I could tell that he felt it a little but it didn't knock him down. I was out of gas and I couldn't go after him like I should have. Each individual aspect of his grappling was good. I've been fighting Japanese fighters and I thought I was stronger but he was better at fine movements and little by little, he chipped away my stamina. Most of my losses have been from being on the bottom and my opponent chopping away at my stamina.
Do you think his was watching out for your triangle choke?
He was sweating and slippery so it didn't feel like I would be able to get it. I almost got mount twice but got caught in the ropes and they tired me. I wanted to leave an impact in my first fight here. I'll do my best to make them ask me to fight again.
