Blending Boxing into MMA

By Personal trainer and Boxing coach, Scott Neal

When blending boxing into MMA, it really isn’t no different then blending other styles of fighting. In Mixed Martial arts, a fighter learns many styles of fighting such as Muay Thai, Karate, Ju Jitsu, wrestling..ect and also boxing. The beauty of blending styles is that each fighters gets take take a little of everything and fit it into their MMA game. Implementing boxing is no different. There are aspects of boxing that just doesn’t really fit into the MMA, and then there are things that work really well. One of the things I find that MMA fighters tweak from boxing to MMA is the stance for example. the boxer usually stands less squared up, not much of his body exposed, plus to also get his right hand ( assuming he or she is in a conventional stance ) more motion and punching power. The MMA fighter squares up slightly to have the ability to throw leg kicks on command and more efficient. On the other hand, both MMA fighters and boxers can use the same fighting range. What works the best from boxing into MMA simply is MASTERING THE BASICS and CUTTING OUT THE FAT ( eliminating unnecessary movements). Long range boxing works the best using basic boxing. Close range usually ends up into clinching or dirty boxing. Master the basics then add some fine tuning tools like feinting and other deceptive moves. Even with the difference in fighting gloves, the defense is slightly different. Fighting with 4 ounce gloves, the margin of error shrinks. In boxing, the hands do not have to be as high as in MMA…Mastering the basics, find out what works for YOU, fine tuning, tweaking, loving the fight game and being passionate in your craft are the keys in blending.

Quick glance on Ward vs Dawson

Besides the fact we really missed Micheal Buffer, we had to settle with Wiling out with Nick Cannon’s ring announcements. other than that, everyone in the arena seemed pumped. Andre Wards debut fighting on HBO taking on the number 1 guy in the division Chad Dawson who came down to meet Ward at 168 lbs. Both fighters came into the ring looking in great condition. Ward steps in at 25-0 coming off a 12 dec over Carl Froch while Dawson steps in at 31-1 coming off a majority decision over Bernard Hopkins.

Round 1- Both guys come out slow using the jab and try to feel each other out. both fighters looking to counter punch. Seemes Dawson tries to be the aggressor while Ward moves on angles trying to counter. Pretty much even round.

Second round- Starts out the same, both fighters looking to counter punch. Ward tries to be aggressive which pays off by cutting Dawson over the right eye. Both fighters both go back to the counter punch game with clinching in between. Slow second round, you could give Ward the round with the cut.

Round3- starts the same, in the middle of the ring both trying to counter punch. Tactful round till middle of the Dawson getting caught by a beautifully executed left hand to the head set up by the right hand to the body. From there the fight changes. Ward presses on with combinations but then Dawson tries to return back. 3 round goes to Ward.

Round 4- Dawson falls victim again by a Ward left hook which he gets up and tries to shake off. Ward tactfully presses the attack and methodically breaks down Dawson. With the right eye bleeding, Dawson stays in front of Ward without any attack. Ward wins round 4 easily.

Round 5- Starts back being a tactful fight, both fighters in the middle of the ring counter punching with Ward getting the best of the exchanges. With Ward fighting his fight, he wins exchanges with combination to the head and body with Dawson still looking for that counter punch. Ward wins round five in impressive fashion.

Round 6- With 5 rounds behind, Dawson starts the round off standing in front of Ward with no aggression. Ward comes on dictating the fight using his jab to setting up his big shots. Dawson steps in with an aggressive combination but with little effect as Ward comes right back with a combination of his own. Ward stays busy masterfully winning round 6.

Round 7- With Dawson’s corner pleading for him to step it up, Chad comes out silenced with Ward staying busy attacking and counter attacking with combinations to the body and head. Dawson has no answer for the relentless assault from Ward as he landing body and head shots at a high rate. Ward wins round 7 convincingly.

Round 8- Ward comes out in boxer puncher fashion attacking Dawson with combinations set up by the jab with no significant return from Dawson. In the process of breaking Dawson down with heavy precised shots, the cut over Dawson’s eye worsens. Ward stays busy while Dawson stays in survival mode. ward wins round 8 with no contest.

Round 9- As big concerns in the Dawson corner, Garcia begs Chad that he needs to go for broke. Round 9 starts out in Ward fashion stepping in with combinations and countering Dawson’s counters, Dawson standing in front of ward bleeding and no offense. With referee Steve Smoger looking in carefully, Ward mounds steady attacks and counter attacks breaking down Dawson with again no return. Ward wins round 9 .

Round 10- Bloodied and broken down, Dawson comes out for round 10 needing a knock out to win. Ward comes in smelling a victory, puts a combination together breaking his opponent down in championship fashion dropping his battered opponent. Dawson gets up with no intentions of going on, tells Smoger that he’s done and to end the fight.

Someone can argue That Dawson’s lack luster performance was due to dropping down in weight to meet Ward at 168 but was this really the case?… No. Ward Masterfully broke down the number 1 guy in the division Chad Dawson.. No excuses. So with this win, what is next for Ward? Who ever it is, its gonna be a hot ticket as Ward stocks rises again.

The classical boxing jab under utilized in MMA (GETTING THE BASICS)

By Scott Neal

in boxing, the jab is the most important weapon in the game. With the jab you are able to do many of things such as setting up your power shots, shooting it in and out of the *danger zone, *gauging your opponent, and even using it while your thinking of your next strategy. There have been fights won behind the jab such as GSP vs Koscheck just for an example. So why do so few MMA fighters use the jab on the regular? Well, lets think about this… Is it because of the fighting range? When factoring in leg kicks and takedowns, this could affect the way fighters use the jab. i noticed that MMA fighters start out at a little further range than boxers and I’m assuming its because they’re leary on leg kicks. But, the most effective leg kicks are most effective in punch range… So therefore there isnt really a good reason why the jab should be used more often, setting up legs kick, flying knees, even takedowns.

Another big factor of why the jab is abandoned in MMA is the lack of true Boxing coaches in the MMA gyms! Its hard to find a true Boxing coach due to.. one: Boxing coaches are busy coaching boxers, and two: a lot of boxing coaches do not want to deal with MMA. If you’re fortunate to have a true boxing coach, that”s awesome. So with that said, really all it takes is applying boxing into MMA is simply MASTERING THE BASICS. There are things that apply from boxing into MMA , there are things that do not but I want to save that topic for another blog. When it comes to the jab, it would for sure apply very effectively in MMA.

Getting a good understand of the basics of the jab, and the basics of boxing period along with the footwook would be the key. Putting it all together and mastering the basics, then incorporating this into your MMA game would be huge.

MMA fighters please be free and comment!

#implemetingboxingintoMMA (my goal)

*danger zones- there are 3 zones. 1-all the way out (safe zone) 2-in punch range (danger zone) 3-all the way in (somewhat safer zone exception: hooks and uppercuts)

*Gauging your opponent- feeling out your opponent with your jab to see what movements he or she is doing
