I’m very excited about this weekends UFC 134 card.

First off it’s very cool that it’s taking place in Brazil and even better is that my friend Spencer “The King” Fisher is fighting in a bout that is being shown live  on Spike Tv.

There are also some great match-ups on the card as well.

I wanted to add a little more fun to the event by giving away my MMA QUICKSTART TRAINING PROGRAM to the person that can guess closest to the result of the main event fight between Anderson Silva and Yushin Okami.

Here’s all you have to do to submit your guess(es)

Pick the (winner/round/time left in round) (ie. Silva/3/2:12). Remember that it’s a 5 round fight. In the case of a decision result, no prize will be awarded so please don’t choose decision as the result.

You can submit up a guess in three different places (named below) s in the above format to increase your chances of winning.

At about 6:30 p.m last night, I blasted out a competition on facebook and twitter and in a short time close to 100 people had entered to win a free copy of my Beginner home training program “MMA QuickStart”. All they had to do to win was pick the winner/round/time left in the round, when either Rashad Evans or Tito Ortiz won the UFC 133 main event fight.

The competition was very close as many people picked Rashad to win the fight in the second round.

Two people picked the closest answer, exactly, so they both win a copy of my training program!

Shawn Gravelle Evans/2nd round/0:35 left

Andrew McCool  Evans….:35 round 2….TKO

Congrats Shawn and Andrew on winning, I’ll message you of facebook to set you up with MMA Quickstart.

Check back before the next UFC for another chance to win…

Time to go watch the smurfs with the kids!

UFC 126 is coming up. That means it’s time to give away some free MMA instructional stuff.

I’m very excited about the title match between Vitor Belfort & Anderson Silva. I really hope Belfort comes out of that fight as the new UFC middleweight champion of the world.  It comes down to the fact that I just don’t enjoy watching Silva fight as much anymore.

Anyway make your picks below (and please keep them in the same list order to make my job of calculating the winner much easier) and if you choose the most correct winners you win!

To make things more fun let’s do something special.

If Silva retains his belt, the pick’em winner will get any one of my MMA instructional workshops ($30 Value) and if Vitor Belfort is victorious then the pick’em winner will receive my complete MMA QuickStart MMA Training Program ($97 value).

Make your picks as comments on this post. Good luck!

Here’s a video with my thoughts on the main card fights:

UFC 125 Frankie Edgar vs. Gray Maynard

Wow! What a fight!

Even though it’s been several days since the UFC championship fight between Gray Maynard and Frankie Edgar, I find myself  thinking about it often. It has to be the amazing fact that Edgar came back from a brutal smashing in the first round –he was knocked down 3 times!–and was able to turn the fight around to the point that I thought he had done enough to win it.

In the first round he took a savage beating inside the octagon but after making a few small adjustments between rounds, Frankie began to get much less. As Maynard began to slow noticeably –probably due to the massive amount of energy he used in trying to finish Edgar throughout the 1st round–  as time went on, Frankie scored often with striking combinations. He also finished several explosive take downs including one that resembled a pro-wrestling power bomb. I’m pretty sure I was fist pumping the air after that one!

The main adjustment he made was a simple yet often underused striking concept. He started to move his head off the line of fire often –especially after throwing his own punching combos– causing Maynard to miss a huge percentage of his striking attacks. A good thing, because there’s no way that he would have been able to handle much any punishment from Maynard. Gray was hitting super hard that night and clearly would have finished Edgar early on, had he been able to continue to land his strikes cleanly.

Last night I filmed a video breaking down the way I  apply several of the techniques Frankie Edgar used so successfully to keep his head from being Gray’s punching bag, in rounds two, three, four and five.
