    Its a smaller show in Memphis where I originally started fighting. Nothing really fancy but I miss it, I fought there 7 times.

    Its been over a year since I've fought and I'm dying.

    I can't wait.

    Laney is probably going to end up shooting the video/pictures for the event. They never have anyone to do it and she has all the equipment and wants to make some money.

    $3 per printed picture(she will host them watermarked on Flickr) and $10 for an edited DVD.

    Its in Memphis....so there is like a 93% chance it will be :run:

    The level of competition isn't normally really high here, honestly I chose it as kind of a tune up fight. Not that I'm taking it lightly, but I'm a year out of fighting and and coming off an injury. Plus I'm not even with a proper school anymore, just training with the Ole Miss BJJ club on campus.

    But since Hillary will be cornering me, I can't lose :x:

    Shes famous, people will be intimidated, having Hillary corner you is like having Randy corner you.
     
  6. I'd like to "corner" Hillary.

    Also, sounds like you're taking it lightly. Sleep soundly.

    Not taking it lightly at all. I would rather go in and dominate rather than go in and scrape by.

    Yep, Dr. told me 2 weeks after the pin came out it will be stronger than it was before. Feels fine now. 2 months will be no problem at all.

    How much do you get if you win? Or better yet, do you get anything for even showing up?

    Then you could demand like 50 mil and sit out for several years.

    To small of an event for that.

    I'm not really a "pro" fighter. I have been paid, but in states where there is no athletic commission and they pay all the fighters on a card.

    Eat a lot of calcium between now and then so your hand doesn't break again.

    Its catching up lately.

    And honestly I kind of want to just stand and trade. After my 4th fight where I got clipped and dropped hard(didn't lose) I've had an aversion to it. Its a stupid mental block that is killing me as a viable low level pro fighter.

    So I'm just gonna keep telling my self "win it or lose it on your feet".

    might not be such a bad strategy :dunno: it's so easy to catch guys/get caught in lower level MMA especially in the stand up. i've seen plenty of guys win fights just because they were the first to really push forward aggressively and throw hard not necessarily because they were the better striker.

    I was disappointed when I found out the pin wasn't going to be permanent.

    I wanted to stay a cyborg :(

    If I could just get one TKO/KO finish I think it would really up my confidence in my self. Ive only ever been rocked really bad 2 times and both were really freakin good solid shots. I think I have a half way decent chin...I just don't want to get caught. I'm not even afraid of the pain, just losing because of it.

    I won't let the cage crew down.

    I'll either win, or lose in a spectacular highlight real KO.
