Kajan put up awesome performance. Props to him.

I have my first mma amateur fight on 5th December. I hope that I will come close to your results
Wicked! Congrats on taking the leap! Make sure you have someone filming it so we can all see it. Don't count on getting video from the promotion, I have yet to see any of mine!

Get 'em!

Taking the day off, sorry world, I'm making a judgement call.

Tomorrow's the last of my 8 day work stretch, it's going to be weird waking up after 6.

You have to take a day off once in awhile man, it is unhealthy to do otherwise :P

Yep, it just sucks a little when those days aren't the ones you've allotted for rest.


No Gi with Bruno. Technique was arm drags from butterfly guard, then added taking the back, then added when you arm drag they pop their knee to block the back take - you wrestler grip the upped leg and the dragged arm then use your far butterfly hook to launch them over you. Then we worked omoplate variations.

In rolling I tried to be smarter, more relaxed and more active and did much better. All tough rolls, had a pretty neutral back and forth with a guy that's always been competitive. Faced my white belt nemesis and had another neutral roll, caught him with an open guard sweep against him standing and got on top. Last round was a long one with Kultar, and we spent alot of time in eachothers guards neutralizing eachother. I got props when I landed my kimura bump sweep on him, but didn't hold mount long. He also blasted me from his guard with his legs kicking off my chest, no joke I was on my knees and all 200lbs of me left the ground. Kultar was the only submission I saw tonight, he took my neck in the turtle and locked on a choke that I shouldn't have tapped to so fast- he didn't have his hooks in and I could have fought it.

Elbow feels a bit sore but much better than last time.

My 8 day stretch of work finished today. I'm hanging by a thread on just quitting the ******* job.

Finally a day off work. Did 3 rounds of pads before doing BJJ class. I didn't exactly grasp the technique today so I'm not even going to try to describe it. In rolling first round I got a white belt to toy with. Got a nice reverse scissor sweep, finished with an arm triangle and a triangle. Then rolled a top blue belt, pretty back and forth but I found myself in a tight omoplata that he eventually finished. Last round was with Dream Featherweight Champ Bibiano Fernandes. "Today I will see you" he says to me before we roll. That could be interpreted a few ways. He was all over me and finished with an armbar. We kept going with him attacking and me barely defending, triangles, armbars, I finally survived the round with my lips smashed up and my nose bleeding.

Got to train with Blake "The Snake" Fredrickson, who runs our amateur team nowadays. I haven't worked with him in the past because I wasn't getting out to Langley often and because he usually runs his session on saturdays. Having this saturday off I got a chance to give it a go.

He had us shadowbox a round in our opposite stance to get us out of our comfort zone, then we drilled a couple combos with partners. First was 1-2 stepping off the side with the 2, lifting leg up as you superman jab, then step out into a left kick to their leg. Second one was double jab, switch stance on the third to make it a right cross, step off for a left leg kick. Awkward combos but pretty neat.

Then we did 4 minute rounds MMA sparring in full gear. I met the guy that my opponent beat last, and he was nearest my size so I worked with him the most. I did my best to keep it standing, tagging him plenty from outside his range, working lots of punch and kick combos. He would eventually get me against the cage where we'd struggle and I'd either reverse out and break off or he'd take me down. On the ground I kept his posture broken pretty easily and landed decently from the bottom, but with boxing gloves and shin guards its hard to work sweeps and submissions. I did manage to get a foot to his chest when he postured and blasted him off of me. I did two rounds with him and felt pretty good. He bailed on a takedown and I ended up on top half guard, kept him flattened out and pounded until he eventually reguarded, he tried an armbar that I pulled out of and worked to pass but he rolled to a turtle. I tried to move around to take back but he attacked a single leg well and took me down to guard to finish the second round. Then I got to work with two other guys that were a bit smaller than me. I did well using my range once again, funny how I haven't sparred or done much muay thai but I instinctively went to the same combos that I always used to do. Both guys did eventually take me down, but both had a tough time getting any posture, and one I swept into mount and ended the round pounding from his back. Good class!

Talked a bit with the guy that lost to my opponent. He said he has some crappy quality video of the fight that I could see, which will be nice because I've only found one round on youtube of my opponents first fight, which apparently he has improved on alot since. Also learned a few other things, he's about 6'2 and cuts to 190 from 210, so big dude doing a big weight cut. I'm not dieting down any further. He seems to prefer to be on the ground, but isn't very great off his back. The guy I was trainig with today said he controlled and won the first round, and our opponent came out in the second and threw a head kick right away to try to put it away. I'll have to be wary of things like that.

Overall I feel pretty good that I got to train with my opponents last opponent and didn't feel out of my league at all. Great week for training! Right elbow is aching but everything else feels phenomenal, I keep this up and I'll be set for a great performance on January 15th.

UFC tonight! I entered a 25$ MMA pool at MMA Madhouse I always liked doing fantasy mma betting so a cheap little pool makes these events a little more interesting to watch. Plus its probably a good idea to build relationships with online media. Plus, I can win a couple hundred $$$, if you click through the link you'll see I'm currently tied for first after the first event (I'm revolution).

Sweet rest now and back to work.

Phew, good first day back. Did 3 hours today. No Gi advanced, No Gi beginners, and Boxing. I've been much busier and smarter in rolling recently. Bruno's been keeping an eye on me and I try my best to stay out of closed guard. Today I was making open guard work decently. I hit two sweeps and did well preventing a pass against a tough roll. I'll keep working on it. I got submitted with a triangle by a small and really skilled guy I've never trained with before. I thought he was a noob when I was working with him, until I rolled him and he was at a purple or brown belt level. God he felt strong. Got a couple submissions in other rolls an armbar from triangle and one or two others that I forget.

Two days off again so I'll be looking to get some extra training in.

MMA Class

Practiced back and forth takedowns. Kajan came over to show a double leg variation, as you go in you step around their back leg to block them from stepping back and pull the legs out as usual. Praciced some takedown defense technique and then sparred one guy trying to takedown and the other guy defending. I defended all the takedowns but had problems taking other people down, only successful when I pinned them against a wall. Then we did some muay thai shadowboxing and practice kicking with partners.

Muay Thai

Run, skipping, walking with knees, geared up and drilled combos for most of class. Finished with clinch sparring.

Weekly weight check, bottom one is this week.

204lbs 11.1% bf
198lbs 10.7% bf
198lbs 9.9% bf

Basically my goal is to stay here until the fight and do the rest via water cut. Of course if bodyfat keeps dropping that doesn't hurt.
