My favorite striking technique has changed so much over the years. When I first started training and sparring I probably had about as much power striking as Ben Askren with the only thing that I had that was a real threat being a spinning back fist. I've evolved a ton since then though. I do still love the spinning back fist, but I don't use it near as often because I don't have to. I LOVE leg kicks and my striking is incredibly tooled toward abusing them and using them often. But since I don't want to say my favorite strike is something that has virtually no chance of KOing somebody, I'd say it's either an over hand right or right hook. I KOd a dude once in sparring with a right hook and was like "Dude! I didn't know I had that kind of power" and fell in love with it.

Grappling I'd have to say armbar set up by a triangle choke. I love that set up. I throw up a triangle and start making adjustments to sink it in and as soon as they start to adjust I throw my hips over and turn it into an armbar. I have a pretty high success rate with that set up. I also enjoy the guillotine choke. I am really quick sinking it in when people shoot on me.

Striking - I like to throw an overhand right (stepping forward with my left leg) and once I've thrown that I throw a headkick with the left. Use it lots when my partners/opponent back up towards to cage.

Grappling - I like to use a hip throw, get side mount and go right into the crucifix.

Striking- I throw a lot of leg kicks to start and finish combos so I really like getting guys to think about that and then fake a left low kick to go straight into a spinning right back fist.

Grappling- I love attempting the kneebar from half guard just like Jim Miller but the key word is attempting My favourite technique that I manage to actually get results from is the omoplata

Arm Triangle from bottom guard. Works best if you are a long lanky guy like me. Shorter dudes usually got to scoot out to the side a bit to nail it

Grappling Technique: Arm Drag with a Hip Drop, the level change is so drastic that it really catches your opponent by surprises. I normally get a takedown or back control off of it!!!
