A New Addiction Has Emerged in The Philippines


I first tried it in the 90’s, when my cousins told me they were doing it and it was the “cool” thing to do.  Like most teens I tried it because I wanted to impress my older cousins and I wanted to be “part of the group”.  I didn’t think much of it at the time, it was really no big deal. Looking back at it now, 16 years later, I realize that first session with my cousins was the start of a lifelong addiction.

Since then I would do it in spurts. Never really went out of my way to find it but when I did come across people who do it, it was that much easier for me to join in. I tried it again with some people I met in University but that didn’t last very long, maybe a couple of months.  When I started working I came across some people that were really heavy into it, these guys were seriously addicted. Although I joined some of their sessions, I didn’t allow myself to get hooked.  I had a lot of other priorities at that time and I didn’t want to lose my focus.

This year, 2015, at 36 years of age I’d have to admit that I’m a full-blown addict.   It consumes my thoughts day and night.  It affects every aspect of my life now. My work my personal life, the way I deal with problems the way I interact with people.  Everything.   I find myself sneaking out at night, sometimes 6 days a week to join a session. I’d be gone for hours. 



It’s sounds bad, I know, but jiu-jitsu has really made a positive impact in my life.  I always encourage my friends and family to try this art.  People from all walks of life practice Jiu-jitsu.  I haven’t met anyone that’s regretted putting on that BJJ Gi! 

An estimated 2,000 people attended the event over the course of two days.  The organizers awarded a bronze, sliver and gold medal winner for each division.  Not all participants received a medal however as the great Rickson Gracie once said, “Sometimes you don’t have to win. You cannot win. But that has nothing to do with losing.”


The Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu scene in the Philippines is definitely thriving.  Don’t be the only one left standing, find the nearest gym near you and sign up to Slap, Bump & Roll!

This past weekend at Commercenter in Alabang it became apparent that I’m not alone in my addiction.  Filipino men and women across the country attended ArteSuave Manila to test their skills against other BJJ practitioners.  Those that didn’t compete came to watch  and support their teammates. 


It was amazing to see the diversity of BJJ practitioners that attended the event.  They had competitors as young as 19 and some almost in their 40’s.  Participants that are professional MMA fighters in the local MMA scene and even some UFC fighters.   I saw engineers, students , lawyers and business men all giving 110% to taste BJJ glory.

Kimbo Slice vs Tay Bledsoe Video Replay, One punch KO

Kimbo Slice vs Tay Bledsoe in a boxing match.
What will you expect if a former Mixed Martial Artist fight in the boxing ring in a boxing rule? Kevin Ferguson aka Kimbo Slice KO his opponent in one punch. Yes its true.
Looks like Kimbo is finding success early in boxing as compared to Mixed Martial Arts. Lets wait the day when he get a match up against a formidable boxer or maybe it would be interesting to watch Kimbo Slice and James Toney in a boxing ring. What do you think?

Meanwhile enjoy Kimbo Slice vs Tay Bledsoe Video Replay

Kurt Angle vs Kmbo Slice in UFC?

What is the truth about Kurt Angle joining Dana White’s UFC?
Is it true that Kurt Angle will fight Kimbo Slice in a PPV fight?
All of these and more is answered by Dana White himself:
Kurt’s Desire To Compete in the UFC: “I like Kurt Angle. He’s a nice guy. I’ve never had any problems with Kurt Angle. Good guy. Kurt Angle was calling me to fight in the UFC. He wanted to fight in the UFC. He wanted to come over here and whatever, especially after Brock got in.” 
Do you want to know what Kurt Angle was offered?
 

What Kurt Angle Was Offered: “What I offered him was, I said, ‘Come over here. I’ll put you on ‘The Ultimate Fighter.’ The season Kimbo Slice was on, I was going to put him on ‘The Ultimate Fighter.’ He wanted to do it. We worked out a deal, but he didn’t pass the medicals.”
Angle’s claim that UFC Wanted Him To Fight Kimbo Slice: : “That’s it. That’s all I’m saying. I never set up a pay-per-view fight for him. I never told him, ‘You’re fighting Kimbo Slice on pay-per-view.’ Kurt, you’re a good guy, but that’s not true, and that never happened. I thought it would be interesting, and I thought it would be cool, but never once did I say, ‘We’re going to set up a pay-per-view match with you and Kimbo.’ That is not true.

Manny Pacquiao Ready to Enter the Octagon for an MMA Fight

 By Trent Reinsmith | http://bleacherreport.com

In a recent interview, Manny Pacquiao, considered by many to be the best pound for pound boxer in the world said, “I want to (MMA fight), but they (his handlers) don’t want me to.”


Now, before you start lining up an opponent, think about what it would cost to get Pac Man into the octagon. Pacquiao was guaranteed $12 million for his March fight against Joshua Clottey. At this time, no MMA organization could guarantee that kind of money, let alone the rumored $40 million Pacquiao would earn in a fight with Floyd Mayweather, Jr.

To think that he would sign with either Ultimate Fighting Championship or Strikeforce for a fight is foolish. At this time, no MMA organization could afford that kind of payout.

In a recent article ESPN.com’s Jake Rossen posits an interesting scenario, sidestepping the current MMA promotions.

Pacquiao is wildly popular and has no need for Dana White and the UFC. Pacquiao’s promoter, Bob Arum, could easily put together an MMA card that would feature Manny against a fighter that would suit Manny’s skill set.

An MMA match such as this would be a farce, but in the end would it be any different from the recent Randy Couture-James Toney fight? Toney and his skill set had no business being in the octagon with the former UFC champ. Yet there he was, “shaking out” to a Couture arm triangle in the first round of their fight.

If Arum promoted a fight with Pacquiao and a clearly overmatched MMA fighter with limited skills would there be a difference? Simply put, the answer is no.

The one thing we would miss out on in the above scenario is the verbal fireworks that could be counted on between Pacquiao’s trainer, Freddie Roach, and Dana White.
