One of my instructors was on tv tonight. I wasnt able to watch it because I had to work tonight, but my girl hopefully taped it for me. She hasnt returned from my dads for me to find out.
Anyways, Trevor Prangley is one of my instructors here at the Lions Den and he was suppoed to fight Jeremy Horn. Now, Jeremy Horn is a very seasoned fighter, former UFC champ, etc etc. He has like 100 fights under his gloves. I know Trevor trained hard for this fight, and I hope that he comes up on top. It would be a neat thing to see.
Now, what's weird is I was thinking, "My other instructor was on National Geographic". His name is Chris Mitter and he was on television with George Dillman and they were proving that pressure point fighting works to the world on National Geographic.
I didnt get to see that either because we dont get that channel, but supposedly real scientists came into play and actually got knocked out using pressure points.
"No, this does not mean I can do this." I have very little study under Hanshi Dillman and I have been able to study Kyusho for about a year. Had I put my time into this study, I am sure I would be able to by now, however, I have studied more fighting arts to this day.
*** Later I watched the fight. I was a little upset with the decision. They gave the fight to Jeremy Horn, I couldnt believe it. I scored round 1 = Trevor, Round 2 = Jeremy, Round 3 = Trevor
Now in BJJ I would have given this fight to Jeremy Horn. He had dominant position more so than Trevor, but this is UFC. UFC there are no position rules, it who is the aggressor and who attempts and succeeds more. Now Trevor stayed in Jeremy's guard and pounded and attempted to pound him. In BJJ since Trevor did not pass the guard, he would not have been given points, however, he was punching Jeremy like crazy.
I know Jeremy has 100+ fights under him, but I could care less about that. Trevor deserved the win or at minimum a draw.
Now it wasn't just me. Both fighters were shocked, the crowd was pissed, and I am sure fans at home saw it. To put it bluntly, the crowd was so pissed about the decision they "booed" the decision. Now that is even more proof that the call was total bullshit.
