Default Met Cerrone & Leonard Garcia today!

Very cool guys! Cerrone is kind of a serious dude, but very nice. Garcia is all smiles just like in his fights.

Of course, I'm wearing the shirt of the world's best fighter!

Haha, not quite! Competed in the Relson Gracie Inter-Association tournament this weekend. It was my first BJJ tourney. I lost by ref's decision in OT, but I'm happy though because the guy I grappled got 2nd (the 1st place guy had at least 20 pounds on the rest of us) and I owned the crap out of him in the match, but I made a mistake not playing for points, instead always going for subs. It seems weird that in a sport that's all about submissions, attempts and aggression don't score anything, but that's still my fault, I was trying to make a statement rather than just doing what I needed to do to win.

Good times though so now I'll be better prepared for next time out!

Also, got my gi signed by the man himself after my match and he gave me some solid info and advice. Relson and his son Rhalan are some real class acts!

Sweet! I'm sorry you didn't get the W but it sounds like a very competitive and challenging match. Great pics too, thanks for sharing them, Rock.

I love the patch 'these colors don't run'

I don't like tourneys for points. I'm just not good at that because I want to be patient and then just go for my sub. Sometimes, time runs out on me.

I'm very jealous that you got to meet Garcia. I've always really liked him.

Thanks all, it was a great weekend. My wife attended seminars on Saturday and Sunday with Cleber Luciano (4th degree black belt under Royler Gracie) and earned her 1st stripe in BJJ!

That's Cleber on the left and the guy striping her is her Sensei, Rudy Vasquez (figured some Texans would know him).

How did you get such a pretty wife, RD?!?

That's so cool that you both are into MA, her hair is beautiful, it must be really long as it's tucked in her belt...

Kudos to Mrs. Rock.
