    Was a very tough match. Took him down early with a slam (right onto my sprained finger, haha). Kept attempting to pass guard, but as soon as I did, Bacon would turtle up and then recover guard. I was getting anxious, so after Bacon turtled a 3rd time, I went for the arm in guillotine (one of my best moves), but Bacon grabbed my bad fingers to defend. The ref scored it as a sweep when I went to guard for the choke, so it was now 2-2. As time was running down, I pulled a omoplata, but was unable to finish the sub as time ran out. The decision went to me based on more offense and subs attempts. Bacon was tough, props to him…
