Coach Tompkins Gets Some Good Ink

Posted: November 29, 2007 by Xtreme Couture MMA in Chris Horodecki, Shawn Tompkins


The London Free Press of Canada did a pair of feature articles today on our fighters. One on Shawn Tompkins and another on Chris Horodecki.

The Free Press compared Horodecki to hockey phenom Sidney Crosby and Tompkins to a preacher.

Both articles are a great read.

This weekend the merger between Xtreme Couture and Team Tompkins will be on display when the IFL airs the opening round of its Grand Prix tournament. Shawn Tompkins took the job of Head Trainer/Gym manager at Xtreme Couture in August. Saturday night Chris Horodecki will be wearing the Xtreme Couture Logo on his shorts along with Jay Hieron and Alex Schoenauer.

Tompkins brought Chris and his other prized students Sam Stout and Mark Hominick into the fold at Xtreme Couture and the three young stars have added to the already impressive stable. All three have incredible kickboxing skills and are true team players, fitting right in with the team first environment at Xtreme Couture.

“I’m thrilled to be here, working alongside and training with Randy Couture, who I hold in the highest regard. It will be an honor cornering with him Saturday night,” says Coach Tompkins. “I’m happy that world will get to see that we are working together. I’m glad to bring my fighters from Canada to create the ultimate fighting system.”
