Then, he moved to 3-0 in the heavyweight division with a first round TKO over Bobby Gurley at the Intimidation-sponsored Pittsburgh Challenge Series 1 event on in December 2012.

Team Intimidation’s Dan “Dragon” Spohn set to compete at The Ultimate Fighter 19 Finale

After making it to the semifinals in the prospect-driven tournament, Team Intimidation‘s Dan “Dragon” Spohn is set to compete at The Ultimate Fighter 19 Finale. Spohn (8-3) is set to face fellow TUF 19 castmate Patrick Walsh (4-1) in a preliminary bout this weekend in Las Vegas.

Dan Spohn UFCSpohn’s TUF 19 experience has been quite memorable after leading off the season premiere with a devastating 11-second knockout for the fastest knockout in the history of The Ultimate Fighter leading Frankie Edgar to say it was “one of the nastiest knockouts I’ve ever seen in my life.” He followed that with his first fight after getting into the house by defeating Todd Monaghan by unanimous decision to advance in the tournament. Spohn is clearly a favorite to win this season’s “Knockout of the Season” bonus, which fans can vote on by Tweeting UFC president Dana White.

A long-time member of Team Intimidation, Spohn has been a staple of the brand since his early days as a professional Mixed Martial Artist. He recently join an all-star lineup of athletes who have their own signature tee from the Intimidation brand – including UFC Hall of Famer Ken Shamrock, Bellator MMA knockout artist Brian “The Predator” Rogers, UFC female bantamweights Jessamyn Duke and Jessica Eye, UFC lightweight “Relentless” Roger Bowling, UFC vets Jason “Dynamite” Dent, Forrest “The Meat Cleaver” Petz, Wes Sims and Donny “Eagle Eye” Walker and more.

Dan Spohn & Brian Rogers with David McKinneySpohn (8-3) is a native of the Cambridge area and is a 3rd degree black belt in traditional kachido akijitsu. Spohn now makes his home in Columbus and holds victories over UFC veteran Josh Hendricks, John Hawk and current NAAFS Light Heavyweight Champion & now TUF 19 vet Josh Stansbury. Intimidation has sponsored Spohn dating back to his 4th pro fight and throughout his NAAFS title run, his days with Bellator MMA, during his 9-second KO at Bellator 51, and his two most recent professional fights in Columbus, Ohio for the UVC.

Roxanne Modafferi Monthly: Should I go to practice today?

Let’s say you wake up Monday morning feeling great because you rested all day Sunday watching movies or playing Super Mario Brothers on your Nintendo.  You internally shout, “I’m gonna kill it today!”  You go to practice or hit the gym, have a spectacularly good performance, and surpass your goals.  However, you pull your back, badly bruise your shin, tweak your knee, and sleep only three hours because somebody’s dog was barking all night outside your window.  You wake on Tuesday feeling like poop.

Roanne Modafferi MMA“Should I go to practice today?”  You wonder.

Our coaches or trainers sagely cross their arms, nod, and say in a deep, wise voice, “Listen to your body.”

But coach, I can’t hear my body.  It’s too noisy in my head.

“It’s only Tuesday, too soon to take a rest day!”  “Don’t be such a wimp.”  “Am I a weakling?”  “No pain no gain!” “What will the team think of me? They’re tired, too.” “I have to push myself or I’ll never become stronger.” “I  have to go!” “Bobby has a competition coming up, and I have to help him train.” “Today’s class is taught by my favorite teacher and I don’t want to miss it.”  “I have to work out as part of my diet to lose weight.” “I swore I would work off those ten cans of beer I had after training last night.”

Depending on your situation, you can go in to training and ‘go light.’  Only do technique and not sparring in a martial arts class, or do cardio like running or light weight-lifting.  For others, it’s not so easy – if you join the class, you’re expected to go hard.

For me, half the time I decide to go in a push myself, I struggle but make it through okay.  The other half of the time, I injure myself.  It’s literally 50/50 for me. That percentage makes it difficult to know when to stay home or when to go in.However, if you fall into the habit of always staying home if you’re tired, you’ll never push yourself and never get stronger.

roxanne-modafferi_450The key phrase for me is, “We train to get stronger.”  If you have an injury and by training on it it’ll get worse, you should let it heal a little longer and work another body part. Or if you’ve been sleeping two hours every day for the past two weeks, for goodness sakes, stay in bed and get some recovery time.

