MMA Future Evolution: MMA Tete-A-Tete with Dallas Winston and Kid Nate

Kid Nate and Dallas Winston talk about the cutting edge of MMA striking including: Lyoto Machida, John Makdessi and Shotokan karate, Muay Thai standing elbows and knees to the body, the sons of Chuck Liddell and the future of sprawl and brawl, Anthony Pettis and capeoria, wing chun, savate and more.

I'm back with another installment of the MMA Tete-A-Tete: Coarsening the Discourse. Bloody Elbow's own preview specialist Dallas Winston joins me for this edition as we discuss the future evolution of MMA.

As always if you enjoy this sort of gum flapping, subscribe to the MMA Nation YouTube channel.

We chew over a couple of techniques that Dallas thinks are going to have a bigger and bigger impact on MMA in the short term:

  • Standing elbows
  • Knees to the body on the ground
We also talk about some of the traditional martial arts that have impacted MMA in the past few years notably:
Plus a discussion of boxing technique in MMA with looks at:
  • The sprawlNbrawl of Chuck Liddell
  • Costa Phillopou
  • Fabiano Maldonado
We also briefly touch on savate, wing chun and a couple of other what ifs?

Enjoy!
