Joseph Duffy Highlights & Finishes by Micks
https://youtu.be/wG5yE-hhDOY Joseph Duffy is one of the brightest rising stars in the sport of mixed martial arts. With a current record of 13 - 1, Duffy set out his stall competing on the British and Irish circuits. Going undefeated in both his amateur and professional careers between 2005 - 2011. Before suffering his first ever loss to Ivan Musardo at Cage Warriors 44, adding to that a broken hand in the process. It was around this time that the man from Donegal decided to step away mma and focus on the sport of boxing. Duffy would again find success, amassing a record of seven wins out of seven bouts. Before deciding to once again return to his first love, mma. On August 16th 2014 he faced Frenchman Damien Lapilus at Cage Warriors 70 in the Helix Dublin. It was just shy of three years since Duffy's last time inside the cage and it was anyone's guess as to how he would perform. But the man from Burtonport didn't disappoint. Stalking Lapilus for the entire fight it went to a third before Duffy took his back and sank in a beautiful rear naked choke. He was back! But being quite the perfectionist, he wasn't ecstatic about his performance and promised his fans to be even better next time around. Three months later and he would be back in action at CW74 and once again facing another Frenchman in Julien Boussuge. Determined to go for the emphatic win, at 0:36 into the first, Duffy landed a shattering knee as Boussuge went to shoot. The Frenchman was out cold before hitting the canvas and Joseph Duffy was the very proud owner of one of the best knockouts seen anywhere in the world that year. Just two fights back into his mma career and the UFC weren't long in signing the finisher. With the huge push taking place, the fighting Irish were making big inroads on the promotions rosters. Duffy seemed an obvious choice to add the ranks and proved himself worthy when he faced Jake Lindsey at UFC 185. Almost instantly you could tell Lindsey was in for a bad night as Duffy peppered "The Librarian" with an array of shots. Just over a minute into round 1 and Duffy landed a head kick which rocked Lindsey. Finishing him off with a combination of head and body punches. Joseph Duffy had now officially landed in the UFC and the mainstream psyche. Here are just some of his highlights to enjoy.

MMA fighter and Jiu Jitsu World Champion Tim Murphy on his Career
https://youtu.be/3o_R6fD0O4w Tim Murphy Breaks Down His Career & What it Takes to Succeed Tim Murphy was one of a handful of competitors who pioneered the sport of mixed martial arts in Ireland, well before it was ever fashionable. Coming from a high level Taekwondo and kickboxing background. He entered into active competition in mma based his knowledge from early UFC's and DVD box sets. Seems a far cry from the almost unlimited facilities and hands on experience which is available to today's burgeoning athletes. We sat down with Tim to talk to him about the sports beginnings in Ireland. His multiple titles in both European and World Jiu Jitsu competition. As well as his thoughts on what it takes to be the very best you can be. On the mma scene when he started I suppose when we started the pool of fighters was tiny. There was me in Limerick, there’s a few of the guys up here at Point blank. before I ever came to Point blank, there was a few of those guys. There’s a few guys from the north and there was SBG and Dave Jones and a few of those guys in Dublin. That was pretty much it, the number of clubs was tiny. So you go to one show in Dublin say and I’d be matched up against one guy and someone else would be matched up against another guy. And we would go to the next show and it’s the same four people there like you know, so we would just switch around who we were fighting. So I fought a Mickey Young on one show and then the next show I’d be fighting Greg Loughran. Then the next show I might be back to fighting Mickey Young again, that type of thing you know. So yeah it’s it an incredible difference in the space of 10 or 11 years. On what he’s been doing since he stopped competing in mma. So I haven’t competed in mma since I took over Point blank, whenever that was, 2011 I think maybe. I’m not really sure now but it seems a long time ago when Mark Leonard moved up to Donegal. So after that it’s very difficult to be a coach and be a competitor at the same time. And trying to compete in mma is pretty much impossible unless you go away to train for a month or whatever before a fight. So then I started competing internationally. I’d train with Fergal Quinlan, he’s as jiu jitsu black belt in limerick. He’s a good friend of mine, so I would go training with those guys quite regularly. And he encouraged me to start competing in jiu jitsu competitions internationally. So it became a little past time for us over the last few years. So in 2013 I won a gold medal at the European nogi championships and another gold medal at the world nogi championships, that was at purple belt. Then last year I was competing, I got promoted to brow belt. So last year I was competing at brown belt and I took silver and the Europeans and silver at the world’s as well as a few other ones in between. I traveled to Copenhagen, France, Rome. Been all over the place really. On what it takes to be a Champion I don’t think there’s any one simple thing. The biggest thing, there’s a few things. The biggest thing I think is do you actually love what you’re doing? Because some people think they do, but then they don’t really want a train that much. The only want to train maybe a few times a week, they won’t do any more. Where is you see guys and it’s always guys that excel, they’re training all the time because they want to be. So a week after a fight, they’re down training you know. Because that’s what they do for fun like. And it’s not just when I’m getting ready for a fight, I’m going to train a lot more. You will ramp it up, but the guys that really excel seem to be the ones that will be back training the next week again. The usual thing for me after most of my mma fights, I’d be back training probably on the Monday. Now obviously taking the intensity down and going back to having a bit of fun in training. You often see that with guys, when the competitions over whether it’s jiu jitsu or mma. When the competition is over, the next week, that’s the best week to train because you can do without any pressure and you can have fun. Start trying techniques again. You don’t have to worry about getting ready for something. And you see guys that have that type of attitude, tend to be the ones that excel. And then some people, I do know if that’s developed or not, but some people have a different work ethic to others, you know. Maybe that is what it comes down to, just love what they’re doing more.

