I don't know enough about striking to know if what he is doing is technical or not but it doesn't really seem like it. I've seen people paw with a jab before but never pump it multiple times without even the slightest chance of landing. Can someone post a gif of this? Maybe I'm dumb but it seems likes weird technique. Phone Post 3.0

I mentioned this when I was watching him fight, especially when he pumps his jab. Phone Post 3.0

It's a setup, imo.

He is using it to establish his rhythm.

Other fighters do different things for the same effect.

I'm going to guess he does it to get his opponents to back up so he can land his kicks

He isnt trying to jab. He wants the other guy to jab so he can counter with a right hook

I don't have a link, hence I am useless, but Jack Slack covered what he uses this jab for in his last dethroning the king write up. Phone Post 3.0
