"Big" John McCarthy's Favorite MMA Techniques #2: The JabStyle: Boxing | Learn it from: Anderson Silva “A good jab can go a long way in MMA, but it’s still very underutilized,” McCarthy says. “The jab in MMA is not the same as boxing and needs to be employed differently, but it remains the quickest and straightest punch a fighter has in their tool kit. Having a good jab helps you maintain the proper distance and can keep your opponent off-balance, disrupting their striking game and takedown attempts.” MMA Techniques Video #2 "Big" John McCarthy Shows You the Jab
