeah, it was. It knocked you down but it didn't hurt you. Have you ever though about doing stuff like that in the ring?
