It’s episode two of our new series, Styles Make Fights! And today we’re talking about out-fighters.

Lucky for us, we’ve got one of the greatest out-fighters on earth in Anthony Pettis preparing to entertain us this weekend in defense of his UFC lightweight title. Pat and Connor break down the skills that Pettis uses, but more importantly¬†why he uses them. What’s the mentality of an out-fighter? Why does he throw the strikes he throws, and move the way he moves?

We go into all of this and more while predicting what Pettis will try to do to Rafael Dos Anjos in his second defense of his belt. After that, it’s on to another archetypal out-fighter in Carla Esparza, who will attempt to outbox and outwrestle dangerous eight-limbed kickboxer Joanna Jedrzejczyk.

All of that and more on this episode of Heavy Hands. Enjoy the show!

    I just wanted to say that this is the best analytical podcast i’ve listened too. I value the knowledge and wisdom you guys bring to the table. I have my first smoker fight coming at the end of this month and just by listening and applying your advice and breakdowns to my game ive gotten so much better as a fighter mentally and technically . Theres always guys at the gym that are better and bigger than me but I feel like if I keep up with these podcast’s I will keep evolving into a great fighter!!!! Thank you so much again for your passionate breakdowns !!!!! Look forward to more!

    Id like tho hear some talk about My favourite fighter Alistair Overeem. People talk alot about how good he looked against Roy Nelson, but i disagree. He still has the same defencive problems that got him knocked out against rothwell and bigfoot. I like to watch him the most when his pressuring and coming forward, but he seems to prefer fighting outside, and have these weird mental lapses ( like backing up against the cage and just standing, running away from the opponent, etc.) His a really intresting case study, and id like to hear your opinion about him.
