Ian "The Hurricane" Heinisch is one of the top middleweights in the world and has been fighting in the UFC since 2018. His moves are proven to work against some of the toughest competition out there, and not only is he an amazing fighter but he is also a great instructor!
In part one of the series, he shows a ton of amazing details for collar tie counters. He starts with the slide by, then goes into great detail on how to hit the ankle pick from the same position, and lastly he shows how to hit the double leg when they try to square up with you. If you've been having issues with a strong collar tie, you need to check this one out!
Ian has an incredible story of redemption. After winning the Colorado High-School State Championship for wrestling, he dropped out of school while attending North Idaho College and started selling drugs. He then went to jail in the Canary Islands and then Rikers Island. After that, he realized he needed to change. He became a professional MMA fighter in 2015 and has risen to the top, he is a truly inspirational figure and we're super excited to have him on JJOTG!
