I think I would only disagree with not grappling with a stronger,heavier opponent. This can be done by a trained grappler dealing with a non trained grappler. We all saw Royce defeat larger strikers with no grappling experience. Also being in a clinch with a stronger person can be safer because of the clinch limiting the effectiveness of their strikes.

Hi there. Totally agree with you. Sometimes it is better to knock off (Takedown) your opponent using his immobility so you can avoid his punches and then use ground and pound to finish him.

Somehow I am reminded of the Tyson/Holyfield fight. Tyson kept hugging Holyfield throughout much of the fight. When the moment was right, he applied the biting technique. It didn't work out for him, but yeah it's a good way to tie up your opponent. And in a street fight for survival, everything goes, biting included.
