Rampage vs. Rashad:  No Whining

For all of you complaining about Rashad Evans' performance against Rampage last weekend, Wake UP! This is MIXED martial arts.  People said it was boring, I didn't think so, I was entertained in seeing if he could implement his gameplan, and we all knew what that was, against an angry Rampage.  People said they wanted to see Rashad stand in front of Rampage and go toe-to-toe... why the hell would he want to do that?  So he could get knocked out?  Rashad's not an idiot and he obviously knew that he was facing a guy with plent...

Hello everyone and Merry Christmas, I am home in St. Louis visiting with most of my family. Two of my brothers are not in town because they are visiting their in-laws but not to fear as 3 of my brothers and my sister are all here. The best part about 2 of my older brothers being out of town for this holiday means that I will be able to sit at the adult table today (I am 30 years old and had to sit at the kids table for Thanksgiving when all were in town). I hope you are all having a great time with friends and family and I will continue to feat...

Vegas- Having misplaced my drivers license I had a temporary one faxed to me from the DMV, turns out Las Vegas rental car places won't accept anything photo copied so I couldn't rent a car. Thanks to Gene Stevens for saving the day by picking me up and brining me to the MMA seminar and expo at the MGM, not to be confused with the UFC fan expo which took place on Friday at Mandalay Bay. I attended both but enjoyed the one at MGM more, even though there wasn't as much going on it was way less crowded and easier to get around. I got a chance to m...

I have attended a number of mma events from California to Florida and in between, and last night in Nashville just reconfirmed something that I have seen on both coasts and in between, complete unappreciation of the sport of mma and the constant booing and criticizing. Now this doesn't come from everyone or even most, but there are plenty of guys sitting up in the stands who "know everything about mma" and they kinda get on my nerves. These are the casual mma fans who don't really get it all the way, they want to see a Stephan Bonnar-Forrest G...

D.I.T.L 6  Training at ATT!

Man where do i start! I took a week off from coaching and I got a chance to head down to Coconut Creek, FL to train at ATT's Headquarters. I lucked up and pretty much everyone was in town. I got a chance to roll, box, or drill with some of the worlds best. I'll try to nutshell this as best i can. My trip started Sunday. I got into town and hung out with an old teammate JP Reese and just kicked back. Monday i went to a local wrestling practice between two rival HS teams (Gibbon and St. Thomas). The tension was high as that thang! It was weird I ...

October 29, 2008 Hey what the dealio? Just getting back from a trip to Chicago. I had to kill like 4 birds with one stone on the trip. I went down to check out the Overtime School of wrestling, do some recruiting at some local Chicago powerhouses, watch UFC 90, as well as try of for the TUF show. So needless to say it was a long week. I’ll backtrack and give you the play by play on how everything went down. Day 1 October 23, 2008 I left SIUE and hit the road to make a trip to Overtime School of Wrestling in the Chi. Man?it was raining the w...
