Default BLOG: Just training...

From Matt's blog:

Well, sorry for the late blog, but as you all know I've been busy. I know most of you are wanting to know how my training is going, but to be honest I really don't want to say much about it. After the fight, I'll talk more about the training, but all I can say now is that it's going very well. With all of my training, I don't have a whole lot to say so I thought I'd bring some things up from the past. Here's a few things that maybe some of you have never seen before:
XYIENCE "Country Breakfast" (2006)
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5uOAkAKAvw0

That commercial even gave Nate the idea of me having my own breakfast cereal and here is the concept illustration that he made for that:


There were also these commercials I did for XYIENCE:
XYIENCE "Cross-Sporting" (2006)
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=b8YGgUpXULQ
XYIENCE UFN Promo (2006)
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pUvNMxsXNMA

When I'm travelling I always have my laptop with me and I've got tons of pictures on there and here are a few pictures that I look at frequently:

This is from the day Hanna was born:


Joey's first day at the big school (kindergarten):


Some pictures of Hanna:



with Bobo (her grandfather)


This is one of my favorite pictures of Hanna

Joey, Hanna and Brandon in the big bed. (When Hanna wants to sleep with us, she always says "I want to sleep in the big bed"):


Audra and some of her friends at one of my fights (I can't remember which one):


Me and Matt Pena:


Finally, I just like the message that this picture sends:

Until next week... -matt

Man, I can't believe it's been 3 years since Country Breakfast! Nate, I'm stealing the logo for my sig!!!

Anyone got a link to the interview where Matt talks about reprimanding Joey for kicking with his toe instead of his shin?

I met Matt for the first time right after the country breakfast commercial came out. Nathan had sent me to meet him at a Dave & Busters in Orange County,Ca where he was going to do a sports radio interview.
Matt was telling me about some friends or a friend that owned a motorcycle shop ( or something like that. It's been so long) anyway, he said either the friend that owned the place, or friends that owned the place were making fun of him for the waving out the limo part.He was wearing the tshirt of that motorcycle shop that very day so he asked me to take some pictures of him outside the limo that took him from the hotel to Dave & Busters ( he was in town at the time for Tim's fight UFC 59) to kinda joke about the whole thing. I still have the pictures.

Wasn't it supposed to be a meet & greet and you were like the only person who showed up?

It was put up on the UFC website pretty much a couple of hours before if that long. You told me about it before it even went up. It was the first time UFC came to California and they had fighters everywhere for meet and greets.
I went up to him outside as he pulled up right before me, then there was one girl that came to meet him but the radio thing was in like a back room and no one was in there but the radio people ( two of them and they were live as we walked in) then towards the end a handful of people came in and when Matt was finished I took pictures of them with Matt for them.
So, I guess it was a meet and greet, just a badly planned last minute one. I'll never forget it as it was also my first UFC event.Tim won and Forrest almost did. I couldnt talk for two days from all the screaming I did
