    Jeff's in metro accessible and is a Great palce to train.
    I went to see where Jeff's gym was located. It's in a really dangerous neighborhood. Next door to an Irish pub and across the street from a Five Guys.

    You've been out of the States too long, Matt. My friend is trying to get me to join a BJJ gym that is $155/month for 3x week. I think $149/month for unlimited classes and the chance to learn from a champion is pretty reasonable.

    Yeah, I think $150/ month for unlimited is a fairly average rate unfortunately. Every hobby has its expenses.

    kinda. I was Llyod's first thai boxing instructor back in the day. I helped Jeff when he was getting started.
    I will be there tomorrow rolling with Ryan at Jeff's.
    I support Jeff and his team 100%
    I started with Mr.K before I met Lloyd in 95 I believe.
    I met Jeff at K's house.
    You train there????


    Wow, you are old school. Respect (with a capital R)! How did you first learn muay thai?

    Lloyd Irvin's guys definitely seem to be doing something right. That team is beastly. I like watching Ryan Hall's matches on youtube haha.

    I went to see where Jeff's gym was located. It's in a really dangerous neighborhood. Next door to an Irish pub and across the street from a Five Guys.

    This is kind of unrelated, but do people from DC ever walk into Five Guys, grab a handful of peanuts, and jet? I can just imagine starving students stealing boxes of peanuts nonchalantly.

    I thik I might show up.


    I have always wondered about the peanuts and jetting myself.

    I learned Mauy Thai from semiars at first which ended up being fasle then met Mr.K and it all started there.
    LLyod's team is wired correctly no doubt about that.

    Another reason the 10-point-must system is retarded, on the Pride system that would have gone to Jackson. Everybody in the bar thought it would be split for Jackson, but unanimous for Forrest? I want to see the fucking math.

    Rampage did not deserve to win that fight.

    The scores were:
    49-46
    48-47
    48-47

    I don't see how it's at all possible to get the 49-46. round 2 was arguably a 10-8 round, though forest did no visable damage to Rampage thoughout the whole fight. I'd say Round 1, 4, and 5 were rampage.

    You must have seen a different fight than me.

    Sorry it was two judges had it 48-46, and one judge had it 49-46.

    Those rounds should have gone to rampage because he came out ahead in trades every time. Forrest took him down from the clinch several times because he needed to recover. I think Forrest's face is proof that he didn't take those rounds.

    What about all those leg kicks? In the post-fight interview Rampage made it pretty clear that those hurt him pretty bad.

    Yeah but not enough to sway the fight. If forest had kept kicking the leg until he couldn't stand, then it would mean something. It was only 2 kicks that got him good, they just showed them over and over.
