Analysis of Nichao’s Brutal Liver Shot KO
Even if your opponent is a triathlete and has seemingly limitless endurance and toughness, perhaps like a Nick Diaz, they can be slowed down. Even immovable objects that can’t be pushed off or pulled away can still be chipped into and broken.
Nichao‘s mastery of the clinch allowed him to brutalize his opponent with body shots, which eventually broke him. Every single shot to the body will take wind out of your opponent. Even fighters with the greatest gas tanks in the history of combat sports can become winded if you smash their body often enough.
Nichao dominates the clinch and finds his opponent against the ropes. He chooses to attack the body with punches now from a slight distance instead of from the clinch. He knows that if he attacks his opponent has no choice but to shell up. If his opponent attempts to clinch, Nichao will overwhelm him. Nichao is clear to launch an offensive. However, instead of going for the head, Nichao cleverly digs into his opponent’s body with a savage straight right and liver shot, putting an end to the fight.
