If there is one thing I’m passionate about other than politics…

It’s combat sports.

I’ve been involved in the martial arts for more than 35 years – starting when I was 10 and my mother signed me up for Kempo Karate…

But if I were to be honest, my journey started even earlier than that; when I was five years, I started watching Kung Fu movies and discovered the powerful presence of Bruce Lee.

After phasing away from Karate in my early teens, I naturally gravitated towards a different martial art: wrestling.

It took a while though, as I was too preoccupied with football – but when I got around to it in my senior year, I amassed a 14-5-2 record with 9 pins.

Not bad for a beginner.

After playing football in college, I found myself floundering. Looking for something to do that tested my mind and body…

And I found that test in professional wrestling.

Yes, THAT professional wrestling – the kind you see on TV with the lights, the folding chairs, and the raucous crowds.

While it was fun, the fact that the outcomes of pro-wrestling matches were pre-determined meant that I didn’t get to satisfy my competitive urges…

Until I found the sport of Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu.

How A Hobby Becomes A Passion

Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu started gaining notoriety in the early 90s after famed fighter Royce Gracie won the first two Ultimate Fighting Championships with his unique style of grappling-based attacks.

I had known about the sport before then…

But in the 90s, there weren’t many places that you could learn it.

However, by the mid-2000s, there were more places starting to pop up and, soon enough, I found myself taking classes at one of them…

I was hooked from my very first class.

Fast forward 13 years, and I’ve got multiple championships under my belt (1st degree) including a World Championship win in 2014.

So to say that my life is intertwined with combat sports is an understatement.

I have a lot of friends that actually compete in the UFC these days – and some come to me for technique or advice in my chosen discipline.

So when I heard that Donald Trump was going to be attending the most recent event in New York City, I was practically giddy over the fact that my two passions (conservatism and combat sports) were colliding.

The fact that the POTUS attended shouldn’t have shocked anybody…

He’s attended events before, and he’s been a BIG supporter of the sport and the UFC since the early 2000s. He’s even become good friends with UFC President Dana White.

However…

As happy as I was, I knew that with Trump there – it would cause SOME controversy.

Trump’s Mere Presence TRIGGERS Leftists!!

One of the biggest being the moment he was introduced and walked into the arena.

Now, as I’ve mentioned, I have friends in the UFC, and they were in attendance last Saturday night. When Trump was introduced, he was met with cheers and a few boos…

But according to those I know and trust –the cheers FAR outweighed the boos.

However, if you were to believe Leftist news sources, you’d have thought it was a repeat of the World Series game last week.

It wasn’t…

And there are tweets and videos that corroborate that fact.

Not only that…

You’ve got Leftist hack reporter Brian Stelter, who tweeted, “I’m curious to find out: Who invited Trump to this UFC fight, and why?”

Well, Brian…

Since you’ve asked (and we have no idea why) – the answer is that Donald Trump invited himself to the event to show support to the company, and, more importantly, to his friend Dana White.

If you want to know the WHY…

Listen to this video and maybe you’ll learn something about the man our president is.

Of course, no Leftist site will show this or cover this…

They just want to express their hate.

That’s ok…

The truth is out there – and this video speaks that TRUTH loudly.

 

“Nobody took us seriously. Nobody. Except Donald Trump. Donald was the first guy to recognize the potential we saw in the UFC.” – Dana White
