I was very impressed with the way Brandon Rios fought Mike Alvarado yesterday. Rios demonstrated speed and power, and great movement to defeat Alvarado. Rios used his Jab to open up Alvarado, and was very successful with his brutal uppercuts and body shots. Alvarado did not have an answer for anything that Rios brought to the table. Even with the couple of haymakers that Alvarado threw, Rios was able to avoid them and not get hit very much in his 3rd round TKO victory. I hope Rios keeps this up and continues to fight light he did Saturday night.

When people come to a crossroads either it be personal or external conflict, family, or injuries there are choices to be taken. Either give in to the problem or situation at hand, or pick yourself up and overcome. After dislocating his shoulder at a recent event in Ohio, the only choice for Murat is to keep on with the fight and learn from the problems that other people might take for granted. Not only does his state of mind allow him to preservere over his obstructions, but his goal of being an elite athlete has become his stepping stone in allowing him to accomplish this. In talking to Murat he reminds me of a Connor McGregor, both of them are in to be champions by Obliterating the Whole Competition! Now this statement isnt something to be taken lightly.
As he gains his speed and gets back into the condition he was in before, one of his focuses is studying his opponents, learning new techniques from guys like Jeff Camp. His injury doesnt hold him back from watching his teammates and learning all aspects of fighting sports. He expects to train light work in early February. East Dayton Boxing Club has been his training ground for boxing and Heated Combat MMA to complete his training regiment making him an all around fighter. His training and work ethic has not only caught our eye but he is also going to be in a book that will feature Ohio fighters that have influenced the scene.
