***Official*** MMA Forum All Access Interview... Week 6... Swpthleg

[OFFICIAL] MMAF All Access Thread



- Week 6 -
(Swpthleg interviewed by SpoKen)

Hey everybody! I'm here with week 6 of MMAF All Access. This weeks interviewee is without a doubt one of the smartest members here! I'd feel comfortable asking her for help with college homework.. wait.. her? There is no women on the internet! Is there? And surely there is no women who is a moderator on a forum about mixed martial arts.. can there be? It's time for the world to learn all there is to know about...

swpthleg



Ok Swpthleg (SweepTheLeg for the behind who haven't figured it out), you know what's coming! Tell me why you love Rashad Evans? You don’t have the option of hating/disliking/not caring about him either.

I love him because he went to my school, Michigan State, and is a Spartan and therefore badass, apart from anything else badass he does. And he showed that even champs can forget to keep their hands up and get KTFOd, which makes me feel a little better regarding my own experiences in the ring.

Finally, a legit answer, I want more like these peoples. what made you become a fan of MMA?

Watching the first season of TUF, I asked my TKD sabunim at the time what that type of fighting was. His answer only intrigued me more. I have said that my TKD school also trained boxing and Olympic rules TKD sparring, which is full contact and no pitterpat whatsoever. Therefore it was of special interest to me, and I wanted to learn more, and have spent the last 5 years doing so.

Do you have a favorite fighter or fighters?

Bien sur. Look at my sig and avy.

Why GSP of all the fighters out there? ...like Rashad Evans.

His incredible versatility, his iron discipline, and his unbelievable determination. His work ethic is an inspiration every time I step into the gym or dojo. He continues to evolve with the sport and has a boundless passion for what he does.

Watching him gather and unleash brute force with his customary grace and fluidity of motion has made for some of the most jaw-dropping moments in the UFC.

The accent doesn't hurt, either. Oh Georges, you WEARING that UA!!

Who's your favorite non-UFC fighter? Boxer? Kickboxer?

My favorite boxer is Ela Nunez. She is from the town where I currently live, Jamestown NY, and handed Alicia Ashley (my other favorite boxer) more than one loss. She is also an Empire State Games silver medalist.

OMG, I better say Charlie Z, so he doesn't hunt me down and shank me.

My favorite kickboxer.....JCVD. Duh. Seriously, my favorite kickboxer has to be Remy, b/c he had the stones to train with CC, or Michael McDonald.

JCVD is my favorite, have you seen bloodsport! That was real right? He'd kick Remy's ASS! Which style of Martial Arts do you like seeing most?

Muay Thai. Also GSP Kyokushin stylings; I hold out hope that I might see them again one day. I also enjoy anything involving angry Bas and/or pancrase boots.

What was the first MMA fight you saw? If you can remember.

I don't remember the fighters, but it was one of the early rounds on TUF 1, and I was so amazed by what they were doing, I was turning my head sideways and practically upside down so I could see where the biomechanical shiz of the ground fighting was happening. I also thought it was kind of cool how it was just judges, team members, a doctor or two, a ring girl, and that was about it. It seemed like it would make for better focus.

Favorite kung fu movie?

Kill Bill. Only the Pai Mei bits, though.

If I may just say this.. Bud was the best character in the Kill Bill movies. He was the only character to completely dominate the bride start to finish. The only reason he died is because he was betrayed!! Anyways.. do you have an all time favorite fight or fights?

When GSP and BJ fought to the death.

Forrest's pummeling of Tito after he lost to Silva.

Randy busts his hand beating GG.

GSP switch kicks Hughes in da 'ead. You couldn't hear it but Hughes went arrrrggghhhh.

Any and all Pride Wandy, Big Nog or CC carnage.

So, favorite fight featuring women?

Gina v Cyborg. Although I hated seeing my girl Gina get beat (she did well though IMO, even though she made some mistakes, ie not capitalizing a couple times when she could have), it made it crystal clear that the bar had been raised. The accompanying and continuing discussion of Cyborg's pumpitude only heightens the profile of women's MMA, I think. I really really hope she isn't juicing, because it would suck if she and Evangelista couldn't make little Cyborgs due to roid damage.

Also, if any of you come across the name Shawna Brown, she is my frequent training partner and she is 2-0 in her amateur MMA record. Both wins have been by TKO.

Aight Swp, let's delve into your personal life for a peek. What is your name?

My husband called me Ace long before either of us had any idea who Rich Franklin was. My real name is Sophia. Those of you who know me on FB know my super awesome Welsh last name.

Heh, I know And I also love your dog, it's beautiful! How did you discover this forum?

Google, and running very very fast away from Sherdog after one brief viewing.

Mr. Spoken, could I say one more thing about this question please? I lurked for awhile here and was pleased with the helpful, friendly and knowledgeable responses to my n00b questions. The training/nutrition forum is by far the best one I've ever encountered, while I'm answering this question.

Really? They did that for you? It's because your a women.. the things they did to me.. uhhhhh have you ever knocked anyone out? (Or beat someone down really badly)

Not outside the gym or dojo. Yet.

How about inside the Dojo beatdowns?

I'm not a fan of karate point sparring, which my dojo, being a competition school, places a fair amount of emphasis on. Having said that, I do it because it helps me cut the ring, helps my speed, and helps me stay light on my feet and heavy-handed.

I have surprised many, many people at that gym. They are not used to people who box because they rely so heavily on the blitz. Nor do they expect someone much shorter than them to kick them in the chest or head.

I can pass guard fairly easily on guys who are much bigger than me, but to be fair, they are clumsy, uncoordinated, and my little bony fists do far more damage than it looks like they would. They do NOT like getting caught with a fist, because they don't like knowing that their hands suck.

From the stories I've heard, I'd hate to fight you. What is the coolest feature an Moderator has?

I could tell everyone, but then I'd have to kill them.

Avoiding future mass murders, lets move on. What do you do for a living?

I am a substitute teacher. I don't get called steadily enough however, so I am still looking, and I have an interview at a large local optometry practice this week. I have never passed on any fight related information to the kids, because I'm not qualified, even when they come to me and tell me how much they love John Cena. One of these times I should go in, ignore the lesson plan and discuss the genius of Joe Silva, Eddie Bravo and Crazy Horse. My degree is in English, and in my former job as a paralegal I worked a lot with lengthy pleadings, so I can wax eloquent on paper or in person for as long as I need to.

That explains the lack of typos 100% of the time. For a while, I thought you were a robot. No lie. If you only had 24 hours to live what would you do?

Be with my family. Tell my two daughters how much I love them and how much joy they have brought to my life. I would then have to have a knock or two of extremely high end vodka and have some quality time with my lord and master. If I had time, I would beat the tar out of my neighbor. I would call a few of my friends and tell them to get their head out of their ass and try to salvage the epic fail that is their life. I would call my parents and brother and let them know how much I love them, and how much it hurts that they are so far away.

I was depressed until you said you'd take time out of your day to beat your neighbor down, that's golden! Okay, last but not least, are you a mac or a PC?

Now that's just mean!!!


Your a mac...

If anyone has any other questions, I encourage you to ask.

I'm sure you'll get ripped for having a MAC!!!!!!! But I do appreciate you taking time out of your busy schedule and troll slaying to answer the questions that's been on everyones minds. And since you are a girl.. what will Michael Carson do to you? I don't think he pitches to the opposite team, ya know? You two can discuss that later, and while you guys discuss that, everyone else will be thanking, congratulating, and +repping you for the awesome interview.

After reading that, and finding Swp has a Welsh last name. The lub has doubled.
