  • Jon Jones Signed Program from Ultimate Combat Radio

    The folks over at Ultimate Combat Radio recently contact me and asked me to share the following information with you all:

    Subject: Jon Jones

    Hi there!

    This last weekend Joe Martinez and I went to UFC 135 on behalf of Ultimate
    Combat Radio. While we were there, we got to see what goes on behind the
    scenes and meet with a lot of the fighters, coaches, celebrities,
    production, etc. We also scored something pretty amazing to give out to a
    VERY lucky listener this week…. They say you’re not a champion until you
    have successfully defended your title. Jon Jones did just that Saturday
    night. After his fight, as he was being escorted out in a wheelchair, the
    light heavyweight champion was kind enough to sign an official program for
    us to give out to a lucky fan.

    We are going to give this piece of history to a listener, as long as they
    are a fan of our facebook page. Can you please spread the word?

    www.facebook.com/UltimateCombatRadio

    Thanks!

    Sincerely,
    Robertina Tsibulskis

  • Bony Acai, Fitness, and the Fat Man

    Last night I took stock a little bit on my health.  I’m 41 years old, and definitely over weight.  The over weight part isn’t really anything new, but for some reason it “feels” different.  I just feel further gone than I have before.  It’s time to do something.

    As I thought back, the last time I was really feeling good was a year or more ago.  I was working out regularly, had dumped my energy drinks, and had followed the example of a friend, who was trying Bony (and I had noticed a difference in him.)

    Problem is, I’m impatient.  Sure, losing a pound a month for three years would put me at a much better weight.  But I just don’t know if I can stand such tiny gains.  I need to see a reasonably change at least up front if I’m gonna keep motivated. (yes, I know that the slow process of gain is how I got here, and I should be equally happy to lose slowly… but hell, I’m the 7-11, wikipedia generation!)

    So, here’s my plan:

    I weighed in this morning at 265.

    For the next 30 days breakfast every day is this bad boy, and I will be holding off on the two energy drinks I drink every day:

    Now, I know what you’re thinking: ”Holy crap!  Is that Cthulhu in the background in that picture??”

    Yes.  Yes it is.  Hoping to unleash the best here folks.

    I don’t know how well this is going to work.  But I will be actively blogging about it over the next month.  Hopefully it will jump start a fitness effort for me by getting em motivated with some quick weight loss.

    Minimally, replacing my energy drinks with the Acai will cut some significant calories out of the mis, as well as keep me from falling off of the energy cliff that can happen with them.  At least that was my experience last time I was consuming the stuff.

    So, wish me well, and watch here for results.  Crossing my fat, sausage-like fingers :)

    Ultimate Combat Radio had Stephen Dark on the radio, author of the City Weekly article. Mike Stidham thinks the article shed him in a not so good light. Is this indeed a conspiracy theory as Dark says? Or is there more to this? Here is an excerpt from Stidham’s Facebook about how he feels:

    “It is truly sad that the author of this article went to all the people that hate me to get a story about me. I wonder if a story were written about him, should the author seek out all the people he has written negative stories about to find out who he is?

    I am referred to as having a tempestuous, and bridge-burning attitude. He went back 2 decades and found four people who share that sentiment. I have life-long friends, business associates, and loved-ones that would refute that perspective-including an ex-wife, and people I no longer do business with. Many of them expected to hear from him, but didn’t.

    If you leave my employ, and go directly to work for the competition, it is YOU who burned that bridge….not me.

  • Steven Siler sets the tone for TUF 14

    I was absolutely on the edge of my seat last night as we watched the first round of elimination fights for The Ultimate fighter Season 14.

    One of the fights I was eager to see was a local fighter: Steve Siler.  As he stepped into the ring, Dana White commented about how afraid Siler was of his opponent, Micah, who was heralded as being the favored fighter of the season.  Dana even went so far as marking Siler off as a loss, even before the fight started.

    I just grinned, and looked at my family, and said, “He doesn’t know this guy.  Siler is tough as hell.”

    My hope that Steven would win this fight only became greater as Micah conducted one of the most laughable pre-fight trash talks I have ever seen.  I felt like I was watching an actor from a B movie romance novel remake.  Just silly.

    But back to the fight:

    Siler was spectacular.  He owned the feet (which surprised me a little, as the fights I had seen siler in locally it was his Jits that really impressed me.)  Once things went to the ground, Steven had his hands full with Micah, but eventually Siler ended up ending the fight by submission.

    It was great.  I can’t wait to see more of Steven Siler during this season.  He seems so soft spoken and humble, yet super capable.  Go Steven!!!   We’re sheering for you!

    You can also read Siler’s own insights on the fight and the events in the house on ProMMANow.

  • Utah MMA: Stidham, The Commission and more!

    City Weekly has a GREAT article on Mike Stidham’s journey in Utah’s MMA scene. Be sure to give this a read and talk about it in our forum HERE. It’s long, but boy is it good. It gives you views from people from all sides of the problem. Here’s a little taste:

    “Word of 44-year-old Stidham’s downfall was greeted by some in Utah’s tightly knit MMA community with glee. “He should be in prison,” snarled one fighter, walking into an interview about Stidham with another promoter. Others, however, saw tragedy in Stidham’s rise-and-fall saga. “We’ve all stumbled and fallen,” says West Valley cop Loren Brumley, who fought several pro mixed martial arts bouts.”
