Three litres of water today, I'll weigh myself at the end of the day but I have a feeling there won't be much weight loss during today.

Went in for some warming up, shadowboxing, visualization. Weigh in is friday 4pm at the River Rock Casino. I'll get a few pics up that night.

Here's a video of my opponent, the only thing online. He's the bald one







Woke up at 195lbs today. Looks like it's another smooth cut, weigh ins tomorrow.

Only thing that video showed me is that his takedowns are EXTREMELY slow and are telegraphed and his JJ is horrible. You can beat this guy man.

The takedowns didn't seem too bad, he just needed to set it up better. Flopping guard was a mistake. At this level however, people improve much between fights. I've heard he's a tough guy so I'll expect nothing less.

Weight cut went alright today. Woke up 194 on my digital scale. Took a poop and a pee and I was 193. No food or drink all day, went in to shadowbox and skip rope in a hoody and gi pants, lost about 2lbs, but realized that my scale was a 2lb difference than the gym scale. Wanting to be sure that I wasn't overweight, I went to the community center and sauna'd out another 2lbs or so pretty easily. Weighed in at 189.8. Opponent seems pretty game but once again it looks like I have a strong height advantage. Hopefully they put the weigh in pics up tonight.

Tomorrow I meet Kajan at 1 for some visualization and stuff to focus and get rid of some nervous energy. Then if time permits I'll drive to my hometown to drop in on the funeral. I'm at the Casino at 5pm for the last minute medical check, then I'll have an hour or two to relax. I think they gave me my hotel room so I might power nap it.

Agreed, expecially if that idiot pulls guard like it seems he does.

Only video I have so far. This is the first round. I'm red shorts.

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=57HhgSjlsMc&feature=player_embedded

Second round I walk straight into a right hand with my hands down like some kind of asshhole at the very start and eat it hard, stumble around stunned and get taken down against the fence. Guy barely hits me and the fight is called.


I'm not too bummed. This too shall pass is right. I'm a little frustrated that I tend to just walk straight into guys. Why the hell can't I use my reach? I get insane tunnel vision in fights and don't perform near my ability.
