Playing catch up again...

It has been a while since my last post and I apologize. I will try and post about every 2 weeks now.
First, I want to say thank you to everyone that has sent me emails of encouragment. I really do enjoy getting them and I think I've been able to reply to everyone of them. MMA really does have the best fans.
I also want to thank my sponsors. The newest one being It is a great website that they update very regularly to keep everyone informed of what is going on in the UFC and MMA in general. Since signing with them I have gotten a lot of positive feedback from regular visitors to their site, which only makes me more excited than I already was to be part of the team. Also, Full Contact Fighter ( has continued to support me, providing me with any training and workout gear that I need, as well as my gear for my upcoming fight.
We are approaching 2 weeks out from the fight and I couldn't be more excited. What a great opportunity for me to step into the UFC and straight into the main event!! My training has been going great. I just got back from a training camp at the Damage Inc. gym in Indianapolis where I spent most of my time improving my boxing with the help of Wes Ramey. I may keep this fight on our feet, we'll see. Either way, I have gained a lot more confidence in my hands.
My strength and conditioning are also right where I want them. I will not get tired during this fight at all.
Other than that, Missy is doing great. She has really taken to being a mom and doing a great job at it. Marcus is wonderful, almost 6 months old now and about to crawl anyday. They grow up so fast.
Take Care.
