One more day till Infinite Combat Championships "REDEMPTION"!

Don't miss the Infinite Combat Championship's "Redemption" Fights tomorrow, October 23, 2010, at 6:00 pm. Fights start at 7:00.

You can still get tickets. Just call the number on the flyer.

Come out and see what MMA is all about and cheer for your favorite local and professional fighters.

See you there!

MMA Class will keep you motivated

Today's MMA class was phenomenal. Matt Bullwinkle teaches the class and does a great job. If you haven't had the opportunity to participate in this class at 10:00 am on Fridays, do yourself a favor and make the time to do so.

Today we had Matt, Mark, Cody, Jeff, and yes, Terry Robinson was there. We were fired up to see him back on the mats so thanks Terry for coming out. It was great to train with you.

Also on the mats were Thomas, myself, and the guys from Red Bay, David, Gary, and Blake, who we were also glad to have back. If these guys keep working with Team AGEMA under Chris, Mark and the other trainers, there is no telling how far they can go. They obviously have talent and I can't think of a better place for them to hone their skills and move to the next level than TBJJ. Thanks to Thomas for taking time to help me out on the arm bars.

The great thing about classes that Matt teaches is that he is very precise with his instruction and goes over it until you get it. When you are practicing what he has taught you he will take the time to watch you and make adjustments so that you get it right, keeping to Mark's belief that "perfect practice makes perfect." He keeps with the strict professionalism that is constantly exhibited by the guys at TBJJ, from Mark and Chris on down. That is why I think the group and the team is the total package. It's one of the many reasons I keep going back.

Great job guys!

Tuesday Boxing Class

Today's class was a very good one. If you haven't gotten over to TBJJ for the Tuesday morning boxing class at 10:00, what are you waiting for? Mark Romano is a fantastic instructor and always makes the class challenging and fun. And if you are looking for a good cardio workout, well look no more.

It was great training with Jake Farris, Josh, and Doc as usual. And we had the good fortune to have David, Blake and Gary from Red Bay, Alabama join us. Even though I kept screwing up their names they took it easy on me and we had a great class. I hope they become regulars. Very talented and strong guys. My head is still bruised. LOL

Thanks to Mark Romano for doing such a great job and being so patient. He makes learning this stuff much easier.

Team AGEMA at Empire Fights "Play-by-play"

TUNICA, Miss. — Having attended a number of quality productions to date, I feel like I am reasonably qualified to judge a production’s entertainment value as a fan. I am never surprised when I go to an MMA event and at least one of the fights on a card is less than exciting. That goes with the territory and I have come to expect it.

On Saturday evening, Oct. 9, 2010, I attended the “Empire Fights: A Night of Reckoning IV” at Harrah’s Casino in Tunica, Miss., as a guest of Tyler Sory, of Empire Fights. I expected the usual high intensity excitement, but I have to report that never before have I attended an event that literally left my hands shaking as my body attempted to deal with the adrenaline.

I am not exaggerating when I say every fight left me on the edge of my seat. Tyler had warned me that David Ferguson of Memphis Judo and Jiu Jitsu had done a phenomenal job of signing fighters for this card but I had grossly underestimated the accuracy of Tyler’s statement.

Eleven fights took place in front of over a thousand fans (I would estimate it to be closer to 1500) and I didn’t hear one complaint all night. Everyone with whom I spoke, and I spoke with many people, were of the same opinion as I and left exhausted from excitement.

Empire Fights "Night of Reckoning" Results

The only word I can find to describe the fights at Harrah's on Saturday night is "DANG!" This was a fantastic event. David Ferguson and Tyler Sory put on a first class event that had most of us shaking from the adrenaline rush long after the Empire Fights "Night of Reckoning" was over. TBJJ's Chris Gates and Mark Romano were a big part of the hubbub as they led Issac Ware and Cody Floyd to extremely impressive victories in what is sure to be one of the best events of 2010.

Here are the un-official results:

1. Jimmy White v Issac Ware: Ware wins split decision
2. Austin Garner v Jeremia Trundle: Trundle wins via rear naked choke
3. Dave Martin v Mike Houston: Houston wins with leg triangle submission
4. Brian Horton v Mike Hall: Hall wins via submission

5. Taylor Callens v Jonathan Burdine: Callens wins, KO via spinning back elbow
6. Shawn Johnson v Dan Schroeppel: Johnson wins decision
7. Dustin Rhodes v Abe Wilson: Wilson wins via KO in first round
8. Harry Johnson v Cody Floyd: Floyd wins in 2nd round TKO
9. Tel Faulkner v Jacob Noe: Noe wins via arm triangle in 1st round
10. Andy Uhrich v Charlie Rader: CO MAIN EVENT -Rader wins via KO in 2nd round
11. Zach Underwood v Austin Lyons: MAIN EVENT - Lyons wins split decision in fight of the night 47-46, 48-46, 47-46.
