Yeah i know the feeling mate, its not uncommon for people who spar really well to go into their first smoker/fight and forgot how to throw anything except hooks. It takes a lot of guts to get in there.
I only brought up those clinch remarks in regards to this:
I would stick my hip into his perpendicular whenever we clinched, which made it very difficult for him to land knees and very easy for him to land throws."Boxing is the art of hitting an opponent from the furthest distance away, exposing the least amount of your body while getting into position to punch with maximum leverage and not getting hit."

You are a low rank ex-Judo player with no tournament experience and no experience fighting under a Muay Thai ruleset trying to give advice on throws and clinch striking in the advanced striking discussion forum.
You then take offense when a Judo Brownbelt with a fair bit of tournament experience who doesn't try to offer advice about either striking or throwing tells you your **** doesn't fly in this forum.
Hopefully this gets culled to Sheerdog."Boxing is the art of hitting an opponent from the furthest distance away, exposing the least amount of your body while getting into position to punch with maximum leverage and not getting hit."

Your jokes aren't funny enough for me to read them, considering your newfound dickery. <ignore>

I'm the one in the pink shorts.
Upon reviewing the video, I also found another mistake in my clinch game - I kept trying to set up head and arm throws, which I knew were not kosher, and it mostly just left throwing schoolyard headlocks. Oh, and goddamn hopping on one foot for reasons that are still unknown to me. I'll have to correct that.
Anyways, the video isn't the best quality, as a lot of the action is blocked either by the corner of the ring or the ref. The second round is split into two videos, for before and after the nut shot.
Those noises at the beginning of the second round(s) are me screaming.
The video for the third round starts with me in mid-air as I threw a superman punch from across the ring. I know, I know, I should've thrown a butterfly kick instead.
I was completely unaware that there was music playing for the entire time I was fighting.
The last video cuts out before I stood up on the ropes, shouted "OOOODDIIIIN!" and accidentally knocked out a light fixture by throwing my fist to the sky.

I didn't realize this was Advanced Striking Forum, on that, I apologize. As for taking offense when someone much LESS skilled then me tries to give me.
As for the advice, that is the advice that is always given to me by my coach.
comp experience? You were 1-6 like...a month ago. And yes, you beat me in JUDO competition. I compete in GRAPPLING tournaments. As for my MT experience? Are you at my gym? Do you see me train?
**** you 1.2, you're a fucking idiot.
However, I'm sorry for the thread de-rail.

Wow. My ninja, this is what happens when you **** around and take an MT fight after 1 month's training.
I admire your confidence and heart and ****, but y'all look like some fuckin' noobs, mayne. Seriously, what the ****?
I mean, I saw you throwing some workless jabs with your non punching hand by your waist, and some fucking loose kicks. I didn't see any combos come off, the clinching looked like some caveman ****. Why use the elegant plum clinch when you can headlock a motherfuckers schoolyard style.
It's not even worth discussing technique and ****, because, really, you look like an angry ************ who just hopped of the street and into a muay thai fight. Never mind that though, I guess the point was to overcome your fear and get used to fighting and whatnot. But hey, just think, you could have done all that WITHOUT embarrassing yourself on the internets. Just think.

And really, really. Was that anything less than fucking horrible? Come on. Come on. Just say you fucked up and took a fight before having any actual skill.
Be a good little hospital and admit it, you looked like ************ in those videos.
And I don't mean ************ as in "oh ****, that ninja is one bad ************", I mean ************ as in "What the **** is this ****? If I want to watch two small dogs paw at each other and bark I would watch the fucking discovery channel".
