I'd be perfectly happy to fight TS, under two conditions:
1. He comes down to my natural weight, 70.3 kg, not something-something 90-ish.
2. He comes to my place, rather than burdening me with the costs.
- And, yeah, he should pay that by himself, because that way, he might learn to appreciate the environment that others provide for him. We are talking about a person here that was all up on giving me a presentation about how "Savate is a bad system" - with the Savate instructor, who had been gracious enough to give us a free lesson standing next to him, no less.
But really, I don't give a ****.
Instead, I have a challenge: Everybody interested, spend, say, five minutes with TS in real life. And then, give me your opinion.
Because, what gets lost over this shameful theater is, people here can talk me down, harass me, ridicule me, whatever; next time people get together with TS, the problems will remain the same. I don't need to make a stand for anything; I can just wait until the next Throwdown TS attends, and how people will talk afterwards.
Yeah, you can live your life like you want to.
What about you make a start by not bothering people with your insecurities?
Now, people might think I am a dick for letting out information that was given confidentially; actually, that's not the case. TS distriibutes this information quite freely, whether people want to hear it, or not.
In fact, because he is so weird, I had held back A LOT. Not anymore, though.
This has to have an end.
DUDE STFU with your bullshit.
Oh and LOL@SCRUB using third person, Mother fucker you aren't Ali or Lennox lewis STFU.
During the euro td Hiro got good advice the whole time, and wasn't smashed into pulp. Special props to Pointy for his restraint boxing him. If anyone had harbored bad intentions, Hiro gave them ample opportunity to act on them. Didn't happen.
The one angry moment I saw was HP yelling bitch w/ the angryface for TS kicking his legs during mma while he was on the ground, as though there's supposed to be a reset or hug or some ****. Hiro...you even watch mma?
Angryface? I was laughing.
But, yeah, I was expecting a stoppage, BTW, because we had agreed - or, well, this might have been a misunderstanding - to fight only on the part of the mat that TS throws me out of with his very first move. Also, no elbows to the head, which would have been handy, BTW.
(Before anybody makes an angry rebuttal, where was I kneeling before the start of the fight? Why did I do that, and what was spoken on the mat before that? I think that part of the conversation might even be on tape.)
So, yeah, I expected Zendo to stop the fight as soon as we got out of that clinch, and to reposition us on the other side of the the mat field(?). This is why I turn my hip, by the way. I was confused. Also, Zendo had advised us before the fight to go super-soft, so that's why I tapped after the first hard hit.
And you know what is funny about this? I didn't give a **** about this, then, and I don't give a **** about this now. I was never particularly interested in a TD fist, and in fact, Zendo had to talk me into this sparring match in the first place. First, when he visited me in Spain, and then, when it was apparent that I was sick on the day of the TD.
I guess I could prove all I just wrote if I dug deep enough. But I don't care.
Also, in that context, TS and me sparred later that day, or rather tried it, and when he repeatedly stepped on my toes, and with equal repetition kicked me in the nuts, I clearly told him that, while I was not interested in making this a mess (remember what Zendo had told us about sparring), I would hurt him as well if he didn't stop. And guess what, 2011's TS got the message.
I am not making excuses; and, no IIF, I am not trying to lay the blame on TS. I am providing you guys with the context to make an informed decission about what really went on that day.
I am perfectly okay with people questioning my integrity; but I've only kept quiet so far because I didn't want the TD group to implode. Now, since TS doesn't seem to care, and tries to make a point in going after me, I'll give him the trouble he's been asking for.
Regardless of who "wins" in this bullshit affair, it's a shitty promotion for the Throwdown, because it clearly shows that even some members of this "core group" are unable to get along.
As to the other stuff, veiled threats are cheap, IIF. In fact, since you read my posts, and have known me through this forum for years, how do you think that I see the situation with TS?
Hiro, the lowlight is to spur you into training. Know this, those guys were extremely nice to you.
Don't Gong Sau anyone, just maybe take some level 1 boxing or kickboxing classes. You sparred like someone who'd never sparred, really.
