    That was a great fight. Nate Diaz and his brother Nick are like the weirdest fighters I've ever seen. They both have this super goofy, dumbass orangutan unorthodox style of fighting. The weird thing though is that when it works, it works incredibly well. Not even because it's practical, I think it's just so weird it massive throws people off. I actually have had tons of conversations with people I bang around with. Every now and then over the years someone will come into the gym, and have like an odd disposition and be physically awkward. In a purely fundamental sense you're an all around better kick boxer. But then he just starts doing some weird shit and even though he's not better than you, he's catching you. You catch on after fighting people like that after a few rounds, but I've had my clock cleaned tons of times by weird gangly people, or people with any type of weird sense of movement. That's basically the Diaz brothers to me.

    So people like Diaz and his brother, they need a lot of attention to train for. I know you love this stuff so I can give you a first hand account of how I'm in a similar situation.

    So I fight 125. Hopefully again in a few months (it's been a while so I'm taking my time). I'm right handed, but I fight with my lead hand forward when I box, which I've just always done. So my jab and lead hooks are right in your face basically. Now I'm not claiming this is a better way to do things, it's probably not for most people. It's just what I've always done, and relative to my size it works for me because you basically can't catch me in a fight. The unorthodoxy throws people off and it's a huge advantage.

    So the fact that Masvidal schooled Diaz that bad definitely means that guy did his homework. It'd be like if you and I fought. I'd probably wreck you at first because I'm this super small unorthodox fighter, but if we kept at it and you paid enough attention to what I was doing you'd eventually figure me out. I might be weird but you can figure out weird if you take the time.

    Holy shit. That looked like anime or something.
    That’s the most knocked out anyone has ever been.

    Yeah dude, if you watch it again, he took a few seconds to fall. I know this part from being a medic - typically with significant head trauma your whole body stiffens. So like if you watch videos of people getting hit by cars they stiffen up right after. That's why that dude took so long to fall, he got his clock cleaned so bad he stiffened up and stayed standing clean unconscious for a few seconds.

    What that dude did worked, but it's a pretty huge roll of the dice to try to pull off. He did it, and it was spectacular and probably one of if not the best knockouts I've ever seen in terms of how shocking it was. But it was a huge gamble because typically what they teach you is you NEVER spin for anything because you have to turn your back. He did something that in my opinion is stupid and I would never teach anyone to do and he pulled it off and got, like you said, an epic anime knockout. That was like a one in a million head kick.

    Like I taught professionally for years and I've cornered for people and I would NEVER be like dude, forget all the boxing and footwork we did, just go Dragonball Z on him. But I mean hey, he pulled it off.

    This just got me thinking that I should go back into fighting pro and you should corner me. You'd probably be awesome at that, haha.

    I’d just get half cocked and quote Mickey lines from Rocky movies between rounds. I’d tell you to eat lightning and crap thunder.

    Yeah one time this guy put nails in his boxing glove and punched my face full of holes.

    We could probably create the ultimate documentary ever if we agreed to just get drunk and see how far we could get fighting if we just had a shitty sense of humor and you were like YOU LOST THE EYE OF THE TIGER KID and we just staggered around after a few shots where you trained me wearing a watch cap slapping me in the back of the head while I do push ups then fight someone. It could be the underdog story, haha.

    By the way, my fight name is Monkey Legs. And the only song I ever walked out to is It's Raining Men because I thought it'd be funny as fuck and I knocked the guy out which is the most hilarious shit ever to me because he came out to gangster rap.

    Yeah I don't think I ever mentioned that on here actually. That was my name. Mikey "Monkey Legs" Sweeney. I fought 125 so I'm pretty small, and I was so small I typically ended up on bottom in grappling matches. But I'm absurdly flexible and like you'd be on top of me trying to hit me but I'd have my legs over my face. There was one day (years ago) where one of my trainers were like DUDE YOU'RE LIKE A FUCKING MONKEY WITH YOUR LEGS because this dude Chuck was trying to hit me but he couldn't get past my legs. So I became Mikey "Monkey Legs' Sweeney.

    I'm officially back in the fight game next week. I've still been banging around but I got convinced to give it a go competitively. I'm 30 so I still have a window of a few years I can compete again. It'll be a few months before I step into a ring, I need to put on some weight. I've been swimming competitively the last few years which is one of the higest caloric demands of any sport - especially since I distance swim. I did the Boston Light swim this past year which was eight miles in open water (it's from Hull, Massachusetts to South Boston, Massachusetts if you want to google map the route), so I'm in great shape I'm just absurdly lean.

    I'm still not sure what I'm going to do weight class wise. Because of the swimming I'm walking around insanely light. I'm probably going to have to fight up, which I'm used to. I'll likely stick 125. I used to fight 135 but that was when I had years to establish a weight and maintain it. I'm not sure I can get that heavy again. I could definitely get to at least 130 and cut the five pounds. I've always been light in fights, most guys walk in much heavier than what they weighed in at. I usually only cut two or three pounds, if anything at all. The one huge advantage is I don't gas in fights from the weight cut, which is a massively underappreciated thing. Weight cutting kills you. Especially considering some dudes at 125 cut from as high as 140-45. So I might be lighter but I'm not totally junk in terms of energy.

    We'll see how it goes. I could get hurt and this might not happen. My knees are absolute junk from all the fighting (I've already been told I'm inevitably going to need both knees replaced), and my feet are all fucked up too because I've broken every toe more times than I can count from kicking. So I'm going to feel it out and if it goes well and I can get back into shape I might be in a ring again before the end of the year.
