    And thus i shall prove that korotty is weak sauce.
    You can prove Karate is weak sauce but all the men in the audience will boo at you if you beat this girl up.

    Thanks Brian, and thanks a million for being in my corner. You were a big help even if it didn't seem like I was doing everything you said haha. And of course thanks for the support, it means a lot.

    It just wasn't my day. She would be a challenging match for me either way, though I think I could win with a better fight strategy on a day where I'm feeling 100%. I felt pretty out of my element against someone with her fighting style that stays low and throws overhands, especially without the ability to throw knees (I was expecting K-1 rules, otherwise I would've) trained more boxing). But yeah, she's strong, aggressive and hits hard so it'd be tough for me in either case. We'll see how it goes when I eventually do a rematch.

    My next fight, though, I'm going to make sure I match up with someone between 120-125lbs.

    Not to bag on you, because I know you're a solid fighter, but I've heard similar and said similar myself after most of my losses. Actually, I don't think I've ever lost and said to myself afterwards, "****, that guy totally outclassed me and kicked my ass."

    Any time, I had a blast doing it:happy: I just hope I did a half-way decent job, that's the first time I've ever done anything like that. I'm looking forward to seeing the rematch; I'm willing to be you'll get your revenge if it happens.

    There are a few opponents I've fought who DID just totally kick my ass, one of which I would not consider rematching due to a big size discrepancy, the other I would consider rematching after I've won a bunch more fights.

    I've rematched an opponent before and had a total turn around in the results and I think I could make the same happen with this opponent and thus I will probably try and make a rematch happen at some point. That's all I'm saying.

    That's right, all I do these days is box. Kat was there also, but she wasn't feeling well so they asked me to help out.

    Cool, I think cornerman are only good for support, I never hear anything my corner says when i fight, lol...There also good for water, and cuts and stuff, but it is hard to listen to there advice.

    Eh, I have to disagree with you on this one. Your corner people are there watching what's going on in the fight from an outside perspective. They're your extra set of eyes and they can probably see openings and weaknesses in you and in your opponent that you're not seeing. If they're leaving their legs open or not defending leg kicks then your corner can tell you to capitalize on it if you haven't been. If you're leaving yourself open for a counter because of something you're doing they can tell you to change that. If you need to up your work rate because you got out pointed the last round they will let you know.

    I know when I fight there's a lot I don't think to do during the fight that I realize I should have done when watching the video and it seems obvious in hindsight, but when you're in there and your adrenaline is pumping and you have punches and kicks flying at you, you're not really thinking as clearly as you might.

    When you're in that fight or flight mode that being in the ring puts you through it's easy to forget about your corner and just do your own thing, but you're really just discarding a valuable tool. I find it easy enough to pick out my corner's familiar voice when I'm fighting. I just often don't do what I'm told because I'm feeling fatigued and don't have confidence in my ability to do what's being said to me. When I DO listen to my corner, though, I more often than not have successful results.


    edit: and while Brian doesn't really know anything about kicking, his knowledge of boxing and boxing strategy gives him a basis for how I can take advantage of certain openings my opponent was presenting. Especially given that the rule set made it more than 50% a boxing match.
