Kept up with UFC quite a bit years ago and just starting to follow it again more closely. Alway been a fan of Matt Hughes, his career and most importantly how he is set apart as a man of faith within his arena. Just finished his Made In America book and really enjoyed it.
I don't have any MMA training, but have always spent my extra time in the gym. Some buddies of mine are beginning to set up a strongman gym and I am looking forward to training somewhere else besides a "fitness center" haha. Bring on the tractor tires!! Besides the gym I spend my time working with my church as a worship director and my full time career is in the area of financial advisory.
Wife and I are expecting our first child in May, 2010 so that is a whole new world that is beginning to come together for us. So excited!
Glad to be here and excited about getting to know many of you through the forums!
Welcome brother.. it's great to have you here...
