In just two days Jay Hieron will lock horns with Jake Ellenberger making his return to the UFC for the first time in seven years.
Hieron last fought Jonathan Goulet in October 2005 when he lost to TKO due to cut.  This bloodied UFC mat has been on permanent display inside Xtreme Couture MMA right when you walk in.

Jay Hieron in 2006 gave Jake Ellenberger his first professional loss a broke Jake’s 12 fight unbeaten win streak.  Jake Ellenberger is no stranger to Xtreme Couture MMA facility either, he has trained here with the pro team, he has learned nutrition advise from XCAP and Randy Couture, he has fought two other of our pro team members, beating Mike Pyle and losing to Martin Kampmann where Jay Hieron corned Martin.

Jay Hieron has had a great team helping him prepare for perhaps his biggest fight, biggest rematch of his career and of course the pressure of  performing great in his UFC return.

UFC & MMA FANS CAN NOW MEET THE LEGEND IN LAS VEGAS AT THE OFFICIAL BOOK SIGNINGS DECEMBER 30TH & 31ST

UFC hall of famer RANDY COUTURE, who has just returned home from a book launch tour in Europe, New York and St Louis, will be officially launching his new book THE LAST ROUND in his hometown of Las Vegas on December 30th and 31st. Couture has been filming in Bulgaria the sequel to THE EXPENDABLES with A-Class Hollywood stars such as Sylvester Stallone, Jason Statham and Bruce Willis. After hanging up his gloves earlier this year, “The Natural” has not slowed down with offers coming in from the movie industry and spending time with other business ventures such as launching his new supplements range XCAPS.

THE LAST ROUND hit the book stores this month and Couture will be signing his book at two locations in Las Vegas. This is a rare opportunity to personally meet a legend and a Hollywood actor who played a pivotal role in bringing the sport of MMA into the mainstream which is now embraced by the media and mainstream public alike. Fans should turn up to the following locations:

DATE & TIME: Friday 30 December from 12 pm to 2 pm

LOCATION: At the Gun Store, 2900 E Tropicana Ave  Las Vegas, NV 89121,

DATE & TIME: Saturday 31st December from 12 pm to 2 pm

LOCATION: At the Xtreme Couture Gym, 4055 West Sunset, Las Vegas, NV 89118

UFC welterweight Martin Kampmann training out of Xtreme Couture MMA  has a vitally important fight with Rick Story coming up this weekend at UFC 139. Kampmann has dropped two bouts in a row and a third loss would be a setback in his quest for a title shot.


Kampmann stated: “With the Diego fight I made mistakes, but I still beat him up. His face  was a wreck afterwards and he still has the scars to prove it. I  definitely believe I won that fight and I got the better of him. I would  love to avenge any one of those two losses because I think I’m the  better fighter and I can beat any of those guys.”

Then he states he lost the Shields fight because he made a lot of mistakes, but Martin also has this to say:

“For the most part wrestlers take people down and lay on them. That is  how I lost to Jake Shields. I was kneeing Jake in the face and in the  body. I had a solid submission attempt with a choke. He landed one punch  on me in that entire fight and he didn’t once try to submit me. He won  the fight by getting on top of me and humping my leg. I think the  current scoring system favors wrestlers too much. You can punch a guy  ten times in the face, but if he takes you down and cuddles with you,  they give the round to that guy. It is what it is.”

Pretty candid from Kampmann there, which continues throughout other topics in the interview. He talks about his upcoming fight with Story in more measured terms:

“I’d love to make it a more technical striking match, but I don’t think  that is what he is going to do. I think he is going to want to come in  close. I think that is his strength; he’s a strong dude who wants to  come in swinging. He might get clipped, but when he’s in the pocket like  that he’s dangerous. From a distance though I will be able to pick him  apart.”

“He tries to take his opponents to the ground a lot. He is a wrestler by  nature. I’m sure he is going to try and take the fight to the ground,  but I’m prepared for that. I’m totally ready to counter or stuff the  takedown. If it does go to the ground I’m very confident in my Jiu-jitsu  skills too.”

But he turnes the heat back up when talking about Nick Diaz and the whole Diaz/Condit/GSP saga:

“I personally think Carlos Condit got screwed. Nick Diaz has been pretty  good at hyping himself up. To be honest, I don’t think Diaz is that  good. Anytime he has fought any good wrestlers he has had problems. I  think he’s going to lose badly to GSP. Diaz is good at running his mouth  and doing his thing…you know…being a punk. I would love to fight Nick  Diaz sooner than later. I would absolutely love to fight him somewhere  down the line.”

He may originally hail from Sacramento, California, but for all intents and purposes, featherweight contender Tyson Griffin might as well be considered a Las Vegan, considering that it’s been his base of operations at Xtreme Couture MMA  for much of his five year career in the UFC. And as such, Griffin is looking forward to contributing even more to his adopted hometown.

“I wanted to do something more for the community and something that hit home was Boys Town Nevada and the work they do with families and kids without families,” said Griffin, who is preparing for a UFC 137 bout against Bart Palaszewski. “I wanted to find a way to give back, and me and my manager (Tom Call) came up with a fundraiser / raffle for my next fight. For $25, you can buy a raffle ticket and possibly win tickets to UFC 137 and get after party passes, and all the money is gonna go to Boys Town Nevada.”

Based in Las Vegas, Boys Town Nevada has positively impacted the lives of 20,000 children and families each year since launching in 1991 through a variety of programs to help those in need. For the 27-year old Griffin, the plight of the children in the Boys Town programs is one he is all too familiar with.

“Growing up, my mom and my dad were locked up, and we got sent through foster care a little bit and then to my grandma eventually,” he said. “I was in those kids’ shoes at one point and I could have been there longer, so I really like what they do. To be honest, I was too young to actually remember, so I can’t speak on being there firsthand (in a foster home). But being there only with my grandma and having to go visit my mom in jail and not knowing dad growing up and things like that, I realized that I still came out ahead and a lot of those kids may just need a little bit of support. And there are families there too that just need help in being a better family, and to me, that’s what stood out and what I think is lacking in today’s society – just better, closer families working together.”

And while this is the first time Griffin is doing a fundraiser like this, he’s no stranger to talking to young people, including those at Boys Town Nevada about his struggles coming up and how he overcame them. His story is an inspiring one, and he isn’t shy about sharing it.

“Everyone comes from different walks of life, everyone’s gonna have challenges, and it’s up to you to make the most of it and embrace it,” said Griffin, who is coming off a June win over Manny Gamburyan. “Don’t be scared of who you are and where you come from. I’m sure a lot of kids are embarrassed by their situation, but everyone has their own things to deal with. We’re all different, no one’s perfect, and no one’s ‘normal,’ as they say. This is life, so you’ve got to deal with it as it comes.”

The Xtreme Couture G.I. Foundation, a 501 (c) 3 non-profit corporation, was founded by Randy Couture to honor the veterans of America’s Armed Forces. The foundation was especially formed to raise money and awareness for those wounded in action and their families. To date, more than 24,000 U.S. troops have been wounded in the war against terrorism, which doesn’t include the many more suffering the mental effects.

Many of the injuries are traumatic amputations, gunshot wounds, burns and blast injuries that will retire these brave men and woman from the armed forces. Even though some of these men and woman are severely injured, they have the courage, strength and determination to win this battle.

The Xtreme Couture G.I. Foundation’s goal is to help these brave men and women fulfill any of their unmet needs as they return back to civilian life.
