Straight from "KenFlo" via the official press release:
"Mixed martial arts is still a growing sport. It's important that we educate the new and core fans about MMA and this show will do just that. In it we talk about tactical stuff, statistics and technical aspects of the sport. This is a big step forward to getting people to understand the strategies in the Octagon. We break down and explain why guys fight against the cage, what a striker or a wrestler is trying to do, why someone is in the guard and why someone passes the guard."
Elementary, my dear Florian.
UFC 101: "The Fundamentals" will break down the basics of UFC bouts by "explaining each of the eight weight classes, the rules of the fights and how judges score each round." This kinda stuff comes in handy for those guys at your gym who "train UFC, bro."
Joining Florian will be former UFC Light Heavyweight Champion Rashad Evans to deconstruct the "different fighting styles including striking, wrestling, Muay Thai and Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu" including the breakdown of "different types of submissions such as triangle chokes, arm bars and rear naked chokes."
Take notes, white belts.
