When you train and fight with a professional fighter, it's clean. You know what's going on. A professional fighter will not make a silly move. He is trained to fight. If it is in a fighting competition, a fighter has to follow the rules to keep fighting, otherwise, he will be disqualified.
When you fight on the street, it is not nice and clean. You might see fight nice and clean in movies. They are fighting for a long time but you do not see any blood. That's possible in movies.
A professional fight's mindset to fight is different than a random dude on the street. If you are being attacked on the street, most of the time, the attacker does not know what he is doing. He throws punches and swings his hands to hit you.
It is like a wild fight. This is what you usually face on the street. So you need to train to face attacks like that. Probably you will never face this in a fighting competition.
The attacker only moves forward to attack you. You can see continuous punches. If you try to block, you might end up getting hit eventually. It is better to defend and counter-attack instantly. If you keep blocking, the attacker will keep attacking.
Even when you block, make sure that the attacker gets hurt. You can hit hard when you block. Probably you use the elbow to strike, You can use your elbow to block and defend. If the attacker contacts on your elbow, he will get hurt pretty bad.
You can move and make the distance as a defense. If you get in, you have to strike or you can grab and lock. In some situations, you will find grabbing and locking techniques very useful. Do not try to do something fancy. And don't do something to show off. The thing is, the situation can change at any moment. if you get the opportunity to leave, just leave.
