Phan Discusses Punching to the Body in MMA
Phan, on “The
Savage Dog Show,” discussing the use of body punches in
“I think guys don’t use it as much because it’s a very technical
punch. It takes a while to get good at. I think people think that
when you throw the punch, when you throw a body shot, you leave
your head open. It takes a lot of practice. If you use it well,
it’s very effective. … It’s very flattering that I’m known for the
body shots, but I don’t try to knock guys out with a body shot. … I
take what I can get. If the body’s there, I’ll take the body. If
the head shot’s there, I’ll take the head. If the leg’s there, I’ll
kick the leg. If the submission’s there, I’ll take the submission.
I just think guys maybe need to be more open-minded to strikes.
That’s all. Or just put more time into it.”
