EX UFC Middleweight Champ Evan Tanner Dies at age 37

Posted by arielramon on September 9, 2008

Former Champ Evan Tanner was found dead on Monday near Palo Verde, Calif. He was on a journey to the desert to clear his mind and seek solitude for a while. Apparently he left on Sept 2 and told his friends that if they didnt hear from him in a while to contact authorities. It was as if he already knew something was going to happen. i just found out about this last night and it tore me up. He was a great fighter and person. He was a little weird though in that he seemed like he was into mysticism and worshiping nature. Im not sure if that’s how he really was but he just seemed like that type of person. I know Evan has a lot of family and friends that love him and my heart and prayers go out to them. This is a tragic event for the world of MMA and for sports in general. If you want to read more detail of the events leading up to his death you can find it at MMAweekly.com

What went wrong: Evans vs. Liddell

Posted by arielramon on September 8, 2008

Over 24hrs since the shocking knock out of one of MMA’s Legends, Chuck Liddell, i have gone over the past few fights that Liddell has fought in. In all but one fight, which was against  Wanderlei Silva, Chuck has repeatedly used the same tactics that brought him to where he is today and helped him win the Light Heavy weight title in 2005 against Randy Couture. The problem with he strategy now is that more fighters are learning how to avoid his knock out punches and becoming more diverse in their tactics. I would not say that Chuck needs to get out of the UFC, but he does need to rethink his fight strategy. Rushing forward and hoping for an opening to land a fight ending punch can’t remain as his sole strategy. In his fight against Silva he used the full extent of his skills and came out victorious. Liddell has been a kick-boxer and wrestler for the longest time. If he would utilize and improve on the skills he already has as a kick-boxer and wrestler he would be a force to be reckoned with. The loss to Evans should have never happened with the amount of skill and experience he has. How many times does he need to get his block knocked off to change up the way he fights? Use those skills you have Chuck and Kick ass like you used to. Your fans and I are not gonna give up on you bud! Your a great fighter and an even better person. I believe you can be champ again along with thousands of others. So, lets get to it bro! I wanna say that all you Liddell Fans need to stand up behind Chuck and give him tons of support. Shoot him an email or comment on his myspace. Let him know we still love em!

UFC 88: Rashad Sugar Evans Beats Chuck Liddell

Posted by arielramon on September 7, 2008

What an upset! I cant believe that “sugar” Rashad actually beat Chuck! This was such a quick fight, barely making it into the second round. Sugar ended the fight with a hard right that sent Chuck flat on his back. I did not expect a knock out from Rashad. I know already that there will be a second fight between these two within the next 6 months or so. Chuck Suffered a ham string injury prior to the fight and im sure that it had a part in his loss tonight. I almost missed this fight because i dont get pay per view unless i buy it online which is a huge risk since im in a hotel and connection speed is sometimes sub par. It started out choppy but got better right when the knock out punch was thrown. Im looking forward to UFC 91 and Elite XC’s fight between Kimbo and  shamrock. IF you havent heard Randy The NAtural Couture and brock lesner are to fight in UFC 91. I hope i dont have to work that night. Anyways, im out of here so have a good night everyone

Going Home soon/ Combat Freak Store

Posted by arielramon on September 3, 2008

Wow it is almost time for me to go back home to Biloxi, MS. I have been up here in Alexandria, VA for about 8 months now. Its hard to believe that time has gone by so fast. I don’t want to go home. Even though i don’t want to leave Alexandria i know that it is my time to leave. As you all know i started a website called CombatFreak.com. it is a MMA focused website which i hope will grow over the years. as of now I’ve only had like 100 visitors in the month that its been up. When i get home i plan to get to work on promoting the site and my business. I’m going to talk to the SBA when i get home to look into getting a loan so i can get a better, more professional logo made along with other stuff and i would like enough money to open a store. I was looking around the mall yesterday and noticed that not many stores sold MMA clothing and stuff like that. i think i could have a niche if i opened one up. I could sell MMA gear and clothing for men,women,kids, and even though it sounds crazy i thought about selling cute MMA shirts for dogs……i figure someone would buy that for their pit-bull or Chihuahua. So i hope that you all check out my site and give me some feedback. Also feel free to click on the REVGEAR banner to the right. you can get some really great deals from the site. i think they are giving out a free shirt for every 25 dollar purchase. Anyways, i would like to also say that if your an MMA fan and have some spare change hanging around i would really appreciate it if you could donate for the cause. The more donations i get the better deals you will get from my store because i wont have to get as big of a loan out. That way i could afford to lower the price on things. I mean what would y’all think about SPRAWL fight shorts for like 20 or 30 bucks?

Chuck Liddell in his own words

Posted by arielramon on August 31, 2008

Yesterday i was walking around Barnes and Noble to find a book on SEO and i decided to go to the MMA section to check out what kind of books they had. Of course, they had your “Bruce Lee” stories and “how-to” books. I came across three books that i was interested in. They were all autobiographies on Tito Ortiz, Chuck Liddell, and Randy Couture. My instinct was to grab the Chuck Liddell book because he is a mystery to me. All, i ever saw from him was a cold stare and a quick match usually ending up with him knocking some guy out. So i was interested in reading about this guys life and how he grew up. I sat in a chair for like 4 hours and read most of his book. So far it is really good and has a lot of life lessons in it. I wont ruin it for you all who have not read it but i encourage you to read his book. I’ll be getting those other two books on Tito and Randy later on in the future. Also, just one qucik side note. i hope that everyone on the gulf coast is sitting some place safe reading my blog. im from Biloxi, MS so i know what hurricanes can do. i mean look at what happened with Katrina. this storm looks alot like it. Please evacuate even if there never is a mandatory evacuation.

KIMBO AND SHAMROCK? What gives?

Posted by arielramon on August 29, 2008

Ok for those that dont keep up MMA news apparantly Kimbo Slice will be fighting Ken Shamrock on October 4th. I cant believe that this is happening! what do they think is going to happen between these two fighters. you have Kimbo that is a brawler with some ju jitsu and a MMA Legend that has been out of his prime since he left Pride and went into the pro wrestling arena. I see this fight going to Kimbo in the second round with an ugly knock out. Kimbo is much more powerful than ken and a lot younger at that. So yeah i guess i know where i will be on october 4th. Watching that fight to see if my second round knock out prediction comes true or not. lol. By the way just an update for my site. i got a window vinyl to put on my rearview window. i hope this will help with my advertising. If anyone is good at SEO hit me up and give me some pointers ok.

GET THAT MONEY!

Posted by arielramon on August 21, 2008

So im still trying to get my business off the ground. I have my ideas and plans set up now it is a matter of having money to start this thing off. I want to use as little credit as possible because the worst way to start out a business is starting off with large debts. i want to see how much i can save by doing small fund raisers and asking for donations and maybe look for a sponsor or two. I have been away from what fundraising is all about for years now so im a little out of touch with the new ones. last i remember was selling candy bars and discount cards.If anyone knows of a good way to raise money with little expense on my part let me know!

That First Step…

Posted by arielramon on August 19, 2008

How many of you have started a small business on your own? Better yet how many have tried to while being in between jobs and made your business a success? Im stuck making that initial plunge into making a business for my self. I am scared that i wont do well and will lose all my investment. I suppose thats the risk I have to take to make my dreams a reality. This is one of the biggest decisions i have ever made because i could alter what i do over the next 5 years or more. So in this blog i am not going to write much because i want to hear from my readers. I want to hear everyones thoughts on what i am trying to do and i especially want to hear from those people that were in my situation and have made it. Help me get the courage to take that leap of faith.
