    I got third place in adult purple light. kind of a bittersweet experience.

    first match i went against a guy from rickson. He went on to win first place... He felt like a ton of bricks. He passed my guard, put his knee on my belly. Won 5-0. I went for a desperate toe hold from my x-guard, but just couldn't get it.


    second match, i went against an AWESOME guy. I got a nice footlock, and he tapped. Apparently that was his bad ankle. Lucky for me, but I think he would have beaten me 9/10 times. When I saw his first match, I thought he was going to win the whole division.

    Last match, I went against a guy from rigan machado. I had gone against him two years prior as a blue belt. I beat him back then by a ref's decision after a total of ten minutes of fighting. Was the hardest match of my life. This time I felt a little more comfortable, and swept him from my butterfly guard. We went back and forth, and I arm-dragged him hard with about 2:30 left. We clashed heads ala nog/fedor 2... opened up a big cut on him. I was up 2-0, but I still feel like I cheated the guy out of a good match. So I gave him my medal.


    bittersweet, but oh well =/
