    Rudy hits hard tagged me about six times and I spent about 45 seconds trying to get a dbl leg. He trained for it. Being punch drunk it took me three tries to figure out what he was doing.

    Rudy has my respect. Thank you Sifu Rudy for allowing me to test myself.
    You have a lot of class Anthony. There are some people around here who should follow your example.
    And yes, Abel desreves credit for showing up and stepping up - even if it did take a while.

    Best summation of the credit requirement.

    This needs to be repeated since the very idea of it seems waaay too alien for some.
    Read this for flexibility and injury prevention, this, this and this for supplementation, this on grip conditioning, and this on staph. New: On strenght standards, relationships and structural balance. Shoulder problems? Read this.

    The street argument is retarded. BJJ is so much overkill for the street that its ridiculous. Unless you're the idiot that picks a fight with the high school wrestling team, barring knife or gun play, the opponent shouldn't make it past double leg + ground and pound - Osiris

    Rudy basically talked himself into a corner and had no choice. No props for showing up are deserved.

    Also, dude has been training for 25years. I mean really, 25 years of training just tapped out to a few years of BJJ and some MMA stuff as a side dish.

    This is deliciously humiliating to have happen to a guy who has bitched and moaned and tossed around constant insults, a guy who has done nothing but troll and harp endlessly about his own capabilities and the failings of others for years.


    25 years.

    I just turned 25 two weeks ago, a lifetime of worthless training.

    Let me taste your tears, rudy.

    Hell, Rudy has always loved sitting back and trashtalking throwdown videos over the course of the years. He especially loved making fun of Anthony for the video of Anthony sparring with me.

    If anyone has ever earned someone laughing mercilessly at their performance then it surely must be Rudy Abel.

    I too would like some tear brew.

    Look, Macho, we get your point about the necessity of being a MAN about this and letting it go, acknowledging the gravity of Rudy's public humiliation is sufficient punishment.

    Except it isn't. I didn't read 1,000 posts spread out over the course of several months to watch a three-minute video and tell Anthony gg. I came for the sheer sadistic thrill of watching someone I don't like get beat up, and I'm sticking around to rub his nose in it for as long as possible. That, my dear fellow, is what we call Frontier Justice and it's a far better approximation of what MEN have historically done.

    That said, I want to reiterate, because the concept seems terribly alien to some: Rudy dug his own hole. Not just a couple posts a few people disagreed with, but literally years of ****-talking, name-calling, ducking, lying, manipulating, and every other form of disreputable behavior on top of training in kung fu. I understand your point in alotting him the miniscule amount of credit for showing up, but considering all the **** he put Anthony through beforehand, showing up was expected, not brave. He satisfied the bare minimum requirements by being physically present in the ring, but it was painfully obvious he was shamed into going, not to prove a point, not for honor but simply to avoid looking like a jackass. He tried to bluff his way out of it and wound up backing himself into a corner. No respect. None.

    Seconded. When two men settle something with a fight, it's settled -- that's kind of the point, innit? Anthony's attitude and conduct afterward was exemplary. Whether Rudy takes something useful away from this experience is up to him, but this **** ought to be over.
