    Winners' Paths Clear After UFC 168

    Mon, 2013-12-30 11:46 — Benjamin Bieker

     While the top three fights at UFC 168 had major implications on their respective divisions, the turnaround for the winners seems to be short and sweet. Chris Weidman stopped Anderson Silva by checking a leg kick that broke his leg and the internet. Travis Browne became on of the only men to stop veteran Heavyweight fighter Josh Barnett and it only took one minute. Also, Ronda Rousey put down Miesha Tate for the second straight time with an armbar although it took a bit longer.

    Heart of a warrior

    Sorry, you need to install flash to see this content.

    It has been said that anyone can fight fresh, but a true warrior will stay calm at the helm during the worst of storms. That was the case on December 7th at the Filipino community center. Harvey Nakamoto vs Jon Barnard was Elite Cage fightings main event of a 15 fight card. Harvey shown above second from the left, had come down with a serious case of bronchitis and was pushing a 103 degree fever the day before the fight. Yet when asked by his coach and team to surrender the match and forfeit on the grounds of health, Harvey Nakamoto refused with a full heart and went ahead and faced his opponent. What followed was one of the greatest displays of heart courage and sheer will power. Harvey Nakamoto went in only one direction, forward. Forward into a barrage of punches and kicks, forward into a healthy strong opponent for fifteen minuets Harvey Nakamoto showed all in attendance the true meaning of martial arts, to press on with no regard for fear or danger, to press forward even if it means your death, to stand when you have no strength to stand, to fight until the last bell sounds. Harvey Nakamoto lost a unanimous decision that night but won the respect of the entire Hawaiian MMA community. I asked Harvey Nakamoto After the fight, why he went through with the fight knowing he had bronchitis and a high fever knowing he was risking more then a loss of record but a loss of life. He answered the only way a Team Nakamoto Warrior would "Because i couldn't let down all those who helped me prepare for this fight, i couldn't let down all my friends family and fans who came out to support because Nakamotos don't retreat, Nakamotos don't surrender."

    MMA Community Mourns the Passing of Joe Camacho

    Mon, 2013-12-16 19:04 — Benjamin Bieker

     In this life there are many things that you can be remembered for, but the thing that will always have people holding a special place in their heart for you is the quality of your character. This is could not be any more poignant than the sadness that anyone in the MMA community feels with the recent passing of Joe Camacho. The general public may scratch their head as to who Camacho, but for those engrossed in the sport of MMA and BJJ they knew him as one of the nicest guys in the sport. 

    Brian Ortega Awarded Black Belt Before RFA Title Fight

    Thu, 2013-12-12 19:17 — Benjamin Bieker

    When Brian "T-City" Ortega heads to the cage at RFA 12 to face Keoni Koch for the vacant RFA featherweight strap, he will already have earned a belt that means just as much as a world title in MMA. That would be his Black Belt in Gracie Jiu-Jitsu, which he received on Saturday from Rener Gracie and Ryron Gracie at the Gracie Jiu-Jitsu Academy in Torrance, California.