They offer a combination of Yoga, Aikido, Brazilian Jiu Jitsu, Striking and MMA classes to suit all comers. With something for all ages and genders.

Currently the home of Akuma Fighting Championships Amateur Welterweight Champion Keith McCabe. Team Balance has created a club where athletes who want to take their sport to the next level.

BJJ Black Belt Jorge Santos on Ireland & JiuJitsu Lifestyle
http://youtu.be/OGjt3GxI5Kg BJJ Black belt Jorge Santos lives in Dublin Ireland and runs the Atos affiliated Jorge Santos JiuJitsu. Originally from Brazil he moved to the Emerald Isle in order to make a better life for himself. Now many years on he is able to look back and reflect on what got him to this point along his journey. We spoke with him about his past life in Brazil. How he enjoys Ireland and how living the JiuJitsu lifestyle can give you self confidence. What other sports did you do before BJJ. Did you always see yourself doing BJJ or was it soccer first? No skateboarding, I did skateboarding for 10 years. Then I finish skateboarding, when I hurt my ankle. Then after that I stopped for a while and I looked for something. Then I found BJJ. I think I was 14, 15 years old and I started looking for UFC, Royce Gracie and he’s kicking some butts. Then I wanted to do this martial art. Then I looked for something but it is was very expensive in Brazil. This was in 96, 95 and it’s very expensive… for playboy’s. When I started to work make some money I was 20. Then I started in the gym, then I start BJJ. And is Brazil still quite a segregated country between rich and poor? It’s changing a bit, now it’s more easy. To do martial arts in Brazil, BJJ MMA, it’s easier. Have many Associations they help. Many black belts do charity, then help young people, poor people to get off the streets to get off the drugs and stuff to do some martial arts, BJJ. If you weren’t doing jujitsu now, where do you think you would be in your life. How has it changed you as a person? So before when I started to do jujitsu, I was just doing it for fun not to live jujitsu. You know, it was nice to see the guys kick some butts. And then I started to enjoy, when I got my blue belt I started to do the class. My master allowed me to do some classes at my place. Then I started to enjoy, and I saw I had a future here. I can do more than this. Then I started to compete. I started my first competition out of Brazil in 2007, in the long beach California. So then I see it’s not just Brazil, there is a lot more. Then I went back from the competition, I didn’t do well because it was my first big tournament, Worlds. It was an amazing experience. So I went back to Brazil and I started to think I have to learn English. In Brazil it’s very hard and very expensive to learn English. So I forgot about it, but I kept doing the classes. Then when I got my brown belt I had a friend would move to Dublin, to Ireland. And he invited me to come to Ireland. Jorge when you get your black belt, you come to Ireland because here they don’t have black belts. Have one Irish black belt and one Brazilian black belt. So you will have a good opportunity to grow here. You make your life here, you live jujitsu style and you know. You can do everything here. Then when I got my black belt I sold my car, I got some money from the job, from my friends from my family, they help me. And then booked my flights and come to Ireland. I came to Ireland and started doing my classes. So you are enjoying your time in Ireland, is this where you’re going to spend the rest of your time? Yes, I really enjoy living here. OK, some people complain about the weather. But you can make some money here, you can spend your winter