This last weekend Tanner Rice and I faced off once again at the 6th American Cup in San Jose and it was another exciting match! We were in a bracket of three, the other competitor being close friend of mine and training partner Marcus Antelante.
First Marcus and Tanner faced off and Marcus came out on top by ref's decision. Next it was Tanner and I. Our match was another action packed battle like always, this time ending up 2-2 with two advantages for Tanner and one for me. This was the sixth time we have fought each other and the count now stands at 3 wins for me and 3 for him.
Check out the whole match here with multiple camera angles and full commentary at http://new.livestream.com/americancup2013/events/2042074/archives. The match starts in the video titled "American Cup 2013 Day 2 Afternoon Part 2" and finishes in the video next to it titled "Am Cup D2"!
After our match Tanner went on to defeat Marcus in the final coming away with the gold leaving Marcus in second place and me in third!
Now I'm getting ready to head out to Las Vegas tomorrow morning to fight in a stacked division that includes high level competitors such as Outavio Sousa, Marcelo Mafra, Lucas Rocha and Magid Hage! Can't Wait!!
Stay Tuned! Ossss
