Frankie Edgar vs. Gray Maynard: Jeff Joslin Breakdown

In the first round Frankie Edgar took a savage beating inside the octagon but after making a few small adjustments between rounds, Frankie began to get much less.

The main adjustment Frankie Edgar made was a simple yet often underused striking concept. He started to move his head off the line of fire often –especially after throwing his own punching combos– causing Maynard to miss a huge percentage of his striking attacks.

I filmed a video breaking down the way I apply several of the techniques Frankie Edgar used so successfully to keep his head from being Gray’s punching bag, in rounds two, three, four and five.
