I also thought that he looked vulnerable to your punching in the last round. But it seemed that you wanted to clinch (your speciality, I guess) and he was able to prevent you from doing much in the clinch. In hindsight, perhaps, you could have punched more in the last round.
Your defence was great though...it didn't look like your opponent really hurt you.
I hear that you still retained your title because he was 20 pounds over the weight limit. Congratulations.

Yeah, I was being stupid in there. He was vulnerable to my punching, but I just didn't punch because I stupidly got focused on kicking and kneeing. It wasn't until Master Danny started screaming at me to punch that I started to box with him a little.
I didn't really get hurt at all, but bounced around like a pinball. He was so big that he was knocking me all over the ring with very little effort. It was embarrassing.
Actually, I wasn't fighting to retain a title belt. We were both fighting for an open title. However, due to his being overweight, he won the fight, but I won the title. Sounds very strange, but if you think about it, it was the right and fair thing to do. My opponent was awarded a vacant title in his own weight class.

What did you guys think of the fighter from SITYODTONG? He looked real good to me.

Dood, I did not get to see the fight, but EVERYONE that I've spoken to says that his fighter was DA BOMB and that he literally put on a Muay Thai clinic!!!!!!

Oh yeaaah! I remember that guy, he was pretty badass. He was just kinda pushing the other guy around.
I dunno if it was just me and my going crazy, but I think some fights were a little bit biased toward Extreme Gym. Am I insane?

I'm studying ethnomusicology. This **** is right up my alley. I've studied andean music so I can say that Muay Thai music is no where near the most annoying music in the world. However, none of it is as bad as the best that American Idol has produced.
