    Rogue is right, just reference Ken Shamrock's lack of stamina to prove it.

    Also, Nick Diaz barely lifts weights, I know one of his training partners, Diaz is very weak in the weight room while Lawler is definately a juicer and is very strong.

    Hey KTW: what camp are you out of? maybe we know some of the same people? I am out of one of Cesar's Schools here in the bay area. Gil Melendez teaches here sometime as our head trainer trained with him and Jake Shields. my original trainer is Joao Pierini he was the head bjj trainer for gladiators gym Eugene Jackson, Tim Laijick, He fought in the UFC himself also. I have fought in the IFC and in Warriors Quest in Hawaii. and am now training with my new camp to make a return. Glad to meet other fighters on here

    I don't train in California and I stopped training last semester due to school.

    I train at a very small camp. Our coach is Jeff Funicello, he was on the olympic Greco-Roman team for 12 years. He was an AAU kickboxing champion in the early 90's and competed in a lot of smaller events. I know he won a few Silver metals at the Pan Am games, not sure what else he won but he has a long list of 1st place matches against some reputable wrestler. He never did any huge matches himself but was part of the origonal Team Phoenix with Don Frye and is best friends with Dan Henderson and trains often with Dan and Randy Couture. He was actually scheduled to fight in PHX in the early 90s against Renzo Gracie, but the card was canceled at the last minute because the venue refused to broadcast the event. He is an absolutely phenominal wrestling coach, and is very well rounded. He usually trains with Hendo before his upcoming Pride matches. We've actually had Hendo, Heath Sims, Couture, etc. as guest technicians before. Most of the year we also have a guy named Dave Spangler, the Air Force wrestling coach who is a beast has near perfect technique. A few of our guys wrestle internationally, one of the up and comers is Abe Haddon, guy is also a beast. As you can probably tell we focus a lot on the Greco aspect. Recently we got a bjj specialist, his name is Keiran Gallagher, he is a black belt under the one of the Machado schools, very accomplished grappler, very unorthodox. Jeff basically teaches us the Greco and striking aspect along with most of the ground work and Keiran is sort of the refiner and teaches us a lot of interesting little details that are very helpful.

    So ya, pretty small school, very well rounded and experienced people, we usually send guys to Grapplers Quest events and smaller tourneys like RITC and KOTC. Jeff actually coached a guy that I think was in UFC 9 or 10, I'll try to get his name but he won his fight and was fairly big at the time.

    Drew Fickett started out under Jeff, and so did a few other AZ based fighters. As I said I am not training right now. My goal is to bulk up a little bit and then drop some bodyfat so I can eventually compete in the light heavyweight class. I hope to return Spring semester or Fall 07, not training is so friggin boring you don't even know.

    Also forgot to add most of my match experience is between local schools and meets. I trained for 2 years and was fairly good in my weight class, then I gained 30 lbs and had some catching up to do with my skill and stamina. As I said I hope to compete at 205 eventually.

    Wrong.

    Fedor lifted alot of weights and he said so especially in his judo days. Since he already has a very good weightlifting base he focuses more on speed and power exercises. People who attended his Cali seminar have said that he is very very strong and powerful.

    Nogueira is also very strong. When he had surgery on his arm, the doctor commented that his tendons were twice as large from the norm. And recently for the OWGP he said he was spending more time in the gym to bulk up to 240 because he wanted the extra strength because he felt he was too weak. So much for just skill.

    Baroni/Vitor are explosive athletes and aren't naturally built for endurance whether or not they lift weights. And Vitor is at least on the same level as Tito. He only lost via a narrow split decision.

    I didn't think this deserved it's own thread, but Bonnar tested positive for Boldenone in his last fight. Roids don't win fights I guess.

    No, but EQ would help out with RBC count and stamina because EQ is not a mass or a strength steroid.

    Nice avator, Rodja. I had a picture of Wandy doing strongman lifts with tires, but I don't have the required "status" to have an avator.

    Nate Marquardt avoid any suspension or fines when he tested postive for anabolics by saying he mistaken and unknowingly took OTC supps contain ph/steroids. Bonnar should do the same and say he took I-Force's bold. Of course he may lose his Xyience or Fizogen contract or whatever supp contract but at least he can save some face.

    Marquardt's positive test was a false positive; when he took the B sample it came back clean.

    On to the next question: Do you think anabolic steroids in MMA is ethical?
    lol, the knockout on that muay tai guy i think was classic. lol kohler just jumps bak and forth lookin like hes doin a lat flex lol, and BAM knocks the crap outta the other guy. i think it lasted 30 secs as well. lol hes style of fighting is similar to what ive been training, move around alot, when doing standup use the strength adv. to get in close even if reach advantage is better and then get out. a 210 lb guy a foot away will do more damage with his hands than by take a scenic route and simply stay back throwin useless jabs. of course i guess u could kinda say he was doin this at first lol.
    heres kohler-->http://www.mma-news.com/brad_kohler.jpg

    http://www.sherdog.com/fightfinder/Pictures/kohler.jpg
    sux he lost a lot of his last matches, prob.attribute him being round 39-40 during his last losses. heard he was a crap promoter too......maybe he lost b/c of his guilt lol.. too bad.
