OK, I'll pick it up from here. That was in November of 2006 and that title defense was supposed to be December 10th - not November. After my November 06 bout I decided to wrestle in Midlands. My application was accepted.
I had a great tournament, but I was injured in the consolations and had to forfiet out to 8th place. I would take a fight over a wrestling tournament "any day"!!!! That was hard on my body and I do not plan on doing it again.
At this point I was still teaching from 8-3pm coaching wrestling from 3-5pm, and running club from 530pm-7pm then running to the gym to hit the bags or do some light drilling.
I had no way of training like a real fighter. I did this all the way until March where I held a title defense for FCF while barely training. Basically, I was just wrestling and running to stay in shape.
The fight went well, but I wrestled to much. I had 0 stand up skill, but great ground and pound along with big slams. I won my major decision, but it was poor performance.
