    That episode is a great example of just how unfit I was. I still am relatively unfit. Compare that to my opponent Francis, who was fit and athletic from word go - I'm pretty happy with how I went against him. I'd love to fight him again in a couple of years time when I'm closer to his level of fitness.

    Just saw that Richie made some bullshit hand-waving excuses in the above video about why he let Francis in. When Ben was matched up, I had the same reaction many people did - what the **** is a former pro rugby player doing on a show called "Wimp 2 Warrior"?

    Ben also tells me that Francis skipped a lot of the W2W training sessions to train at a different gym which produces quite a few relatively successful MMA fighters. I don't believe that's acceptable either.

    I'm also Ben's older brother, and I know exactly how fucking lazy and inactive he was growing up. He has made no effort at physical development in his entire life before this show. He started this show at 1% of his physical potential, and he'll need a good couple of years to even begin getting near his full potential.

    Having said all that, I've got nothing against Francis. He seems like a top bloke and I wish him all the best in his MMA career. He was given an opportunity and he took it.

    And on the positive side, it gave Ben an even greater challenge. He knew he was being set up with a mismatch, yet still stepped up with one of the calmest attitudes I've seen before a fight. And I've cornered friends, students, watched my instructors and other people in my family fight in MMA. After losing he still had one of the best demeanours I've seen. IMO he's got the heart and potential to go as far as he wants.

    Thanks bloke! I agree with everything you've said. My doulbe-leg is atrocious at the moment, but getting the fight to the ground is something I should work on for sure.

    Aw, shucks! Thanks bro.

    I'll be back to as of tomorrow - I'm really excited about it actually. I've even done up a blog - the plan is to cover what I do each week tarining wise and post it up. The first post is a bit of a read, be warned.

    The next episode should be up tonight around 7pm AEST.
