    Can't remember if the force booted him but they did not take kindly to the press. That was years back when MMA was far less accepted. The McDojos have helped the public opinion of the sport even though they kill its internal legitimacy.

    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!!

    He didn't get booted, though hey did not like that he took part in a non-sanctioned fight... He works in the Gang Unit or something like that.

    Wow, that's quite the size difference, definitely a challenge dealing with a dude that size, but not impossible, we stalkier guys have our advantages too though, lower center of gravity but loads of power, definitely gotta stay outta arms reach though and get inside to do your dirty work, anyways, Get waves brotha!

    Good for him man, would be a shame for him to lose his job over something like that, but I would understand why. After watching the film I'm sure the Sarg in charge probably thought, damn, why would we fire him, let's put him in the most dangerous unit and let him whoop asses and take fool to jail.

    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.
