Nice try jdun hang in there you'll figure that guilotine problem out soon enough. You need to have someone tape your fights and put them on YouTube for us all to see. Or do you already do that? Win or lose I'd still like to see ya fight. Better luck next time and don't let it get to you, you're not the best...yet...

By the way have you tried taping yourself in training going for your doubles and singles? If not, you might be able to figure out what you're doing wrong easier by doing that. Have your partner stand right in front of you in his stance with the camera facing your sides and just do you double or single the way you normally would but slow it down a little and do it several times trying to do it the way you feel is natural and have your partner do a basic guilotine maneuver on you or maybe a couple different ways each time if you're leaving a HUGE opening, and watch yourself on tape afterwards and change something up and try again. If anyone can figure out what you're doing wrong, it's you. But if you've already tried doing this then nevermind haha.

Keep your chin up dude, it takes serious gonads to take a fight on that short a notice. It sounds like you know what went wrong, just keep working on your game and the same thing will not happen again. :thumbsup:

Good Job man! I am not a fighter, but I know it is tough to take a fight with that short of notice. You sound like you did quite well, and may have ended with better results if you didn't gas. Congrats!:thumbsup:

im gonna see if I get can get a video of the fight, but im not sure if the 30 people in attendance had a camera :laugh: ..nah but serious, thanks for the support guys..im still working on my guilloitine defense, but i was really gassed and the straight jab caught me right on the chin...i had no business going for the takedown, but it was just a reflex..i was in danger of being ko'd and i had to do my best to recover..i dunno if this was a sanctioned event or even if it was legal, so im unsure if its gonna go on my record..imagine if my name goes on the Sherdog fight finder..id sh*t my pants
