We did some stand-up too. It's a very big Muay Thai gym but all disciplines have world-class instructors and competitors. I'm 172 at 6% bf right now. When I trained with Sean I was probably 187-190 or so because that's what I usually walked at before I'd cut 17-27 pounds for weigh-ins. My strength per weight is very high though so I can be even with a 225 pounder strength-wise. Before MMA I was 215-228 and a BSH. Not fat at all but too bulky for my height and body type. This is what I was meant to be at for weight now and athleticism and joint/muscle health is through the roof as a result.
The main disadvantage I'd have with Sean or the taller/tangier guys is reach for stand-up and limb length for jits. Look at Kendall Grove, he's got it made. I think we talked about that before though. Going up against them you really have to find your critical distance and set up your invasions and make sure they're explosive. Clinch game and dirty boxing is key too once you close the gap. Gotta love the advantage for shooting legs against taller dudes though.
Let's talk more later on, I gotta step in this liquid now!!

Finally.....for the most part I gave up on the SI forum because Emass ruined it for me. Any topic that I had the slightest interest in was ruined by his idiotic jibber jabber. SO when I saw this post I had to take a gander.
Mr. Gaffer, nicely done. Your posts have made a better contribution to this forum than most all others collectively. And Clemson, nice call out. Maybe a step in refreshing my interest.
Mr. Swell Info Admin, Ban EmassSpicoli before he runs off too many more users like myself and ruins your brand.
I said it months ago, I've never met anyone from Mass that doesn't enjoy hearing themselves talk more than listening (or something like that). Another perfect example.

^^^^^Both Nailed it!
Admin please get rid of this douche. Respectful beginners come here all the time looking for info and he pounces with the intent to embarrass or drive them away.
