Mario Sperry: Still Training

Mario Sperry never fought in the UFC, but he is one of the most well respected competitors in the history of MMA. Well into his 40s, without a fight for five years, Mario is still training.



I don't really have much to say about the video. Was just thinking that, as a young guy who started training seriously and competing when I was in high school, that if I get to be Sperry's age and am still engaging in the kind of training that he is, that will be something I can be proud of.

Also, Sperry is supposed to be an incredibly nice guy and an amazing coach. He founded Brazilian Top Team and trained both Nogueira brothers and Ricardo Arona.

I'll probably link to the full video once Stuart makes it available online. The trailer just went up a few days ago, so it may be a little bit.
