Ah cool. Hope it was a success. That makes sense if the TOS was causing nerve issues, nerve regeneration is very slow so I can understand why you'd still have symptoms. What's the rehab looking like? Don't know if I've worked with anyone coming off that surgery. Basic ROM and strengthening around the joint?

I see. Yea as far as nerve regen goes nothing physically would speed that up that I'm aware of so I was curious as to a protocol for that. Sounds like quite a process but I'm sure you'll do well. Think your in this phase of rehab haha: “The art of medicine consists of amusing the patient while nature cures the disease.” Best of luck to you! I'll leave this here for when you can start strengthening, I've subluxed my shoulder before and doing this series everyday has made my shoulders feel loads better...http://articles.elitefts.com/training-articles/band-pull-apart-super-series-for-healthy-shoulders/

7 Clans is ready. I'll need an official time for the Britt/Hernandez fight, but the round is correct. Results not on UG or Sherdog yet, but MNmmanews.com is pretty reliable.

Hey man, look at this: http://www.tapology.com/ue/23879-636538.png . And now look at the leaderboard: http://www.tapology.com/fightcenter/events/23879-fightworld-cup-18/predictions-leaderboard . I should have scored 480 points, but somehow I lost 50 points. What happened?

Gonna add you on XBL if you don't mind. Haven't played Titanfall in a few months but I've been meaning to get back into it. I'm not great at it either, but I'll play with ya.

Would it be possible to open up Legion Fight: Open for a few minutes? I didn't get to make my picks while the site was down for the last 10 hours. If you cannot, that's fine. I just thought it wouldn't hurt to ask.

Thank you! I really appreciate that. Not that I have a chance to win the weekend, but I always like the opportunity to crack the top 10.
