    any one run into this weird phenomenon. I know a couple of guys that are gym heroes. They will come to the gym and dominate some one on the mat or completely own some one in stand up. Every one knows the guy is insane and a really good fighter but when it comes time to fight they never produce. So they are ungodly in the gym and sub par in a fight.

    That is a thing without a statement or a prompt for a response. What the fuck kind of post is this?

    Yeah, I know a few. Its all mental. Some guys are exactly the opposite...they look like shit in the gym, but always seem to rise to the occasion when its game time.

    I had one of my buddies call me drunk after one of my fights.

    "dude, that was a good fight...i mean, sometimes I don't really think your that good, like in the gym your just kinda so-so, but you always like pull a submission out of your ass and win fights you shouldn't. Good job!"

    I texted him back "thanks...?"

    My stuff involved this young guy. He's about 6'2", lanky, and has the worst white trash stache I've ever seen. The real whispy blonde one that makes people look like a rat. I came to find out later he's 16 years old.

    I swear I had met him before (he trains at an affiliate school) and he told me he had been training about 18 months. He's got a blue belt on with 3 stripes on it, so I was kind of curious how much he trained, how good he is, etc, for 18 months in.

    I rolled with this kid in class and he fucking kills me. Two VERY deep triangles in 5 minutes. I felt like a huge chump.

    I saw him agian at one of our tournaments where he lost to a kid I had destroyed at prior tourneys. I found out later he'd been training almost 5 years from my instructor.

    :rofl:
