March 8, 2009
I am a 31 year old, married father of one. I've followed Mixed Martial Arts since the very first UFC in November of 1993. I trained Mixed Martial Arts for over four years. I've trained in all aspects. Boxing, muay thai, Brazilian jiu jitsu, and wrestling. I started off training at local gyms in Illinois. Then on to a Miletich camp in Missouri. In early 2008 I joined the HIT SQUAD in Granite City, IL. Which is run by Matt Hughes, and Robbie Lawler. In February of 09 I decided to take the summer off of training to spend with my wife and 3 year old son. I will be returning to the HIT SQUAD in November of 2009 to focus on lining up some fights throughout 2010.
Very good job reporting the tragic death of "Mask." I gave you 5 stars and POTD.
I would love it if you checked out my latest article, I hope that it gives us all the much needed inspiration.

If you live where you get HOI news, Cody is supposed to be on Sports tonight for Wrestling.
My biggest shame is that I was an English teacher and MS has eaten away all the knowledge I used to have about spelling and grammar. When I write it is terribly frustrating after years of being my family's resource for information and now I have to beg them to spell simple words for me or find my ever vanishing dictionary for me. It has been quite a fall from grace to end up in this position and I don't know how much longer I have to be able to function. I do enjoy helping others where I can, but my big piece of advice is always to write on something you feel very passionate about. Find the right subject and the rest is a piece of cake!
Hi Ryan, I want to thank you for becoming my fan before you discover my feelings about Matt Hughes. Are you a friend of Jimmy Garner's? I wrote an article o him a long time ago. We keep in touch on Facebook. I hope you will like it here on B/R, it is always good to have another committed MMA fan come on board. Grandma Dee
