This is one of my early kickboxing matches, my third or fourth one, I believe, and it was quite an interesting fight. First off, I could visualize what I wanted to do, and predict what my technique was going to be, and I visualized in my mind what kicks and combos I should use- and when I did, I did them and did exactly what I predicted, and KO'd Weir out! A fast KO in approximate 30 seconds.
On the same fight card, the main event is the Legendary Mansion "The Black Butterfly" Gibson, vs Bill Rastofer.

Razor wanted revenge on me for brutally KO him out the first fight I had with him. He almost did, as he was aggressive, and was winning the fight, striking me more and winning more by points and aggression. He punched me so hard, I could not see out my left eye, and I had to fight blind in that left eye. However, when Razor tried to kick me in the face, I blocked it in a way that I deflected his kick, causing Razor to lose balance, and in that split second, as Razor falls, I kicked him mid-air, a swift kick in the butt, and went for the winning rear-choke and won a Champ Belt.

Levi "Slamking" Shrock was a formidable opponment. His name, "Slamking" aptly describes his amazing, takedown style, for in the beginning of this fight, the first move, Levi grabbed me, picked me up, and slammed me down to the ground. That's amazing. However, despite such an awesome move, he was no match for my striking and stand-up skills in this fight, and no match for my groundgame. I punched him hard, cutting his eye and spilling his blood all over the ring floor.
Prior to this fight, I had to lose like, 20 something pounds and worked all week on that, and the day before the fight I lost 13 pounds or more, by using dehydration and sweat, wearing a special sweat-suit (not a jogger's sweat-suit, but a suit you wear that makes you sweat, it's kinda like rubber). I wore it in the hot sauna, worked out, and drank pedalites. It was very grueling, excruciating exercise, and I was trained by Sgt. Pete Wilhelm of Triton Combat Centers. In addition, I had the flu that week and the flu during the fight, and I was very exhausted and sick, but nontheless, I won.

David's first fight with Razor- David won by KO, in which was on the ground in the dominant Upa position. KO from the ground in MMA are rare, because standing and the stance is needed to deliver the power for a KO punch. However, David pulled it off and won brutally! WOW!

David 'Pygar' Cardamone fought a very difficult ninja, Ace. Who was such a bad-ass ninja. A very difficult opponment, for David and Ace fought four times, and this link, is the one winning fight David beat Ace. Since David cannot see very well, his eyesight is bad and his opponments look like blurry blobs. David cannot see Ace very well because to see black gloves, seeing black on black is very difficult without glasses, so David has a hard time seeing Ace's punches.
David is called 'pygar', named after the blind angel in the sci-fi movie, Barbarella. David is not exactly legally blind, but most people would use that phrase when they put on his glasses to see how bad his eyesight is..
In this fight, a nail-biter suspense where David wins by rear choke in the fifth round, David wins the 'Tapout Fight of the Night' award and see the amazing standing room only applause and cheering and fans entering the ring. See Tonya Harding as manager.
Ace was an amazing fighter. He beat me 3 times.
