Would have taken gold in the 170 weight class as well, but the championship match turned out to be against the same guy I had already beaten in absolute championship. I bowed out and gave him the gold medal.

Despite my back issues, I took 2nd place in no gi expert and brown belt. Not real happy about either loss... The no gi championship was against a guy that was sponsored by Origin. In the brown belt match, I had a choke sunk in with 10 seconds left. The brown belt match was only 6 minutes. NAGA said they follow IBJJF rules. If they did it should have been 8 minutes. Anyway, my back was sore from a slightly separated rib from the tournament, which wrecked something in the front of my ribs on Monday at class. I'm sure it will heal if I give it a chance
