So far on Heavy Hands we’ve talked about out-fighters and boxer-punchers. Today, Pat and I get the chance to talk about a fighting style close to both of our hearts: pressure fighting. Bouts involving a pressure fighter are almost guaranteed action, as the style calls for constant forward momentum and a nerve-wrackingly narrow gap between the two combatants. To understand the style, Pat and I break down four spectacular exemplars of the type: UFC middleweight champion Chris Weidman, light heavyweight contender Anthony “Rumble” Johnson, boxer Gennady Golovkin, and flyweight boxing champ Roman “El Chocolatito” Gonzalez.
Tune in to hear two self-professed pressure fighters talk about the art of pressure fighting.
