Dr. John Fitzgerald provides nutritional advice to our professional fighters that train at Xtreme Couture here in Las Vegas.  He is an expert in his field and teaches other doctors how to utilize nutritional supplements in their practices.  He answers questions and provides useful information whenever he is counseling our athletes.

We thought everyone would benefit from the information he provides, so we asked him to start making videos of some important topics he talks about.  Here is the first in a series of videos. The first video he taped is about how to test if your body is sensitive to foods you are eating.  If you are sensitive to the food, it can cause slow exercise recovery, and can slow the rate of fat loss if you are on a diet. Another common symptom is skin problems.

The questions about Jay Hieron’s future finally have been answered.

After spinning his wheels in Strikeforce and never getting a title shot that always seemed within arm’s reach, the UFC veteran and former IFL champion has joined Bellator Fighting Championships.

He’s one of eight competitors who compete in the upcoming season-four welterweight tournament, which commences in early 2011.

Other confirmed participants include Dan Hornbuckle, Rick Hawn, Steve Carl, Chris Lozano, Jim Wallhead and Brent Weedman. The winner of the 12-week tournament gets a shot at current Bellator welterweight champ Ben Askren.

“It’s just a great fit for me,” stated Hieron, who hasn’t fought since January. “At this point in my career, I want to stay as active as possible, and the tournament format allows me to do that. It’s a great organization, and it’s just the perfect fit.”

Hieron (19-4 MMA, 0-0 BFC) enters Bellator with a seven-fight win streak and nine wins in his past 10 fights. Most recently, he scored decision wins over Strikeforce fighters Jesse Taylor and Joe Riggs, but the former state high-school wrestling champion and JUCO national champ never was booked for the highly anticipated title fight with champion Nick Diaz.

“Jay Hieron is a fantastic signing for us at 170 pounds,” Bellator Chairman and CEO Bjorn Rebney stated. “Jay is a world-class fighter with serious talent. I can’t wait to see him back on national television competing against other top fighters where he belongs. He is a spectacular addition to our upcoming season-four welterweight tournament.”

The New Yorker currently lives in Las Vegas and trains with Xtreme Couture.

A fight years in the making, two of MMA’s biggest icons, Randy Couture and Fedor Emilianenko finally go toe to toe inside the cage, as they face each other in a game of EA’s MMA.

Even with XCAP Supplements branded on Randy’s fight shorts, it was no help in the virtual game world.

The game is released across America today, and Friday in Europe. Couture and Fedor feature on the cover of the game.

 

The 12th installment of the Strikeforce Challengers prospects series is set for Nov. 19, Strikeforce spokesman Mike Afromowitz today confirmed with MMAjunkie.com (www.mmajunkie.com).

The event features fast-rising lightweight Justin Wilcox (9-3 MMA, 3-1 SF) against Vitor “Shaolin” Ribeiro (20-4 MMA, 0-1 SF) and the return of lightweight Ryan Couture (1-0 MMA, 1-0 SF).

The Showtime-televised event takes place at the Jackson Convention Complex in Jackson, Miss.

Wilcox looks for his fourth consecutive win in Strikeforce and his fifth straight win overall. Since a loss to Mitsuhiro Ishida in his 2008 promotional debut, the American Kickboxing Academy fighter has defeated David Douglas, Daisuke Nakamura and Shamar Bailey under the Strikeforce banner.

He could take a big step toward title contention with a win over Ribeiro, a Shooto and DREAM vet who signed with Strikeforce back in 2009. After a near-yearlong wait, he made his promotional debut in May at “Strikeforce St. Louis: Heavy Artillery” and dropped a close split decision to undefeated Lyle Beerbohm.

Although he began his career with a stellar 19-1 mark, the Brazilian jiu-jitsu black belt has dropped three of his past four fights (with additional losses to notables Gesias Calvancante and Shinya Aoki).

Couture, the son of UFC Hall of Famer Randy Couture, signed with Strikeforce earlier this year and made his promotional debut with a slick first-round submission of Lucas Stark at Strikeforce Challengers 10.

An old matchup becomes new again, but this time a UFC title is on the line.

As was previously expected, UFC lightweight champion Frankie Edgar (13-1 MMA, 8-1 UFC) will defend his title against undefeated challenger Gray Maynard (10-0 MMA, 8-0 UFC) at UFC 125.

While not officially announced by the organization, UFC 125 is expected to take place Jan. 1 at the MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas and air on pay-per-view.

MMAjunkie.com (www.mmajunkie.com) confirmed that verbal agreements are in place for the contest, which was first reported by MMAFighting.com.

Edgar and Maynard, of course, met once before, and it was the current challenger who came out on top. It was Maynard who handed Edgar his lone career defeat in an April 2008 bout at UFC Fight Night 13.

However, Edgar bounced back with a pair of decision wins over Hermes Franca and Sean Sherk, as well as a submission win over Matt Veach, and was awarded a title shot against then-champion B.J. Penn.

Despite seemingly insurmountable odds against him, Edgar defeated Penn in a hotly contested UFC 112 decision. In August, Edgar solidified the legitimacy of his title by again defeating Penn, though it came in even more dominating fashion the second time around.

Meanwhile, Maynard followed up his win over Edgar with a five-straight decision victories over a murderers’ row of opponents in Rich Clementi, Jim Miller, Roger Huerta, Nate Diaz and Kenny Florian. Despite the wins, Maynard was passed over in favor of Edgar for the first shot at the belt.

Additionally, MMAjunkie.com has learned that with the Edgar-Maynard booking, a middleweight title fight between champion Anderson Silva and challenger Vitor Belfort will likely take place at the UFC’s annual Super Bowl card.

UFC officials had targeted the matchup for Jan. 1, but the champion reportedly asked for the delay in order to fully heal the aching ribs that affected him in the days leading up to his now-legendary UFC 117 contest with Chael Sonnen.

A rare glimpse into the warm-up and preparation with one of the all time best MMA fighters in the World – Randy “The Natural” Couture.   The video is raw footage shot by Xtreme Couture in his locker room. Helping Randy were corner men Gil Martinez (Striking)  and  Neil Melanson (Grappling).

Randy took on fellow Hall of Fame fighter Mark “The Hammer” Coleman and won by submission by Rear-Naked Choke early in the second round at UFC 109.

A big part of Randy’s success, other than his great training partners at Xtreme Couture, is due to his supplement line XCAP and the job our blood doc John Fitzgerald has done with diet and XCAP’s supplements to keep Randy’s body at the top performing level fight after fight.