time here. I do my things here to my class. Then in the summertime I can fly to Spain, to many warm countries. But for me I like it here, I love Ireland.. I’m going to stay here for, I hope so, all of my life. The rest of my life you know. Because now I have my second family here. I have my students, I make many friends you know. I’ve changed lives here, for sure I’ve changed lives. Many people now have confidence. Like today one guy arrived, he is like 54, he’s old. I asked him why in jujitsu, why martial arts, why did you choose that, what’s your goal? You know what Jorge I want more confidence, self-confidence. And I told him, OK I’m going to help. So for sure this guy is going to come back and I’m going to help him in his life. Going to make a strong person you know. Not just for going to the street to fight. Some people think, I’m a fighter I go to the street and fight. But most people who do martial arts don’t fight on the street. That’s it, yeah. I’m going to stay here for my life, all my life. Music by: Phaeleh - Afterglow (feat.

MMA Fighter Keith McCabe Interview on How MMA Changed His Life
https://youtu.be/srWv9lLk62E Keith McCabe is widely known as one of the most active mixed martial artists in Ireland. Currently the Akuma Fighting Championship amateur welterweight Champion. We wanted to talk with Keith about his frenetic fighting schedule. Training for just 3 years, Keith has managed to amass a total of 15 fights. Following a year off after receiving a strange spinal injury which he suffered during a game while playing for one of the top GAA clubs in the country. Keith decided to take up Muay Thai before he finally discovered the sport of Mixed Martial Arts. Now just 22, he discussed what first drew him to the sport and the positive effects it has had on his life. Before he took up mma, his story is probably representative of alot of young people's experience in the modern world. Keith's story is one of positivity as he shows what you can achieve when you find what you love to do. His story should be one of inspiration for any up and coming fighters who are looking to forge their own path and be successful in what they want to achieve. Now focusing on turning pro later in 2015. Keith is looking to expand his striking skills, by also making his pro debut in kickboxing this year. With a number of standup bouts lined up between now and his next fight inside the cage. We will be watching his journey to the pro ranks with great interest as his career progresses.

Dominick talks about the mental aspect of fighting and how showing his other side after the fight, showing he can accept his loss and embrace it, without making excuses.

Rampage Jackson vs Wanderlei Silva Pride 28 Agony & Ectasy - Crazy Knockout Backstage Fallout
As mma knockouts go, "The Axe Murderer" Wanderlei Silva over Quinton Jackson "Rampage" was right up there as one of the most devastating in all mma, or even all combat sports. Pride Fighting Championships 28 High Octane took place way back in 2004. In a fight which many pundits thought Silva should win. In a tightly fought first round, it wasn't until round 2 in which Silva unleashed his Muay Thai Clinch which put jackson in all kinds of trouble. Unable to break free from the grip, Rampage succumbed to a devastating knee to the jaw which knocked him unconscioous and left him lying face down over the lower ring rope. At the time he looked like he had been killed. But the damage was just temporary and Jackson lived to fight another day! Here we see the backstage before and after the fight. How both fighters were preparing and what took place once the fight was over. The agony and ectasy of the fight life.

