okay so here is my fight review:
My hoomeboy opened up my intro for me: He had his own beats and he was givin a mic to freestyle. I was feeling the beat and gave my atleast 30-45 seconds to himself so he can get some recognition and some hype then i come out. Of course, i come in with my usual swagger b/c u know how i am. Then as soon as i get in the cage the boo's start raining in. I kinda figured this would happen b/c for 1. Even with the rare black fighters that have fought there, I have never heard a black fighter being cheered. 2. Jake Richmond is a fan favortie, he is kinda one of those golden boys that for some reason everybody loves. Dont get me worng the kid has talent but i just didnt think he had the kind of killer insticnt and intensity that i had. I came in with something to prove b/c by alot of people's thoughts i was gonna get knocked out!
1st Round: we come out and we touch gloves and start to circle. his hands were as they LOW!!! So i snap out my jab. It snaps his head back. he acknoledges it with a head shake like it didnt bother him. so i snap out a couple more and his nose instantly starts to run with blood. He comes back with lame Ass leg kick. Funny moment happens here where i pause him and dusted off my knee pimp status style and waved at him to continue. Crowd gets up with her " oohhhh " and then the war starts. i come in with my version of Steve Fox's 1+2 except mine goes up then down instead of down and up. then he hits me with some wild ass hook and bury's my stomach with a knee. Im getting better of the exchanges because for 1. that extra kid i had growing on the top of his eye. 2. Im hearing his side of fans saying Stop The Fight, Stop the Fight, so im assuming im doing atleast better then him. towards the last minutes of the fight. i hit him with one more exchange and then he tries a kick again. at this point i try to seize the opp to take him down b/c that was the whole plan to begin with. I grabbed the kick and tried to take him down but lost control and ended up on my back. he got a couple good hits from top and as soon as he turned i got a good hit from the bottom that i have a great pic off! Round ends to a standing ovation!
Round 2: Same as the first! Me snapping off the jab and small exchanges. then i go for my sonix fang thing again and i as i went for the down part, he hits me in the throat. so i stumble away holding my throat and the ref goes to look at me and then he comes over the top and starts hitting me. The ref litterally throws him of me and everyone thinks he won
Im down and i hear people cheering and shit. Im like wtf, this guy just won on some bull shit! but lucky enough the ref saw that shit and was like hell no, judge the fight up to the point i got hit in the throat. When that got announced, the crowd went nuts with booing b/c they thought there golden boy is going to lose. I hear from the crowd " fuck that nigger “” the monkey is faking it ", " that nigger got knoxked the fuck out " At this point, my brother is going insane checking on me, hearing that shit and telling people to shut up. Drinks got thrown at my brother and HE was then thrown out of the building. Got my sister crying and like 5 people around me trying to convince me to go to the hospital. But i get up and stand for the judges decision 1st judge richmond, 2nd Judge Barber, 3rd judge Richmond. Crowd goes nuts. heard alittle booing but that was mainly from the fighters in the back.
After the fight here are the people that either came up to me or called me to tell me i won the fight:
Both of his Corner men
Both of the promoters of the event
Jake Richmonds Mom
atleast 15 fighters
But according to 2 people called the Judges, they said i lost. I still dont understand how i lost. maybe u guys can tell me how i did when i get the video and post up some pics! I try to smile and let this go and i eventually will but right now, it hurts to lose when i think i won. but i got no choice but to bite the bullet and smile…
