MMA Fighting Stance and Setting Up the Takedown - Joe Lauzon

Out of context caption: JLau: "Don't Leeeaaaavvvveeee meeeee!!!"
This is a great video by Joe Lauzon where he shows us the MMA stance range with the variance between the extremes of the wide staggered boxing stance and the squared up wrestling stance, then finishes by showing us the basic footwork required to finish double leg takedowns off the shot.

Covers-
Differences between boxing, wrestling, and kickboxing stances
Footwork for Shooting for the Takedown and Turning the Corner
Using the Hook Feint to Set Up the Takedown

Note-
See how smoothly JLau goes in for the takedown and lands in side control- very good training form for cutting the corner.
