Loss #2 - The Guillotine Choke haunts me
Sunday, December 09, 2012
So, hearing "you did a good job" after a fight that lasted 10 seconds just... is weird.
I put the good face on it, you know - laughing about the guillotine, saying I learned something, hey I did something different.
But it's still a disappointment, and I still look back at the fight and think I didn't do everything I could have. I know how to defend a guillotine, and it wasn't nearly as tight as what normally makes me tap out.
So I get stuck in my head, even though I KNOW I can't go back and do it again, and that I should take the experience as just that - experience. Revealing weaknesses I can work on.
Thinking like that takes a lot of practice.
I'll get back in there, I'm still happy I fought. I just gotta shake off the bad taste the 0-2 record leaves in my mouth and remember we all start somewhere.
Losing weight wasn't easy or smooth. Fighting isn't either.
I'm more worried about embarrassing my trainer than losing another fight. Time to get over that.
But one thing I did prove - I can cut from 156 lbs to 137 in 1.5 weeks, and still be ready to throw down.
How many people can say that?
I've got what it takes to win. I just gotta show it.
Back to the grind, baby. And there's no suspension this time to keep me out of sparring and fights - my next fight is waiting for me when I'm ready.
Oh. And there's the hotties. Always the hotties.
