Gidday fellas. I'm a long time reader of mmamania.com but I decided over the last few days I'd join up and get involved in the debates, shit talking and general mayhem that's brought me plenty of laughs when I check the news of a morning.
I'm 22 from Sydney, Australia working full time but also squeeze in time to train after hours. I recently kicked off a side gig of managing amateur fighters from any discipline to get them involved in events across Australia and New Zealand.
The first live event I watched was UFC 64 where Sean Sherk was in his prime and Rich Franklin lost his title. I haven't missed an event since and I'm a big fan of Franklin, Belcher and Big Country, as well as the new face from Australia: Robby Whittaker.
I trained with Whittaker casually from 2008-2010 at PMA in my town when he fought locally. I found my boxing was poor so I began only training boxing for the last year to get comfortable to then jump back into MMA.
That's enough about me! I thought I'd introduce myself before I start commenting and some of you older guys would begin to think who the hell is this guy. I'm keen to get involved.
