I found some old highlight footage of my final hard sparring session before UFC fight night 7.

Definitely brings back a lot of memories!

Makes me miss training with my long-time striking coach Vito Brancaccio. The guy is a striking wizard!

We always have our fighters finish their training camps up with 5×5 minute rounds of sparring with a fresh partner rotating in every 2.5 minutes. It’s brutal when you’re the man in the middle! Big thanks to my friends “40 Sons”for their pumped up music track “Hurricane”!

Just sitting around our hotel room after having some breakfast in the hotel restaurant.

I had a couple of eggs cooked over easy and I must say…the restaurants here in Calgary are pretty kick ass.

Ryan Dickson ended up winning his fight last night -at Hard Knocks MMA- by armlock in the 2nd round. It was a very tough fight as he opponent had some great movement and striking skills.

The win takes Ryan to 7-2 as a pro and 13-2 overall with all his victories by finish. It feels like yesterday when we were at his first amateur fight; Amazing how fast times flies by!

It’s about time for us to head to the airport for our flight home. I’m looking forward to seeing my wife and kids.

I’m going to start posting daily on here, sharing with you more of whats going on with my training, the gym and our athletes.

Later!

Hard Knocks MMA Fighting Championships

Hard Knocks MMA Fighting Championships

I’m sitting here in out hotel room in Calgary, Alberta at the end of a busy day. Our pro MMA fighter Ryan Dickson made weight tonight for the Hard Knocks MMA event which takes place tomorrow night at a local casino. It’s going to be an awesome event!

Ryan is in the main event fight and is very excited to get in there and do his thing. Our friend Dr. Callum Cowan came with us for the trip and has been a huge help this weekend and over the two years that he has been working with Ryan as well.

Dr. Callum is a specialist in High Performance Sports Medicine and has a wealth of knowledge when it comes to helping athletes perform and train at their best. He has helped Ryan train at a peak level during training camp and has assisted him in easily making weight for every one of his fights. With Ryan soon making the drop to the 155lbs division Dr. Callum will definitely play a major part in helping him get there.

Eric Wong and I are looking forward to interviewing Dr. Callum on our “MMA Training Show” podcast very soon. I know that he’s got some very helpful stuff to share with us and all of our listeners.

Check out this video where Dr. Callum describes one very effective method of weight cutting for MMA: The Epsom Salt Bath:

Also be sure to check out Dr. Callum’s website at www.phenomHPM.com

fnI recently had the chance to appear on the Fight Network alongside Robin Black and John Ramdeen. We broke down the upcoming UFC 165 Card (Toronto) and had a fun time doing it :). Here’s the vid:

A night of the big guys fighting it out inside the Octagon ended up with a bunch of nice KO’s being scored.

We also have 3 winners in the UFC 160 Pick’em contest. All three of them -Rob Barharm, John Volpe and  Mark Anthony Filipovic– all picked Cain to win with 4 minutes left on the clock in the first round. That was 21 seconds off of the actual time he won, so to deal with the three way tie I’ve decided to give all three people the MMA QuickStart Program!

Congrats guys!

They all win the entire MMA QuickStart online training package which includes:

  • 18 1-hour workouts
  • 100+ instructional videos
  • 12 Follow Along MP3 “Shadowfighting” Audio Files
  • 50+ page training manual

UFC 146, a card filled with more bodyweight than any other UFC event in history should be a good one.

The main event fight between Junior Dos Santos and Frank Mir is one that has me very interested to see how it plays out.

I’m kind of leaning towards Mir in this one, although it’s more of a gut feeling type prediction. Regardless of the result I hope it’s an exciting tilt from start to finish.

If either fighter wins the fight via finish (no decision) there’s a chance for you to win a prize that will help you master the basics of MMA.

I`ll be giving away my MMA QUICKSTART TRAINING PROGRAM to the person that can guess closest to the result of the main event fight between Mir and Dos Santos.

Here’s all you have to do to submit your guess(es)

Pick the (winner/round/time left in round) (ie. Dos Santos/4/2:12). Remember that it’s a 5 round fight. In the case of a decision result, no prize will be awarded so please don’t choose decision as the result.

You can submit up a guess in three different places (named below) s in the above format to increase your chances of winning.

UFC 142 was a great card. The Brazilian crowd was wild and full of energy and the fighters fought hard in pretty much every fight.

We even got to see an awesome highlight reel Ko when Barbosa spin kicked the crap out of Terry Etim. Ouch!

The main event didn’t last as long as many people had though it would, ending with only 1 second left in the very first round;  Aldo scoring the knockout via vicious knee strike.

I was really impressed with Jose Aldo’s takedown defense and reactive counter attacks. He was very fun to watch. I think if someone is going to beat him they’ve got to have fast hard hitting hands and need to get their attacks off first. As long as Aldo has the advantage in striking over his opponent he is going to be very hard to takedown regardless of the calibre of wrestler he’s up against.

As far as the MMA QUICKSTART contest goes: Congrats to Jeff Morris on making the winning prediction:

 

Aldo/KO/Round 1 – 1:15

I was following the UFC 140 fight results on my phone on Saturday might from my wife’s work related Christmas Party. It sounded as though the fights were really exciting and that there were a few highlight reel moments that took place. I can’t wait to watch the fights!

Reading that Machida may have won the first round of the main event fight between him and John Jones had me wondering if he might actually pull of a win. About thirty minutes after that I read that Jones has won the fight via choke with 34 seconds left in the 2nd round. I had thought that Jones would win but was excited to see that Machida made it a pretty good scrap.

After blasting out some info about a pick’em contest, the responses came in quickly. The closest one was actually closer to the actual time of victory than any other JJ MMA pick’em contest guess has ever been. It was only 4 seconds off!

Congrats to Johnny Sanguinetti on making the winning prediction:

Jones/2/0:40

Johnny wins the entire MMA QuickStart Training Program which includes over 18 1-hour workouts, 100+ instructional videos, 12 Follow Along MP3 “Shadowfighting” Audio Files and more.

The UFC 139 Pick'em Winner is…

Posted by: | Comments (0)

Man, that was a great main event fight between Henderson and Rua! Big shots, takedowns, escapes, submission attempts, displays of heart and toughness: It definitely had all the ingredients that a fight needs to be historic.

But…that wasn”t the fight everyone had placed their predictions on for the “MMA QuickStart” UFC 139 Pick”em via twitter, facebook and my blog page. I”m glad it wasn”t because no one would have won the prize because of the fight ending in decision.

The winner, who was off by only 1 min games for phones and 34 seconds from the actual time the fight ended, made his pick for the Cung Le vs. Wanderlei Silva bout via twitter:

—> michaelmurrihy: @JeffJoslin Silva/2/1:45 left.

UFC 139 goes down this Saturday!

I’d like to run another pick’em contest for it but this time not for the main event fight. Instead the contest will focus on the bout between Cung Le and Wanderlei Silva.

The reason?

Because the last contest I setup –for the bout between BJ Penn and Nick Diaz– ended up without a winner because the fight went to a decision.

I really want someone to win this time and I just don’t see the Le/Silva fight going the distance.

Once again, I`ll be giving away my MMA QUICKSTART TRAINING PROGRAM to the person that can guess closest to the result of the main event fight between Cung Le and Wanderlei Silva.

Here’s all you have to do to submit your guess(es)

Pick the (winner/round/time left in round) (ie. Silva/2/2:12). Remember that it’s a 3 round fight. In the case of a decision result, no prize will be awarded so please don’t choose decision as the result.

You can submit up a guess in three different places (named below) s in the above format to increase your chances of winning.
