It’s my way of showing my appreciate for my fans out there! Who knows, you might get a special gift with your order too!
Just a quick note to let everyone that has purchased tickets for the Just Cause MMA tour: it has been canceled for reasons that are out of my hands.

New Evile “Infected Nations” reissue from my friends at Earache Records. If you haven’t heard of these guys, you need to, and they’re on tour soon with Gamma Bomb and Bonded by Blood (another two great bands). Had the pleasure of going to their offices in Nottingham last week to pic up some new vinyl! Thank you Ali and to all the team at Earache for your continued support!

I’ve made the shortlist for International Fighter of the Year at the World MMA Awards alongside Aoki, Overeem, Hathaway and Sotiropolous. You’ve got 54 days to put your vote in for me. It’s an honor just to be nominated, but it would be even better to get the award!» Continue Reading...
I recently had the pleasure of doing Amoeba Music’s “What’s In My Bag.” For those of you that don’t know Amoeba, it’s one of the best record stores in the country. Two floors, wall to wall with everything you could ever want. They let me wander the shop for hours, picking out some of my favorite CDs and some new ones, and then they interviewed me about my selections. It was good fun, and god knows I love record shopping. Sometimes training camp gets a bit routine, so myself and Team Rough House are always looking for new tunes to keep us focused. Click here to watch the video on their site.» Continue Reading...
