I posted about my up coming title fight on Friday. a few people wanted an update. I took the champs title by way of second round submission. i was pretty stoked cause he was 7-0 with 7 submissions.

more importantly, i just wanted to thank the PG for the support i got on friday. this is why the PG is the ONLY place for everything MMA.

Just watched the fight, you definitely beat that guy in the stand up and on the ground. If that was an amateur fight, I think it's about time you move up to professional.

I kinda got confused a bit with this fight. I originally thought you were the first one to walk down to the cage as you were the challenger, but you came down second...I figured it out when the announcer announced your names. Then when the opening bell rings, the graphic shows you wearing the red gloves when you are actually wearing the blue gloves lol. Just though I'd point it out and help those who have yet to watch it

- nice song choice with Nonpoint's "Miracle"...though your opponent's selection (Pantera's "Walk") I like better
- those 2 ring girls are smokin hot
- you need to work on that flying front kick you tried at like 10 seconds into the fight lol. flying knees work better (yes I am armchair critiquing you )
- nice scrambling work
- fantastic finish to the end of the first round (are amateur fights 3 min rounds?)
- you grabbed the fence in round 2....point deduction! lol other than that way to dominate the entire 2nd round

Excellent performance man. You really beat that guy up. I like your fighting style, very entertaining.

Wow that was actually really impressive. You completely annihilated that guy, he wanted nothing to do with the standup after getting hit a few times. Great fight. How long have you been training for?

Yes, this confused me as well, and I skipped the intro, so I was really confused considering he said it was him who got the win via submission.

Very impressive, dude! Although I will say that the victory would've been much sweeter with an "MMAPlayground" patch on your shorts!

And I was expecting Kpro to storm the cage and shower you with rose petals. Disappointed that he didn't...

Great win and congrats!

Congrats on winning the title. Very nice performance on doing so.

Loved you did the hand gesture for the belt on the waist, classic.

I think you have a Sherdog profile! If its true, it only shows you as 1-0. You should get them to update everything

I tried to storm the cage to put a mmaplayground.com t-shirt on Tyson but was detained and RNC'd by the blond chick with the tats, she's stronger than she looks.

Nice to see it on video after watching from the crowd. Looks even better. Congrats again man. I'll be back in the crowd when you defend it!
