They called me at 10:30 Friday night with yet ANOTHER switch in opponents, so I wound up giving up about 15 pounds or better, but that’s the way it goes sometimes with amateur fights. For the most part, the show was ran very well and I will be fighting for this promotion again.
As luck would have it (or bad luck I guess) he opened a nice cut with his first punch of the fight, we traded some on the feet, went to the ground and I had full good looking for an armbar but the cut was too much and they stopped it. Everything went well, I was in shape, gameplan was working, I just got cut. Not a lot you can besides glue it up and hope for a better break next time.
I’ve got a couple pics now and some more on the way that folks are going to e-mail to me. I’d like to get at least one of the blood on my back from rolling around on the bloody mats. It was pretty messy :)[/quote]
Hey good job man! I know it is always frustrating to lose when it is not your fault to a cut. But, I would wager you learned a ton and will be ready to kick ass when your luck is better.
Props for stepping in the ring!
