Recently, I heard news of retired former boxing heavyweight champion, Riddick Bowe, making his debut in muay thai. I simply thought it was something to get his name in the press and he wouldn’t actually go through with it; I was wrong. (more…)
Legacy Fighting Championship returns to Houston July 19th at the Arena Theater. In the main event, we will have Angel Huerta and Matt Hobar facing off for the Legacy FC bantamweight title. Hobar earned his spot with a win over Nelson Salas at Legacy 19 in Allen, TX.
A recent addition to the card, we will see recently retired boxing champ Holly Holm (3-0), continue her push as an MMA fighter.
In the other title match on the card, middleweight title contenders Bubba Bush and Larry Crowe will step in the cage to determine who deserves the middleweight strap. Larry is coming off of a devastating tko win at Legacy 18.
On the undercard, Ricky Turcios and Eric Garcia make their professional MMA debuts; Jace Pitre makes his Legacy debut after his return to MMA this past March in Galveston, TX.
UPDATED 6-14-13: Holly Holm will face Allanna Jones in her Legacy debut. Jones is coming off a submission lose to Fallon Fox at CFA 11.
UPDATED 5-29-13: Holly Holm signed a multi-fight deal with Legacy and is set to make her debut at Legacy 21.
UPDATED 5-17-13: Matt Riddle has jumped ship to Bellator. Bellator reportedly bought out Riddle’s contract. As of now, there has not been any word on who and if there will be a replacement for Artenas Young.
UPDATED 5-10-13: After recently being cut by the UFC, Texas native Leonard Garcia, has signed a multi-fight deal with Legacy FC. He will face Legacy vet, Rey Trujillo, in his first fight for the organization. With Leonard’s DGAS fighting style as well as Rey’s dynamic striking, this fight is sure to be one of the most entertaining.

Thanks to BlackSportsOnline for posting this gem. My immediate reaction to watching the video…
Whether you hate him or love him, many want to watch Kimbo Slice fight; even if you don’t want to admit it. Continuing in his post-MMA career, Kimbo Slice notched another win on his belt to move to 7-0 in his career.

I believe the same can be said about MMA/Muay Thai fights. You never hear a fighter say they are getting ready to play against someone; they are getting ready to fight someone. Before they step in the ring or the cage they accept the fact that they will be kicked and punched, and pushed to their physical limits with only a referee in $12 slacks to stand in between them and the other person across from them. In my opinion, all fighters are a little crazy, but in a good way. (more…)
Ever since female fighter Rhonda Rousey was questioned as to whether or not she participated in pre-fight sex, it has been a hot topic in the MMA world (at least in my MMA world). So I decided to take some time off work, clear all my appointments, and cancel visiting family for Christmas this year to dig deep into this subject to find out once and for all, does pre-fight sex matter? (more…)
This indeed brought a tear to my eyes…
Big Floyd still got some moves. After Floys Sr. tries to help this kid out on the heavy bag, he told Floyd he didn’t need any help and could knock him out.
Even though his 56 years old and suffers from sarcoidosis, he still gave this young punk a lesson in boxing. Too bad he couldn’t take the beating and had to resort to dirty tactics. It was all good, Floyd’s boys took care of the garbage.
My boy Kimbo Slice made his Boxing debut tonight against James Wade. The fight ended in straight KO fashion!

I for one wont claim to be a fan of the Klitschko brothers. They are both great boxers, but not exciting at all. Everyone knows what they are going to do before they get into the ring.
Last Saturday, David Haye had the opportunity to get in the ring and dethrone one of the Klitschko brothers while backing up all the trash talking he has been dishing… Simply put, Haye didn’t show up. I would be embarrassed to call myself a Brit.
Here is a video of W. Klitschko simply delivering Ether to David Haye. I don’t think you can come back from this.
I am now a fan of this Klitschko brother and will watch him fight whenever… Video
I’m a huge Roy Jones Jr. fan, and will continue to be till the day I die. BUT Roy, please sit your ass down! I’m tired of you getting knocked out. The world is begging you. I hope this was your last fight.

I had a great time at the 4oz Family Fun Day event. I did some MMA sparring, which was great. I haven’t been in there in the cage in a while. I’ve been spending a lot of time in the ring.
Make sure to check out pics with my family, friends & fans…

Here are some sparring videos from myself and Kristy Kester taken from the past 4oz Family Fun Day on January 8, 2011.
Okay, WOW! It look like Paul Williams was shot in the face by a left hand from Sergio Martinez. I don’t know what else to say. Check out the video:
Thanks Black Sports Online for the quick find.
