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.comĀ

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?

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.

Im on my way now! FIGHT ON!

GOTTA STAY STRONG!

GOTTA STAY STRONG!

So yesterday I wrote about the business I wanted to start within the next few months. So far things are going pretty well. I did a little research about other websites like the one im going to be making and according to the stats these sites make well over 100k a year in profit. Thats crazy, I never knew MMA was THAT BIG! So of course that made me pretty happy to see that. I still think i will have a better site though because it will focus on some of the local fighters as well as some stuff for more known fighters. The young guys need exposure too. As I was looking through townhouse listings in FL I received an email from MMAWarehouse.com. I wrote them the other day asking about maybe doing an affiliate program type thing with them. So the email was the guy from that site saying once my site was up and everything to give him a shout! THAT IS GREAT!!!!! They are a pretty large company for MMA gear so if I can attach my self to their stock and name im good to go. Of Course, i will be doing other things besides selling equipment and clothes for money. you have to do advertising stuff for other stores and such. Needless to say I was really encouraged by that email. Oh by the way I wanna thank my boy universitymindlab for leaving that comment on my last post. Id like to follow up with you on what you said. I wanna hear your story dude! I look forward to hearing from ya’ll.
