Hey all, havent been around too much been working alot and stuff. Just thought id update you all, I just competed in Fresno this passed saturday and have a couple videos. I only had 2 fights and ended up taking 3rd. I hadnt really trained hard for about 4-5 months due to work and im out of shape in these videos, but i did good for what little training sessions i had. I fought in the 135lb division, but once again weighed only 115lbs, so there was a good weight difference between me and my opponents. First fight i won by TKO in 37 seconds, and the second fight i lost in the 3rd round via choke, after originally winning (and was placed in the finals) via DQ. The guy illegally slammed me and got DQed but then they made me go in and fight him again right after that. I ended up taking a knee to the face (illegal) and a shot to the nuts that shattered my cup (i have a picture of it, and should have been a 3rd DQ) but i did fine up until that point.So i pulled 3rd which i was fine with, but i would have liked my spot in the finals for sure. But its ok, it gave me motivation to get in there and train harder, it made me realize how well i can fight even out of shape and 20ls under, now im going on a mission to train hard, gain weight, and go pro in the next 6 months. So thats what im focusing on lately, good to be back here a bit, videos should be below so enjoy!First fighthttp://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wJqIBKQunQgSecond fight Round 1http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=LRusoBJX2toRound 2http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4au-At9ViOE&feature=relatedRound 3http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9Vbyp0BElIY&feature=related
Competed this passed Saturday (Video included)
Holy crap you're awesome D!!! So impressed
Do not take this as an insult, its not meant that way.
What the fuck was that about? why was anyone standing that long into a fight of pretty evenly matched people?
Its not boxing, no heavy gloves, no real KO moves bared from use.
I have alot of respect for anyone willing to step in the ring, or cage, or in this case on a mat, and trade punches with someone else.
The thing I notice alot when watching a MMA fight though is that there is a huge lul in action because the fighters are so heavy in one style and they do not know what to do when a proper move is not presented.
When your locked up high on the body (arms and shoulders) and using knees to the torso, why not use that knee to the side of the thigh instead?
and when people are watching my legs, Ill head butt the motehr fucker. when your tangled up try to throw them to the side, it does not matter if they are countering you and you can not throw them, thats what I want, they are focused on upper body and Ill rake my heel to the side of the knee, or crush my heel on the metatarsals of the foot.
Throw a right hook, or an upper cut to the jaw, follow through with the elbow.
When your tied up and can not do shit, jump in the air, bring the knees in to his chest, your on a mat, as he falls on top of you, pull backwards and stay in a ball, you can drive his head in to the ground and roll on top of him and unload combination's while he is trying to get his hands out to catch his fall and recover.
Do not tell me, or let anyone tell you, that what I said is not effective, or does not work. Iv been fucking people up for a long long time.
Saturday I went for a trip to recover some money my partner and I was owed for equipment we purchased, did not receive, and the fuckers sold it to someone else, told us to piss off but if we paid again they would find and sell us some other equipment.
I left two people in a field next to a warehouse bleeding and unable to stand up and it took about 15 seconds to put both of them there.
If your going to fight, you have to be fluid and always changing, you have to look for the opportunity to hit them, kick them, knee them, smash your forehead into a nose, follow the punch with the elbow to the eye socket, push them off balance, sweep the knee with the weight on it from the side and behind with a heel....
You do not create the opportunity to hurt them, you take advantage of the situation to accomplish the goal of a win.
Like i said before, this post is not meant as an insult, its meant to help you think like a fighter, not a boxer, not a judo master, mot a karate or kung foo master, like a fighter never waiting for the right set up and making the moves that present the chance for a KO.
Good luck in your future fights.
oh, and for the record?
Im 5'11" and just under 150 lbs. outside of when I was boxing, noone is ever my size, everyone is bigger and has weight over me, I still do not lose very god damned often, and more than half the time end up fighting more than one person at a time, THe shit I do WORKS, tested and approved on the street.
The thing that is difficult with Pankration is there is no head shots. Its like pre amateur mma. Im a striker, so not having head shots screws me over in a sense, if there were head shots allowed in that tournament, the kid i was kneeing wouldnt have a head anymore. Also, i have seen this kid fight in previous tournaments, he was the 135lb state champion when i was the 115lb state champion, and he is a wrestler. I knew all he wanted to do was take me down and lay on me for a decision, so i wanted to finish before that happened. I realized after the first or second exchange that he was afraid to strike with me, so i just waited for the opening. You see in the video that i through an inside kick to the knee that hurts him bad and makes him do a full spin, that was the opportunity i created, then i rushed in with the knees and overwhelmed him for a stoppage.
Thx Steph i appreciate it! Im looking to do amateur mma soon, i must have head shots :D! And Rad, i am in the black and green shorts the first fight, and black spandex the second.
No head shots?What the fuck?Even when I was 8 years old in boxing we were allowed head shots! We had head gear on but to outlaw head shots?
Back when you were a kid they also thought letting kids play in the chemicals under the sink would toughen them up.
I blame the move away from the ideals that died off after the 70's for the downfall of america today.I did most of my chemical experimentation in teh late 80s well ok the mid 80s.but when I was a kid you fucked up your dad busted your ass good!no time outs, real fucking consequences were paid, and we learned! If you want to sit down this week you better not throw apples at cars, lesson learned.My brother once threw a fit in a mall because he wanted a toy adn my dad said no.he threw a fit, my dad told him last chance to stop, he continued and with dozens of onlookers my brother got his ass beat, in the store, much to the amusement of the crowd. friday while getting some groceries my 6 year old pulled that shit over some cereal he wanted vs what mom said he could have, I asked him if he wanted to stop or if he wanted to go home, get his ass beat and spend the night in bed. I had people I never even met before threaten to call the police because i threatened my child. They did not however care to stick around when I offered to hit them instead. the rest of the people around moved quickly away when I asked what other mother fucker would care to be knocked out.people should mind their own fucking business and not worry about my child needing to be spanked and going to bed at 5 pm because he decided he could do what he wanted and dad had to reinforce that he could not.
Yup no head shots in Pankration. I have to do either a Pro or Amateur mma fight for head shots, which is what i want to do very soon. Like i said if there were head shots that kid wouldnt have a head anymore.
Heres the picture of my cup after the knee to the nuts, the knee definitely took all i had left out of me, not to mention i thought i had shrapnel in my nut suck lol.
Personally, I would rather get a fist to my head, than a knee to my nuts with no cup.
Easily. I fist to the head isnt a huge deal, I took a full blown knee to the face right before the shot to the nuts and i think the nut shot was 10 times worse and i had a cup, if i didnt have a cup i would have been puking all over the mat.
I would rather get blown, but that is not the issue at hand.
