Slowly, over the few days after the fight, it all started to sink in and I could at last appreciate what I'd been a part of. The support both before and after the fight from friends and MMA fans here in the UK has been incredible.
Last week I tore a tendon in my shoulder and the pain was really very bad. I would say definitely worse than childbirth, but in the event of first-hand confirmation being unlikely, I'll have to settle for probably worse than childbirth.
This week my training has successfully focused on getting everything ready for my upcoming fight. Each week covers many different MMA techniques and general fitness work; this is what I've covered over the last 7 days.
