So I gotta start by apologizing for not keeping you guys posted on my pro fight coming up. I took a fight late notice, a little less than two weeks. Fortunately I was able to get a full training camp in because I was planning on fighting on that card if I could get an opponent. another fight on a different card fell through and one of the guys came over and took the fight with me on late notice but he was already ready for his other fight. I didn't want to say anything because I didn't know if I was actually gonna get an opponent.

so anyway, it was last night at the emerald queen casino up here in Tacoma, WA. I fought a tough guy named Kyle Maloney from Idaho. He was a few inches shorter but he looked really tough at the weigh ins so i knew it was gonna be a good fight. we started out with a pretty nasty exchange on the feet. i got tagged hard in the eye but it was good because it really made me focus and add more head movement. I took him down straight to side control. landed some decent elbows. he got some room and tried to get up but I caught him in a turtle position. I tried to get my hooks in and take his back but he stayed real tight and wouldn't give them up, but he left the side of his head exposed and I landed a super nasty right hand and put him unconscious. It felt great to start my professional career with legit KO. plus later that night my teammate won the 155lb title, so my gym had a great night.

on a different note, my teammate Ian Williams will be fighting Damarques Johnson on Nov. 2nd up here in WA so keep an eye out for that fight. it should be a great fight.

Way to go Tcunningham! People best hide their kids and hide their wives, cause Tcunningham's KOing er'rybody up in here! So as a point of curiosity, I was wondering if there you have a video of the fight you may feel so generous as to upload for your homies here at the PG to see? One thing I can say for sure is that you have the support of the full PG community every fight! Keep on doing what you do.

What you've just said is one of the most insanely idiotic things I have ever heard. At no point in your rambling, incoherent response were you even close to anything that could be considered a rational thought. Everyone in the playground is now dumber for having listened to it. I award you no props, and may the mods have mercy on your soul.
