    When Jackson first got a call from Legacy matchmaker Collin Cantrell recently, he was really confused. Cantrell was talking about Gall and Legacy and a fight in early February. Jackson wasn't really sure where he fit in.

    "In my head I'm thinking, 'Y'all gonna fly me to Minnesota to come take pictures of Mickey Gall?'" Jackson said.

    No, Cantrell explained to Jackson. We want you to fight Gall, the matchmaker told him.

    "I was like, 'Fight who?'" Jackson said. "He's like, 'If you fight Mickey Gall, you get CM Punk.' That's how they're hyping this up to me. I was like, 'This makes no sense. What are you talking about?'"
    "To me, this is a big troll," Jackson said. "This is a massive troll by everyone involved here."

    "You have CM Punk, who has no MMA experience, fighting. You got this kid Mickey Gall, who literally wins one fight -- he's fighting in some small town in Jersey that Dana White happened to be at and was like, 'I want to fight CM Punk.' And he gets signed by the UFC. And then you got me. All my experience is in boxing and kickboxing. Now I'm in the UFC. It's like, 'What the fuck is going on here?'"
    "Literally a week after I got back in the gym, they were like, 'Hey, do you want to fight in the UFC?'" Jackson said. "I was like, 'What the fuck?'"

    Proportionality aside, how dumb can Jones be? Is it really that hard to stay squeaky clean?

    I once accidentally let my car's insurance/MOT slide out of date. You know what I did when I needed to get somewhere? Took a fucking taxi. Dude could straight up hire a motorcade to travel around in if he wanted to.

    Athletes think they can drive themselves, and look down on people who use taxis and stuff

    And then they get pulled over, arrested, drunk driving, etc and wonder why their career's fucked and everybody thinks they're stupid

    Got a seminar with Garry Tonon this weekend! Also caught a black belt with a vaporizer so very happy with that. Exhausted and beat to absolute shit but should be a good week.

    Ben Rothwell vs JDS got announced, basically everyone in the heavyweight division was out with injury to they had Rothwell take it on somewhat short notice.

    Well Randleman died of Pneumonia? I don't think that's related to steroid abuse? I mean he had heart failure on top, but Pneumonia ain't no joke that shit can level you healthy or not.

    With proper care it generally does not kill you without something else being wrong, like a weakened heart.

    Yeah, just 'dead at 44' brought flashbacks to a giant list of pro wrestler deaths, and I know the 90s and the Pride days weren't exactly the easiest on these guys.

    Have to wonder how much steroids contributed but also that staph infection he had that nearly killed him before may have been a factor.

    Yeah I read he had that nasty staph that drilled a hole in his abdomen, then the flu, then pneumonia and then a heart attack while in hospital. Shit sucks man... Fuck 2016

    Yeah it was all a long time ago but the severity of it makes me wonder if he had long term health complications. Garry Tonon seminar this weekend! Wooooo! Also EBI being on UFC fight pass is pretty awesome for those guys, it's a pretty cool show the way they have it set up.

    Sure thing. Also this next EBI is an absolute division and there's some huge dudes. Cyborg Abreu is a big guy especially compared to say Eddie Cummings.

    During an interview with MMA Fighting, CM Punk’s future UFC opponent Mickey Gall said that Punk could still fight at UFC 200. Gall told the site that according to Dana White, Punk’s recovery time from surgery for a herniated disc is expected to be about four weeks.

    Gall noted that the recovery time means that he and Punk could fight at UFC 200. Punk underwent surgery for the disc on Wednesday.

    Well UFC had Brock give them huge numbers for 100, can Punk do the same here?

    I really doubt it. Brock was very easy to buy as a legit MMA threat in spite of his lack of experience, the same isn't really true for Punk.

    Seminar was awesome. He's going at him as is. He's just an average sized dude, expected him to be bigger. His technical stuff is very very detailed, very informal seminar and he taught for something like 3 and a half or 4 hours. The stuff he's working with heel hooks is just gross, it's way too easy to tear someone's ACL. Definitely gonna tap a little earlier then before seeing how nasty his are and knowing that's out there.

    Lots of talk about Palhares, what he does well that Garry took from watching him, a steroid shout out and plenty of mentions about how he was gonna get his leg broken if he tapped or not, either way. There's a particular knee bar Garry seems to think is a real threat. Finally, one of the kids drew Garry a good luck card and drew a picture of Garry beating Palhares in crayon and it was goddamnn adorable.

    Definitely one of the better seminars I've been to, get a chance to go to one of his definitely do it.

    Being the only southpaw in my class is an awkward experience. And since we're all beginners it tends to really throw off the pad holders.

    On the other hand, what better excuse to study Coban, Saenchai, and Yodsanklai? Goddamn I love watching Muay Thai fights.

    One of my main sparring partners over the year is a real lanky southpaw who has had a few fights, having southpaws around is great, you have to get a feel for it, it's a different game. When he started he was landing left head kicks constantly ((and eating overhand rights)) and we all adjusted so now when southpaws come in we hold up much much better. Holding for southpaws is a pain in the ass though still throws me a bit.
