Tyler McGuire “People Underestimate My Stand Up”

Tyler McGuire “People Underestimate My Stand Up”

One Fighting Championship is looking to fill a spot after Welterweight Champ, Ben Askren, vacated his title with a move to the UFC. With after only one fight at One FC, Tyler McGuire has caught the eye of the organization. McGuire will have the biggest fight of his career to date as he takes on Zebatian Kadestam on Saturday’s One FC : Warrior’s Dream.

Tyler McGuire signed his first contract with One Championship last May and proved he belonged amongst the top fighters at One FC. And As One FC brought Mcguire up from the local scene, they didn’t usher him in with an easy fight into the organization. In McGuire’s first fight with One FC, he faced a tough veteran with over 70 fights under his belt. Luis Santos, 65-11, was a true test for Tyler McGuire. Tyler never backed down from Santos, pushing the pace the entire fight. McGuire ultimately won the exchange, staying undefeated, and getting the decision win.

When I found out I was Fighting Santos, this was one of the top guys in the roster, they were probably seeing if I was ready for a Title shot. Because they picked that fight right off the bat and seeing where I was at.

Tyler McGuire’s next opponent, Zebatian Kadestam, is a tough standup fighter. Fighting out of Pancrase MMA Gym located in Sweden, Zebatian currently sits with a 10-4 record. Out of Zebatian’s 10 wins, eight of those finishes were by KO or TKO. Zebatian will surely be looking to add another KO to his record against McGuire.

McGuire says he isn’t afraid to keep the fight standing up. Even with over half of his wins coming from submission, Tyler McGuire says people only see half the picture. As we saw when he fought Santos at his One FC debut, Tyler isn’t afraid to keep the pressure on. One of the things he mentioned about his gym, Sikjitsu, is there are no easy days. Everyday you put in 100%.

Most people don’t know this, but People underestimate my Standup game. We train hard everyday at the gym, no easy days. I’ll follow the fight wherever it goes, whether it stays up or goes down onto the ground.

Tyler looks to be coming into One FC at a big time with lots going on within the promotion. The spotlight turned on One FC with a first of it’s kind trade that brought in “Mighty Mouse” Demetrious Johnson. Then there was the announcement of Eddie Alvarez signing with One FC instead of re-signing back to the UFC. Tyler thinks One Championship is a great fit for him. Not having to dramatize his character like Conor McGregor or a Colby Covington, to get a Title shot.

I like what One represents. I haven’t had to pull a Colby Covington, you just shut up and fight. And now, here I am.

Once the cage closes this Saturday, everyone will get to see the amount of work Tyler McGuire has put into this camp to face Zebatian Kadestam. All the sweat and blood that has lead up to this point, and watch it play out. We’ll get to see if Tyler Mcguire can bring Sikjitsu’s first World Title back home to Washington.

Conquest Of The Cage Presented by ExciteFight – November 9th 2018

Conquest Of The Cage presented by ExciteFight was held at the beautiful Northern Quest Resort & Casino in Airway Heights Washington on November 9th.  

This was my first time covering Conquest Of The Cage presented by ExciteFight and it did not disappoint.  I arrived about an hour before the doors opened to the public and got to catch Mike “Maverick” Chiesa and Tyler McGuire rolling in the cage warming up.  I had the chance to see DJ Jackson who recently moved to the area from Houston Texas spending time in the cage visualizing the win.  Co-Main Event fighter Adam Clark also spent time empty cage picturing the win and it paid off for both fighters on the night! 

The fights started shortly after 7pm and Bart the ring announcer fired up the crowd with his awesome gladiator kickoff speech which I have heard at other events but never get tired of hearing! Cary Ross got the crowd even more excited as his belted out the National Anthem.  Seriously if you need someone to see the National Anthem, you need to reach out to Cary!  That guy is AMAZING! 

Doing LIVE results I like be as prepared as I can to post results as they happen, but this night was a little tough as the majority of the fights ended in the 1st round and not just late in the first round, but under the one minute marker!  No complaining here, the fighters on the night were all warriors that are braver than 99% of the almost sold out crowd! 

The Main Event of the night featured a pair of Spokane Washington fighters in Marcos “El Toro” Lopez against a very game Taz Bebout who decided at the age of 48 that he wanted to be a professional fighter! Some great action to start this Main Event fight but “El Toro” was able to secure the submission just a couple of minutes in. 

FINAL RESULT – Marcos “El Toro” Lopez wins via submission in the 1st round

The Co-Main Event of the night featured a pair of Heavyweights in hometown Adam Clark V.S. Hunter Orgill from Riverside Oregon.  I didn’t get the exact stoppage time, but this fight didn’t go 30 seconds.  Clark came out looking crisp with shots and ultimately getting the TKO in the first round.

FINAL RESULT – Adam Clark wins via TKO in the 1st round

The full results are listed below:

Main Event – Marcos “El Toro” Lopez defeats Taz Bebout via submission in the 1st round

Co-Main Event – Adam Clark defeats Hunter Orgill via TKO in the 1st round

Daniel Gadley defeats Joe Mendoza via arm triangle in the 1st round

Joey Pierotti defeats Chris Ensley via TKO in the 1st round

Shay Sherman and Sunnie Reyes get the draw after 2 round in a strange unknown ending to the fight

Arturo Barajas defeats Isiah Warner via decision in an Amateur Title bout

Leo Beltran defeats Oscar Roa via TKO in the 1st round

Brady Hiestand defeats Jesse Jacobson via TKO in the 1st round

DJ Jackson defeats Aimas Jack via TKO in the 1st round

Daunte Wilkie was not on my fight card so I believe this was a last minute fight but Daunte won his fight via submission in the 1st round

Aliso Sanchez (sp?) defeats Thad Murray via TKO in the 1st round

Michael Barrett defeats Roman Stump via Split Decision

How to Shape Your Beard – Reuzel Product Review

I grew up in the era of grunge music, skateboarding, and smoking pot was life.  I never thought I would ever own a comb or a brush or even use a hair dryer!  Flash forward 20 years and I now own a couple of brushes and use a hair dryer on a daily basis, but not for the hair on top of my head.  I use a comb and hair dryer on my beard every day! 

I have natural curly hair and it appears that also applies to facial hair because I have pretty curly beard hair too.  A barber that I went to used Reuzel Beard Balm on my beard at the end.  I had never heard of it before, but like the way it smelled and looked.  I went home and my wife REALLY liked it too! I immediately went straight to Amazon and placed my order and you can too HERE

I like how my beard looks with the Reuzel Beard Balm and I also like my beard to be a little stiff so it holds in place throughout the day.  I highly recommend you picking up this product HERE

I wash my beard everyday which may or may not work for you, but it works for me.  I like the Beardilizer Beard Wash and Conditioning Shampoo which you can buy from Amazon HERE or from Beardilizer directly HERE

I also ordered the Reuzel Green Pomade for my hair which I don’t style that often, but when I do, I wanted it to look good too.  Another great product by Reuzel that has a great hold and lasts throughout the day without being the shiny over hair gel guy look!  You can order yours HERE
