Kingomegared would be proud, you pull guard like a pro. Great job. I'm surprised Naga uses 3 minute matches though. Sub Hunt's 5 minute matches kill me.

Haha, my friends told me the same so they made me take up wrestling my senior year just to get some takedown basics.

And after wrestling season had finished I took up Judo for a season as well.

Of course one season is not enough time to be an expert but I got a good grasp and basic foundation of Judo and wrestling.

Whats you're background bro?

I use to get taken down all the time so I really had to force my guard to be extremely dangerous. So I learned the rubber guard path. I hired a DII college wrestler to teach me how to wrassle and brung is a black belt to teach us some throws. Judo is... well.. the only way I can describe judo is, NOT the gentle way lol. Judo is tough, I don't like judo with a gi anymore. I have actually adapted my wrestling to a counter judo game and my judo game is counter wrestling.
My last fight the guy tried to O Goshi me with a head and arm and I got double unders and side suplexed him. Judo is dangerous in MMA, for both fighters lol.

Anyways, idk why I added all of that but my background is an all around game.
How my game evolved
I sucked at grappling < Kept getting taken down and submitted < Learned defense and how to keep guard < Got a great guard < Still kept getting taken down < Learned TDD (More like learned to whizzer) < Couldn't take anyone down < Learned TDD < Got stuck in guard < Learned to pass guard < Win
This has been a long process but it is really cool out it works
