    “In competitive situations other than boxing, rope-a-dope is used to describe strategies in which one party purposely puts itself in what appears to be a losing position, attempting thereby to become the eventual victor.”

    So, maybe it’s a combination. First the rope-a-dope, then the jiu-jitsu of using the opponent’s force against them so they go sailing off the cliff?
