Yes, disorganization is usually a great excuse. :D
Learn anything? Yeah. I need a new mouthguard. Looks like I'll have to refer to that mouthguard thread for tips on getting a new one. My shitty mouthguard made it pretty hard to breathe throughout the fight.
I found it another good experience being my 3rd fight. I left my opponent with a mashed up leg and a bloody nose, so that should be a good sign. I found that I really have to work on catching an opponent who just runs away. That's something for me to work on when I resume training.

Heh, you'll kick more ass next time!
You should have made sure one guy would come with a good video cam with him.
That way you can study your own fights and see what you can improve on. :)

The fight was a good one. Your draw was hard to call, dude.
I should be able to get my hands on a full tape one of our guys took, I'll try to make you a copy.
Video of the entire event, as well as a write-up, if I can get the video soon enough, will be available soon from yours truly.

Man, I and our gym would really appreciate a copy of the fights. Whenever it comes to travelling outside TO for the fights, nobody ever bothers to bring a video camera.
As usual, your gym kicked plenty of ass. I felt bad for the big black guy (his name escapes me for the moment) just because his scheduled opponent got high before the fight. We chatted a bit and he's a cool dude. What happened to him is a shame no matter who it happens to.
Too bad Theodora was only scheduled to fight an exhibition. We really would have loved to see her whoop some ass.

Theodora's had problems finding opponents for a while, from what I understand. She's sharp, I've seen her go to town on guys and I've held pads for her. Dayum. Doesn't hurt that she's a cutie too. *GRIN*
Steve's opponent was a knob (and in my opinion, a coward) for that drug thing. Personally, I wanted to see Steve (our "big black guy") fight the showboating loudmouth (the OTHER big black guy). I think Steve wanted it too. Too bad both heavyweight fights just plain sucked.
Ended well though, with that KO/TKO (I'm not sure what the official call was? He wasn't out cold, but he obviously was done...)

I'm not surprised that Theodora's having difficulty finding opponents. You're right about her on all counts...I can't say anything about how she trains and all, but I'll vouch on the looks department.
Seriously, I wasn't surprised what happened with Steve's fight. I mean, look at the guy. He's a huge, dirty, scruffy hippie. When my friend mentioned that he was fighting, I made a joke that he'd get high before his fight because he looked like the kind of guy that would. I didn't think it would really happen.
I'm glad our guy knocked out his opponent. The guy is a cocky ass.

One of my seniors said the same thing...he went NUTS when that guy got knocked down the second time. He hated him.
*shrug* I just thought the guy was a nimrod. He was kicking the wall at one point earlier in the day to "warm up". *rolls eyes*

Did you ever see him when he used to do that push up routine at the end of fights?
Posted On:8/18/2004 12:02pm
Nope, never heard about that.
There always seems to be bad blood in these though...and it's still a young, relatively unpolitical league! LOL!
I'm hearing there are fights in October? You know anything about these? Dates?

Ha ha. True. I guess it's the nature of the beast.
There's fights coming up on October 2nd. I'm guessing it will be in Centennial College Scarborough campus again. Are you putting your name down for the fight?
