    Ok, I have no fights under my belt, and limited experience, so take these with a grain of salt.

    1. More leg kicks. The guy lunged in on all of his jabs at the beginning. An inside leg kick to his lead leg as he came in woulda made him drop flat on his face or turned him sideways and set you up for something nicer.

    2. You seem to like the clinch and have little problems getting into it. But in punching range, your chin is high. That didn't seem to be a problem for most of this fight cause you slipped most of his punches.

    I never feel comfortable with my chin that high in punch range and glue it to my chest, especially when I get tired and my mouth starts to open up. It looks like the blow that stunned you was to the side of the jaw, and it might have been averted had you been tucked in.

    Thats pretty much it cause really it looked like you were getting the better of him the whole fight.

    I'll say this, you were dong quite well and the reason you got caught is cause you bull rushed in and he just simply side stepped you and countered.

    small controlled movements are the primary way to go I only burst in on sure things but even then just in case of an evasive manuver you need to have something planned.

    Not a bd fight at all. You got nothin to be ashamed of.

    Thanks dude. Yeah, I definitely came in a little too hard, and with my guard down. I tend to always move forward, its just instinct...gotta work on having more control.

    Thanks. The first one I just muscled him down, no technique whatsoever. I let him get back up thinkin I could pin him against the cage and hit him with knees...didn't quite work out for me. The second time the takedown was good but I shoulda passed his guard immediately:hs:

    Wrestled in junior high but quit before high school (huge mistake). About a year and a half ago I started training kickboxing/nogi grappling off and on...probably 1 year of training pretty consistently if you subtract all the gaps in between. Last 6 months or so I've been training with a much better team, and I've made a lot of improvement.

    Yeah, I know about the hands:o My cardio was actually great leading up to this fight...I was sparring 5/5's like it was nothing, rolling forever, etc...I got a sinus infection a week and a half out and missed a week of training. The problem was my breathing more than my cardio...my nose was a little stuffed up still and I couldn't breath that well. Notice between rounds I looked fine, I just wasn't breathing.

    Great fight, nothing to be ashamed of!

    I wish could fight in a cage..lucky. They always use rings around here.

    That looked like a nice promotion.

    When is your next fight?

    Thanks. Yeah, the cage is pretty cool and I got no complaints about GC, they've been doing it for a long time and know how to run their shows. I'm hoping to fight again in May in GC but we'll see.

    Theres a new show in Lemoore (20 minutes from my house) that I'd really like to fight in. Palace Fighting Championships, its run by the Events Manager at the Tachi Palace (old WEC venue)...they pay a lot better and just put on a better show. They've got Wes Sims and Scott Smith fighting on their upcoming (March 22) show. They have a lot fewer fights per card than GC tho so its harder to get a fight.
