Erin-First off Congrats on the Victory in your first pro fight.

James-Thank you I worked very hard for that Moment.

EA-What was you expecting going into the fight?

JL-I was Expecting a war knowing that Murphywas better on his feet than me,but I expected to be more effective on my Feet but I just wasn't on his level kickboxing wise.

EA-You Tried alot of Takedowns in this fight I think the Stats said 7 of 23,why so many?

JL-They were pretty effective in the first think it was 5 of 6 in attempts in the first,but he got great advice after the first round and stopped them cold in the 2nd.The Reason I tried so many was I was getting my face re-Arranged when I was standing up so I was trying anything to get off my feet and get it to the grown where it seemed more even or even in my favor.

EA-How many times did he hurt you?

JL-(Laughing)No clue it was alot though,Sometimes I thuaght there was 5 of him in the cage with me,others I was wondering how the hell I ended up in a ballroom getting my buutt kicked.

EA-How rewarding was it when you locked in the triangle?

JL-Rewarding?I was just glad to be in a postion he wasn't Puanching or Kicking my face in.But a fan did send me a funny tweet that somehow got a Smile after the fight it was this picture.

That was indeed most intense on Steve's part for not dieing from that KO'

All we needed to top that off was Dan Henderson to fly out and drop another bomb on him.

Get well Steve!
