First Fight(s) Coming Up May 30th!
So, after months of searching around for somewhere to fight, I've finally got a match lined up. Or rather, a series of matches. Or rather, two series' of matches.
I'll be fighting at a charity event downstate. They're holding three tournament-style competitions, one in MMA, one in kickboxing, and one in submission grappling. I'll definitely be entering in the kickboxing competition, and I'm probably going to enter into the MMA competition too, despite my entire grappling experience consisting of two years of wrestling and my having absolutely no jits whatsoever. I figure I'll just knock them out before it even gets to the ground.
Now all I have to do is buy my competition gear and I'll be all set. Does anyone have recommendations for good shorts? I've just been using an old TKD gi bottom for the past year and a half, since I'm too cheap to buy a new pair of $60 shorts.
"I don't want them to like me, because when I'm in the ring, punches fly to the face. It is not a tenderness time. I am not falling in love. And he knows that when the fight starts I am kicking faces."
