Rodja's back in the cage
I got the call and I have accepted a fight on 2/27 in Austin, TX. My opponent is a former Iowa wrestler, so I am working on 2 things for this fight (well, 3 actually):
1. Working on my sprawl/cattle catch
2. Working my sweeps/subs from guard
3. Eliminate my instinct to shoot (this is very critical for my success)
I am sitting at ~188 or so right now, but I am not worried about making weight. In fact, I want to come into this fight a little heavier, especially in my legs (which will be very easy for me to do). My cardio is not quite where I want it to be, but I have learned how to burst and relax to conserve on my gastank. I am 4 weeks away from weigh-ins, my hands have been corrected, my kicks have more power than ever...I am already ready for this fight.
This is also the first fight I will have while taking AX and RPM, which gives me fantastic aggression that is in full force. I still have over 2 bottles left, so I will still have it fully in my system when the bell rings.
It's time to cue up the storm once again...M.Ed. Ex Phys

I hope you do great. I'm guessing the fight is going to be at 170. What style of fighter are you? also is this pro or amatuer and what is your record?

Yep work on sweeps big time. I work with a lot of wrestlers and their top control is just something. One of my good friends and former training partners was at SF State when Jake Shields came in and you know how Jakes wrestling Game is. this guy use to have such great top control most of the time i just worked to survive. Worked alot of awkward escapes back door sliding under etc.

I wasn't able to fight this weekend because I got into a car wreck on the way to the weigh-ins (never drive after cutting 13 lbs) and my foot was injured. This cut was by far the worst and hardest of my life; it took me 45 minutes last time, but this time took over 4 hours.

Wow, So sorry to hear that bro. At least you did not get seriously hurt. There will always be another fight, your health and safety comes first. Next time have someone drive you crazy ass. I always have someone drive me to a competition, it helps keep your mind clear and relax. Well hope you heal up quickly. Take care bro. ALoha.
