  6. Congrats to Roy! I knew he was good because he won a 4 man IFC tourney but when i saw this interview he said he had no jits. Never been to a class!


    Misha has a lot of people who say he is the best grappler in Canada so I thought this might be easy work for Misha.

  8. Roy weathered the storm early on, showed some great skills and cold blood. He hung in there with Misha and despite being disadvantaged size wise, he rolled with the shots and was never in real danger. Both guys were exhausted in round 2, but it’s Roy that had the most left.

    I didn’t know who W-1 was until two weeks ago. All I have to say is wow!

    I have been to many shows, that was fantastic. The croud went crazy when Roy pulled the armbar on Misha.

    If Misha wants to progress in the sport, he needs to fire his trainer and manager.

    “If Misha wants to progress in the sport, he needs to fire his trainer and manager.”

    What he needs is a promotion that doesn’t set him up like that. He was only 1-0

    I don’t think Misha was set up to lose at all. If anything… they were looking for another good opponent for him to keep him on the card. He is the best grappler in Canada, has won huge tournies and beaten tons of recognized BB’s. Why would any org want to set up a guy like that? They wouldn’t… its MMA, shit happens. Misha is a warrior and will be back, Roy should have some big things in the future taking a fight like that on short notice against such a talented guy and winning.

    I was at Michas first fight where he “ragdolled”, for no better term, and completely overwhelmed his opponent in a one sided demolishment. (I respect anyone who steps in the cage and Jeff Doyal has my respect for taking the fight with Misha.) That being said, i was there last night and Misha had many opportunities to finish that fight in my opinion. If any one should be fired its the strength and conditioning coach as Misha obviously gassed out. Last night was first hand evidence that a even a great grappler like Misha will revert back to a white belt without the endurance to support his size and abilities… ( in all honesty i dont think anyone should be fired , each fight is a learning experience for fighters and coaches and im sure that misha will be put on a very different program and will come back with an arsenal equipped with a new found cardio! And as Don Cherry would say to the up and coming hockry player, i will say to the up and coming fighters!!!! ….”kids, learn from this…..dont make the same mistake he did!!!!”

    Not to take anything away from Roy! he was great and very entertaining. He got out of some ugly situations, put Misha in some uncomfortable situations and weathered the power of the storm until it litterally had nothing left and picked him apart! I would love to see a rematch down the road with these guys… Winner or loser both tremendous athletes!

    Misha does not have a strength and conditioning coach.

    If I were Misha’s manager, I would have been a little hesitant about fighting a Caesar Gracie fighter on short notice. I can already tell you that Boughton has better sparring and training partners (both of the diaz brothers, Jake Sheilds, Gilbert Melendez, et al).

    Misha only trains with people he can dominate and does not get tested. Well….he was tested by Boughton, who weathered the storm and was able to drown Misha in the deep end.

    Had they actually researched him, they would have known he is coming off a win on June 4 and was 3-0. I believe this is mismanagement and that is why changes need to be made.

    I would go to Montreal and train at Tristar with Firas and do strength and conditioning with Chaimberg for 6 months or forever. As well, he could also to to Xtreme Couture is Vegas and train with Randy.

    Misha needs to go to facility where he is not the best fighter/grappler/athlete. Being taken out of his comfort zone daily will accelerate his development and take him to the next level.

    He is an elite athlete and could be a champion, but not if he does not make some major changes now.

    I noticed that he has a fight scheduled in BC in July. Again, if I was his manager, I would shut him down for 3 and more likely 6 months to train at a different camp. His confidence cannot be good right now and 2 losses in a row would be disaster.

    John Fraser is the most underrated fighter in Canada. I believe he is the best 145 pounder in the country.

    Misha’s problem is that he is a big fish in a small pond. He definitely needs to fight professionals his size and larger. He found out what it was like to go against someone just as good if not better than him and he withered. Time to cut the cord and try out some professional camps!!!!
    Either that or he will be a doorman where people say, “man that guy is tough”!!!!
