Happy Star Wars Day all my grappling nerds! I will try not to run off on a rant like a rabid Tauntaun on Hoth, but you really should throw down some popcorn with the loved one tonight and watch at least the single best of the trilogy; Empire Strikes Back. I mean... first appearance of the baddest man in all the galaxies... Boba Fett!
Back on planet earth we are merely eight days away from the World Jiu Jitsu Expo in Long Beach, CA. held next Saturday, and check out this AMAZING super-fight list:
This just in from Bloodyelbow.com "bad boy" Nick Diaz will be donating all of his proceeds to the St. Jude Children's Hospital. I grow tired of the shit the Diaz brothers take because of the media and them speaking their minds. I have never met Nick, but Nate was nothing but soft spoken and humble when I met him in 09. My coach Brian has trained with them numerous times and speaks very highly of their demeanor and character. Nick's match against Estima has great potential (as do all the super fights), and the fact that he is donating his money to a worthy cause just makes me like him all the more!
For those of us not named Scotty or Shortround who cannot see such awesomeness live, we have one saving grace option... a live stream for only $9.95 on mobileblackbelt.tv. So tune in an see some AMAZING super fights to scratch that BJJ itch you got!
