Pride fighting Betting Tips
Sports fans have watched mixed martial arts and Pride Fighting Championships become more and more popular every year. Since the ancient days of gladiators, spectators have enjoyed betting on the out come of combative sporting contests. Every moment of a fight seems much more exciting when there is money riding on the outcome. Today is no different, as a growing number of people are betting on modern-day mixed martial arts events.
If you follow the pride fight matches and have been paying attention you probably noticed one thing,
sooner or later most matches go to the ground. Rarely do you see matches being determined by the fighters squaring off toe-to-toe boxing each other. While lethal punches and kicks have their part in mixed martial arts fighting, but when it comes to ground fighting that is what defines a champion.
Just look at most of the legendary mixed martial art fighters like Randy Couture, he comes from a wrestling background, Ken Shamrock is a submission grappler, Vito Belfort studied Brazilian Jiu Jitsu and Chuck Liddell with his kickboxing and grappling abillity.
For a Pride fighter, no style can be complete without ground-fighting training. Many martial arts are
evolving to include ground-fighting techniques and for any one interested in self-defense, ground fighting is an essential study.
Ground fighting is an excellent option, the control found in the submissions and holds of ground fighting make ending a fight quickly and safely a reality. For law enforcement and security personnel, ground fighting provides an excellent venue to control and subdue suspects. With increasing public disapproval of extreme force, ground fighting is an even better choice. Taking a suspect to the ground where they can be controlled and handled without striking them is much more preferable to pulling out the billy club or night stick.
Mixed Martial Arts Betting odds and what areas to look at when picking a winner. The nature of mixed martial arts makes it a difficult sport to consistently pick the winner. This is because there is such a wide range of skill sets for fighters to draw from and contend with. Over the last decade, it has become obvious that a fighter's success in mixed martial arts depends on three basic components.
By analyzing a fighter's strength in these three components as compared to his opponent, it is easier
to pick a likely winner.
1) Stand-up Striking: This category includes skill sets such as muay thai kickboxing and western boxing, and uses weapons such as punches, kicks, elbows and knees. Basically, how good is the fighter at attacking and defending while on his feet? If a fighter has shown to be competent in these skills sets, he will often be referred to as having "good stand-up."
2) Ground Grappling: This category includes skill sets such as jiu jitsu and sambo. A fighter's ground
grapping ability will determine how likely he is able to control his opponent on the ground or finish
the fight with a submission hold such as an armlock, leglock or choke.
3) Wrestling: This category is not only limited to the sport of wrestling; it also includes skill setis
such as judo. This component determines how well a fighter is able to bring his opponent to the ground, or prevent the opponent from bringing him to the ground. Fighters with a strong wrestling component are able to dictate whether the fight takes place on the feet or on the ground.
