I am blessed in this life. I know it and I am happily living out my dream. So far Brazil has been an incredible experience. I made weight this morning and I am enjoying my day but feeling pretty excited for the fights. I close my eyes and I can see myself flowing in the […]

Time to fight! I am so excited, but there has been an enormous amount of waiting around…and there still is a little more. I can’t wait. See you all after the fight.
Whew, Justin is in rare form. LOL. But we made it. We are in Toronto and ready to fight. Check out the vid for an update and deets on our travel day…the day before fight day.
