This is a guest post from Damon

I originally thought that I was being contacted to write for Atlantic MMA because I was in the running for Ring Girl of the Month. When it was pointed out that I’m a guy, and not particularly that gorgeous, I realized the err in my ways and cancelled the Brazilian I had scheduled.

The Cody Mckenzie Guillotine Choke

Posted in College of BJJ

11-0, 10 by way of guillotine (actually it’d be 13-0 with 12 guillotines if they counted his most recent Ultimate Fighter 12 wins). 12 out of 13 wins by way of guillotine…that’s absolutely nuts.

Continuing on the obvious theme of this blog, boxing for MMA, if possible we want to stay on our feet and out of the clinch. But as you may have noticed, almost every fight ends up in the clinch at one time or another.

Our goal here is to break out of that clinch to resume boxing.

Your opponent’s goal is to dirty box, grab a dominant muay thai clinch hold, or pummel for double underhooks to put your ass on the mat.

Our first priority is to stay out of the clinch entirely if we want to box for MMA, but many a time we’ll be matched with someone who’s adept at getting us into one.

So it’ll be important to know how to escape a dominant clinch hold as a way to avoid that potential worst case scenerio.

This video fits in nicely with what we do here on this blog—teaching you guys how to stay on your feet, and out of the clinch so you can just box in an MMA setting.
