    Superfight NoGi (Video) Electric Chair Sweep Secures Championship Status

    June 8th, 2013 -- Myself, James O'Brien versus Chip Gerber (http://www.teamanimalpower.com/fighters.htm)

    By now I'm walking around at 130 lbs. Chip Gerber came down from around 160 lbs to meet me at 140 lbs.

    I look forward to reviewing this event with the rest of the 10th Planet Community. Thanks, everyone!

    Enjoy (:

    Nice job, James! I really like your style. I personally would have pulled guard much sooner. That's just me. But you did your thing and got the win. Congrats man!

    Thank you, sir!
    I appreciate knowing my style is entertaining as well as effective (:

    Going into this superfight I knew my opponent was an All State Wrestler and coming down from around 160 to 140 lbs.
    I had several goals going into the match. Besides from winning. I really wanted to score a takedown on him. Eventually I did xD

    Also, knowing he was cutting so much weight I thought I could wear him down throughout the match to hopefully cause him to expose himself for a submission.

    I felt as if I wore on him, but I failed to gain a position where I could attempt a significant submission..
    -- I went for a straight ankle lock/Calf slice twice from top guard when he had the body triangle, but my corner tipped him off each time causing him to unlock his legs, eliminating the position I needed for that submission attempt.

    Sometime after the match I learned that Chip Gerber has won NAGA 6 times!
    Our match aside, I find that accomplishment to be notable and a feat I'd like to strive for.

    There's only one thing I think you could do differently to change in your game.. This is basically the only thing keeping you from going to the next level....... A Marvel Comics t-shirt. So much DC! Haha, I love your style man. Great job.

    I'm genuinely laughing because of our last conversation about points versus submissions xD

    I posted a gold medal match in the forums a couple days ago, it was titled:

    Triangle Choke from Turtle (Video) Gold Medal Match

    That match was 2 weeks prior to this match here.
    Did you get a chance to view it?

    Thank you for your kind words, Tori!

    Watched it. Not bad. Good set up on the triangle. Nice staying chill with your lockdown too. I haven't been able to get on everyday so I missed watching that one somehow. My husband posted one of of me not too long ago. It was in the Strikehard 2 tournie thread. It was me and a few others from our team too who had more matches than I did.
