It's one thing for me to throw around I know what it's like to cut weight because I've sort of done it with Phil (my fiance). But in walks Kerry Vera who actually knows better than anyone what it means to be a fighter, plus some. Not only does she do the usual "fighter's-wife" duties being the wife of Brandon Vera, but being a fighter herself the understanding and appreciation runs deep. They take turns taking care of each other and house duties when the other is fighting. The little things that could taken for granted in other households; such... Continue reading

When talking to Jon Jones it's hard to believe he's only 22 years old. And I'm not just saying that because of his success in the octagon, nor because of his poise during our call. But his admiration for his family and his views on life make you think he's lived a full life already. He met his fiance Jessie in high school. He was a Senior and she was a Junior. It was Science class where he first spotted her beauty. It wasn't until she dropped her pencil and he raced to get it that finally connected. Fast forward... Continue reading

If given the opportunity to talk to Ben Henderson, what would you ask? I'm guessing the route I picked is different than what you've read else where. I wanted to let the dust settle a bit from his recent media 'tour' and catch him after he had had a chance to rest up a bit. Yeah, come to find out that doesn't really happen with Ben. When he should be enjoying his new title of WEC Lightweight Champion and basking in the sun and eating bon-bons, he's relieving his mother from her job and working in her convenience store up...

For those that have followed me over at MMAHotStuff, know that I've been a Matt Serra fan from day one. There's something about his "New Yorker" personality that I find intriguing and hilarious. And feeling this way has given me a reason to "like" him. In my opinion, I think the Ultimate Fighter has been a great way for people to see a little more personality from fighters than you see in the octagon. I know I know, some of you are going to say oh that's just a reality show and they edit it to look a certain way.... Continue reading
