Can you guys think of ways that MMA has changed/evolved over the years?
I'm talking of the way fights progress.
Back in the Tito days, pre UFC 40, fighters seemed to want to take their oppoent down and stack them up aginst the fence and smash them up.
Now they seem keen to get their opponent down and keep them away from the fence in order to rain down blows.
I have also noticed that fighters are better at getting back to the feet after a take down and alot of the time using the fence.
So because of the way tactics are now getting countered the game plans are changing.
I have done no research into this and this is probably not written well so I hope I get my point across.
