The “Monson Choke”

Well, after keeping a close tab on your feedback, two rival camps arose. Those in support of a voiceover and those wanting subtitles. All told, the subtitles folks had the edge by about 10 votes. And just as I was about to begin work on putting them into the clip, Coach Kiser made a last minute call to the governor (Mr. Monson himself) who requested the voiceover approach.

A special thanks to our friends at the Ultimate Combat Training Center who made this particular project possible. If you’re a fighter and want a chance to get a chance to be seen on a little larger scale, it’s a great place to fight. The Ultimate Combat Experienes has been seen on various local and cable television stations as well as Knock Out Sports World. If you’re in the Draper area, stop in and check out their brand new facility at

Or give them a call at (801) 967-5295

As Mr. Monson heads up against Daniel Cormier later on tonight in the Strikeforce event, I can’t help but root for the guy. On the outside, our games, outlooks and overall approach to MMA could not be more different, but on the inside, I can definitely appreciate his counter culture mentality and independent approach to life and philosophy. And I have to respect any man that would step on the mat, and share a training session, man to man, eye to eye, simply for the love of the art the way that Jeff Monson does.

With any luck, we’ll see another victem fall prey to the Monson Choke tonight. God Speed Mr. Monson.
