Over the years as a head coach and co-owner of a BJJ/MMA gym I’ve learned that. . .
People are cray-zee.
Either that or they watch too many movies.
Like, last Friday I had this guy who wanted to live in the gym and train with me.
He’s planning on going to the UFC and being the champion. Ignoring the fact that he’s in his mid 30s and has never trained before.
Then yesterday I got an email from a person who had requested information about our gym.
After sending him the info, here’s his reply. .
“Laugh out loud. I am trained to be a prize fighter. I do not need orders.
I need amateur fights immediately at 170lbs, and an avenue to quickly go pro at 155lbs. I am 70″ tall, 185lbs, 75″ reach. 11-0 Bjj with one blue belt state title and one blue belt NAGA title. Pure Muay Thai striking (like a actual thai fighter, not this bullshit on tv).
As Connor Mcgregor once said, “I fight at 155 because I have the greatest advantage, without an advantage on height or reach, training is useless”.
The fact that I even sent you an email this long makes me want to run through your roster to prove a point, but it is not worth the potential injuries. I have to protect my fighter lifespan, as I am 30 years old. I cannot take any injuries right now. Period.
Sit on that & respond later,
Gosh. . . it’s so good!
My favorite part is that he spelled out LOL and ended with “sit on that and respond later”
But sadly I won’t respond later because I believe this poor chap has lost his grip on reality.
A sad state of affairs for such a prize fighter.
But this stuff just isn’t like the feel good movies where anything is possible.
And I’m just not going to blow smoke up someone’s butt and tell them they’ll be the next Connor McGregor. It’s not right.
Sit on this video, and I’ll talk to you later.
