1. cause unconsciousness
2. cause injury
3. cause “stress” (fear/pain creating a defensive response psychologically and physically)
4. control the space/ control the opponent

Assuming their top priorities once the fight had begun was to knock the opponent out or injure them what top 5 major mistakes are these guys making?
