This is a selection of the photos that the professional photogs on the scene were able to get. I'm waiting on the pics on Rob's camera so can't put those ones up yet.
The rules meeting just before the day got under way. There were over 120 competitors, quite a fantastic turnout, I would say.
I was fortunate to have a few friends from Singapore there at the competition. Here are some of them, wondering when the action is going to start.
I went for an ezequiel but couldn't lock it in time. Can't say I didn't try.
He almost got both hooks in but I stopped him getting points by underhooking his leg. You can see he's almost got the choke set, he's nearly past my chin.
Here's the mount that I still don't remember how or when I got.
He really wanted the choke. He couldn't get past the chin but he meant business.
Here's how you can tell: the blood that would normally be in my torso is currently in my head. Either that or I really need a tan.
Here's one of the few moments in the match that my head is free.
I didn't actually find any photos of this match that I liked, but here's one that I'm putting up so you can check out the scuffs on my forehead. It's more than 2 weeks later and I've still got them.
