"The size of your success is measured by the strength of your desire; the size of your dream; and how you handle disappointment along the way". Robert Kiyosaki

While visiting Indiana for the holidays, I had a chance to catch up with pro MMA fighter Evan The Matrix Delong as he prepared for a his upcoming fight.

I think these are well lit and I like the processing, but...
1) to get that shot hunched over you need to have serious 6 pack abs (I don't) or you show a bit of paunch that cuts against your theme.
2) shot #3 kind of says (with a lisp) "oh you bi#ch, I'm gonna slap you!" rather than (deep manly voice) "I'm kickin' your a$$"

#4 is the strongest IMO. I like this one.

ymmv.

Weight cuts suck. We have fighters in our gym. When they ave cutting weight they are real jerks.
