I had posted a question to Omega about it, but hadn't seen the response, so I will ask you:
in and around the 2:00 mark, your opponent was pressing you pretty hard and you exhibited some nice upper body movement and defense. Did you come into Omega's camp with that or was that something he installed and drilled into you?

I'm just saying, judging by how you didn't clinch and kept trying kicks that maybe your skill base isn't in the grappling area. I don't know what you've trained in, sorry for trying to be helpful.

I'm going to qualify my opinion by first saying that Sirc gets kudos for committing to a fight, showing up, and getting in the ring. That means something. And those of you whove never been in a ring, cage, wrestling mat with kicks and punches wouldn't understand.
Its high pressure for sure but Sirc looked like he was just too afraid to mix it up. To his credit, yeah, it was a really bad matchup and he wasn't supposed to fight this guy to begin with but hey, I wouldn't be yelling at someone for pointing out really obvious but I still didn't do. I know its super duper high pressure and there are all these reasons you didn't commit, but really, wasn't that one of the best ways to win? At least you'd have found out if you could beat him on the ground or not. The way it went I don't think you got to show your full potential (durrr)
If I was the one who fucked up, to me, thats time to just listen. Just because I've been in the ring once doesn't give me the right to tell people they don't got the right to criticize, or that certain criticism is stupid. $0.02. But thats just me.

Props to Zap and Sirc.
Looking forward to seeing Zap fight under a less restrictive ruleset and sirc fight at his real fight weight (135lbs?). No need to point out what Sirc did wrong guys, fighters know exactly what they did wrong after a fight and sometimes even during it while they're making the error. First fights are an adrenaline dump from hell.

Now, are you still training with Omega?
Because if you are, I have a feeling that he will be drilling you on using this strategy to keep luring them in, like you did, but then unleash some offense.
I *think* he alluded to this (not wanting to speak for him) with his "Sirc letting his hands go" comment. If you can cover up, keep that side to side motion, slip the punches or take arm punches like you did, get them to wade in, like your opponent did, you *should* be able to start catching them with some shots and work your offense. Just from your older TD videos and this video, your time with Omega seems well-spent.

What you do with that opportunity is up to you.
If you watch the video, there are times that I got to beat him up, but whatever mental block I had didn't let me do it. :(
But you controlled the situation by slipping and taking armshots. If you can get the guy to wade in like that, he will be exposed and open and you *should* be able to land at least one shot. Your mental block was *probably* your focusing on defense...which isn't a bad thing necessarily, but the more time you spend working your style, the more comfortable you will be with knowing when you can let your hands go.
Omega will tell you what you did wrong and what to do next time. The guy is a former pro and there probably isn't too many things he hasn't seen, tried, done, seen done, had done to him, tried to have done to him, etc. and at this point he probably knows your strengths/weaknesses better then you.

For everyone commenting on Sirc's...whatever, He said his plan was to tire homeboy out, then swoop in like cocks to jenna jameson.
PROOF that I'm not a completely useless poster:
