Unfortunately I still don’t know when I – personally – will have my next fight, but there are many others whom I’m excited for. First, I will be heading to Mexico next week for my coach’s wedding (of course the date will officially be the “Day of Love” Feb 14). While many of you may know that I am quite pale and are excited at the prospect of my skin no longer reflecting light, I feel like I may disappoint you. I will either come back the same shade of white or a vibrant red – I’m hoping the former.
There should be some fun people in Mexico, as some of my training partners, as well as Denis Kang, will also be heading down. I’m hoping to train at least once (preferably twice) per day and then I’m not sure what else I will do.
We currently have Diego Wilson preparing for a title fight in Aggression on Mar 11, and then there are 2 fight cards – Battlefield and AFC – that are Mar 26 and Apr 2, respectively. There are many possibilities for our fighters and I’m hoping to see Nick Driedger, Tarek Gebali, Connor Wood and Ryan Janes compete in one of these events. Also, Denis Kang is going to be headlining Battlefield in Nanaimo. Before those events happen, there is a BJJ/grappling tournament in Vancouver on Mar 5 that should have a good number of the ZUMA team competing.
All in all, it’s going to be a busy couple of months. Hopefully, I will have a fight somewhere in there, too. I think the next logical Strikeforce fight for me would be Liz Carmouche…so let’s make it happen!
