assuming you're the white bloke then you did good on your fitness proving again that its not how you start but how you finish
the other chap certainly blew his load in the first round.
If one might offer a tad piece of advise - you're too upright when you fight.
Good fitness and tenacity well done.
To paraphrase Fred Dagg - the views expressed in this post are bloody good ones.
took a lot of training to get me to keep my posture when I fight. The reason he was getting takedowns is because I let him back me up against the cage. I don't think it was too bad for my first fight. It took about half the round to get my bearings.
Ammy fighters don't get paid here, so it's a very expensive hobby
I do it for several reasons. I got into it on my way to getting healthy and losing weight. I think when it started I had a lot to prove. Now it's just testing myself and my training more than anything. Pride and the competition are two good reasons , yeah.
yes, but when I started gaining position he just stood back up. And then he wouldn't come in and attack, but he wouldn't let me up either. That is a good tactic I guess, unless there is a crowd there and a time limit.
Not taking anything away from him. I appreciate him competing and being an athlete, and it wasn't easy. I was just commenting.
I agree with Rage, it looks like around the 5 minute mark of the video, the punches caught up with him. I thought at 4:58 you were going to just finish him coming out of that little grapple, you just did it a minute later. If he improves his conditioning, he's going to give you a tougher fight next time. That body slam he put on you was pretty crazy looking though.
That depends on how you look at it. He did do some flashy slams, but he was not able to get the position on me after he got me down. After a minute when I started gaining position he let go and stood up. He was definately getting the points if it went to decision, however I don't feel like I lost control at any point other than when I was getting slammed. If he stayed down with me, I feel like I would have done ok, though it's hard to tell cause the fight didn't go that way. Anything I could say would just be guessing based on what happened.
Either way, I won't take so long getting my feet down next time. Was a good first fight. I wanted to strike with him, and that's what we ended up doing.
If it moves, compile it
