Last week, I went to Salt Lake City and trained at Jeremy Horn’s Elite Fitness. Jeremy has a great group of guys there to work out with. Joe Doerksen was in town training for a fight and so was Houston Alexander, who also fights on the May 23rd card. In addition to those guys, I also brought Matt Pena out to work on striking, so it worked out good for me. I was there for one reason only: to train. Seems like that’s all I did out there was train, eat and rest. So, I want to say thanks to Jeremy for allowing me out there.
I came home Saturday morning early and went to Dale’s Harley-Davidson and did an autograph session for them. As always, I had a good time. The guys down at Dale’s are great to work with and all the people that came through the line were very respectful. One of the reasons why I like the Midwest so much. After that, I quickly came home and spent some time with the family. Here are a few pictures from the autograph signing:
This week we had some fighters from the HIT Squad compete. At the Pro Battle event in Arkansas, Amir Khillah won at 1:55 of the first round by rear naked choke; Brian Foster knocked out his opponent in the first 7 seconds of his fight; Evan George won his amateur debut by doctor stoppage in the first round. For the M-1 Global event in Bulgaria, Whisper Goodman won his fight by knockout in the second round. So, good job, guys!
Here is an email I received and thought I ought to pass it on:
