nice fight! that first round was questionable, the second round you OWNED (gator roll was perfect, how did he get out?), third he knew he was in trouble so he pressed hard, then about 1 minute in you just took the will to fight from him and OWNED one more time! (i saw you looking for the arm bar from the mount for the last 30 seconds or so, which is good because you were looking for the finish even though you had already won it; killer instinct!)
a 29-28 victory for you from my personal score card.

Some Bay State Pride for you from the other side of the state!

next time you got a match let me know and i'll get me and my crew to go east to support you!

As biased as I am, I too think that's a solid mix. Sanda has pretty decent striking, but the hands generally suck. Boxing is the solution to that. What's great about Sanda, is that you get really good at catching kicks and using takedowns as counters to strikes. While a Sanda fighter's double leg is nothing to write home about compared to, say, a wrestlers, people aren't ready for those kick-catch takedowns. (I wish that I was better at those, so I could've used it in my last fight.) And of course the submission grappling gives you something to do after that takedown.

Btw, what persuasion of bands do you intend to fill my wagon with? Musical, rubber, or some other kind?



If you want to be good at subs and sweeps, do BJJ. To get off your back, put in some time with wrestlers. There's usually people who crosstrain in wrestling at BJJ schools. What's freestyle striking? Muay Thai practices punches, kicks, elbows, and knees.

Either way, just get into a gym. It doesn't matter what you train, so much as whether or not you train. As long as they do hard sparring and live drilling, you'll be fine.



Thanks! Local pros around here can get paid between $400 to several thousand dollars. I'm still an amateur, though, so I don't get paid anything for fighting. What I do, however, is sell lots of tickets since I make 15% of each ticket I sell. I made 320 from ticket sales in this fight, and I've heard of fighters making up to 1000 from selling tickets. Also, you can try to get small-time sponsors who'll throw you around 100 bucks or so to fight with their clothing. The shorts I was wearing were made by a company that sponsors me.

www.warhawkfightwear.com

They've got some awesome stuff. I like how it's well-designed and not cluttered/over the top.

I'm also sponsored by www.butchershopfightgear.com, though they were banned from that event, so I didn't really get anything from them for fighting.

At first I thought it was silly how some guys hustled so hard for sponsors as just an amateur, but I'm starting to appreciate it since grappling tournaments, gear, and traveling isn't exactly cheap. Yet, it's really tough to improve without making use of those things.

Oh, and I've been training MMA for 3 years. I've been doing various martial arts since I was 9 (so that's like 11 years now), but I was such a weekend warrior that it hasn't really paid off that much. I only trained once or twice a week, and in a lot of styles that weren't relevant to MMA (ie: ninjutsu, kenjutsu, german swordsmanship, kali, aikido, TKD). Boxing was probably the most productive training I did prior to finding my MMA gym, but again, only once a week.

Looking back, I wish I did more boxing and/or Judo when I was younger, or that I wrestled in HS or something.

Hahah that's a go-to for Sanda guys, though. I actually used to be really good at that myself, but I stopped practicing it for reasons unknown to me and it's no longer instinctual.

Thanks man, I appreciate that a lot! I'll be sure to let you know next time anything is happening!

As for the gator roll, I have no idea how I messed that up. I was really bummed too, since I had been working the anaconda choke a ton in training.

Uhhh... Trust me, Chris Leben is NOT someone you want to emulate technique-wise. He gets by almost entirely on being a super-tough son of a bitch and being able to hit really hard.
