Coach Mike Riordan joins Connor and Pat on today’s episode of Heavy Hands to talk about wrestling, that weird sport in which two guys roll around in unitards.
Of course, wrestling is also a fundamental aspect of MMA, and plays into just about every phase of the sport, be it striking on the feet, on the ground, or riding and pinning opponents to find opportunities for submissions and control.
The crew also discusses UFC 179. In particular, the wrestling clinic put on by Phil Davis (with a bit of discussion about where Davis’ coaches may be going wrong in training him to strike on the outside) and the insane defensive wrestling of featherweight champ Jose Aldo. All of that and more on today’s Heavy Hands!
