“Drew is a tough kid. I threw everything I had at him and he didn’t go down. I knew he was a good wrestler but I had been traininging originally for a black belt in jiu-jitsu so there was a slight change in plans but I felt prepared. Im just glad I got a fight in. Im still growing into my game and getting better every time Im out there.”
