    Check out Division 12-Noah Thomas (3 years PRO experience) feeling like a real winner for banging bluebelts out last Saturday. Guess he didn't have any backyard asswhippings scheduled that day.

    ...did you not see him on the ground in TUF his only good move was in the back yard brawl...if he is only a blue belt then he could have under 3 years experience.

    The sad thing is, the eighteen year old kid that won the featherweight blues had the stones to enter the absolutes, even though he lost to Mal Havens. Can't say the same for ANY of the pros that day.
    Notice the new rule for MMA fighters starting next year.

    That happens all the time at tournaments. But in this case, I am not sure it is a problem. He didn't seem to have much of a ground game from what I remember.

    LOL. Tell you what. I watched the beginner division, and there were some extremely talented grappler's in there. NO WAY they were beginner level, and NO WAY they could get that good in under a a year or year and a half. I have been grappling just about evetyday for a year and a half, am a blue that can regularly hang with purples and some browns, and I entered the intermediate division. I got UTTERLY OWNED by the guy that won the division. Not saying he was sandbagging, but honestly he seemed to way outclass the whole division.

    I was in the beginner 180-200 division. I have only been training 8 1/2 months. I won two matches by submission and lost the 3rd on points. I'm pretty sure 3 of the 4 guys that medaled have been training for a long long time, lol. I heard before I even did this tourney that sandbagging was rampant in it, but whatever. I still think I should have beaten the schmuck that beat me, I don't care how long he's been training. I felt superior and fell into his game. Live and learn....
