I've read that a guy name Felix Valencia is undefeated in the Dog Brothers gatherings. Who else has been undefeated?

the gatherings are about much more than ''winning'' or ''losing''. this is why no one-NO ONE  gets recognition with 1st place, 2nd place,etc. and fight records are not kept (maybe personally they are, but you won't hear next up is so and so who's 64 wins with only 2 losses). if you've come to the gathering -in my opinion- to come and claim your gold medal you've come for the wrong reason.

I know what the gatherings are about. And someday I'll feel confident enough to test myself in the Gathering...win or lose. I've read about a guy name Felix Valencia and was simply just wondering who else has never lost. Anyone?

Woof M.:

When you write "I was simply just wondering who else has never lost." you accept a premise which we do not-- so how can we answer?  To answer it in its own terms begins a trajectory which does not interest us-- and to answer in our terms is non-responsive to yours.

So I will leave it at this.  This fighter is the only fighter we have had who described his experience in this way.  Make of it what you will.

The Adventure continues,

The main objective of most fighters at the gatherings is not to "win" or "lose" and the gatherings are not set up that way.  The only possible criteria one could use to maintain that he was undefeated would be to have never tapped out, been KO'ed, or had to quit before time was called. With this as the criteria, there are probably scores of fighters who are "undefeated", although most of them would probably never make this claim.

learn, grow as a fighter and test your skills. no paychecks, medals, scores - just warrior spirit. it's how I see it. thanks to all who keep it that way.
