    Connection Rio - July 13th, 2010 (Mad Jack The Hat)

    Tue, 2010-07-13 04:37 — mad jack the hat

    Hey humans, Sunday was quite an epic day, as we all decided to hike up Pedra de Gavea. It was Gordo's idea, so a bunch of people from the house and a few from the academy woke up early, ready to take on the rock. My alarm went of at 7:30 a.m.

    Hey people, thoght I'd start by saying bollox, it may seem strange to start a blog with that, but everyone in Brazil asks me: Hey Jack, what do you think of England in the World Cup and my reply has been bollox! Those guys get payed in a month more than I have earned in my whole 7 years of pro MMA and they played like bollox. I support Brazil now, but I really would like them out the World Cup also so things would go back normal, less horns, and silly wigs.

    Connection Rio - June 8th, 2010 (full house update)

    Tue, 2010-06-08 05:57 — mad jack the hat

    Well the house is full and really lively. The arrival of Gerbil (some of you may know him from his sherdog thread), Nial, Bridget, Kathy I AM TRULY SORRY ITS NOT KATHY ITS Christie (very sorry) , the New Zealand couple, and Pierce has given us a full house and looks to be a good one. With my other knee on the mend and me training around it, I'm getting closer to my 6 week training camp for my MMA fight at Jungle Fight. My Muay Thai classes have started generating some income with a few privates here and there.

    Connection Rio - May 14th, 2010 Update - No Distractions

    Fri, 2010-05-14 13:06 — mad jack the hat

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

    Just an update on a few things that are going on. Firstly (and I'm knocking on wood as I type), my knee is good and I'm back training on the squad. The departure of Mike and Dave has left our side of the house empty, so the latest arrival Anthony, has been given a bed. Also, kickboxer Danielle Ackerman from Holland is here to brush up on her tan and BJJ and Anthony is training hard and promises not to be a pussy. Already he has proved he's serious by landing at 10 and training at 12, straight off an 18 hour flight ...............good job.
