No, it won't be more fun. It is more fun with the assumptions and anticipation. What comes next is going to be the typical thing we always see.
Crowing or excuses.

I'm 6'4 myself, and all my offense is used in this way, even in judo/bjj i use my reach to frustrate the hell out of my opponent (except my last 2 opponents who were both 6'5 and then it didn't work anymore)
jjdesu: your vids show promise, but lack of skill. you could probably be awesome at ANY sport you did because you are naturally athletic. but your JJJ training is very lacking for the world of MMA, mainly in that you don't know what it's like to try to take someone down and sub them as they are trying to break your face wide open.
one guy i knew took a fight after 9 months of training. it was his only fight, despite having trained at a highly reputable club. in the process of going for a take down, he got punched in the face, then kneed in the exact same spot. his orbital was broken and his retina partially detached. now, he does tae bo classes.
i trained briefly with another guy named dallas. he wound up having his tibia and fibia both broken in one bad leg lock in a smoker to decide if he was ready for the cage. he had been training for a year.
another training partner i had took a beating to the head and had a moderate concussion during his second fight (he won his first fight). that guy didn't train for 3 months behind that concussion.
one of my ukes in my sankyu test just had his first fight. KO in 17 seconds. it was 2 seconds away from the promotions knockout record. the only reason he didn't get the record was because he let his opponent stand up after the FIRST time he got knocked down. this opponent was a wicked good wrestler, but only had heavy bag in the garage training for striking.
that doesn't even get into the bullshit i've seen with promoters putting chumps into the ring.
you could be a good fighter with a record to be proud of, and maybe even an ammy title belt to show for it. but first you need to buy some mouth wash to get the smell of penis off your breath and humble yourself to let coaches of a sport coach you in that sport and quit playing mix and match. otherwise, stick with JJJ and have fun with it, and forget about this MMA stuff.

It's not I don't want you to fight MMA EVER, it's just that I'm worried about your welfare. I guess that's kinda quaint over the internet in these here harsh forums?
Well, I guess in two days time we'll find out.
I wish you the best of luck, be safe, don't stay in the fight if you are beaten--get out, learn from it, and come back again after more training.
It'll be awesome if you get a win!
And thanks for staying pretty calm/polite in your posts, this forum is harsh at times but only to those that are arrogant with no backing to their claims, close minded, here to start fights, here to rehash arguments etc etc ad infinitem.
Hope you'll stick around, win or lose, this site can really help open your martial art eyes/mind, there's some really cool, really skilled guys on here, and the entire ethos of the site to "root out fraud" is the greatest.Daniel: I don't know if I know enough karate.
Miyagi: Feeling correct.
Daniel: You sure know how to make a guy feel confident.
Miyagi: You trust the quality of what you know, not quantity.

With that said, in his case he probably is getting matched up against someone more experienced (at least in training), but it's not like he's fighting a legit professional. He could easily land a lucky shot and take out a much better fighter he isn't supposed to beat, but in order to be able to win consistently he will need to change his training in a MAJOR way.
Unless he gets heavily screwed in the match-up my guess is he ends up having a close fight win or lose. After the fight he'll realize either:
A) MMA isn't for him, back to training JJJ having completed one fight
B) he needs to change up his training to be more competitive.
or C) He decides to stick with JJJ training and become a can with a losing record for MMA fighters looking to move up until he either caves in and starts real MMA training, or quits fighting.

What he can not do is win consistently with his current training. He has zero chance of ever winning any important fights that might help him go somewhere unless he gets into a real MMA program. He may very well be a better athlete than his opponent in this fight, and who knows if his opponent even has better training than him, but if he wins it won't be because he is training properly.

At this level, there are plenty of clueless noobs. He might get one, and get the win. It changes nothing.
