Our team was on a high after Johnson's win. As a whole, we’re really coming together as a team. Everyone is feeling a lot more comfortable with each other, and there's some concern that some of the guys are getting a bit too at ease with the other team as well.
It’s easy to forget that this is a competition, and some of the guys on the other team are very good at extracting information, including Walsh, who was always asking lots of questions. He’s a great guy and could be a member of the CIA with his tactics.
On the other hand, some of our guys were all too eager to share their fight history. got wind of this and called a meeting. At the time it seemed kind of funny, but he was right in that the Aussies were probing for information.
Personally, I like all the Aussies, but I am trying to distance myself. For now, it’s all about Team Canada!
Our special guest at the gym this week is "Shaolin" . If you don’t know who is, he’s a multiple-time Brazilian jiu-jitsu world champion with a record of 20-5 in MMA. This is the type of guy that I like to learn from, and it was truly an honor having him instructing us.
As a team, we were having group dinners with mainly , and myself cooking. Chad , Elias and Olivier -Mercier were mostly on salad and dish duty. It’s awesome that the team was bonding the way it was. We're all here to win, but it's comforting to know that I’ll be leaving this place with some new friends.
Training was going well and I woke up early on weigh-in day to help Elias cut weight. The cut went very well....
