How bizarre, I told someone almost the exact same thing just today. Someone asked me why I was leaving work early and when I said I was going to Muay Thai, they started doing their best karate impression.

Damn, and I thought I had just had an epiphany.
Get a room, you two.

Omar was in a no-win situation here. Everyone knows that. It is part of what made this whole drama so funny. And he was given an out by Anna not fighting him right there on the spot.
Edit: After reading the neutral observer's post, I tend to think JFS was acting it up for the camera, trying to jump on the first angle to assure the fight didn't happen.

I was worried for OS's health at that point because it was hard for me to imagine why someone who knows how to fight would lead with something as silly as a flying kick, but... he got up, clinched with JFS and did a double-leg takedown before either of them landed a punch.
JFS seemed to go for a guillotine that turned into a headlock as they fell to the pavement with OS mounted on JFS, his chin tucked, breathing short, rapid breaths.
I walked over to the pair, watching the fight, tried to catch it on camera, but I'm not sure how clear the footage is. Omar took the camera and started filming more carefully somewhere around here.
OS tried to knee JFS a couple times, didn't get anything, JFS said something like, "I don't think so." JFS and OS traded *street lethal eye gouges* to little effect. OS slipped his head out of the headlock (I saw no bite, but I don't think I would have from where I was standing), postured up and whacked JFS. There was some punching and some arm grabbing and so on. They talked for a second (didn't catch what they said), then OS hopped off and walked toward the car. He was saying something about JFS's lack of a mount defense and about going home, JFS calling after about "finishing it," blah, blah, more yelling.
JFS is, in fact, quite bloody at this point, but it looked to me like it was all coming from superficial cuts inflicted by -- irony of ironies -- the very concrete on which he wanted the fight to happen. Also maybe the bite?
I went over to talk to Anna with the goal of setting up a place where the originally scheduled fight could occur, possibly with an OS v. JFS re-match included.
While we were discussing locations, JFS reached in and whacked OS's head via the car window, more shouting, lots of "****** boy" from JFS, even less dignity thus bestowed on an already revolting situation.
Atlanta crew leaves. JFS goes to get car keys in order to drive to new venue, I wait outside to get the details from Anna, who calls with some worries about the police. JFS gets cleaned up -- looks fine, not really hurt at all -- decides to go to the beach instead, he and Omar and Donkey do that, I go have lunch with my mum, then take the bus back to NYC.
Before we parted company I told JFS that I would have done the same thing OS did (minus the flying kick) and so would he (had he been on the other side of things), he nodded and said he couldn't even be mad at the guy. I can't make sense of JFS, who seems in many ways to be two people at once.
Why can't we get together and beat the snot out of each other in a friendly way, like civilized people?
so.... where's the video?
Thank you for that. JFS sounds like a very unstable person.
Sounds like Os "won" to me.
he took JFS down, mounted him, and hit him untill JFS seemingly gave up.
Then wanting a rematch he followed Os and sucker punched him.
This makes me happy, as I always thought JFS was a jackass.
And Omar, you're a sick **** for just standing there and saying nothing.
If what he says is true, archived away never to see the light of day.
so.... where's the video?
If your only recourse from under mount is asking your opponent to stop then I don't see how that can be interpreted as anything other than a loss.
