This is as close as I’ll get to Clarking. Not posed btw, this is a live roll.
My Fight Against Tim Mannon
Luckily i was able to finish this takedown and then finish the fight with strikes from the top.
Part of the fight that i was out and have no memory of
In the summer of 2008 i fought the most dangerous opponent i ever fought. I was a purple belt and fought Renzo Gracie black belt Tim Mannon. We traded some strikes early in the first round before i took him down and pushed him up against the cage. I was landing some effective strikes from the top when he kicked me off of him and i remember thinking “that’s fine, we can stand back up.” The next thing i remember i was talking to the doctor in the locker room. When we stood back up he landed a massive right hand and knocked me out. Somehow i was able to defend myself and recover and even swept him and finished the round on top. Between rounds i walked back to the corner and literally fell face first into the cage. In the second round i was able to take him down and finish the fight with elbows from the top. To this day there is a solid 30-45 minutes of my life that i have no memory of.
Jiu jitsu is not about the belt or the piece of tape that goes around. If you need a belt or a piece of tape to keep you motivated or make you feel good then you don’t really love jiu jitsu.
This is the Triangle Jiu Jitsu blue belt test done exactly the way it will be done for the test.
