Sorry I’ve been away. Unfortunately I’ve had to go back to un-martial arts-related work to support my family. It makes it difficult to accept fights since I can’t really train enough to accept a fight. Hopefully soon I will win the lottery or meet an extremely generous wealthy person who will sponsor me. Otherwise, I hope to be back to full-time training within a year. I know I still have some great fights left but I need to be able to prepare. Thanks to everyone who has supported me and I will be back soon.

Haven’t kept up too much lately, just been busy.Sorry for the lack of updates.
I’ve been invited to participate in a round table discussion about the last UFC (105) today. It will be televised and more than likely aired this evening so that is a great opportunity for exposure and networking. If you are in the U.S. it’s unlikely you will see it but check out Premiere Combate if you are here in Brazil.
Also, plans are steadily moving forward for our move back “home” to a smaller town about 10 hours away by car. We have been considering the move for awhile and it seems the time is finally here. We are tentatively moving mid-December. There are some great untapped opportunities in my town which make starting something there an attractive proposition. We’ll see how things go but it sounds pretty promising.
That’s all for now. Take care all and have a great time training…

I’ve been kicking around an idea for a weekly technique video or maybe a DVD or both. I’m not sure exactly how to do it though. Better computer guys than myself may be able to assist me and I will definitely consult them. I guess I’m just throwing that out there. I haven’t really seen that sort of feature on anyone’s website. If you have, point me to it so I can see how it’s done.
Other than that, I’m waiting for word on fight opportunities. I hope something comes along soon so I don’t have to spend another 6 months waiting to fight again…
I’ll keep you updated.

That’s my schedule.
The practices were hard and the sacrifices were made. Now it’s time for a little more work before the fun. I need to cut a bit more weight tonight during a workout and maybe a little extra for a pre-cut so I can drink some water before bedtime. It’s no fun trying to sleep dehydrated. Then it’s just a matter of waking up for the real weight cut tomorrow then sitting around waiting until I can get weighed-in and EAT. I have been dreaming about all the different things I want a bite of after weigh-ins.
Get ready for the show. This is going to be a great card. There are lots of important fights on it even if they aren’t the biggest names. The fights being important to the fighters makes the fights better than when the fights are just between popular fighters. There is a lot on the line for a bunch of guys on this card. I’m guessing this card will be one to remember.

Here are a couple of links to some interviews that came out in the media. They both turned out to be more of a human interest piece than a pre-fight interview as you may be used to reading. They asked about that stuff that happened a while back so I told the story again. I guess I wasn’t expecting the interest in that or those questions but I hope it translates into people being interested in my fights and possibly in me as a person. I’m lucky enough to have a generally pleasing fighting style win or lose so if they tune in after reading these things that will be rewarding. Here are the links:
