    Big event in MS. Told the promoter that I'm good from 155-170. He will call me this week with more details on possible opponents.

    It will be in a cage, they are hoping for a big crowd. A few pro fights.

    I'm stoked.

    And I still haven't heard from Tony's promoter.

    Don't back down Tony. Don't back down :squint:

    Everyone cares when I want to fight someone that might break my arm.

    I fight some random guy I could actually beat and no one does :(

    Not yet, he is looking to pair me up this week and give me a call.

    First fight in over a year where I will be in shape :mamoru:

    I think like the last 3 have been under 24 hours notice, one I was still hung over for, and all because I needed some money.

    I've also dropped my last 3, go figure. :hs:

    haha, nope.

    I will be in shape for this fight.

    I'm considering a straight gym switch to this new place, I haven't decided yet.

    It would save me $90 bucks a month and I get better training.

    No straight BJJ coach, but lots of the guys there do BJJ that I will be working with. But its a good MMA environment. I'm actually being taught wrestling, not just being shown a take down. I'm being taught footwork instead of how to throw a punch, etc...

    Its a good place for me to be I think.

    Is the guy you are fighting black? Lulz that would be great if the promoter was in the cage and called Tony.

    Still love my old gym. My old trainer will probably corner me for this fight.

    Had a great training session last night. Will update my training log today at work.
