European champion – Nogi Euros IBJJF June 2013
European Champion – 73.5kg Blue belt (5 wins, 4 subs) Had the RNC sunkin in the final but just ran outa time
Bronze – open weight (1 win, sub) (1 loss, advantages)
Had a tough match in the second round against a judo guy he beat me in Scotland but I’ve been practising some standup and it paid off, was able to capitalise on one of his takedown attampts and eventually got the sub.
Pat met Lee Renault in the early rounds and had a similar match with him as I had the previous day but Pat managed to get a sweep in, unfortunately he was reversed and lost out. I met Lee in the final and didn’t take him lightly this time, had him in a few subs but just ran outa time.
Absolute went well but just lost out on advantages in the semi’s to a wrestler, pulled guard after a few minutes. Combinations were coming together better but he was a couple of weight classes up from me which made the difference.
