    Anderson Silva Muay Thai College Opens

    Mon, 2013-02-25 21:39 — Benjamin Bieker

     You have to be tough to open any place of business off of Crenshaw in Torrance, but then again not many people are Anderson Silva. That is because Anderson Silva has opened up a muay Thai College in Torrance, California, and by the looks of it the gym will offer a lot more than Muay Thai. With an Octagon, bags, gym equipment, and some area for mats the gym will most likely offer more than just Muay Thai. It is not known how much the GOAT of MMA will training there, but rumor has it they he may be doing some of his training for upcoming fights at the gym.

    Wrestling dropped from Olympic Games

    Tue, 2013-02-12 14:24 — Benjamin Bieker

     While it is seven years away a lot of people are up in arms over the governing body of the Olympics excluding wrestling from the 2020 Olympics Games. Wrestling will still be included in the 2016 event which is set to take place in Brazil. There is still a possibility that the event could be added in a vote to make the games have 26 events, but according to sources it looks very grim. This leaves a lot of changes for the world of MMA and BJJ by extension.
