Great Performance!

Good job GSP. Also Keith Jardine, Eliot Marshall & Chaun Sims fought and won in the Dominican Republic. Congratulations guys!!

Hey guys! Can anyone help?

My Wrestling coach's teammate is 27 years old and just found out that he has oral cancer. It's stage 3 and he has to have half of his tongue removed immediately. My coach set up a fund for him. Every little bit helps. Here is what my coach wrote:
I am writing this regarding one of my former teammates (h.s. and college), and someone I have been friends with since I started wrestling 23 years ago. Chad Haakenson, who many of you might remember wrestled with me at Lyons our whole lives, and then wrestled with me at Dana College as well, has been diagnosed with oral cancer at 27 years old. Wrestling is, and always has been a huge part of his life. He just recieved the news last week and it looks like he will go through chemo He is very positive that the mental toughness he has gained through wrestling will help him through this. I left him with a few quotes "Once you've wrestled everything else is easy" and "tough times don't last but tough people do What I am asking is that anyone who can add him as a friend on Facebook and leave him a post wrestling related and let him know that we are behind him. Also, bills are already adding up and with insurance deductables, co-pays he is already in the hole about $10k so anyone that can or wants to help please email me at You can send donations made out to The Chad Haakenson Fund (Bank of the West), P.O. Box 920 Lyons, CO 80540 Thanks guys Leister Bowling

God is good!

I just arrived home and my wife and two little girls greeted me inside the airport with a welcome home poster! I have to say, I'm heart broken over this loss but I have to put my trust in God. I really felt at the end of the fight that I had won. I thought I won rounds 2 & 3 and the first was close. I felt I did more damaging shots and had more takedowns. I knew the fight was close but I felt I won at least 2 rounds. His punches would tap me and score points, but nothing rocked me. I rocked Okami several tines though. I should have pushes forward a bit more throughout and especially round three. All I can say is I did my best yesterday and I will improve from here. I'm still top of the division and top of the world ranking. I'm going to rest now and take a step back, then I'll come back and figure out what I can do. I will be champion one day. This is just a small step back.

Dinner #2

Salmon salad with guacamole dressing. No salt no sodium.

My dinner

Penne pasta and mackerel

Life on the road

Duane Ludwig. He's here fighting on 122 also. Yesterday, his wife gave birth to a new baby boy named Duane Bang Ludwig! He's on the phone with her now.

This is my lunch

I have to eat low/ no sodium foods on the day before weigh-ins. This is the best weight cut meal I've ever had. Usually there is no flavor but Fred the Chef knew how to make it.
It's meatball salad.
Apple/ arugula drink

Press conference

We just finished the press conference. This guy is one of the reporters. Do you like his denim jean suit jacket?

I'm on the plane now. I had a great camp and I'm very confident! I can't wait to get out there and fight. Thank you all for your support! I'm not sure how much Internet access I'll have out there but I'll try to keep y'all updated. Let's do this!

I'm taking ambien and in another world now!
