Eddie Bravo’s Corner Advice

Postby bruins2012 » Wed May 13, 2020 11:37 am

The differences in corner advice on Saturday though...

Trevor: Take 10% off your shots, you’re trying to kill him. Throw the right, then when he leans back throw the left. Set up the leg kicks with jabs.

Eddie: Looking beautiful Tony, throw some sand bro. Might have to throw out an Imunari roll....





Not the most technical advice.....


:P
When engaged in combat, the vanquishing of thine enemy can be the warrior's only concern. Suppress all human emotion and compassion. Kill whoever stands in thy way, even if that be Lord God or Buddha himself.

Bravo is a real good jits coach for mma. Especially if you have a certain frame for his techniques.

However

Bravo is not a good cornerman. He is the opposite of John Donhnananhner in terms of in fight cornering.

If I was getting my ass beat very badly and the best advice i get is "maybe its time to try an imanari roll" I would be looking around like are you being serious? that's all?

"Hey Tony, this dude is finishing a lot of his combinations with a left hook, you are losing the striking battles, next time he is gearing up for that combination instead of trying to roll away instead time the hook at the end with a double leg of your own."

I noticed something interesting that i might look for in other fights. Tony was able to absorb very powerful shorts to the right side of his face (Justins left hooks) but shots to the left side of his face (right hooks) with less power wobbled him way more frequently.

Wait... You mean Eddie Bravo, the BJJ expert, didn’t give good corner advice in a fight that was predominately striking?

Even though Tony was getting destroyed most of the fight he still almost won at the end of the second. That was with bad cornering and a terrible game plan.

It's because he needed the takedown and Mr. "Look into it" sounded like an amateur doing so.

I'm sad for Tony. Spent most of his camp preparing for a grappler, cuts weight twice, gets bad corner advice, gets fucked up royally in a loss that snaps his insane winning streak, lastly it will rob him of getting at Khabib.

He might have a chance in the future but it will never be the same for obvious reasons.

Agree man, damn well said. As much as I'd enjoy setting BJJ training from Eddie. The advice wasn't good at all. I do think they likely had a solid plan for Nurmagomedov though.
