    -Your opponent had no base
    -When you landed he could have put you in the crucifix immediately.
    -He pushed your head away and didn't throw his leg over, which he didn't have to since he could have just moved his hips a little to take your back.
    -Not only did you try to tap him with a headlock; *he actually did tap to it*.
    -You're grappling with MMA gloves on, and Century gloves at that.

    I know you heretics don't acknowledge the existence of dominant positions, but tell me it's overrated after you give your back to a half-decent grappler (i.e. trains in something other than catch) and he tortures you with a body triangle for half an hour.

    I don't know, I can't see the video, need a codec or something, but I don't know where to get it.

    Dude, it's not like I disagree. Sometimes people get other peoples backs. Got to do something about it. Rick got my back at last TD and choked me. This guy could have gotten my back but I got him. Are you saying that you have never got your back taken??
    I come from exclusively judo rules grappling, so I happen to expose my back a lot. I'm working on it.

    Don't knock the Century gloves. Century is gay, but they make decent MMA gloves.

    Those a revgear gloves and this was a MMA match.
    I take your point about the crucifix.
    Actually, I wasn't trying to tap him, I was holding him in kesa gatame and was trying to rest, this was my 4th match in a row. I was surprised that he tapped.

    You guys are acting silly. There's so many things in every match that could have happened....Are you accusing me of not having a competent enough opponent? I was just trying to show you my offensive turtle.
    Not good enough for you? I take it.
    I thought I was always upfront with my skill. Do you feel like I'm exaggerating?

    Dude, what was this an example of? Reverse from turtle. Did I reverse him? Yes.
    I'm sorry if it wasn't good enough for you.

    How is it a reversal if it leaves you in a worse position than when you started?

    Remind me who tapped in that match again?

    Are you saying that had he been better he would have gotten me?
    What an insight! Yes he would.

    Ok.
    I'm sorry I brought this up.
    I'm no good.
    I bow to your awesomness.
    Come to the MDTD and I will clean your shoes.

    It's not like you don't have a point here, but I'd think it was a step up from being in turtle.
