Well as some of you know i competed in the 2008 California Pankration State Championship this past Sunday. I just thought i would let you all know what went down. First off i get there on Saturday and weighed in that night, i was competing in the Flyweight weightclass (115 and under) and i weighed in at 110 pounds.
Well for the first match i got a Bye which means you automatically advance without fighting, i think everyone in my weight got a first round bye.
In my second fight (My first actual fight of the night) i won in 17 seconds. After about 10 seconds i could tell he didnt want to fight anymore, and i was already winning 7 points to 0, and then i ended up sinking in a rear naked choke and choking him out for the win.
For my third match my opponent backed out of the fight and left the tournament, im not sure if it was because. he didnt want to fight, or if something happened or what but i was a bit upset because i was expecting three fights.
And for the Championship match i won in 55 seconds by submission (Guillotine Choke). I landed a pretty huge slam right off the bat that made the crowd roar. Anyway i will try to get videos up later on when i get them for those who want to see.
Overall the whole experience was amazing. This was my first competition and i have only been training for three to five months. I will be going to the US Pankration National tournament this summer and i will keep you all posted. Like i said i will try to get the vid's posted later, all 72 seconds of them haha.
