    Hey guys!

    This past weekend I got third place at the IBJJF Las Vegas Spring Open! I won two matches, one in my division by points I believe it was 7 to 0 and one in the open by submission, bow and arrow from the back, and then lost my second match in both to the eventual champions Marcelo Mafra and Jackson Sousa! Wasn't able to get much video this time though which is a bummer :( Now it's on to the World's! Time to start dropping weight again!! Osssssss
