BrinkZone Sponsors Local MMA Event

As mentioned in a prior blog, I was a (minor) sponsor of an MMA event. The name of the event was “stand Up and Fight” and was held Feb 19th in Tyngsboro MA.  There was some great ‘ground and pound.’  I was really impressed with how professional the athletes were and the level of sportsmanship they showed; as good as it gets. I have been to a ton of bodybuilding shows, power-lifting meets, etc as both judge and or attendee,   the behavior was less then professional by some and that’s a real turn off. Trophies smashed, people storming off stage, and general hissy fits. These guys, after beating the snot out of each other, to a man, showed sportsmanship and professionalism that really impressed me.

    Not so much “fun” for the losers of a match, but anyone willing to step into a cage and fight, gets my respect, that’s for sure.

    This looks like the last time I went in to argue my medical bills (without the wonderful ladies of course).

    Yeah, good stuff. I serve as a cageside physician here in Oregon and had the privilege of doing the same for UFC 102. For the most part, the fighters are cordial and respectful to each other. As a national NPC bodybuilding competitor, i must say that i have never seen disrespect or hissy fits at any of the shows in which I’ve competed, though I know it happens. I hope you get to enjoy future MMA contests; they’re pretty fun.

    That’s awesone Will, you ought to do anotherl. MMA practitioners are the highest overall conditioned athletes period. I’ve “rolled” a bit in Jiu- Jitsu, and is the hardest workout I’ve ever done, and I’ve worked out all my life. Grappling is a whole other level… I love that sport
