    My first MMA fight ended with a lost (TKO strikes from the guard). I thought i was fighting a striker, but the guy is not only the national Thai-boxing champ. He is also the submission champ... What a mix to go against in my first fight. I took him down, i mounted him, but when i was about to GNP to make him open for submissions he made the turnover and... no comments.
    But i'm ok and ready for the next one.

    0-1-0, for now...

    Hang in there. I'm a firm believer that you learn much more from your losses than your wins, so it can only make you a better fighter.

    Hey, don't worry about your record. It'll only mess with you. Why care about your record? Unless you're Fedor, there will always be tougher guys to fight, so if your record is outstanding, it means you're not fighting the toughest competition out there.

    Just give your all in every fight. Tell yourself that you're going to win, but if in the course of the fight, you have the slightest doubt, be confident that either way, you are going to be one tough S.O.B. and give your oppoenent the biggest war he has ever had. That's what people like to see, and that's what will gain you respect.

    Remember, it's easy to be a man when everything's going great, you win your fight, and you feel like the whole world's on your side. But what makes a man is when you're down in the dumps, you lost, and you feel like crap, and you pick yourself back up and go back to the drawing board.

    Good luck with your next fight. I recommend videotaping them. Use every loss as a learning experience. Watch what you did wrong, and improve that. And remember to have fun, because hey, we're all just a bunch of wackos whose idea of a fun night is beating the hell out of each other. Real fight fans won't care if you win or lose, they just want to see a good fight.

    You're right. I entered the ring very nervous, because it was the first time, and i was afraid of getting punched (never had). As soon i saw that i could handle the punches in the face, i calmed down.
    I'm shure that the next one i will be more calm. And i also learned that i need to train GNP.

    I don't feel crap. In fact, I'm happy. You know, i got a friend who sais "to punch someone is easy, anyone can do it. the hard part is getting punched"

    That's why I'm happy. I know I've been there with a good striker, he punched me in the face many times and i didn't panic. It's good to know you can take a beating.

    Shame on your not, but good experience it sounded regardless, not many would do what you had done. Congrats is in order no matter the outcome.

  15. Shogun lost his first fight too. Just use it as a motivator and train harder than ever to never make any of the same mistakes. Best of luck in your future man.

    but seriously if you quit with a 0-1 record that would be pretty weak especialy if it shows up on the fight finder so you better not quit!

    Dont even sweat it bro. Just use this to motivate yourself for your next fight. Just like the old saying goes, "sometimes you get more from a loss than you get from a win".

    Dont quit bro
