A Fighter's Wife: It Is Time...

My hubby was confronted with a last minute fight. He will have weigh-ins tomorrow and he will fight Friday evening. Oh the's not the nerves that get me. It's the moment where he's in the cage facing his opponent and the bell rings for the fight to start...

Up until that's non-stop. The training intensifies. The diet goes into full force. Nothing else exists except the world of mixed martial arts.

I step aside and let him focus. Occasionally, I will give him a hard time about it. But, it wouldn't be fun if I didn't. It only makes my job as a wife and a mother funner. He knows I love him and that it's all in good faith.

Tomorrow should be interesting. I get off from work in the morning and I already have duties to help him prepare for his weigh-in. Sleep doesn't exist in my dictionary. I may get a two hour snooze. The good thing is that I won't have to drive much. As delirious as we will both be. I have to remember to be patient with this process. Besides, it's not like it's our first time.

Here's a list of the fighters who will be fighting:

Isaac Gutierrez vs Brandon Bender 145lb

Jared Papazian vs Kana Hyatt 135lb

Fernando Bettega vs Craig Wilkerson 170lb

Jose Alberto Morales vs Steve Swanson 135lb

Joshua Aveles vs Dion Ramirez

David Mancha vs Ozzy Avalos 175lb

Jack May vs John Potter 265lb

Bobby "The Kid" Sanchez vs Mark Vorgeas 145lb

LaTeef Williams vs Brent Albee 205lb

Tony Dalton vs Diego Bautista

I'm not sure if I mentioned my hubby's blog before. But here it is... He tries to update it as often as he can, but he's always training. Check it out!

A few of our friends will be fighting as well. Joshua Aveles and David Mancha. Good luck to all of you!!
