From Matt's blog:

I'm driving home from the gym as we speak, had another good practice. Right now, I'm hitting 2-a-days and will start my morning running here in a bit.

Last week, I went to Jeremy's and worked with him and Pena and I really feel like I picked up a lot. Not only on the stand up side, but on the ground as well. One thing I'm not bashful about is recognizing that you can go to another place and learn something. Some people feel that their gym knows everything and I just don't see it that way. I'll probably go out to Jeremy's three more times before this fight. I've already talked with him and he's going out to corner me as well.

The HIT Squad's doing well and this week I've had some great practice. I'm lifting weights and getting my cardio in at the gym and I can tell a difference when I get in front of a mirror. I've always been lucky in that after I worked out, it doesn't take me long to see the results.

I do apologize about the late blog, but with a 6-week-old baby at the house and me training for a fight, I've been busy. By the way, Katelyn is doing well, she's on a set schedule and it's working out great.

One thing I did want to comment about was the Trigg/Serra fight. The fight went like I thought it would if they were going to stay on their feet. I don't know why Frank would have done that. I always viewed Frank as a dangerous fighter when he gets on top of somebody. There is no doubt that Frank has a suspect jaw, so why would he stand and trade with somebody that throws like Matt Serra does? I would have liked to have seen Frank take him down and seen what would have happened there.

This weekend is the fight in Australia and HIT Squad's own Brian Foster is matched up with Chris Lytle on the card. Good luck to Brian, I think it's a great match up. As long as Brian keeps his hands up and keeps it a fight, not a boxing match, I think he'll be fine. I didn't go out to the fight, I wanted to stay home and concentrate on training. But like I said, training is going good. My body is definitely on the road for the fight in April.

Here is the Bible verse for the week:
For it is God's will that by doing good you should silence the ignorant talk of foolish men. (1 Peter 2:15)

I'd guess not. Wouldn't want anyone accusing Mark of doing Matt's fighting for him! :laugh:

Well, I hope he does get to go. If Matt is like me, I always feel better (calmer and stronger inside) when my twin is with me. :ninja: It's a twin thang.... :laugh:

Will you be helping out this season?

I'll help out where ever I can, but there's not much for me to do during planting season.

Nope. There's no way I could afford that plane ticket.

Nope. There's no way I could afford that plane ticket.

Which means no great pics! :sad: Not that that's the only reason I'm sad you're not getting to go, Nate.

Well Matt's gonna be taking a ton of training equipment, right? Why not just empty out one of his suitcases & hide in the duffel? :frantics:

Agreed! I think the entire forum should go on strike until Matt agrees to take NateR with him & get him another press-pass for this fight!
:punch: :punch: :punch: STRIKE FOR NATER! NO SCABS!! VIVA LA NATER!!!! :punch: :punch: :punch:

I agree...but can we do something else...rather then going on strike...because I love to post...and so do you.

I know

DARE YOU to start a thread in the Matt Hughes Section entitled "Petition for NateR to go to The Middle East" or something of that nature...you could launch a poll...and see if others feel the same way we do...if we get a majority in the next week that say Nathan should...we send the linkey-doo in a PM to Hughes...if not...we delete the thread and pretend we never thought Nathan valuable enough to go anyway :laugh::laugh: I would start it....but I dont want to add a "Berschmarck" on my reputation as a Moderator :mellow:

Holy crap, that's an awesome idea!! It could be an ongoing story, with him showing people prepping for the trip (Matt, Jon, Veach, Marc, Jeremy, etc.) & then show clips of the action once he gets back. He'd be like a field correspondent!!
