Kid: You often learn much more from losing than from winning, no sweat. At least you were still concious at the end of the bout (no mean feat considering your opponent turned out to be vastly more experienced than you first realised). You got heart, and not a little talent, I see big things in your future.
Grats on your win too Anna, I'm looking forward to the vids.

If you were able to put up a fight and not get completely dominated or KO'd by someone with a lot more ringtime (regardless of her record), then I'd call that a moral victory. Good stuff.

Word, I bet you'll really work on that clinch game now, eh? Congratulations for staying concious and making the judges decide who won instead of your opponent.

man, sometimes when they don't go down right away it can be kind of a chore, eh?
I knew that chick looked tough.
There's no choice but to confront you, to engage you, to erase you. I've gone to great lengths to expand my threshold of pain. I will use my mistakes against you. There's no other choice.

Congrats to Anna..
Kiddo, better to lose your first fight early on in your journey. Now you know some areas you need to work on, it will be a valuable learning experience for you.
Way to tough it out.
Records can be misleading. I have no "official' MMA record, but fought well over twenty Amateur boxing matches when I was a younger man...that is a fair bit of experience to chalk up before you are 25.
You''ll be back!

I think the biggest problem was the lack of preperation. Since early January Ashly has been training to fight under international rules (which does not include clinching or knees) since her last few scheduled fights were under that ruleset.
As such she's been neglecting clinch work and we accepted this fight under "modified muay thai" rules with about 7 days notice. Due to various factors we really only had about 3 days to train for it and help her get back into the clinch game. (Which was previously one of her strongest areas).
I think had we done the fight under international rules that ashly would have pulled out a signifigantly stronger preformance. But obviously we learned our lesson and next time we'll be sure and get her clinch back up to par before we fight under a clinching ruleset.

Unanimous decision, sadly.
She was more aggressive and had dominant position in the clinch for a large portion of the rounds. I had the advantage most of the time in striking range, but the fact that she controlled me so much in the clinch and kept taking me down really offset the decision. Also, I had a throbbing headache, my lungs burned and my nasal cavity felt like it was on fire and the entire crowd was against me, so I kind of showed my fatigue, which I think really made it look even more like I was losing the match.
I'll get her in the rematch!
