    Boxing in Favela Rocinha, Hard Rolling at Nova Uniao----Living the Dream

    Tue, 2013-08-27 09:25 — thheffelfinger

     The cool “winter” weather of Rio is gone and the sun has been out all week without a cloud in the sky. In our down time here at CR everyone has been out working on their tan at the beach or poolside here at the house. The warm weather at night has been perfect for grilling food out on the barbeque and enjoying a meal under the stars. Just because it was beautiful out doesn't mean we didn't spend plenty of time in the gym.

    Brazilian Jiu Jitsu Black Looks to become Light weight Number One Contender

    Tue, 2013-08-27 09:15 — Benjamin Bieker

     Rafael dos Anjos is a BJJ black belt, but more recently has been known as a contender in the lightweight division of the UFC. His name had not always been thrown around like that, because after losing his first two fights in the Octagon some people doubted his ability. Now, he sits at a streak of 8-2 with his only losses being questionable. He was beating Clay Guida until a broken jaw forced him out of the fight, and then a split decision loss to Gleison Tibau was viewed by many as the wrong decision.

    Lyoto Machida Moves to Middleweight

    Thu, 2013-08-22 19:51 — Benjamin Bieker

     Former UFC light-heavyweight champion Lyoto Machida has decided to move down to 185. At the age of 35, the Brazilian born fighter has had mixed results in the last few years. Since 2010, he has gone 3-4 after starting his career at a perfect 16-0. Two of those loss came in title fights where he was knocked out by Mauricio Rua and choked unconscious by Jon Jones. He looked to be back on his way to another title shot after wins over Ryan Bader and Dan Henderson, but a split decision loss to Phil Davis left him back at the drawing board.

    Making Adjustments to Make Improvements

    Wed, 2013-08-21 05:24 — thheffelfinger

     This past week we hit the eight month mark in Brazil! It really doesn't feel like we have been here for nearly a year, but looking back at the amazing experiences I've had so far are almost too many to count. After getting settled in after the move last week, I was able to catch up on my rest and my training.

    Vitor Belfort Finally gets Opponent

    Tue, 2013-08-20 22:40 — Benjamin Bieker

     Vitor Belfort has called out and turned down every fighter from Chael Sonnen to Tim Kennedy. He has also stated that he prefers a fight at light-heavyweight while he waits for the outcome of the upcoming title shot rematch between Chris Weidman and Anderson Silva. Now, he may have a chance to do that, because the UFC has offered him a headlining slot opposite Dan Henderson for a bout in November. The fight would take place in Brazil at a yet to be determined arena, and would serve as Ultimate Fight Night 31.