Conor McGregor vs Floyd Mayweather, Rickson Gracie Didn't Watch It
BJJ legend Rickson Gracie talks about the difference between the sport of Mixed Martial Arts today. And how it used to be back in his days. Now, in much the same way as BJJ. Fighters are trying to play it safe once they know they have the fight won when ahead on points. Now things are more about simply winning, rather than the honour aspect of the fight. Now he believes it has become more about entertainment than the moral aspect of the fight itself. When asked about the Conor McGregor vs Floyd Mayweather Rickson fight. Rickson isn’t at all interested and didn’t even watch the fight. It’s great for Mayweather, great for McGregor. Great for the UF, but terrible for the sport and terrible for the audience. He believes that nobody wins in that fight except for the guys that made a load of money. Rickson says that he doesn’t mind too much that it has become about the entertainment aspect. But that he himself just cannot relate to it. But they aren’t trying to see who is the best fighter out there. They are just trying to bring great entertainment circus and that’s what it is. Which Fighter is Rickson a Fan of Nowadays? Currently, Rickson is a fan of Demian Maia because he brings the Jiu Jitsu. He fights with the goal to be the best guy out there regardless. What he does in the first round is what he does in the last round. Get in there and try and submit a guy as quickly as possible. But Rickson says that he does feel the rules now in MMA diminish the chances for the grapplers. Chael and co host end up chatting about a famous fight on the beach in Rio. Where Rickson and Hugo Duarte who had opposing gyms, met up to settle their dispute. The pair basically fights it out in front of the entire beach and the guys from their gyms. In what became a famous incident in the BJJ world.

Not saying it's premeditated and Alex plays up to it or nothing. Wouldn't like to imply anything about this elite level fighter. Shout out to Felice Herrig.

MMA fighter Ayo Daly on turning pro, EFC & future plans
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=j6QR-tkyrXA Just a few short weeks ago Ayo Daly was still fighting amateur mma. Since that time alot has happened, a hell of alot. Having his first two professional fights in quick succession. The Team Ryano fighter has been on what you might call a hectic start to his pro career, Undefeated as an amateur, Daly took his second fight at short notice to fight at EFC 38 to face their former welterweight champion. We spoke to him about that and alot more. Gaining some insight into the changes he has experienced since moving up to the pro ranks. On Fighting at EFC To be honest with you I kinda have to give props to Lucan and to Tony kinda really you know. We have had our differences with me leaving but, he sent me to aftercare with Henry (Henry Fadipe) when he fought Van Staden in September 2013. So I got to see the show, see how it was ran, and relationships with Graham and ?? the president and the matchmaker. All the guys working there, they have a fantastic rule over there. Then I went back with him again in December when he fought Michiel Opperman and had that massive knockout. So doing those two shows and seeing how big it was over there. I was kinda like, yeah man I want to fight for these guys. Obviously when I joined here and there was talk of going pro at some point. Cage warriors was supposed to happen on new years of last year and that fell through. I’m just kinda sitting there I was depressed, Iike what’s going on? I’m going to keep fighting amateur my whole career. There’s no fights to be had unless I go international. So I talked to Andy and I’d talk to Chris Dale whose over in America, he looks after all the contracts in Celtic fighter management. He looks after me and a few of the lads here. I basically said to him there’s EFC, there’s graham’s number. Contact him I’ve good relationship with them. Let them know I’m ready to fight whenever costs, I’ll be there…… On Turning Professional I think probably the small gloves were a bit of a shock to me. I’ve trained and them before, I’ve used to six ounce 4 ounces, doesn’t seem like much. But when I was warming up for Lithuania, Redser said it to me, there’s a big difference between the small gloves and a little six oz ounce ones. You can hit for the shot in there you going to feel it. So, I was thinking to myself I think he’s great plenty of shots before by the guys in here. In Lithuania, I didn’t really get hit with too many shots. There was one shot at the end of the first round, that just grazed the top of my head. It was sore afterwards, and it wasn’t a shot that rocked me. It felt like a knife had just caught the top of my head. I was like, fuck’n hell, Redser was right, the small gloves really do make a big difference. So I’d say that is what really changed things. And the transition from the 3 minutes to the fight minute rounds hasn’t been that big. But it’s more the calmness, I’m looking for that calmness. The calmness that I have in training and when I’m sparring in here. I’m trying to generate that and transition that to a pro fight. Because you have a lot more time to work, it’s not all go go go. Which it felt like that in amateur, rushing to get takedowns, rushing to get submissions. You have to take your time a little bit more in pro. I just haven’t got that experience yet and it will come with time. In five fights, 10 fights, hopefully I’ll be a veteran at that stage and have a good few wins behind me. But it’s that composure that I just haven’t got yet. And I’m going to keep on chasing it until I do.

