I hope everyone had a Happy New Year. Time to get back to training. My two gyms opened up for 2014 on Monday 6th January with the full timetable. It was great to be back and see so many students on day one.
Here is the video.
I lost my match by decision at UFC Fight Night 33 in Brisbane. Congratulations to my opponent Ryan Bader. He was my toughest opponent to date and he proved it on the night. It is now time for me to heal up, rest and then go back to training. Back to the drawing board as they say.I just have a few stitches and bruising so it will be all healed up in 10 days.
I want to thank God. I want to thank my sponsors Balance Sports Nutrition and Venum. I want to thank my coaches and cornermen Steve Rudic and Luke Martin. And thanks to Paul Dallow for being my third corneman and organising my banner and shorts and walk out gear. A big thanks to my students, family and friends for their undying support.
Later in the week I will post some photos of fight week and of the event.
I am fighting Ryan Bader in Brisbane, Australia at UFC Fight Night 33 on 7th December. Ryan is a tough fighter and has been a top 10 fighter in the UFC for years. You can get your tickets through Ticketek. My goal is to keep the momentum rolling! Here is a video of my last fight in Brazil at UFC 163 on 3rd August.
