I've been training stand up (no grappling at all) in preparation for a MT fight and I've been sparring quite a bit lately. I'm purely an amateur and I've been getting in some good quality sessions. I also have a full time professional job and I end up with a bunch of abrasions on my face and nose. I understand that when fighting I'm going to get knicks and cuts and abrasions, but I'd just like to take the edge off them if possible. I don't mind explaining to my clients that I fight regularly, and it's a good conversation starter sometimes, but I'd prefer to just get right to selling. Is Vaseline the answer? Can some of you folks that have been training for a long while give me a few tips? Thanks in advance.
