we're gonna be looking to have a grand opening party next saturday, and wanna get a bunch of stuff fixed up and painted before then. If anybody has any painting stuff or any time to contribute, please let us know. Everything helps.
And, if anyone has any suggestions for what to do with the space, everything is appreciated.
So, speak up kids. And lend a hand.

So, it's been too long since i've put anything up on the site. I've had lots going on and it's something that I kinda have just let go a little too long. Last week i wasn't feeling great and had a bunch of bummer stuff going on in a bunch of different areas of my life, so i really wasn't thinking about posting anything. Anyway, sorry bout that.
So, I have a fight Oct 2! It's in San Diego, but if any of you kids wanna come, you def should. It should be a… Continue

This weekend in Primm, NV, I got to spend a lot of time reading. I really have no time for it otherwise. But, at the airport waiting for boarding, sitting on the plane, and my many hours in the hotel room waiting to go to medicals or weigh ins or the fighters check in were perfect places to catch up.
I finally finished reading the book "A Fighter's Heart" by Sam Sheridan. It was given to me a few years ago and I had started to crack into it a few times, but never even broke… Continue

Saturday came and the fights were getting underway. I was asked to help corner Mike "All World" Ryan, a veteran professional who could use an extra hand in the corner. I was excited to lend a hand, having eaten dinner the night before with him and some friends including Kru Lek and Gary Finnerty. It was good to still be a part of the fights, even if i wouldn't get a chance to punch anyone.
It was a little surreal. I got a chance to be there, wrapping hands…

So I know you guys heard all about my fight coming up that was all set for this past weekend in Primm, NV. First, i was supposed to fight for the US IKKC title against Scotty Leffler. But, when scotty suffered a rib injury in training, he was forced to pull out. Needless to say, i was disappointed, but it was only a few days before a replacement was found. My replacement Shane Oblonsky, is a professional champion himself. He earned himself a belt when he recently knocked Joey… Continue

So, there's something that Kru always says to me before i fight. Sort of to ease the tension, but also because he really means it... he says "remember, anyone can fight hard. fight sexy"
Maybe the most important part of really setting the mood for the fight is the entrance song.
Most guys go with something metal or really gangster rap. Not me, I take the goofy approach. I've come out to "do ya think i'm sexy" by Rod Stewart, "love train" by the o'jays and "you… Continue

So, there's one other thing i wanted to post about tonight, but couldn't make the last post any longer.
Ok, so I grew up playing soccer and love the sport. I was super pumped when i heard that Philadelphia would finally get an MLS team this year. I joined the Sons of Ben, the supporters club, and got a season ticket in the River End at PPL park for the Philadelphia Union.
I've gone to all the home games but two, one i missed due to fighting that… Continue

Yesterday was a good day of training. Me and Smash took a ride up to train with Eric "Hooligan" Utsch in Allentown, PA. He's a great training partner, and a good dude. I love training with him for a few reasons. First, he loves Muay Thai as much as I do, which is rad. Second, and most importantly in a training partner, especially a sparring partner is that he is always conscious of safe training and able to go hard without any injuries.
Sometimes, less experienced students… Continue

It certainly is early as a Mufugah.
I had a good hard weekend of training this weekend. Actually, the last few days of training have been really good. I'm starting to feel a lot sharper. 2 weeks out from a fight is actually a refreshing stage to be at. Mentally, you're ready, not because you no longer have any doubts and you're supremely confident, but because you know it's actually happening. There's no worrying about it, because they'res no time to. It's like Jesse Ventura says in… Continue

I've been lazy the last few days when it comes to writing down what's going on. Terrible shame, that is, considering sooo much has been going on. I've dug myself in a bit of a hole for this update.
So, this week, I was 3 weeks out from my fight on aug 28th in Primm, NV. The last little update shared with everyone that my opponent was injured and they would need to find me a replacement. Thankfully, lots of people wanna try to beat me up, so it only took a day or two before… Continue

So today was a wild one.
I woke up too late to do all the things I needed to before my first training session. I really hate rushing. I hate not having the time that I need to do the whatever it is I'm doing. I hate showing up places late. But, that was my morning.
Jenn "Smash" Szeker was a friggin rad training partner and woke up earlier than most humans to come kick stuff with me. She's the best. We started with a run at about 7:30. After our run, we roped and shadowed a bit,… Continue

today was a very long day.
I was up at 5:15 to train with Andy this morning. He's super diligent. Two times a week he comes in at the ass-crack of dawn, 6am to train with me. Always, like clockwork.
after a good morning of working Andy out, we went for some breakfast. i got an omlette and a much needed cup of coffee. delicious food in my new hood.
Kyle "Strictly Bizz" Hillman and Jenn "Smash" Szeker met us for a bite and the three of us said bye to Andy and started… Continue

It's been a long day. So, most of you know that i'm fighting for the IKKC US 147lb title against current champ Scotty Leffler at Buffalo Bills Casino Resort in Primm, NV at the end of this month. If you didn't, now you've done been told, kid. I wanted to keep everybody updated on how my training has been going, so i'll keep blogging about stuff as much as i can.
I'm pretty tired right now, been a kinda long day.
Usually, fight training has… Continue
