    I hate being small :(

    This guy was by far the strongest person I've ever felt. Super athletic and very nice. But like all new big guys was pretty keen on using his strength. Putting him on his back was impossible. I got him in an arm bar from guard and he fucking CURLED ME. Shruged out out of my triangle. He cross faced me into tapping a few times and actually got my back and choked me with one god damn arm(I was controlling the other one).

    One of the other guys in class finally took his back and choked him.

    I feel like I got in a friggin' car wreck today. Everything hurts. It was scary how strong this guy was, felt like some super hero or something. I have no doubts he could just grab my arm and break it.

    Guys like him are the reason shotguns were invented :squint:

    Don't they have multiple styles of wrestling in the Olympics?

    Maybe this is the feeling Hillary bitches about all the time. It was so frustrating. He just moved me where he wanted me.

    Welcome to my world. Everybody does that shit to me. I've been 'bench pressed' out of side control.

    Poor little guy. Sometimes it's nice being fat.

    The other day in CSW - they pair me up with a BIG guy. He's like 6'0 but he's probably a SOLID 240ish.. Real muscular.. So we're running over drills together and I shit you not, this nga says "It's nice training with a big guy every once in a while - we should train together more often. I'm sick of all those small guys"

    :rofl::rofl:

    I was like "dude, I'm 5'9" and 180" :ugh:

    No shit sherlock.

    Bascially, he just lifts weights. Lets not over complicate this.

    We have a guy that just joined that's 6'0" and 220, and fairly solid. He just lays on me in side control until I finally can't breathe and tap. :hs:

    He nearly Rampage slammed me when I tried to triangle him once.

    At my old school, we had a cop who was in the 6'3"/230 range. I got an armbar on him from guard and he stood up with me hanging on his arm.

    It got stormy but nothing bad. Nothing like Katrina. I live right under Memphis and Katrina hit us with sustained 40 MPH winds with gusts up to 60. It was nuts.

    What I was trying to convey was that he actively competes in weight lifting competitions and not just some meat head that goes to the gym to look good at the beach.

    Oly lifts focus on speed, strength, and explosiveness. These traits should blend very nicely with the various aspects of MMA.

    This thread makes me smile.....I happen to be one of the big guys..... :)
    It is frustrating though when your strength runs out and you get exhausted and get tapped by someone 5'10" 180 pounds......At least it makes me remember to not Ragnorok out of a submission and use what I have learned.
