Good luck to you. Sucks that you didn't get proper notice. If you aren't in position to turn down these fights on short notice you may want to walk around a bit lighter.

I worked with wrestlers back in grad school with a similar frame of mind. Not quite so much so fast, but similarly. A good portion of MMA fighters have a wrestling background and like everything else they take it to the extreme. It's not ideal (or healthy) to lose 20+ pounds in such a short amount of time, but these guys can do it. And at the end of the day, they get a paycheck for trying to beat the **** out of the other guy.

I know, normally I try to walk around at around 160-165 but with Oktoberfest and pizza I've gotten up there. Yeah I'm not really in a position to turn down fights, I need to eat, pay rent, and brew more beer.

I actually made weight for a fight in late september but my guy pulled out as I was walking in to weigh in. That was ****ing awesome. Couldn't they tell me a little earlier when I was in the sauna?!

After I beat the **** out of this guy so bad that his family cries and begs me to stop "But he's already dead!" I am going to drink so much that when I urinate the animals that live in the sewers will die from alcohol poisoning.

So, a quick update. I just fought and beat the absolute **** out of the guy. He was tough as nails though. He tried rushing me at the bell and so I dropped for a double leg and took him down...right into a guillotine. He didn't quite have it but it was close, he held it for about a minute and a half. I was gurgling (guys that fight know what that means) but I don't know if he heard it. I managed to pull out of it and landed a few, and scrambled a bit, ending up on top, before passing to side control and locking up an arm triangle. That sonofabitch was apparently purple but wouldnt tap and was saved by the bell.

In the second round we circled a bit. I landed a solid leg kick and a good 2, before he rushed me again and again I took him down, this time with bigger dump. He got good posture control and started working some 10th planet **** before I passed again and mounted him. I started dropping bombs, bouncing his head off the canvas and he gave up his back to avoid the punishment, at that point I sunk in the Rear Naked Choke.

I now plan to go to Patton Alley Pub tomorrow night and drink so much that my blood will become flammable.

I am gonna drink so much that brewers panic by the sudden loss of beer and they start pulling so much water out of the ocean to replenish their supply that the pull the moon has on the ocean is thrown off and the moon goes drifting off into space and the earth drifts into the sun.

You should've just drank so much that the specific gravity of your blood put you in a lower weight class.

Congrats. Hope it leads to bigger and better for you.
