From Matt's blog:

Well, this weekend GSP will face Dan Hardy. I think the match will go however GSP wants it to go. If Georges wants to stand, he'll stand, if he wants to take Dan down, he'll take him down. This could be a one-sided fight, but it all depends on which GSP shows up. To be honest, I don't even know who else is on the card, I've been too busy training to really worry about it.

My training has been going great, last week I went to Jeremy's. This week, I flew Demarques Johnson and Matt Pena to train with me at the HIT Squad. I definitely feel I could go three rounds right now and next week will just put me over the top. My sparring, wrestling and submissions are right where I want them to be. I even feel that I look decent when I get in front of the mirror (no pictures for you, Michelle).

One of the reasons, why it's taken me this long to write the blog is because of the health bill. To be honest, I don't know much about what it says exactly; but I believe if you ask most of the politicians out there who voted for it, they would say the same thing. I'm a person that has always believed in rewarding hard work, the word entitlement does not exist in my vocabulary. I'm not going to go off on a rant, but I will never vote for somebody who voted for this bill.

I was on a trip with the Cage Fitness (http://cagefitness.com/) crew and we were talking about love and the way people show their love. This is something that I posted in my forums a year or so ago and I believe is definitely worth reviewing. Remember the two most important things Jesus said was to love God with all of your heart, soul, mind and strength and to love your neighbor as yourself; so take a look and maybe you'll learn something like I did:

Got a buddy up in Canada, who I am going to be hunting with here soon. I just wanted to let you all know that if you wanted to book any hunts for this year, he would be somebody I would highly recommend. I've been up there and he runs a great camp. There is even a chance that three people could go hunting with me this fall, they would just need to pay their expenses up there. So check them out at http://www.buckparadise.com/

Here is the Bible verse for this week:
For I am the Lord, your God, who takes hold of your right hand and says to you, do not fear; I will help you. (Isaiah 41:13)

You said no pictures for Michelle...how about for me? :rolleyes: It's good to hear that your training is where you want it to be, but I've never doubted your heart and know that you will push yourself to be the best competitor you can possibly be.

And for the record, I'm a nurse who is against the current healthcare reform bill. This isn't the place for me to talk about why. There's a thread for that already and I don't want to much up your blog with a debate. :)

Thanks for the update Matt! Im glad training is going well and let me just say that I dont doubt you for a minute!!! I dont think very many of us are about the new Obamacare and dont believe that very many of us voted for anyone who are supporting it! Its going to be awesome to see you back in the cage! The closer it gets the more excited I am. And you should consider posting some pics for me, I mean Amy! It is her birthday ya know! :Whistle:

Thanks for the update Matt..

Renzo is actually in Charlotte next week and I am part of the "detail" that will be working the show... autographs and pictures and such.. I am hoping that I get to talk to him after.. Going to see if I can "interview" him on tape..

Would much rather it be you haning out "down south".

Any fighter gets some respect from me just by stepping up to fight..

I know the health reform bill has really upset many Americans on this Forum :unsure-1:

I am glad to hear that your training is going well, not long to go now :happydancing:

Thank you for reposting links to that thread about how to love. I think its really important to remind ourselves that we should love others like we love ourselves. That as Christians we are called to treat people differently then the world dictates :)

Hope you have a blessed Passion-tide :w00t:

i hate to say it but matt was wrong about one thing, the fight did not go however georges wanted it to go! lol


i think georges has already hit his decline early. i really don't see him being champ for too much longer

Well,

I love the 5 Love Languages book, we got it as a wedding gift and instantly read it! At that time, my love language was quality time, but it has changed into gifts!!!! :)

The Health Care Bill is absolutely ridiculous!!! I cant believe what is coming of this nation and it scares me on what is yet to come.:unsure:

Keep up the good work with training Matt, cant wait until the 10th!:punch:Thats my birthday party night, our friends and I will be watching and cheering loudly!

Feel free to pm me some pics!!! :w00t:
