Feel free to critique my fight and give me advice. 

 

I love watching technique videos so linking me anything you think might help would be awesome

Nice right hand.

I liked it when you kicked him in the dick.

How about working on your head movement? You were a little stiff. Dude was able to land a lot, so if he was a better striker it could have been a problem for you.

Been trying to work it. I only train stand up like once a week. I think I just got super stiff on the night. 

 

I need to improve my movement overall a tonne. Any suggestions of fighters with head movement I should study?

Some really good offence dude!! I havent trained too much but I'd suggest some straight boxing training. Angles and tuck that chin a little more... 

 

Enjoyable fight to watch!!!

Love bjj scouts breakdowns of his striking. Watched them a hundred times. Implementing something he does is a little tricky when you’re as bad at stand up as I am haha

For sure, I have been working on stepping off on angles. But practicing and actually doing are two different things

You need to go train under OG and YouTube legend Icy Mike.

Good on you for putting this up. 

1) I'd try and work on avoiding the putting your head back to avoid punches and slip them. If you get caught with a shot you'll fall back otherwise. Just my two cents.

In addition to the head movement, try not holding it so high. Nice leg kicks and KO!

I have 3 up on the eternal mma YouTube. I’ve been working slips and counters off slips, but that all went out the window in the heat of the moment... oops

Nice timing with that overhand.

I think you looked really good for being your 3rd ammy fight.

Fighting in front of a crowd is different from training,  so different.

Thank you, it’s so crazy how different I am during sparring and during an actual fight. 

Barely threw a jab the whole time in my fights but in the gym I try to throw a bunch of lead hand strikes
