Game Planning Opponents?
It seems that a lot of fighters are hesitant to take a fight against an opponent that they can't find footage on. The search through google, youtube, etc. to fight some videos that they can study to come up with a plan. Well, I say "Baloney". You can look at a video from 2 years ago and expect to have a plan for your opponent when you fight him. First of all, whatever he did was applied to the opponent at hand. Secondly, you have to adapt to what's going on in your matches. Sure there are certain habits that one carries from match to match. But, you should be able to pick up on what he is doing good or bad within the first minute of a fight. You must learn to read what's going on and make adjustments during the fight. Do plan to do a specific thing based on a clip you watched from last year because you might end up looking for something that never comes.
