I spoke to the promoter today (Sat Aug 11). He said his card was pretty full, but he might have someone he can match me up with. Another 205lb guy with limited experience. I told him to let me know ASAP. We'll see, I guess...

TWO WEEKS until fight night! I have been sticking to my nutritional program with great results. I have dropped 16 pounds in three weeks, and I can hardly notice. I never believed in "cutting weight" quickly, but I did need to shed a few lbs, and now I can legitimately fight at 205.
I am just keeping it simple, avoiding unused calories and maintaining a balance between proteins, carbs and fats. I have also cut out red meat for a while. I feel great and my strength has not suffered at all. In fact, I feel stronger all the time. I still have my well crafter gut, but I am not sure I want to lose that anyway, chicks dig it
If anyone is interested in going up there, let me know. I am goign to need some help in the corner!

Well guys, I put up a good effort, but lost with 20 seconds left in the last round. My cardio was good, but I made a few small mistakes that my opponent capitalized on. I also missed by a hair on a few follow up punches after rocking him with straight rights and right crosses. Had those connected, things would have been very different, I think. Eventually, he got my got my back and I couldn't shake him. He was landing quite a few shots to the side of my head, but I blocked many of them. I just couldn't get out. It was was a battle, though and a great learning experience. Thanks, Keith, for working my corner, man! My face is well battered, LOL. Looks awful but it didn't hurt then and doesn't hurt now, though my neck is stiff as heck!!!

For those of you that weren't able to make it, Kyle did a GREAT job. (Even if it doesn't LOOK like it). The guy he had to fight had appeared to be much taller, stronger, and more experienced.. despite what looked to be a disadvantage, Kyle REALLY put it to him!! He even had the guy on his heels as he hit with a punch that almost put him down for the count! It was a good fight. Great job Kyle! Keep up the good work!
