I caught up with Legacy fighter Jermaine Anugwom before a photo shoot for the gym was getting ready to take place. Naturally the photographer saw me and wanted me in some shots so be on the lookout for those on WindySportandFitness.com, spoiler alert I’m doing the Burt Reynolds’s Playgirl pose but way better. Anyways, enough about me let’s get to the real reason I was at the photo shoot, to interview Jermaine on his upcoming fight with Chris Reed. (more…)
Legacy Fighting Championship is starting off the new year with a bang! In it’s first event back in Houston in 2013, it’s headlined with two title fights as well as solid under card. In the main event we have Derrick Lewis making his first title defense against 16 fight veteran, Ricky Shivers. In the co-main event we have “Macaco” Patino defending his light-weight strap against Derrick Krantz who has won 3 out of his last 4 fights, including 1 in Bellator and last two in Legacy. This will not be a card to miss! You can check out the main card on AXS TV.

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…)
