From Matt's blog:

Last week, Matt Pena and I went up and trained with Sean Sherk and several other fighters at Greg Nelson's Minnesota Martial Arts Academy (http://www.mmaacombatzone.com/). We were there from Monday through Saturday afternoon. I had a great training session and also a good time. One thing about that gym is that they've got some tough guys in there. No wonder Sean has done as good as he has. The week before that, I was in Salt Lake City training with Jeremy Horn. So the last two weeks have been great.

This week I'll stay at home training at the HIT Squad (http://www.thehitsquad.com/) and try to spend some time with my family before I leave for the UFC on Tuesday. Getting this close to the fight it gets hectic, today I had to get on the phone with the Nevada Athletic Commission for my license. Yesterday I was on a conference call with Matt Serra, Rashad Evans and Lyoto Machida. They do it that way so any interviewer can call in, listen to all the questions that someone else has been asking and then ask their own if they want. I still have several interviews left to do, I just need to tell myself that it comes with the job as I'm not big on being interviewed. I also finally got my shorts lined out with my sponsors on it and my banner. That stuff sometimes gets a little hectic. Got my cornermen all lined out, so I think I'm ready to go for the fight.

I'll try to check in one more time before I leave on Tuesday, so I will talk to you all again next week.

I think it is great that he went up there to train. The more he trains the better he will be beat the little boy.


War!

The update sounds good. Training with Sherk can't hurt at all. I hope the last wekk or so of training goes really well. Stay healthy Matt!
