Just found out a few days ago that Robbie Lawler will fight Jake Shields on the Strikeforce card on June 6th, in St. Louis. It’s great to have Robbie fight that close to home. We were worried that he would fight in the month of May close to my fight, so it actually turns out to be a pretty good schedule. As always, Robbie’s a performer and puts on fights that people want to see.
This last week was a great training week. I trained twice a day up until Sunday, in which I only trained once. On the weekend, Pat Flanigan brought a couple of his grapplers down, Mike and James. Saturday morning we went down and played a good hour of HIT Squad dodgeball and then did a little over an hour of grappling. Saturday afternoon we had another practice at Rising Sun Martial Arts here in Hillsboro. We also practiced there on Sunday morning, before they got back on the road. One of the guys Pat brought down, James, was a Pan Am grappling champion. Great to roll with, he’s going to come back in about a month and do the same thing.
Me and Pat…
Finally, if you’re in a fight, you definitely want this buddy of mine in your corner. He just got done helping me out and is now 49-0.
YOU THE MAN…. THANKS!
