It is time
I made weight yesterday and I learned that I can cut 12 lbs relatively easily. I am still re-hydrating/carbing-up, but I feel much better now than I did yesterday. My fight is scheduled to start at about 10:30 or so and I met my opponent this morning while I ate breakfast this morning in the hotel. I would say that I have put on about 10 lbs or so since weigh-ins and I will probably keep filling out until this evening.
I am ready to get this going and I will let update either tomorrow or this evening.M.Ed. Ex Phys

No, I am fine. A little bruised, but other than that, I am good. This dude was F'ing huge by fight time (~190) at 5'7". I knew that I had a good reach advantage, so that was my gameplan.
I came out and threw a few jabs and then I threw a 1-2 and caught him clean with the cross on the jaw. I threw another flurry of punches and backed him against the cage and went for a takedown. He sprawled on the double, but I still had a single. I was working for it and I though I had it, but he swept me and I ended up in his mount. He started to rain punches, but I kept moving and bucking. I attempted to sweep from there, but I couldn't budge him. I gave up my back to try to roll him over my shoulder, but he nearly flattened me out. I rolled back into mount and then the ref called it. Nothing is broken and I didn't get a medical suspension, so I can still fight in a couple of weeks.

Tough break, dude. I think the move to 155 will serve you well. Then you can be the massive guy who they can't budge.

Who the **** cares if you lost. Doing it is 90% of the game. The last 10% is tweaking and refining your game, then the wins will be inevitable.
How did he sweep you when you had a single leg?
By the way a cut 190 @ 5'7 is rediculous. My friend is 5'10 190 and looks very big.

That being said, no matter how many mount escapes you know, and I know like 4, it's a ***** to get out of. Sometimes you have to give up your back, then fight off the hooks, and push them on to their back, while they still have your back, and roll out into side control, although I'm sure you know that.

My favorite mount escape is to get someone high on my chest while digging my elbows into their groin and covering my face, then bridge and rock back and forth violently until they lose their balance, at which point as long as you don't get caught in an armbar you can reverse. Works great in no gi because sweat makes the arm bar a challenging proposition, but it will get you tapped pretty quick with a gi.

I am getting directions and I am all packed to go on another road trip to Louisiana. My weight is good and I will be getting there much earlier than last time and it is a little closer as well. I will update when I get a chance.
