Long Island MMA at Triton Fights + Holiday training | Long Island MMA news update!
Long Island MMA had a good night this past staurday at Triton fights. Long Island MMA sent in 3 guys to compete. Chris Guariglia was making his MMA debut and was up as the first fight of the night. Chris went out and fought a tough fighter with a lot of skill in stand up, Chris wasn’t afraid to trade punches with him but ultimately got him on the ground each and every round. In the thrid round Chris got reversed from mount and ended up on the bottom, Chris was able to scramble and find an arm-lock finishing his opponent in the third round. Next up was Long Island MMA’s Mike Fitzroy, this was Mikes 3rd MMA fight but mike looked like a real veteran. Mike opponent much likes Chris’ was one of the tougher people on the card. Mike showed his improvement in his stand-up and wound up winning an unanimous decision. Asheik Ajim who was suppose to fight on the card vs Dennis Stamp, didn’t get a chance to compete in MMA but Triton set up a grappling match for him instead. Ashieks opponent came in 10 lbs over weight so he was not able to fight. Triton set up Ashiek in a grappling match against Stamp’s teammate. Ashiek looked calm and confident as he was able to attack his opponent the entire time. Ashiek did not get the win because of the submission only rule set but it was a fun contest to watch. The match ended in a draw.

To beard or not to beard? This is almost never a question for me. I know were in the thick of November and every bro out there is rocking either a mean stache or grizzly beard for, “no shave November”. However, having a beard and training SUCKS! I’ve been going hard for almost an entire year with out shaving. My beard is rather lush at this point. I’ve taken good care of it too. Thanks to the Savage Sergio for pointing me in the direction of Savage Mane, my beard is often silky smooth yet more manly smelling than Ron Swanson. To be quite honest there aren’t many reason that I would ever want to go beardless. Shoot, I’m getting hitched in 3 months and my fiancée has even asked me to cut my beard down (she didn’t ask to take it entirely off) but needless to say I considered sending her packing for such outrageous request. However, I’ve come to cross road in my person beard journey. Getting your beard ripped out hurts like B&*^# ! Not even joking, my first few days back into training I was expecting my muscles to perhaps be a little tender and sore. Nope! Not even the case, my freaking face hurt ( yea yea insert it’s killing me too joke here). My chin and cheeks were tender to the touch. During class we were drilling different guillotine entries and each and everyone sucked more than the last. I was put into a rear naked choke and the person’s arm was trying to get passed the fortress my chin beard had created but in turn the tugging made my lip dangle like I was packing some skoal. Nobody wants to tap from getting there facial hair ripped out but I have no shame in admitting that the pain from having my face follicles distressed certainly made me consider it. Did I mention the unsightly mess it leaves on the mats too? I won’t even digress into an analogies of the beard hairs on the mats but with a heavy heart and imminent regret looming I think it’s time for the beard to go
