    Can't describe the nerves on this one. Crazy amounts of emotion and stress. Felt fine when I was in there though.

    All last week I've had this massive weight being dragged around. Absolutely panic stricken the whole time. Contemplating not even fighting on the day. Like genuinely not wanting to fight. More severe than ever before. I think if I improve my fitness and conditioning it will settle my nerves because it's the only thing I'm worried about. In terms of technique and fighting I'm very confident in my abilities. I seem to be a technician but not an athlete yet.

    So even though it doesn't look like it I have loads to work on.

    Superb display of technical skill, well done.

    The nerves never go, you just learn to listen to them less.

    Good job!

    Did even take anything other than emotional damage?? Haha

    Nice work dealing with the lockdown, passing, staying calm and opening up the back with measured strikes. Great effective use of body triangle and far side hook to maintain back mount. Thought you were going to get that armbar there! Nice deep body triangle and choke to finish.

    If I'm honest you made like look like a roll in the gym.

    Great job on your pro debut! Inspiring.

    Cheers! Took a huge emotional toll if I'm honest. It's just hard to gauge how good you are compared to the rest of the division. This guy had pretty much the exact same record as me + quite a few Thai fights. He won all his fights via submission though. So everyone thought it would be close.

    Did you notice I got the body triangle and then unlocked and relocked it so that I could trap his right arm? Never done it before :D

    Fantastic!
    You made that look easy, calculated, worked getting that RNC like a walk in the park. (I imagine it felt a hard though)

    Love the tornado at the end. :D
    Well deserved. :cool:

    Yes, nice! I didn't catch that but saw the adjustment.

    You were like a tropical plant swallowing up a crunchy bug... all spindly and deadly. You probably smelt nowhere near as nice though.
