McGregor -vs- Mayweather Fight Party

September 19, 2017

We had a blast hosting a party with our gym peeps for the McGregor -vs- Mayweather fight in August. We won’t talk about the actual fight though. I was for neither, but all I’m sayin’ is that McGregor should have just got ‘im in a rear naked choke and put in work!! Bobby and Cheryl made 80 Jello shots and we took several! This round of shots was dedicated to Mandrill’s master chef (who loves to pump iron) and his new fiancée!!

Poolside RnR

•~•~• RnR •~•~•

It was really nice to spend three days by the pool this weekend. I got my fill of sun for sure. It was super relaxing. On Friday afternoon, members of the Jackson-Winkeljohn camp were at the pool when we were. It was interesting! They were staying in a penthouse right across the pool from us. They left the pool, then I watched them all leave to go train… bags and jugs of water in hand.

I assumed they were around to pay a visit to King of the Cage, but I didnt see any of them there that night!?! They were at the pool though. That included Albuquerque’s own… Holly Holm in her tiny bikini and Alistair Overeem, the one MMA fighter to hold three championship belts simultaneously. The “Blackzilian” is a 6 ft 4 in, heavyweight, Dutch man who fights out of Amsterdam.

Choked Out and a TKO

June 12, 2016

We had such a blast in Albuquerque this weekend! We just got home and I’m super, super tired! On Friday night, we took our first Uber ride to the Embassy Suites to watch our local MMA fighters rip shit up! I laughed when my nephew snapped a pic of our Uber driver to his chatters. He seemed very confused. It was definitely a fun night and we were surprised to see a few Santa Fe gym rats there.

We got to see my friend Marlene’s son easily choke out his opponent Kyle Sparks during his King of the Cage “Ascension” bout. Ernesto “LockNess” Salvidrez won within 50 seconds of round 1 by submission with a rear naked choke. Our former trainer’s son, Jesse “The Vanilla Gorilla” Martinez smashed Fernando Sanchez by TKO within 33 seconds of the first round.

These two represented Santa Fe to the fullest! We also got to see Diego Sanchez and Jon Jones there! Here are some awesome pics from that night.

Custom Shred for LockNess’s Ma

**2nd Row Tix! Yeah!!**

My friend Marlene is prepping for her son’s fight this Friday night. She asked me to throw a custom shred on the black tee shirt she’ll wear for his fight. I hope he kicks ass!! I’ve done a few shreds for different peeps over the years and many, many for myself. I think this one will look good with a white tank underneath.

We are going to see King of the Cage on Friday too. I found out that Fred’s son is fighting and Fred trained us way back in the day. Now he owns his own gym in Santa Fe. I’ve heard both Ness and Jess are good fighters. It should be a fun night and we are staying up there to hit the gym in Albuquerque on Saturday.

Deadz, Hike, Fight

It’s a little over half past midnight. Just got home from a fight party at my brother’s house. This day literally took it out of me. I deadlifted and hit back super hard. The gym was packed wall to wall. Nervous system tapped, I dared to go on my first hike of 2016, then sadly watched Holly Holm get choked out in UFC196. I didn’t think she’d be a short lived champ. Damn you Tate!!

*Oh No*

It’s time for bed! I’m super drained now. I easily rep’ed a plate on deadz today for a strong 12. That was a great part of my day. My grip strength is going up. The hike was awesome. What a beautiful day to be outside. I love that summer is almost here. That climb was tiring, but it felt really good. The best part of the day was seeing McGregor, the shit talker, covered in Diaz’s blood when he tapped out. Good times!

*Oh Yes*

UFC Trap Queen

November 20, 2015

Gotta love how my fellow New Mexican kneeled with true injury etiquette when she knocked out Rousey last weekend. She’s the UFC Trap Queen. Her traps are lookin’ straight fire! She developed those impressive homegrownz in a year. Looks like heavy barbell and incline dumbbell shrugs +facepulls to me. The trap… still my all time favorite, sexy muscle. Hit those shrugs boys!!

