I wanted to wait and talk about this for a while and really see what everyone in the fight world has been thinking and saying about the latest former WWE wrestler Phil “CM Punk” Brooks leaving his wrestling boots for MMA. WOW is all I’ve got to say! There is one man who wants to fight him and he is begging the UFC to give him the green light. That man is none other then 4-0, Jason David Frank aka “Tommy, The Green Ranger”. Many of you will remember him from the hit TV show, Power Rangers.
That’s right! You read it correctly. JDF of television fame wants this fight. Now I know you are all saying that JDF and Brooks fighting each other would be nothing more than a publicity stunt and that they won’t fight for real. I can tell you right now YOUR WRONG. JDF has fought 4 times in MMA and he is really good. In case you didn’t know he has been training in martial arts since he was 4 years old and got his master’s instructors degree from Master Toddy in Thailand in Thai-Boxing. So, he would take this fight seriously and can be a worthy enough opponent to fight Brooks in earnest.
Also, lets not forget that Brooks has been training in martial arts since he was 5 years old in Kenpo, Jiu-Jitsu, and Thai-Boxing. And, yes, he is a former WWE wrestler but don’t let that fool you for a minute. Those WWE guys have the sickest cardio you will ever see and the stamina to go along with it.
On the other side of the room, there are other people who say that Brooks wouldn’t last in the grappling competition, Metamoris. Again, his former WWE career casts those doubts upon him. When Brooks wasn’t on the road he was with the Gracie’s training in BJJ and has said this many times “I will remain a white belt to keep learning and making myself better”. That is a sign of a true grappler in my eyes. We will find out soon who will take on Brooks in his first MMA fight.
TUF – This is the last episode before the finale on Friday December 12, 2014 in Las Vegas and I am super excited. All season long we have been seeing these ladies put it on the line and demonstrating that they all are the best 115lbs Strawweights to make the show! And as the title says “A Champion will be Crowned”. I know a lot of people aren’t fans of women fighters but I AM A FAN. I never grow tired of watching these ladies show how much heart and drive they have for this sport along with their sheer desire to be the first Champion in the UFC for the Strawweights. We don’t know who is going to fight for the championship yet but we will after tonight so lets get ready to see some fireworks.
