Dustin Alexander of Dauntless MMA in Middletown Delaware returns to MMA battle at Harrah’s Casino in Chester PA on December 7th, 2013.
Dustin is a long time student of Mr. Allen J. Sachetti (Chief Instructor Dauntless MMA) who has been taught by Mr. Sachetti Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu, Wrestling, Boxing, Dumpag and Muay Thai is what he calls a very unique MMA curriculum.
Mr. Sachetti divides his system NOT into arts but into areas of “Stand Up”, “Clinch Work” and “Ground”. In the Stand Up it is not just about movement and striking but also something called “Counter Offense” which is an amazing ability to “Attack The Attack” whether it be a Strike, Shoot or Clinch.
Clinch Work for Mr. Sachetti means a variety of adhesive grips and techniques to control the opponent to make takedowns, standing submissions, compressions strikes, flying submissions or break aways to lead back into Stand Up.
For The Ground Mr. Sachetti delivers a high skill level of position control and manipulation into serious ground and pound or submissions. On the bottom we see an MMA Guard that is very offensive with submissions, reversals, tie ups and striking or come outs. On the Top it is about DESTROYING THE GUARD, passing and dominating in the Cross Body with a very unique game called “Grind The Orange”.
All in all Dustin Alexander comes to MMA with a very unique skill set provided to him by Mr. Sachetti. Being already 3-0 in Delaware and Virgina MMA Fights Dustin now breaks into PA MMA to fight on December the 7th, 2013 at Harrah’s Casino. I think this is a young man we will see soon one day in the UFC or Bellator.
As for his teacher Allen J. Sachetti I have to say he is the best kept secret in MMA. This man has an amazing skill level in multiple disciplines but has also broke new ground in this area of Counter Offense and having seen some of his training sessions with Dustin I can tell you that THIS REALLY WORKS against strikers, good wrestlers whatever!! Strike, Shoot, Clinch Dustin not only can avoid it but he can also DESTROY it with techniques that have not been see before in MMA.
This is not something we have seen before in the UFC, Bellator or any other MMA competition. In my opinion Dustin is really into a new art or at least a new way of doing MMA. Usually we see MMA competitors coming from a Boxing, Wrestling or BJJ background where they kind of favor one of those 3 areas and supplement their skills with other things but really go back to their base for most things.
This author is excited however because Dustin Alexander is the first fighter he has seen that is GREAT IN ALL. A great striker, great shooter/wrestler, great BJJ and has this unique Counter Offense skill in all areas that literally destroys the best of what the other fighter has to offer.
It really is a different skill level of MMA. I am very excited to see Dustin fight and I wish him and Mr. Sachetti all of the best on December 7th.
