The best bit was where he repeatedly tried to advise you on how to drop your balls back into their sack with a straight legged little jump.
I'm guessing they hurt too much for that...

Ditto at 250 lbs.
One of our KK bbs (who was good enough to take the Utah State kickboxing title) at 165 used to wipe the floor with me, and my Hawaiian Kempo instructor, at maybe 130, nailed me last winter with his Fxxking right hook (repeatedly) after my (supposed to be) devastating left jab. It's all timing and distancing and he just moves quickly in with a counter and rocks my fat head. Good little guys are worse for the ego than big guys.
Again, good stuff there Alex. You have my respect.

Props to you for sparring with a professional, not to mention a big professional. It take some balls to step up knowing you are going to be someone's target practice. Thanks for posting the vid.

Lot of heart, especially to keep getting up knowing that you're going to get dropped again and again. Kudos.

That was indeed fun (I laughed my ass off when you got dropped by that nutshot, yeah I know I'm an asshole), but nowhere near as much of a beating as that time when some guy came at my gym and litterally WIPED the floor with 3 pro fighters who were all above the 95 kgs (one being at like 110 kg). Taking them one by one several times.
Little did we know he was actually the brother of one of these pro fighters, and the European MT superheavyweight champion.
Here's a pic just to put in perspective lol:
