So last night we went to Hooters to watch UFC 64. Rich Franklin fought Anderson Silva and WOW! It was amazing. This was Anderson "The Spider" Silva's SECOND UFC fight, and now he's the middleweight title holder. It was unreal. The entire restaurant was rooting for Rich Franklin, since he's from Cincinnati and he's an awesome fighter, so you can imagine the reaction when Silva TKO'd Franklin barely into the first round.
Meanwhile there was a guy sitting at the next table who was wearing an MMA t-shirt and whose girlfriend was wearing a "I love fighters" shirt, and J ended up talking to him about the gym he trains at and so forth. J has been wanting to find a gym to get in shape at, because really he needs a trainer to give him the motivation and means. He was so good at going to the gym by himself and finding his own program on the internet and so forth, but then he just lost motivation, going to the local PD gym all by himself every other day. There's something to be said about going to a gym with other people. Plus he has been so interested in the MMA stuff that he wants to train in that also. A lot of cops get trained in ground fighting techniques, and it would probably be REALLY beneficial to J to be better trained in fighting. He does hold a black belt in Tae Kwon Do, but it's been a long time since he practiced that. Plus he loves the whole 'sport', so there you go!
