Dellagrotte is one of the best coaches out there. It sounds bad but he was just trying to get Miguel out of that tough guy mind set. Its not tough to get hit its tough to not get hit.
I definitely agree with all of this. Delagrotte is the best standup coach in MMA IMO. When it comes to footwork that is. There might be some guys who are better combination teachers, but as far as maintaining the distance and keeping the fight outside I'm very impressed with Delagrotte's tutelage.
My knock on Torres has always been that he is willing to give as many hits as he's willing to take. That's all fine and dandy, and it may work for a while, but sooner or later your ticket will get punched. Torres + Delagrotte's tutelage = Scary. Glad to see they're working on this specific problem.
