For the Sherdoggers who trains in MMA or just a single discipline, who had inspired you to train?
uhhh all the bullies picking on me inspired me not to die? if that counts. near purple belt level grappling skills helped me put highlight reel street level asswhooping on a few and the bullying stopped. teach your kids
In 1993 me and some friends saw the PPV of UFC1 and were like...WTF?!?!?! The closest real fighting we were doing was kickboxing. Immediately started training Judo and engaging in illegal VHS tape trading as the instructional videos starting coming out to train ourselves.
Jose Pele Landi, dude was such a boss back in the days.
Sakuraba, Diaz Brothers
It was the mid-90s. I was about 12
My dad was a huge boxing fan and I've boxed since a young age. But watching Bas in Pancrase was the motivation for me to diversify to kickboxing/muay thai. Luckily the gym I boxed in was one of the few (at that time) that was also well-known for having a diverse range of martial arts classes.
My dad didn't understand it at first, but he's come around now
I have not trained but will train (!), and these are fighters who have inspired me:
(pretty much most of the top fighters)
Fedor (if I had to pick just one)
Inspirational female fighters:
I don't train MMA. I train UFC.
Royce, before him I thought you had to be juiced to the gills to win a fight and I have always been the smaller one since im a natural ectomorph. Royce isnt really that slim but he wasnt a juiced juggernaut either. I saw him catch Severn in a triangle and was like what.. whyd that guy tap? LOL
