    Well I learned so much I couldn't even begin to put it into words. First and foremost this shit is fucking hard. As good of shape as I thought I was in, I needed to be in 10x better shape. Now that I know that I will adjust my training. Secondly, my worst nightmare came true and I went all 3 rounds with my opponent. He was a championship wrestler and spent the entire fight coming straight forward and clinching which totally fucked up my striking because I had to back away as I was throwing.

    So cliffs: 1st round I low kick him hard as fuck right out of the gate, we clinch and spend most of the round fighting for a takedown. 2nd round I blast him with a rt cross and an uppercut on his way in, we clinch and I execute a head and arm takedown into a scarf hold. I armbar him and feel his arm popping and stop b/c i guess I wasn't prepared to break that shit...in training I am used to people tapping. This guy was tuff as shit and had a head like a brick. Anyway he backdoors the scarf hold, (mainly b/c I let off the armbar) and he takes my back for the next 30 seconds I stall and conserve my energy while he tries to free his hands from my COC grip:naughty:.

    3rd round, I leg kick and hit him with everything and he is out on his feet, bleeding like a motherfucker....bell rings. I win by unanimous decision. People say I did well, he was not the type of fighter it is easy to look good against...all he wanted to do was tie up, and he was strong an good at it so I spent mos of my time trying to create distance and strike. I wish the last round would have been longer, but at the same time, a win is a win. This guy was tuff and had more experience than me so I'll take it. I know I need to get in better shape, I will probably drop to about 250 for my next fight in November.

    Pics will be here tomorrow, and video eventually (I have to record it on TV, I don't have any digi vid of the fight.).

    I couldn't have broken his arm either, the sound of bones breaking is one of the worst sounds ever and you never forget it.

    Shit, that sounds awesome, congrats on the win. Hard for a striker to beat a grappler sometimes when their only goal is to tie up and go for takedowns, but sounds like besides the clinching and the reverse he couldnt get any damage done.

    Gonna watch boiling point tonight?

    Dude that is far too kick ass. Sounds like you did what you needed to do, some guys you ain't gonna get the KO.

    In for vid.

    congratulations man, i was curious as to how it would go. Out of curiousity, what's the atmosphere like at these fights? Do big crowds come out? Was it in a cage or octagon like on ufc?

    For the most part it depends who is sponsoring it and what the venue is. I went to the Ironheart Crown last year and there were quite a few people there but it was no where near full (huge ass highschool gym with seating on two floors). Another one I went to was in a much smaller venue but it was packed to the brim with people. Most of the people are pretty friendly but then there is always the few people who just want to see blood and guts and don't understand what the fuck is going on other than that.

    thanks guys, I just know now that for the time being I need to focus on muscular endurance more than anything else...I am going to be doing a lot more medley and oly complex work for time. I am probably going to add some grappling into my medley work to make it more specific because I got a big guy that wants to start training with me in the hell hole garage.

    It was just a local show, about 2500 people showed up, it will air on tv a couple times....nothing special. I plan on fighting again in November so i will have some time to get down to the new target wihich is about 250.