Mentality plays a roll.  Start to be conscious of your own state of mine.  If you’re positive and looking forward to training, I think it’s less likely you’ll hurt yourself, compared to if you drag your gloomy self to the gym, loathing practice.For some people, though, it’s only the guilt of eating those two sausage pizzas last night that will motivate them to get their butts to the gym.  So if you’re in a bad mood because your whole body hurts, how do you ‘be positive?’

“Listen to your body.”  Easier said than done.Our bodies are always talking to us, but we can’t always hear them, and we can’t tell our mind to shut up.  Our brain has valid points.  Here are some tricks I use to determine how my day will go.

I tell myself, “Okay, let’s get ready to go!” and I start packing up my bag.  As I’m packing or preparing my food or supplements, I fill my mind with every positive thing about my gym, both in imagery and mental words. “I’ll see my coach, tell him a new corny joke and hear him groan, enjoy chatting with my training partner friends, learn new techniques, grab my yummy morning cup of Starbucks on the way to the gym….”

Sometimes, my brain will grudgingly fall into the normal morning pattern, and my body cooperates.  With my body still complaining a bit, I find myself walking out the door mentally prepared.  I’ve just convinced myself that it will be a positive experience and my body WANTS to try to cooperate.  Other times, after I’ve finished packing, my mind finishes it’s positive list, there’s one mentally still moment …and I hear a quiet internal voice say, “….I really need to lay down now.”

I ask it, “Okay, so how about we just go jogging or lift weights? How about it? Yeah yeahyeah? Then you won’t feel so guilty! ”  I imagine myself jogging.  I get up and take a walk around my apartment complex, maybe jog for a block.  If my body says, “Fine, but I hate you,” then I do that.  If I feel resistance in the pit of my stomach, I stay home.  We only do what we can do until we can do more.

One more tactic I try is to put on music that will pump me up.  You’d be surprised how our bodies react to music.  Every time I listen to the Power Rangers theme song, I get rush after rush of adrenaline, and I feel twice as awake, and excited.  That’s because it was my walk out music to when I fought in the UFC.  My body remembers and is conditioned.  Humans try to naturally avoid pain, so it’s up to our minds to will-power us through when our body is resisting us.

Many of us struggle with this choice of “Should I train today or not?” and it’s up to you as an individual to develop a way to hear your body through all your mind’s noise, and the conflicting emotion swirling around.  Identify the thoughts and emotions, address them, and listen hard for that soft voice which is really your body trying to make itself heard.  Sometimes, however, we don’t know if we’ll be okay until we actually start practice.  That’s just the way it is.

When it comes to competition sports, I’d like to quote Ronda Rousey on TUF 18 in saying, “You’re not just training to be the best in the world, you’re training to be the best in the world on your worst day.”

Good luck! Happy training!

Roxanne Modafferi Monthly: Looking back on The Ultimate Fighter 18 experience

The Ultimate Fighter changes people’s lives.

The very premise of the show – going away from your normal life for over a month – causes change and disruption.  We TUF contestants have to prepare by taking time off from, or quitting our jobs entirely.  Leaving one’s family, whether it be parents, significant other, or kids, impacts us personally.  Furthermore, being stuck in a microcosm – a confined world where choices are limited – brings out different parts of people not usually seen, and teaches us a lot about ourselves.

TUF 18 CoachesTUF 18 certainly changed my life, from the day a friend on Twitter said, “Aren’t you going to TUF tryouts? They’re having women” and I said, “WHAT?  Really?  Then, yes.”  I immediately got time off from my boss at my English school in Japan, and dropped a thousand dollars on a plane ticket to Las Vegas.  That will be a year ago come April.

In the TUF house, my perspective on MMA training changed completely.  Eight of the ten years of my professional career had been spent in Japan.  Training styles had changed drastically in the US.  The coaching I received was ridiculously amazing.  I thought, “Ah, so this is what a full-time fighter does.  I can get more sleep and focus on getting better!”

After I got out of the TUF house, I knew I was out of the finals due to my loss, but would I get a chance to fight on the Ultimate Fighter Finale?  My TUF coaches were saying, “Of course you will!” But it wasn’t guaranteed.  But what if?  Could I fight to the best of my ability while holding down a day-job?

