I returned to the pages of FIGHT! Magazine, the world’s largest mixed martial arts publication, in February with a feature on UFC welterweight Jon Fitch.
Fitch is set to face former UFC Lightweight/Welterweight champion BJ Penn in the main event of UFC 127 in Sydney, Australia. We talked about the importance of the Penn fight, the evolution of his fighting style and misconceptions about style over substance.
I also interviewed AKA jiu-jitsu coach Dave Camarillo who coached Penn in the fighter’s early days at AKA and even co-authored a book on BJJ with him.
Fun story that you can read this month in February’s FIGHT! Magazine.
