I just heard that i 'might' be getting matched up for my first MMA fight in may.... the guy i am possibly fighting is a guy who came to our gym for 1 or 2 sparring sessions last month and got dropped 4-5 times in both sessions (twice by me).

I have 2 problems with this.

1 - What do i have to gain from fighting a guy who is laughed at in our gym and has been knocked out in the 1st round in his last 3 fights. What if he catches me with a lucky shot and i go down?

2 - Ive said for months that i had no intention of fighting as i dont have time to train properly for it, as i have a young daughter, who i'm not overly keen on spending lots of time away from.

However, my coach has been giving me loads of good feedback on my striking recently and he want's me to fight.

At least you would get some experience inside the cage, get to deal with all the anxiety, weight cutting and such.

that's the other side of the argument.

• I get to fight a guy i KNOW i can beat, and most probably knock out.

• I get to fight, infront of my friends and family

• I probably will never get round to competing if i don't just do it.


I wouldn't underestimate him and i would train my ass off as if i was training to fight GSP.

How long has it been since you seen this guy train?? Thats a big question. I would take it but I would be careful. You know him but he knows you.

And Hit that is a hell of a drive!!

2 months ago maybe?

he doesnt really train, he just turns up to fight as far as i know. He has another fight in february and i'll be able to see if he is any better then.

to be honest, even if he has trained every week i'd still be confident of beating him.

Take the fight buddy, I have seen so many time people put off fighting "to train a bit more" and then they never end up doing it. Worse come to worst you get ammy experience and can learn your stregnths and weaknesses.

This. Doesn't matter even if you do lose. It's an ammy fight and won't even show up on your record.
