again thanks for the feedback. you guys have been every helpful.
on the topic of me competeing, most have agreed with wallysworlds191, saying that i should train longer. when i said i will be competeing soon in a am contest, soon is the wrong word to use, i still have about 6 months. but i sure ill be ready by then, i did 3 years of high school wrestling and submissions come easy to me.other people have trained for less amounts of time and won.
my friend fought in his first cage match at 6 months and won. Ryan "Darth" Bader train for only a year with a wrestling backround and is now up for a 100000 contract.
i train 3 times a week and life 4 times a week. so i think i train enough, but im not sure.
