I admit, I screamed like a little girl several times during Belcher's recent fight against Rousimar Palhares. And yes, what I screamed at least twice was "Tap!" Good thing he wasn't listening to me. Of course I've seen Palhares crank the crap out of better legs than mine, so I had an excuse-- but Belcher knew what he was doing, fo' sho.

It's on Thursday May 24th 2012 at 5:30pm Pacific/8:30pm Eastern time. Remember this is an online event so anyone from all over the world can join. Make sure you get your spot reserved, though-- here.

I haven't been training much jiu jitsu lately-- gearing up for trial again next week. I've been in the gym every day at lunch, but basically destroying any progress I might be making with snackies. *sigh* A handful of pretzels here, a slice of cheese there, and it adds up. Today I have a sack of baby carrots on my desk, and I plan on making it to class at 8pm. Wish me luck.
