I would like to start off by sending a big THANK YOU to Ty Pilgrim and his partner at Striking fights for letting me partake in one of the most professionally run amateur Muay Thai events that I have ever been a part of. Secondly I would like to thank my opponent David Roland for rising up to the challenge and being a great opponent. He is a very talented fighter where I had to use all the skills I know to compete with him.

Speaking with many different people who saw the fight, either in person or on video said that I should have won. I felt the judges robbed me of a victory. Just goes to show you that you should never leave it in the hands of the judges.
I was very happy with my performance, my cardio was g...Read Full Post »
