Are you reading from a script of some sort? It seems a bit acted out in the way you are speaking.. Just me personally, I prefer these things just spoken freely from your mind.

If i'm wrong, fair enough - that's just how it came across to me.

Good stuff for a first go though. You can only improve.. Just like your podcast has, SIGNIFICANTLY.

Fedor fights I want to see..

Fedor vs. Josh Barnett
Fedor vs. Randy Couture
Fedor vs. Tim Sylvia - DEMOLISHED
Fedor vs. Andrei Arlovski - DEMOLISHED

hmmmmm, i wonder how many become reality..

It wasn't scripted. (if it was, I wouldn't have made mistakes like the whole Paul Taylor/Paul Kelly thing, which I only caught in the editing process)

I'm a little bit uncomfortable in front of the camera.

Like you said, though, it can only get better.

Good job man. I like alot of your reasoning for your picks and it is clear you know what your talking about. I think once you get more comfortable in front of the camera you will get better and better.

Ive picked Bisping in this fight since the begining but I am starting to think exactly what your thinking. I might be a little to stubburn to change my mind tho lol

Yeah, I'm definitely going to have to deal with the nerves. I'll be alright though, I'm sure.

Well, we'll see how the fight goes. The Chris Leben I've been hearing about in training, though, is on a new level, totally above what we've seen before.

I'm very excited for this fight.

Nice video. I can tell it's your first and you're a little uncomfortable.

If you want to get tips on what other people do for UFC video blogs, I think watching this guy might help a bit.

Looking forward to your next video.

"When I hear athletes call themselves warriors, it does bother me a little bit. When I think of a warrior, I think of the Marines I've led in combat, those Marines that sacrificed so much...no showers, little food, no contact with their family, all for their love for their brother Marine and for their love for their country. That's a warrior, willing to lay his life on the line. I've had Marines that have laid their lives on the line for the man next to him, and for their family and country. That's a warrior. The guy who goes into some athletic contest who has no war experience, in my eyes, really has no right to call himself that. That's a coveted thing to call someone, and that's what I call my Marines. Those are warriors." - Brian Stann

nice job, but how can you think Bisping is not that good of a fighter? he has been absolutely flawless at MW and was very good at LHW.

The only way i can see bisping losing is by getting caught with a big shot i.e Rashad style, but i think bisping smart enough not to.

i think Bisping is going to stop him in the 1st or 2nd, and maybe he will the respect he deserves.