MMA vs Wing Chun Kung Fu - One Martial Art to Rule All
And so the debate continues as Xu Xiaodong travels across Asia to test his mixed martial arts against what we would call the traditional martial arts. In this fight he came face to face with Wing Chun Kung Fu master Ding Hao, who he summarily beats with relative ease. The point of these fights has been to show that the combination of martial arts over any preset traditions. Allows the fighter to best adapt to any given fight situation. Thereby allowing them to defeat their opponent who competes under a very specific set of rules of engagement. And so with this traditional martial arts vs mma. We see how realworld fighting situations result in every instance to date that MMA is the superior form of combat. MMA of course was brought to the mainstream by the UFC, or The Ultimate Fighting Championships. Today the sport has mushroomed into the fastest growing combat sport in the world. And that is mainly down to the extensive brand building the UFC undertook over the last 20 years. So let's follow the exploits of Xu Xiaodong and see how his quest to prove MMA is simply the best progresses.

Robert Whittaker Can Beat Yoel Romero Says Frank Mir
Robert Whittaker Can Beat Yoel Romero Says Frank Mir The former UFC Heavyweight Champion Frank Mir breaks down this weekend's middleweight matchup. Between wrestling phenom Yoel Romero and Robert Whittaker. Frank admits from the get-go that he’s somewhat biased toward Romero, as his own dad came from Cuba! But Frank goes on to say that if he were to design a guy who could beat Yoel. It would be a fighter like Whittaker. Romero’s game, first and foremost wrestling, Olympic calibre wrestling. It something he relies on a lot and it gets him out of all kinds of trouble in his fights. That and of course unbelievable explosiveness. That ability to end a fight at any time if he catches you with punch or knee. But Mir believes that Whittaker has the antidote and that with his distance and great striking he can get the win. Another interesting fact the guys elude to is Whittaker’s wrestling takedown defence, the highest in the division. So many variables, but Rob is a fast starter. While Romero has a tendency to come on in the later rounds. Such a well matched Middleweight fight for the UFC Interim belt on the line.

