Well, last week I talked about how I was flying home to be there for my guys at Untamed. It ended up being a great move and I think it was a nice surprise. With the exception of Gorilla Bob, I don’t think anyone had any idea I was coming home. We even had to guilt-trip my brother into showing up the day before the fight so I could see him as soon as I got home. He had no idea.
We ended up going 4-4 for the night. When you have eight guys fighting, half the guys winning isn’t so bad. I think next time out we will do better, but all of our guys had great fights and, win or lose, should be proud of how they did. As I told my guys, you can’t win them all.
In order to put it all into perspective, I found my very first amateur MMA fight from about six years ago and put it on my YouTube channel. I won’t give away the end, so you can watch it, but it shows that no matter how bad you start out there is always an opportunity to do well down the line.
Dan and I flew to Denver on Sunday night and the flight was luckily pretty uneventful. There was a little bit of turbulence and the flight got in a little late because of snow, but overall it wasn’t too bad. I think Dan watched Juno twice on the flight and was ready to kill himself by the time we landed. JetBlue is usually the way to fly, but the TV stations weren’t working
