    MMA Debut

    Right, so when I walked out to "Welcome to Jamrock" by Damian Marley with one of my team mates waving the flag in the background, I thought I was in for an awesome night. No sir, not to be.

    Bell rings, dude comes flying straight at me with a non threatening superman punch. For some reason, instead of moving diagonally, I move straight back and he clinches with me against the cage. Apparently somehow he had heard of Q-dot's awesome striking and decided he didn't want any part of it, or something, because he did whatever he had to to keep it out of striking range.

    So we're against the cage, and he's trying all kinds of **** to no avail, my takedown defense is solid. I fire off a few short punches and short elbows from the clinch, no idea if they connect properly or not.

    Then he pulls guard. I go "dude, what the ****?", as I was not expecting that ****. I throw some punches from guard, stand up in his guard, throw a couple punches, then back to knees. I stand up again, he spins and grabs a leg. Wasn't expecting that either, but I put my weight on it and defend, then sensing an opportunity, I turn to pull away, thinking I can get my leg out. For some reason, it's stuck under him, and I go "dude, what the ****?" once again. By the time I'm done with that thought he has a heel hook in deep, twists me off balance, and I have to tap, because I think I'm hearing the creaking in my knee ligaments. Two and a half minutes was how long it lasted.

    And just like that, I'm 0-1 in pro MMA.

    Right, the video. OK, so I don't have tape material right now with me, because the dude who was handling my camera was more interested in taping the ring girls and other random **** than the actual fight. Thankfully, there were other cameras, so video is forthcoming.

    Well done Q. Hope the knee is okay.

    Did you actually say "WTF" out aloud to your opponent? Did you feel prepared for the fight and what did you weigh?

    Woulda freaked the guy out more if you'd come out to I'm Shipping Up To Boston, with your buddy waving the Oirish flag behind you.

    What's scarier than a 7ft Irish Jamaican?

    Seriously(ish), good work on the fightin', and better luck on your future endeavours.

    TBH heel hooks and other leg attacks always scared me, last night's UFC was just a reminder. I tapped 2x in a row while going with one of Sambo Steve's guys just because he touched my foot.

    Are they usually legal in amy mma?

    P.S. Good job trying, -repping you because for you red is green rep. I really want to see what title you get after Mechanized, etc.

    Don't worry about a loss man learn from it and put it behind you. Oh and don't be to hard on your friends bad videotaping ring girls are very distracting.

    Question, congratulations on your debut. Looking forward to seeing the video when it is posted. Add me to the chorus of well-wishers who posted props to the Q for stepping in the ring.
