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 two of the series, Ian shows a really sneaky way to keep control when your opponent gets the far side under hook from side control. Then he shows multiple submissions from that position that are easy to hit with multiple options depending on how they react. Lastly, he covers how to recover position when they do get their close side elbow to the mat or get the leg in to take your back.
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!
