Here is a link to a Ryan Hall interview where it seems he has changed some his ideas on the relative merits of guard and submission attempts from the back. I have always wondered how his “game plan” has worked so well against everyone except the very elite guys, especially Brasilians, where he has struggled. This is maybe the next step in the evolution of his training and development. Makes for interesting reading. I admire his determination to compete and succeed against the very best.