UFC World Tour Aldo vs McGregor Behind the Scenes Dublin
https://youtu.be/nfn8HI5-4q0 Tuesday 31 March 2015 and the UFC World Tour Aldo vs McGregor lands in Dublin Ireland on the final stage of a massive whirlwind journey. Which in less than two weeks has seen their party cross three continents. In what can only be described as an unprecedented promotional push by the Ultimate Fighting Championships. The roller coaster ride which was part of the promotional push for their July 11th title fight at UFC 189 has seen all manner of goings on. With the two beginning their interaction in Rio De Janeiro with Jose Aldo giving McGregor the finger in front of his home fans to get things off to a raucous start. Then followed a series of major stop offs across North America and Canada which at one point saw them being joined by welterweight Champion Robbie Lawler and challenger Rory MacDonald. Throughout each stage of the UFC World Tour the two have squared off many times with different results. The vocal McGregor facing the stoic Aldo, always with UFC President Dana White in the middle. Across the pond and on to London where Jose Aldo watched Brazil beat Chile at the Emirates stadium. While Conor McGregor watched Republic of Ireland taking on Poland at the Aviva. Before finally moving on to Dublin and their final head to head before the bout in July. Prior to the fans entering the Convention centre Dublin. Local and International media had the opportunity to question both fighters at length. Something they both have had to endure repeatedly for the duration of the tour. We took the time to take in the media day itself from behind the scenes to give the fans a flavour of what goes on before they get to see the fighters in front of the camera. Lets just say things are alot more subdued when both men are not in front of the big crowd and under the big lights. With UFC president Dana White nowhere to be seen. The next time we see these two warriors go face to face it will be for featherweight gold in Las Vegas.

Conor McGregor Open Workout "Floyd's Got a Problem" Chael Sonnen
Chael Sonnen is one man who is never short of a few words. He has already publicly said that he believes Floyd Mayweather will win the upcoming boxing match against UFC Champion Conor, when the two fighters meet on August 26th. However, speaking as an analyst Chael gave his thoughts after watching the open workouts of both men. Having been working for ESPN for the McGregor workout. Sonnen had a somewhat slightly different tune when talking about The Notorious One. While he still believes that McGregor will lose the fight.he says that in the open workout he looked awesome. Now while Floyd usually uses his pre fight open workouts to hype the fight and chat to the media. McGregor was using his session to show the public how he looks. Chael isn’t too sure how much he was exposing in terms of what will happen on fight night. But Chael believes that the people who have been saying Conor will give Floyd problems because of the strange angles from which he throws punches, they’re right. Sonnen thinks that Team Mayweather will have sat down and looked at the footage. And he thinks that Floyd will be thinking. That is not the way the 49 men I have previously beaten throw a hook. Now, will this be enough to swing the fight in Conor’s favour? Chael doesn’t think so. Sonnen talks about how he first heard about Conor McGregor from Kenny Florian. Florian who is known for his fight IQ mentioned McGregor’s awkward angles. And movement which he hadn’t seen from other fighters. He then had the same interaction with Michael Bisping. Where Bisping also echoed Florian and talked up the odd angles and striking ability of the Irishman. It wasn’t until some time afterwards that Chael too began to see what exactly both men were talking about. And now after watching the open workout, he thinks that, “Floyd’s Got a Problem.” It’s this strange kinda movement which led to someone like Lyoto Machida winning a World title. If you had an opportunity to see him before or train with him. Then perhaps a fighter could have run straight through him. But it’s the not knowing which creates that initial problem. And Floyd won’t have an opportunity to work McGregor out pre fight. He only gets on shot!

Michael Bisping Fires back at Funny Yoel Romero Tirade
Here is the reigning undisputed UFC middleweight Champion Michael Bisping, firing back at his old foe Yoel Romero. Who's has been recording himself swanning around his home country of Cuba. Threatening to come find Bisping and hurt him either inside or outside of the cage. However, the other main focus of the videos has been for Yoel to desecrate the British flag. All of this following the incident at UFC 213, where The Count tore up a Cuban flag he found cage side. Right in front of the former Olymipc wrestler turned MMA fighter. Something that seems to have set Romero off the deep end. As he now campaigns to get a fight with the current 185lb Champion. Who as it happens is set to defend his title against the new Interim champion Robert Whittaker as he returns from his major knee surgery. With no definitive date set for his match with Whittaker. It's anyone's guess what exactly Yoel is playing at with his callouts. We know nothing can come of it, bar Whittaker slipping on a banana peel and tossing his Interim title belt into the waiting hands of Romero in the process. We might have to wait and see how things develop. But in the meantime, it has to be said that it is all very entertaining. Just so long as it stays that way. And doesn't develop into something more outside of the cage. Long may it continue.
