Eh, with all the rushed games we've seen recently, this is a good thing.

100 percent agree.  IMHO CD Projekt has always been extremely consumer friendly with their DLC, DRM, and taking their time with their games.  Can't wait until May 2015!

He really wanted to keep fighting with a broken arm?  Or you just wanted to keep beating on him?  slywink

I told Hark this the day after, but I acted like a tool.  After the third kick he immediately went down on his knees and started to wave me off.  I taunted him a little, yelling for him to get the hell up and fight. I was hungry from weigh ins, angry that I was fighting almost last on the card, etc etc. In hindsight I should have acted with more humility and sportsmanship.

You da man Kato. Although you would think an opponent in a Muay Thai match might have expected you to kick him and somehow prepare for it.

So my opponents trainer/corner told us that his fighter broke his ulna.  Amateur scene is crazy. On paper, I have only 4 fights and my opponent had 3 (in ISKA Muay Thai) so every bring looks pretty even. But underneath you never know if you are fighting some crazy Russian dude that has 30 Sambo fights or has fought amateur overseas.  Unfortunately for my opponent I have a crazy fighting background that doesn't show up on the books. 

Also, the other guy never fought without shinpads before and since I train old school Muay Thai way (no shin pads, kicking heavy bags full of sand, shit like that) I guess he was not conditioned for a simple hard kick. 

Last but not least, I'm a big welterweight. The other guy was in decent shape but not as much muscle as me and definitely more body fat.

I'm a bit nervous for my next fight, I tried sparring with just 8oz MMA gloves today and I got rocked so many times. I can't believe MMA fighters go out there with 4oz gloves.

My next fight is in April 2015 in California for an MMA fight. My BJJ is okay, but my wrestling is weak so I better work on that.  I'm taking fights as much as I can these next few years because I promised my wife to stop when I turn 40.

As a fighter over 35, there a bunch of hoops to jump through to get approval from a fighting commission.  Since I'm military it was much easier to supply them with current blood tests, CT scan (anyone over 35 is mandatory), and I even had to send in a video of me and a sparring partner going a hundred percent for 3 rounds (breaks included).  The end result was a good one, however I feel a little disappointed that the actual fight was so short.

Initially to my relief, my opponent looked to be in decent shape and supposedly has 3 or 4 amateur wins no losses. My last few fights the promoters have been giving me subpar competition so I was quite happy.

The fight lasted 24 seconds.  Ref stoppage due to my opponent's left arm broke from my third kick.

About 36 hours before my fight, I can't wait. Here's a pic of my wife, My Kru (Master) and his wife. Thanks to these people I can be successful at fighting even at my age.

Not a huge SW fan, but I did get chills when the falcon came on screen.

I agree. It's not so much the images, but the sounds of the x-wings, droid, Falcon, and the soundtrack that put a stupid smile on my face

Does that mean everyone is equally suffering from the crazy lag issues? Last night was the worst I've seen in a long while. I recorded some clips and replayed them today as saw such a great disparity ingame versus kill cam

Titanfall's new game mode is fantastic. Played a few rounds with Jarrodhk late last night and just didn't want to stop

For a show that's based on a Card Battle Game, Rage of Bahamut is surprisingly awesome.  In the running for best new anime of the year I'd say.
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=A_yX_VAdch0

High fantasy, focusing on two bounty hunters, one noble, the other a scoundrel, who get rapped up in a potentially world ending scenario unbeknownst to them.

The first episode is a must watch at the very least, it's on Funimation's site.
http://www.funimation.com/shows/rage-of-bahamut-genesis/videos

Bonus: dancing


I've been watching this and at least in the first three episodes that are available the animation quality is stunning. Especially during the dance scene. I hope the series didn't blow their whole budget already.

I'm sure it will sound silly, but remembering to breathe properly will help you in that first round.  Should help with both the burst and the extreme focus.  I wouldn't worry about him being younger, nothing you can do about that.  Taller though you can deal with.  Nothing I can help with that you don't already know though, but I'm sure you can talk to a coach at your gym about minimizing reach advantages.

edit: and don't forget to make a video of it. Tongue  where are your first two videos?  ninja

First two were in Fresno California during the Amateur smokers which have almost 40 fights going on.  It was just me and my coach was in my corner so no video. My next one is on December 28 and unfortunately my whole family will be there win or lose, so I'm pretty sure a video recording will happen.


Quote from: Teggy on October 20, 2014, 02:29:39 AM

No, no experience. I would suggest you avoid lying on the ground and getting punched in the face repeatedly. That always looks painful.

Illegal in my next fight but thanks all the same Teg slywink

Quote from: Harkonis on October 19, 2014, 08:04:35 PM

don't overdo (or underdo) your training Kato, I know someone who tends to always overdo it a bit (and he looks just like you!)

Ah yes, I am truly guilty of over training, especially as I get older I feel that I don't have enough time so I end up destroying my own body. 

My first two fights were not very challenging due to the fact that it was my opponents' first amateur fight as well.  Ironically enough, I am pretty big for my weight class (low body fat, high muscle density)

My next opponent is supposedly a lot taller, has more fights, and is 12 years my junior.  I'm worried about him because every time I have fought I get extreme tunnel vision. I can't hear my corner, even if they are yelling.  Also in the first round I have an adrenaline dump in the first 30 seconds so after that I am winded and tired for the remaining round. Second and third rounds I actually get stronger and faster it's just that crappy first round I need to fix.

Quote from: wonderpug on October 19, 2014, 02:18:57 PM

I'd say it's really important to know your matchups. You're not going to be able to handle the unfavorable ones if you don't know all the subtle ways your special moves can counter theirs. Also keep in mind that the input lag is going to be far less in person than what you're used to training at home, so that may throw off your combo and reversal timing.

Lol thanks Pug, I'll keep that in mind. Hopefully my next opponent will not give me a combo breaker.

Does anybody here have any experience in amateur or professional fights? Boxing, Muay Thai, MMA, or Ju Jitsu? I'm currently training hard for my third amateur Muay Thai fight this December and I have a few questions and concerns that I hope some of you can answer.
