Brandon Vera’s thoughts on Conor McGregor’s dispute with UFC

I have been asked a number of times about my thoughts on Conor McGregor’s dispute with the UFC.

First, I understand why many fighters may not like McGregor personally because of his promotional antics and some of the comments he has made about his fellow competitors. It did not sit well with me that Conor didn’t stand by Jose Aldo when the promotion threw him under the bus after Aldo’s injury. I cannot, however, be blinded by past events. The fact is McGregor’s current conflict with the promoter is a struggle we all share. When the dispute is between promoter and fighter—I already know what side I am on—the fighter. I am a fighter.

Conor is approaching perhaps the biggest fight of his career coming off of his first loss. I fully appreciate his desire and need to focus his energy on a successful training camp, and for wanting to limit and schedule his promotional obligations around that camp. Conor is a master promoter as it is—if he wants extra time in camp—how can anyone argue? As professional athletes, first and foremost, our obligation is to prepare and compete at our best. Conor is asking for nothing less, for having a say in the amount and timing of his promotional duties and this is something all fighters should sympathize with. Currently, this issue isn’t just McGregor’s, but all mixed martial artists who have no say in when or how they are promoted, and they receive no additional compensation for extra promotional obligations.

This is why I support Conor McGregor. This is why I think all fighters should support not just Conor but the MMAFA too. This why we are fighting against one-sided coercive contracts that prevent us from getting our market value. This is why we’re working to get the Ali Act extended to Mixed Martial Arts so we are protected from promoters forcing us to accept every demand they make and are able to enjoy a free market.

I’m doing this so McGregor and every fighter doesn’t have to put up with this in the future. If McGregor joins us that would be great. It would likely make this happen faster and easier if he did. But even if he doesn’t I’m still going to work for this because i believe every fighter deserves these things.

I look forward to the day a couple years from now when we’ve succeeded, and McGregor is signing the biggest contract in combat sports history. I will know I stood on the line and fought for this to happen, to improve the great sport of MMA and to better the plight of my fellow athletes. We are succeeding—we are already seeing changes. That, in my opinion, is no coincidence.

I hope Conor and every fighter recognizes our mutual interests.

PRIDE FC: Enson Inoue vs Igor Vovchanchyn FULL FIGHT VIDEO

PRIDE FC Enson Inoue vs Igor Vovchanchyn

Enson Inoue submitted who seemed like an unstoppable Randy Couture in 1999 in Vale Tudo Japan ..this cemented him to the world as a Premiere fighter athlete and true world contender.

In this fight against Igor,– most people felt that Ensons groundfighting game would easily defeat Igor, but the only problem is that Enson wasnt there for the win.He was there for the fight.

Inoue was hospitalized for days with fractures to his skull, a shattered orbital, and a broken eardrum,etc … its funny that despite that, this still goes down, above all his other career highlights, as his favorite fight.

For Enson still its not nearly about winning the fight nearly as much as it is about the Way you Fight. .. Its easy for anyone to say that they will fight to the end. For others, its impossible to say that they wont.

ONRA:Interview w/ Martial Artist, Brogan “Killer Bee” Walker

March 23, 2016 by  
Filed under FokaiFemme

We got to sit down with the “Killer Bee” herself and had a couple of questions regarding her success not only in martial arts but in life.


Brogan Walker Team Teiya

What martial arts means to me personally:

Since I was young, studying martial arts has provided me with a meaningful personal philosophy.
Martial arts has enriched my life with principles that guide my personal growth and has allowed me to continue affecting the lives of others’ positively.

It is my personal belief that the way in which you understand your art/discipline reflects greatly in your life.
True mastery of your craft happens when it spills over into other areas of a our life.
The lessons I learn on the mat are the very same principles that drive my successes off the mat. When I feel tired or even injured in training but continue regardless, I begin to think ‘if I can do that, what else can I do?’ and from there begins a martial artists’ journey through the exploration of personal-potential. My shortcomings become evident as I push my mind, body and spirit to the limits and for that martial arts means the world to me. I am eternally grateful to be able to share with others what martial arts has taught me.

How it has affected me:

The way in which martial arts has impacted me the most is by its environment alone.
It has drawn many positive people to me through training. My students, team mates and coaches are the the people who, like me, are crazy enough to put on gloves or a kimono at the end of a long day at work or school and work on their craft.
It has taught me that it is our hard work and actions as a person that prove our value and not what others think about us.
Through making the transition to MMA I have seen how important it is to turn my ‘weaknesses’ into my strengths.

How does being an instructor Muay Thai affect you as a student of Jiu Jitsu?

Stephen Roberto, Mike Sanchez, Brogan Walker, Steve Oshiro

Studying Muay Thai and Jiu Jitsu go hand in hand. Though the techniques themselves are different, many concepts and theories are the same. Being a Muay Thai instructor, has taught me how to balance the responsibilities I have in learning and developing techniques, with the commitment I have to my students’ leaning and development.
First and foremost as an instructor I have to be proactive about learning and developing my own technique. Next I have to make sure that I can relay that information in a way that is easy for my team to comprehend without handing it to them on a silver platter so-to-speak. This means maintaining a delicate balance of sharing information and allowing room for self-discovery. It can be challenging but my goal is to be selfish with acquiring knowledge and selfless in sharing it. Becoming a student in Jiu Jitsu continues to remind me of this balance. Training Jiu Jitsu put me back in the ‘student mind-frame’ which reminds me to keep an open mind.

How does your venture in MMA fit into your life as a mixed martial artist?

If could answer this question in one word it would be ‘snug’
Between the demands of work and school I juggle my commitment to both Muay Thai and Jiu Jitsu and train somewhere between 2-5 hours of each, every week. As I quickly learned, if you want to be competitive in Mixed Martial Arts you need to dedicate as much time as possible. Facilitating group classes and personal training takes up about 10-15 hours a week and I wake up early on alternating days to meet with my strength and conditioning coach/ nutritionist.
While it keeps my schedule busy not to mention hectic, I have the perk of being able to squeeze in time with my other half (fiancé Mike Sanchez) who trains with me much of the time. We are able to travel in order to learn different methods and techniques and don’t miss out on time with each other. Having such a strong support group made my transition to professional Mixed Martial Arts a very natural and positive experience.
