The Final Results from Thailand

This one’s going to be a quick one too, but I thought I’d let you guys know what’s poppin’.

No Gi was a blast. My weight division only had 2 people (three including myself) and I got to fight both of them. I submitted them both (will, maybe right more about the matches later if I remember them still.) That was one gold.

The open weight class was excellent. I got three matches in before the final and 2 of the guys were close to my size (the other guy was quite small.) Those three matches all ended in submissions (damn, that’s fucking 5 subs 😀 .)

The final was a beautiful final (hopefully Nicolai will get video online.) I got to fight a guy with VERY limited BJJ experience, but was only 3 years ago an NCAA All-American wrestler or something. No “taiji” throws this match.

I decided to go against better judgment and go head to head with him standing up. That was mucho fun. I went for a few “flying” submissions, got him in my guard once, even went for some take-downs. I think everyone enjoyed the match.

We ended up going into sudden death because of an even score. Unfortunately I had dis(and re)located my shoulder on one of my flying moves. Sudden death would be ended with the first to score style.

There I was one armed vs. NCAA wrestler. I’m sure you can guess how it went. I slapped his head a few times, but he got the take down. That was tons of fun (shoulder is still hurting now.)

So I got 1 gold and 1 silver today for a total of 3 golds, one silver. Not too bad. I was also happy to hear some people say they thought I was ready to be advanced (do I smell something purple? 🙂 .)

There was this one crazy fight where Nicolai did some crazy stomach crush thing and made a dude throw up… That was wild. Pedro competed in the elite absolute. That was fun to watch.

Time to go eat. See yall when I get back (over some beers I hope.) 😀

    So did that guy puke all over the floor or something? Seems that would be kinda annoying for the next fighters- lol.
