    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."

    UFC Fight for the Troops Predictions

    Thu, 2013-10-31 19:11 — Benjamin Bieker

     Tim Kennedy vs. Rafael Natal

    Kennedy has faced the better competition, but that does not make him the better fighter in this fight. Natal has lost twice in his UFC career, but event he fight against Andrew Craig was a loss due to slip up as he was single handily winning that fight before the head kick. The real question mark is Natal's cardio, because he has never gone past the first three rounds while Kennedy has had some five round fights. Look for Natal to break through into the top ten with this win in a unanimous decision.
