Hi all this is my first post I'm more of a lurker really! I just wanted to share something that happened to me recently...
The short version is i got mugged in Thailand whilst backpacking there. The thing that got me thinking though is even though i have no MMA training i was trying to fight intelligently something i attribute to this site and my growing love of watching MMA
It made me think which I'm all sure we have done at one point does the love of watching mma or combat sports in general help when you are in a fight? i managed a sweep and i was trying to slip off the centre line to throw my right hand both things i have never practised I've just seen them executed when watching fights(i was pissed as a nit at the time)
Just a bit of food for thought if any of you have had moments of the same (to be fair most of my fight/mugging was me on the ground covering up getting the shit kicked out of me) please share!!
Big up to Connor those fight analysis pieces really stick in my head!
