Dont know how to take this.

This has been bothering me all day. Yesterday I was at my gym rolling and going through some drills with this guy. He is about 6'3" 250 and pretty solid and Im 5'11" and 215 (you can look at my profile pic to see how im built) ....Anyway he has some pretty solid BJJ so he had the advantage most of the time but I pulled guard a lot and did some good sweeps. When I got the mount he had a really hard time sweeping me . Afterwards he said "good job" "Your stronger than you look"....I dont know why its bothering me but I just had to get other opinions about it.....

I think it was a compliment. Many people are deceptively strong, regardless of their appearance. I don't think he was suggesting that you look like a wuss or anything like that.

ehhh i think he didn't want to judge the way you're built as being a small dude for 215 lb, he was probably refering to something like "you did well for a smaller dude" (compared to his size, not yours) ... get the point? he's 250 and you're 215 and that's alot of difference in any sport and if you did good no doubt the guy will give you a compliment (unless he's a douchebag lol) and i think that's what this is all about, a big misunderstanding...and no offense dude but i don't think you should get upset over things like that even if he did mean the bad way which i don't think he did, you shouldn't react like you did..i would understand an attitude like that from a kid but you're a grown man so it's kinda dumb to worry about pointless things like that or you gonna have weak mind forever which aint good in any way, not for you and not for people near you..just let it go next time cus you know, if everyone would care about that kind of tiny problems so much we would kill eachother long time ago hehe...peace n luv!

I didnt say I had a problem with it I just didnt know how to take it....And I didnt "react" to anything I was asking an opinion If I was quick to assume something I would have said I was pissed.

yeah it sounds like he meant it as a compliment even if you did not take it that way

I'm a smaller guy and anytime someone says that to me, I cant help but to smile. It means that they assumed something that was wrong. In MMA you always want your opponent to be caught off guard. Just sayin...
