Career Update

So after a disappointing loss to Brett Ewing in December I decided to cut to 135. I realized I can't give up size to guys anymore, I could do it earlier in my career but now that I am fighting the top amateurs I have to go to my optimal weight class. The fight against Ewing really showed me that, he was bigger and superior at wrestling and held me down for five rounds.

Made my debut at 135 pounds friday night and fought for the First Strike Combat 135 pound title against undefeated Cornelius Godfrey(7-0, all fights finished in first round). I won a split decision, an absolute war. Got fight of the night, the belt, and free WEC tickets (which was awesome) and most importantly the fight was fun to watch, and not a snoozer as I dont care about winning and losing, but I must have good fights.

Just a little update, sorry no video, im gonna try to track it down then i will post it. My most entertaining fight yet I think it was really fun and Cornelius really gave me a great fight and made me a better fighter.
Here are a couple picks from the weekend.

Congrats Man, I wish they had ammy titles out here for us to fight for but no one sticks around in the amatures that long, my gym only has us do 4 or 5 then its right into the Pros...

yeah thats how a lot of guys are here too. 5 fights then pro. Im young though and i want to make sure im ready, my bjj needs to come up some and I want to get acclimated to 135 before i go pro, im looking at 2-5 more ammy fights before i go pro(i have 11 so far)

WEC debut will hopefully be about 3 years from now lol
