“At running and at wrestling and at throwing, Shine in the momentum of noble contests” – Olympic Anthem, translated from original Latin The Olympic Games will need to write a new anthem for 2020 as one of the only sports mentioned by name in the original anthem will no longer be a part of the […]

It’s been quite a while since I last checked in with Top MMA News with an update on my training and fighting in Asia.  This isn’t because there has not been anything going on.  On the contrary, every time I sat down to write a blog post something happened that drastically changed what I had to write […]

Hi Everyone, It’s been a while since I posted a blog about MMA and training. For a while there simply was not much to write about. I had an injury that was keeping me from doing too much and my training amounted to a few light workouts a week. With my injury settled, I started […]

Training in Korea has taken a bit of getting used to. Growing up in organized sports I’ve become very used to showing up to practice, having a hard, structured training session and going home. The Koreans that I train with do things a lot differently. It’s not that there are not structured classes, because there […]

This past weekend I headed to Seoul for my first chance to compete in Korea.  It was a little on the wild side to say the least.  From the word go I never really new what was going on.  There were times when I had to check twice just to make sure that what I […]

Georges St-Pierre’s announcement that he would consider taking a hiatus from MMA to attempt to qualify for the 2012 Olympics as a Canadian wrestler has set both the MMA and wrestling communities abuzz. Is he serious? How good of wrestler is he? Can he make the national team? If he does, can he qualify for […]