Holly Holm: A Burqueñia Who Knows How to Get It

November 16, 2015

The established champ went down like a little rag doll (I felt kinda sorry for her) during UFC 193 and crowds all over the world went wild!

image

~Photo of the cover of one of my local newspapers the day of the fight.~

Holly Holm was focused with the intent of taking the women’s Bantamweight title from Ronda Rousey last night. I’ve been a Rousey fan since way back (see all my posts), but I was for the underdog from my home state this time. I had a feeling about the New Mexico native since I saw how much muscle she put on for this fight (check out her thread on my site to see why).

In March of 2014, Holm made the “ABQ’s Fittest People” list in Albuquerque the Magazine. I remember being rather disappointed when I saw her physique in that issue. But after seeing her in interview footage about a month and a half ago, it became clear to me that she was intent on taking that belt. She had really put on muscle!

I’ve been following Holly for a few years now, and have posted about her a good handful of times. I felt so inspired by her in 2012 when I posted video footage of Holly’s training program, which includes her running in the Sandia Mountains. I could feel her heart and drive through that footage. I felt so proud of her last night and got teary eyed when she took that win.

All of Holly’s training paid off. Take that… to all the haters and doubters who saw no chance for her. Her secret weapons in that fight were not only her deadly fists, but her monstrous quads! Much of her super power came from those stems. That woman put in WORK since I saw her spread in Albuquerque Magazine in the first quarter of 2014. It so paid off.

`Watching the fight! Living Room on fyYah!~

We had a big fight party last night. The party was complete with gloves by the TV, beer, good food, and the candles and fire ablaze. Our living room was seriously on straight fire with ravenous cheering as we watched the beat down of a champ in amazement. I don’t think I’ve ever stomped my feet so hard in my life!! Every single second of that fight was awesome.

Holly Holm broke the mold by setting a new standard for women and men in the UFC, champions, and for everyone else. She made international history last night. Most importantly, Holly Holm made New Mexico history. This notable New Mexican made the fight to become champ seem effortless.

(P.S. Now go hit those legs if you want to be as tough as a soon to be 35 year old Burqueña with killer quads! Rousey is 28.)

(P.P.S. Holly’s shoulders, abs, and biceps looked hella tight too. Really doe.)

(P.P.P.S. What did I hit today? LEGS!)

Venom: A Much Improved Team

May 19, 2015

My son’s team played in the flag football championship on Monday night. The little men from the “Venom Family” played hard against the team with the best reputation and likely the largest trophy collection. I was so proud of his team! They really tried.

The last time they played the Jaguars, the score was 46 and 0. It was a horrible loss. In the championship game, D’z team took second with a score of 13 to 6. They improved significantly. Maybe we will take 1st next year?! Tackle starts in July, but my son is only in for the flag season.

Santa Fe Venom Hits the Field

March 28, 2015

Today we went to the opening ceremony of the Northern New Mexico Children’s Football League. Freddie Martinez was the Master of Ceremony and did an awesome job on the mic (video below). He introduced all the teams including the Santa Fe Venom “family.” Freddie is also a Venom coach and his daughter is a little football rockstar.

I was glad that Daryn’s coach… Mario, kept my son in mind this year. His coach is dedicated to his team. I gotta thank these men for taking time out of their schedules to work with the kids. We are all looking forward to a new flag football season! We also love the new team name! Gotta love snakes. Hopefully, these kids have a venomous bite this season!!

Coyotes Take 3rd

March 8, 2015

image

Today the Coyotes took 3rd place in the championships of the Santa Fe Independent Youth Basketball Program. These little men worked hard and the game they played last week against the team that took first today was a really close game. The Coyotes almost had the chance to play for 1st and 2nd today.

Each team member received a tee shirt, a medal and a trophy with their name and number on it. They were very excited about that. After the championships, all of us gathered in the park where the kids insisted on playing more basketball! It was a really good season. They didn’t do too bad…taking 3rd out of nine teams.

Thank you to Coach Joe for all his work with and dedication to these young men!! Also…thank you to all the supportive parents and family members out there. Next year we are taking 1st ;)!!
