I ask because Friday night I was supposed to fight, and for the third time in six months, I had my opponent drop hours before the match (the day after weigh ins).
Because this keeps happening, I’m so frustrated, it really makes me reconsider the entire thing (or at least competing amateur).
It seems like kick-boxing (can’t find amateur full-rules MT in my area) is really the worst. The amature MMA promotions seem much more “together”, and better at getting people to show up.
But I can’t help but feel like my luck has been particularly bad these past few months.
Friday I had TWO opponents drop. Original opponent came in almost 10 pounds over-weight. They found another opponent for me. He dropped around 1pm the day of fight. Original opponent said he was still game for the fight if I’d take it, so I did. 15min before fighter call we get a text from him saying he’s pulling out.
I’m not that scary… WTF is this?
