#throwbackthursday – One day I received a long distance call from 13-time UFC Veteran Spencer “The King” Fisher. I had seen Spencer fight many times on television but we had never met in person. During our talk he mentioned that he had watched my fights against Jon Fitch & Josh Koscheck and wanted to offer me the position of head coach for his UFC 120 Training Camp.
With the amazing support of my family, students and staff I decided to do it; knowing that the experience would improve my skills as a coach/teacher. I lived in Spencer’s house for the next five weeks and we trained hard 2-3 times per day until it was fight time. I also made some great memories with many new friends. On October 16th, 2010 we were victorious at the O2 Arena in London, England. What an amazing feeling!