I thought, “If there was ever a time to quit my job, leave Japan, and focus fully on my MMA career, it would be now.”  I decided to do it.   And it tore me apart.  My friends, my job, my training partners – they felt like family.  Japan held my heart closely and lovingly, but I knew what had to be done – give up one dream to follow another.

Roxanne with UFC fight cornersI wrenched myself away from Japan and landed in Las Vegas.  I visited the gym “Syndicate MMA.”  After taking coach John Wood’s MMA class, and meeting fellow fighter Heather Clark, I decided “here.”  I have never regretted it.  My heart still aches for Japan every day, but I suppress it.

I speak English every day now, instead of Japanese, although I’m trying to keep it up.  I don’t have a day job, except teaching kids jiu-jitsu classes at Syndicate, and writing for a website mmasucka.com.   My savings account will hold out a while longer.  Unfortunately, I lost my TUF Finale Fight, and the UFC decided not to sign me.  I’m honored to be picked up by Invicta FC instead, and can’t wait to fight for them.

My mom quit her job in Massachusetts to come live with me and support me by splitting the rent (and giving me advice on everything in life, regardless of whether I THINK I know or not). :}  She’s great!  Now if only I can get my dad to call me more….:] I get recognized by fans when I go out to public places.  I got mobbed when I went to UFC 170 and fans asked me to take pictures.  I love it.  I’m honored and thrilled that somebody actually is wants to talk to me, and is in some way moved by my story and actions.

Women's MMA All-Stars at Syndicate MMA in Las VegasIn reality, this is what my heart desires deep inside– to make people smile and happy, and to make friends.

Although, I miss living with other like-minded people in The Ultimate Fighter house, who only want to focus on what they love – MMA.  I miss my morning hugs from my tall buddy (Jessamyn Duke), and I miss being shot by Shayna Baszler’s nerf gun. (Although not at 5 AM when coming back from the bathroom).  I made a lot of friends and connections.  I hang out with Shayna and Jessamyn when they come into Vegas for fights and training.

Out of the men of the house, I mostly keep in touch with Cody Bollinger and his wonderful family.  His wife introduced me to red radishes, which I eat for breakfast every morning now.

Roxanne Modafferi w/ Cody BollingerI asked Cody how TUF changed his life, and what lessons he took away from the experience.  “Even though TUF didn’t go the way I planned it really gave me a positive attitude about my MMA career and where I can take it if I keep working hard,” he said.  “The lesson I learned is, ‘Don’t get too comfortable.’”

TUF also changed the lives of Jessamyn and Shayna.  Shayna had been living in Sioux Falls, working a day job to support herself.  After the show, she quit that and moved in with Ronda Rousey.  Jessamyn had been living in Kentucky, training and working at her fight gym, also teaching Brazilian Jiu-jitsu at a pre-school.  She also moved to California to live with Ronda, and now Shayna, plus TUF coach and fighter Marina Shafir.

“In TUF, for the first time in my life I got to focus completely on the thing that I love, and that’s fighting,” Jessamyn told me.  At home, she trained as a pro would, but had responsibilities to the gym to make call backs, get enrollments, and work at the front desk if a customer came in.

“The experience was so worth it because I got to know what it was like to be what I wanted to be.  That’s why it made it so easy after I got out of the house to change my life. I never really believed in myself enough to do it.”

That’s exactly it.  The Ultimate Fighter showed me what I could become if I dared to make a major change and go after something with all my heart.

> ORDER NOW – Bobby “White Trash BJJ” Emmons signature t-shirt

A purple belt in Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu, Emmons preference is no-Gi. His grappling style is so unorthodox, when people would ask Bobby about the different things he does he would jokingly them it was “White Trash BJJ,” and years later the phrase has just stuck. A professional Mixed Martial Artist competing primarily in the featherweight (145lb) division, Bobby Emmons holds a 3-3 record and was one of Intimidation’s first sponsored fighters in the state of Indiana. A product of Loogootee, IN, Emmons is coming off of a loss to UFC veteran Dustin Neace in the main event at Colosseum Combat XXIV last March. A highly entertaining figure whose brash sense of humor is apparent on Twitter & Facebook, Emmons went on a 3-fight winning streak after dropping his pro debut, and was scheduled to compete on the March 1, 2014 Colosseum Combat MMA card before suffering an injury.
