Some private wrestling footage of me and Gaz at my private mat room. Lots more to see of me and him here
Yes, this really happened. Maybe he didn't know what he was grabbing onto.
I love watching old school Vale Tudo fights--the skill level at the beginning of mixed martial arts was very primal and basic. The sport hadn't yet become regulated and gloves weren't always required for competition and training. This was all happening while I was in college, so I had lots of fights like this in martial arts schools and privately with training buddies or random opponents.
There's something awesome about the way the blonde dude in this match, Tom Glanville, suffers--you can watch this fight HERE at about 18:45 in.
This guy was fun to wrestle because he was so cocky and so sure he'd have an easy time with me. Watch and download these brutal matches here.
Watch this dude training with a heavy bag-grappling and striking drills. His other videos are amazing too.
Me and this guy used to have weekly hardcore battles in my private mat room Punching, wrestling, knees to the body--you name it, we did it. Here are some gifs from the private video footage of our fights.
One of my roughest matches to date. Watch and download the entire video HERE
