Entertaining Unorthodox Styles Seen on UFC Stage

Though UFC has its style of fighting, some fighters invent fighting styles to boost their winning chances. Martial Arts fighters on the UFC arena come from various parts of the world. As a result, unpredictable and diverse chaos emerges. Also, the diversity results in some martial arts being more successful than others. For instance, wrestling and jiu-jitsu rank high as the UFC’s dominant styles. But despite Kung Fu being a top fighting style, it lags as one of the UFC’s dominant fighting style. Fo one to win rewards, many UFC fighters incorporate various techniques of fighting and a touch an unorthodox interpretation. Here are some examples.

Pit Fighting

It all started with David Abbott, also known as Tank in 1995 during the UFC 6. In one night, he ploughed over two great fighters. But Oleg Taktarovpushed him out of the ring within 18 minutes, making him loose by a rear-naked choke. A three-night fight in one was the norm in UFC, but the way David Abbott bulldozed the fight with his choice of martial arts style made all the difference. He used his body to knock his opponents off their feet. He then suffocated them with his giant size. The opponents kept on thumping until they got left with no choice but to give up. He even applied this method in WCW, where he took wrestling as his professional career.

Trap Fighting

Paul Veralans, a 6.8” and 300blbs fighter was the culprit. Also renowned as the “Polar Bear”, you can start guessing where this is going. In this style, an opponent got pinned or trapped at close range and could not defend himself. This style depended on strength, and Varelans found success against his smaller opponents. But with the likes of Tank Abbott, he would struggle to get results. UFC has been accepting some of these orthodox fighting styles on their fighting platform.
