Good luck, Rodja!
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.
Good luck, Rodja!
Good luck man!

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.

BTW, do you consider it a bad stoppage?
No, it was a good stoppage.
Sorry to hear that bro...we learn more from losing than we do from winning! Keep workin!
Good to hear brother! Next fight in 2 weeks?
