Here's blog number one, with some background on Jim and his training with Duke Roufus ahead of the title fight:
Part II is live:
Fighting for the Cage Warriors Featherweight title is a big deal to me. My very first fight was for Cage Warriors USA back in 2008 and to fight for the title in the same organization that I started my career is a dream come true. Not only do I get to fight for a title and be the main event, but I also get to travel across the world to do it. Being a part of Cage Warriors has really opened my eyes to the world.
I barely left the state of Florida before I joined the CW roster. Now I have fought in Bahrain and Jordan, and got the chance to visit Lebanon. This fight is in a place I have always wanted to visit Glasgow Scotland. I am very thankful for the opportunity to be able to travel and do what I love. I mean, you can’t ask for a better job than this one. I have always said that if I do not get anything else out of competing in MMA, I hope that I at least get to see the world and now it is a reality.
