I notice this technique watching UFC 143 Condit vs Diaz fight. I noticed how Condit being push back to the the Octagon Wall and he employ some sort of slipping technique to get out of Diaz’s strikes. Dr. Sick, can you look into this technque a little deeper?

Adding more details to what I saw. Diaz is a south paw (pure boxing style) vs orthadox ( muay thai style).[ This could lead to another topic: Boxing vs Muay Thai styles in MMA. ex: Diaz vs Cerrione, Diaz vs Condit, the boxers seem to get the better of the muay thai guys recently].


So Diaz was in south paw stance with Condit back agaist the wall. Condit slipped his entire body to the left into a south paw stance. He did this the entire fight. I am sure Greg Jackson game plannied this technique for the fight. I would love for Brian, to look into this technique and post a video of it.   I wonder if you can do this in a boxing ring, when you are trapped in a corner.

Unfortunately I didn’t see this fight.  I’d love to discuss this with others here.  Anybody have a .gif we can take a look at?

Hey Brian, I got you a full link for the entire fight right here:



Here are the things I want to know after watching the fight:

1. Joe Rogan commented that Nick Diaz, always seems to control the octagon. How do you establish octagon/ring control and be in the middle dictating the fight like Diaz?


2. How to you “slip” out of striking and get away from getting trapped on the fence and corner? Same as my previous comment.


I browse though out your website and I think the topic ring/octagon control is seldom addressed. I think learning this technique will be important for me because I watched lot of fights where a smaller fighters ( in muay thai and mike tyson/manny “pacman”) would dominate a taller stronger fighter by simply having ring control and backing him in the corner and finishing him off.


I think this will be a great topic to cover for your next video series.
