Styles make fights. We’ve all heard that before, right?

Well, it’s true. But styles also make fighters, and there is no fighter on earth who doesn’t, in one way or another, express the attributes of one of fighting’s central archetypes. This week Pat and Connor are breaking down those archetypes–out-boxer, counter fighter, pressure fighter, and boxer-puncher–and kicking off a new series in the process. A series called (you guessed it) Styles Make Fights.

In this first installment, your hosts try to answer the fundamental questions: what makes a style a style, and why do we create these archetypes in the first place? What follows is a lengthy, enthusiastic discussion of the facets of style, what separates one form the next, and even some lively debate as to how many styles there really are.
