Fight Recap

I won my fight on friday night. Here's how it went down...
The commission was an hour and a half late so there was a delay--no big deal.
My opponent, after watching me warm up, requested that the rules be changed to allow headgear and shin guards. --I was not happy about this.
I protested but the athletic commission cannot force a fighter to fight even if he had agreed beforehand. So I was forced to wear headgear but not shinguards--he wore both. There was fear in his eyes.
The fight begins and I throw a knee to the chest and we clinch up and trade a few knees. I nearly throw him out-of-bounds trying to throw a slingshot knee. My opponent throws a few kicks at my head that I block with my elbow. A minute and 10 seconds in to the fight he throws a right kick that I check with my shin and immediately follow with a left kick to his body, right cross, left hook angled upward and knock him out. With headgear. Everything feels good and I'm looking forward to fighting again.
I feel like my conditioning was good although the fight wasn't long enough for it to be truly tested. Taking the week "off" but I'll do some light kettlebell work.

I would have requested full body armor and a flame thrower.
