Well done . Your opponent in the second fight certainly moves well what was his rank ? (I saw the white belt)
Wow, that looks rough!! It would be great for street fighting if street fighters weren't headhunters. And eventually you are going to get a blown out knee fighting like that. Have you picked out your cane yet?
