    slippery guys

    So i was rolling against an mma guy the other day in a super hot day, which made this guy (fighting topless) slipperier than a vaseline covered fish. I like to think ive got a pretty good clinch, i can hold most guys down but i just wasnt prepared for something like this. ive never really trained to much in warm places and i was wondering if anyone has had this problem before and has any tips. i know there is the clinch harder and stuff like that but is it rude to ask a guy to use a towel? deeper clinches i could use maybe?

    any help would be great.

    the roll ended up with me just just working on getting back into half or full guard again and again cos he slipped out of everything.

    Cover yourself in powder before rolling.

    Check his oil HARD, and then when you've got him all flustered, transition to the back and sink that RNC bwaii!

    Funny thing about sweaty opponents...
    1. They are usually almost always tired. perfect time for a scramble!
    2. a scramble with a slick opponent means an easy path to the back!!!
    3. That rear naked is unaffected by sweat bud!
