Boots Scraps – Awesome Training and My Next Opponent is …
Hello everyone! I am feeling great and doing great! No injuries, training is going awesome and most important I am doing what I love and what I am passionate about; teaching and training martial arts at Ottawa Academy of Martial Arts with my friends and family, TEAM RENZO GRACIE!
I had a rough start for this training camp but finally its coming back to me! We had some special night training with all five of the OAMA fighters; Stephane Bernadel, Remi “Bam Bam” Morvan, Xavier “The Rock” Desrochers, Randy “Relentless” Turner and myself trained by Kru Jeff “H-Bomb” Harisson. All the Pro MMA fighters trained the Muay Thai sparring class with the students of OAMA for 45 minutes, then Kru Jeff got us to train our wresting, MMA sparring and Jiu Jitsu. Heres a few pictures of the special late night training with all the pro fighters getting ready for the WRECK MMA show December 12th in Hull.
I have an opponent switch for the WRECK MMA show December 12th taking place at the Robert Guertin Arena. I was scheduled to fight Guillaume DeLorenzi but unfortunately I will not be fighting him anymore. My opponent is going to be Nabil Khatib who is also from Ottawa. I have known Nabil for a long time and he is a great guy and has a really good kickboxing\MMA background. Every time I fight I want it to be the fight of the night no matter what happens and I am sure that Nabil and myself will put on a great fight and show the fans what a stand up fight is all about! I want it to be a fight full of fireworks! Most of my MMA fights have been against opponents that try to take the fight to the ground. I am very happy that I will be able to test my stand up skills against Nabil who is very experienced and has great kickboxing skills. The fight will be at 170lbs, so I am moving up division for this fight. I believe that it will be a very hard fight for me because of Nabil will be heavier and stronger, he also has more experience then me and has heavy hands. None the less, I am thrilled to fight Nabil and I think it will be great for the Ottawa\Gatineau fans to see both hometown fighters go at it.
