Info about "Ground and pound video"
Ground-and-pound is a ground fighting tactic consisting of taking an opponent to the ground using a takedown or throw, obtaining a top, or dominant position, and then striking the opponent, primarily with fists and elbows. Ground-and-pound is also used as a precursor to attempting submission holds.
This style is used by wrestlers or other fighters well-versed in submission defense and skilled at takedowns. They take the fight to the ground, maintain a grappling position, and strike until their opponent submits or is knocked out. Although not a traditional style of striking, the effectiveness and reliability of ground-and-pound has made it a popular tactic as it was first demonstrated as an effective technique by UFC and Pride grand prix champion, Mark Coleman.
It was then adopted as the signature style of former UFC welterweight champ Matt Hughes. UFC champions/former champions Brock Lesnar, Cain Velasquez, Randy Couture and Georges St-Pierre are well known for their ground-and-pound. Today, strikes on the ground are an essential part of a fighter’s training.
