This is me in October with no formal MMA training in over 8 years and zero conditioning:
That was me quitting at the beginning of the 2nd round just before I layed down in the center of the ring for like 5 minutes.
This is me in November with no formal MMA training in over 8 years but after doing crossfit mainpage workouts for about 4 weeks:
Notice the armbar I put on him at approx 7:50 youtube time. He tapped and we stood back up for the remainder of the 3 minute round.
A little background info:
I got the itch to get back into some MMA training after an O'lifting competition last month. I used to be really into MMA about 8 years ago. I am too cheap to go join an MMA gym plus don't have that much time. So I found this one gym that hosts open sparring sessions every 4-5 weeks. They call them "smokers" because they are slightly more formal then regular training because they put out an open invite then conduct weigh-ins a half hour before and match up based on skill. Anyways, me being the crazy guy I am decided to just walk on and do it.
