Mark “The Hyena” Beecher Stops by Lovato’s OKC to Teach Muay Thai

Muay Thai

Mark makes his return to Lovato’s BJJ & MMA after traveling the world to train Muay Thai.

Kru Beecher has spent many years training, fighting, and teaching others the art of Muay Thai.  Kru is the equivalent of a black belt in Muay Thai and it is extremely prestigious.  In more recent years, he has been training MMA fighters, such as former UFC light heavy weight champion Forrest Griffin, how to be devastating strikers.  We were able to host Kru Beecher in Oklahoma City for a few days so our students could learn from one of the most sought after coaches in the world.  It was amazing experience to learn from such a knowledgeable competitor/coach!

Samir Chantre asks for Justin Rader at Metamoris 3 | 30 Day Free Trial | Oklahoma City Metamoris

Samir Chantre asks for Justin Rader at Metamoris 3

Metamoris

Everyone knows how awesome it is to compete on a Metamoris card and our own Justin Rader could get the chance!

In an interview with BJJ Addict Radio last night, black belt Samir Chantre, respectfully, mentioned that he would like to meet Justin Rader at the next Metamoris.  Samir closed out the light feather division with Caio Terra at the No-Gi Worlds in 2010, the same year Justin Rader won his No-Gi World Championship.  The next two years, 2011 and 2012, Samir met Rader at featherweight and was defeated 2-0 both times.  Samir said there are many people he would like to face but he would really like to have that last match back.  He told BJJ Addict Radio that he has watched that match many times and has been focused on fixing his mistakes.  This could be a great opportunity for both competitors to get their foot in the door with Metamoris!  Rader is a black belt No-Gi World Champion and two time ADCC veteran, Metamoris could very well be the next step for him.  This is guaranteed to be an awesome match that the fans will love.  Make it happen!

UFC 166 in October Looks Show Off All That Mixed Martial Arts Has to Offer | 30 Day Free Trial | Oklahoma City Mixed Martial Arts

UFC 166 in October Looks Show Off All That Mixed Martial Arts Has to Offer

Mixed Martial Arts

It’s a few months away, but UFC 166 looks to be a great night of fights that could transcend expectations.  However, some of our team will not be able to watch since it will be in Houston on October 19th while they are competing in the ADCC in Beijing!  As top competitors we truly love watching mixed martial arts.

Dos Santos will face Velasquez for the third time inside the octagon to settle the score.  In case you didn’t know, Dos Santos won the first match by knockout, while Velasquez won a unanimous decision the second time.  Dos Santos will need to be on his toes in order to come out on top after being dominated by Velasquez in their last match.  The co-main even will be a match between undefeated Daniel Cormier and Roy “Big Country” Nelson.  This match has a very high probability of steal the show.  Nelson is a great grappler and has knockout power in his hands, but can he overcome an elite wrestler like Cormier, who also has amazing knockout power?  Nelson has won many submission wrestling tournaments but Cormier has been to the Olympics, he was at the top of his sport.  If you’re a mixed martial arts fan, you won’t want to miss this card!  For more info about the card and the fighters check out GraciMag or the UFC’s website.

Big congratulations to our affiliates, the Adamson brothers, who teach at BJJ Seaside in Oregon.  They were promoted to black belt over the weekend and are taking the next step in their BJJ journey.

BJJ is an experience that lasts a lifetime.  It has been said that the real BJJ journey doesn’t begin until a person reaches black belt.  The Adamson brothers are now embarking on the real journey that will last for the rest of their lives.  These guys have definitely earned this coveted rank through ability to teach others while competing, and winning, all over the world.  They run a very successful school and take students to all the tournaments.  They also do well while competing at many of the big tournaments; Pan Ams, Worlds, Asian Open, Rome Open, European No-Gi, and Lisbon Open just to name a few.  They are certainly among the best Americans and have a bright future as black belts!
