Boots Scraps – The First Snow and Winding it Down


Hello everyone!

Today was the first snow! It has been two years since I have had a snowy Christmas.  Last year I was in Hawaii, and the year before I was in Key west.  Funny thing is that I am looking forward to a snowy Christmas this year!

Kru Chris from MAS, Cambridge, has come down to help us train. I did quite a few rounds with him after my strength and conditioning training with Pierre this morning.  Following Kru Chris’ Muay Thai training, I jumped into the MMA Elite class taught by Kru Jeff and Hammer.  In this class, I had the chance to train with Stef, Randy, Xavier and Andrew; the whole team is feeling really strong, including myself! My weight is good, and my strength and conditioning feels great!  I can’t wait for the fight.  I will be making my debut in the welterweight division against Nabil. I am very grateful to be able to step into the ring with Nabil; he is one of Ottawa’s top 170 lbs fighter.  I know that we will be putting on a great fight for all the Ottawa/Gatineau fans on Dec 12th WRECK MMA: Fight for the Troops.

Thanks a lot for all the support.  If you need any last minute tickets – feel free to message me.  I will be off to the hotel with the team on Wednesday afternoon.  I will be seeing everyone Dec12 !  Not only will you be able to see the best fight card in Ottawa/Gatineau history, but you will be supporting a great cause!  I will be fighting for my instructor, for the OAMA students, for my friends and family, and for the troops!  Win or lose, all I want is to put on an exciting fight and  to keep the crowd on their feet!  I will have the honor to have Renzo Gracie in my corner as well as my instructor, Pat Cooligan.  In addition, I will have all the OAMA students there cheering me on along with my friends and family, so the pressure is on.  Enough stress, I can’t wait to get it over with!

I will be training the whole week until my fight since my weight and my energy is good.  I will be updating you guys once more before I go into my ‘lockdown’ and focus at the hotel.  Take care everyone, and be careful on the roads!

  1. Good luck Mark! Maybe size won’t matter…? Make it about the motion in your ocean!
