    My advice under these two conditions is to keep moving, keep your distance, and to use stop/push kicks to his thigh or hips to maintain distance (only as needed), until you can take him to the ground and subdue him as quickly as possible.

    I agree with the folks who are basically saying to stay off the end of his strikes. That is a range that won't do you any good.
    Also, I would work the angles like crazy. Straight in and out is hazardous to your health. Move right or left and end up slightly behind his ribs. You can work in strikes from there and keep moving to get out of range. This is one of my all time favorite tactics when fighting a larger opponent.

    Anytime you fight someone bigger and stronger than yourself, you're at a disadvantage. You need to be better than he is in almost every respect to win.

    So how do you beat a bigger opponent? You need to be better than the bigger opponent.
