Default BLOG: UFC Countdown Show

From Matt's blog:

Quote:
As for me it's been training, eating and sleeping. Trying to spend as much time with the family as I can, but there's just not a whole lot to talk about for an interesting blog. This week went great at the gym and, at the end of the week, a camera crew came by the gym to shoot some video footage for the UFC Countdown Show. Here are some stills from that:






A little over a month ago, I bought 16 acres that bordered my property. In the middle of that land is a pond that needs to be cleaned out. It's only about 6-8 feet deep, so I started draining water out of it and realized that it is a pretty good mudhole for a truck. Here's a photo of my old pulling truck that is now jacked up with 44" boggers and a big block Chevy engine.

I've got a 502 that's pretty radical that I wanted to put in the truck, but I can't find the flywheel for it.

Here're a couple of videos of us and some buddies on Saturday:

The second video is Mark playing around on a 4-wheeler. Typical to Mark's style, his 4-wheeler was up in the shed, this happened to be his buddy's. At the end of the day we ended up with both trucks stuck along with the dozer, but we found a tracked tractor to pull them all out.

This weekend, Pena comes to the gym, looking forward to getting in some good time with him as the training continues. I will let you all know when I find out more from Dancing with the Stars. -matt

Looks like fun, Matt! It was hilarious that Mark kept that 4-wheeler going as long as he did!
Nate, how the heck did you keep the mud off your camera?

I didn't, some mud actually got into the camera and interfered with the connections and screwed up the recording. Mark took that 4-wheeler into the water a couple of more times before getting it stuck, but that footage was ruined by the mud in the camera.

Bummer! I cracked up when Matt said to the other guys" I got it guys, you just stay over there and stay dry".
