In general a fighter does not get the nickname “Bang” without packing some power and being well-versed in the stand-up department. Such is certainly true in terms of UFC welterweight Duane Ludwig, an accomplished kickboxer and Mixed Martial Artist with a ton of wins via knockout.

In this MMATraining Technique of the Day, Ludwig demonstrates some basic striking while reviewing the necessary components to throwing an effective blow in terms of footwork, movement, timing, etc. Watch the video today and then make sure to check him out tomorrow night on when he faces Josh Neer at UFC on FX: Guillard vs. Miller.
