From Matt's blog:

Quote:
Sorry about the super late blog, I have been busy and Nate has been busy as well. So once again my apologies.

Training was great for this fight. Had some tough workouts at my gym and also went out to Salt Lake City and got to train with Jeremy, his guys and Matt Pena. My three corners for this fight will be Robbie Lawler, Matt Pena and Jeremy Horn. I really feel that my cornermen are the best in the business.

Just did a little interview with my hometown paper, one of the questions was asking how I felt about being the oldest man on the card. I turned around and said that I appreciated him pointing that out to me and that I hadn't even thought about it. To be honest, it doesn't matter to me. I guess I'm just glad I've been able to have as long of a career as I have. So many other people out there who have fought in the UFC wouldn't even think of fighting as long as I have. So I guess I look at it as a privilege.

I think Ricardo will be hungry for this fight, I've beaten two Gracies and a teammate and, back about ten years ago, I beat Ricardo himself in a grappling match in Abu Dhabi. So on one hand he's got a lot of motivation and on the other he sees what I just listed and knows I'm a threat. I think he will come at me hard and try to get me down to the ground somehow. He wants to be on top of me, but I'm sure if he's on the ground he'll be happier than on his feet.

I don't think my weight cut will be hard for this fight, as I've been doing good with my exercise and diet. Here is my banner for the fight and I will look to try to check in with a blog after I weigh in on Friday:

Here is the Bible verse for this week:

For all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God, and are justified freely by His grace through the redemption that came by Jesus Christ. (Romans 3:23-24)

I know Matt loves John Wayne so I was trying to find a little sound from a John Wayne western to get the mood going and came across this little clip from Mclintock (one of my favorite JW movies). Good striker!

For Matt:
