Coalition Fight Music Releases New Fight Song

 

Coalition Fight Music Releases New Fight Song- Will 2 Live

 
About Coalition Fight Music:
 
The group believes Mixed Martial Arts is more than just performing in the cage; it is a philosophy and a lifestyle. A true fighter is someone who protects others, be it on the warring front as soldiers or on the domestic front as law makers.

 CFM has spent time working with California Against Slavery as well as other Anti-Human Trafficking organizations that concentrate their efforts to end the sexual exploitation of children and other innocents. Supporting efforts have included contributing with performances at demonstrations to raise awareness and encourage participation among citizens and lawmakers as well as the less glamorous, but equally important work including helping with some of the daily grind of disseminating literature and information about the cause.

 

CFM has also worked closely with Team Darius including donating a portion of the proceeds from the song "Darius" to this charitable organization that was built to raise awareness and funding for the study of Periventricular leukomalacia (PVL).

 

The core group currently consists of The Relles and Statecyde, rap artists from Sacramento who have developed their own styles based on their experiences and collaborations throughout the global rap scene. Coalition Fight Music however, is not a single style, they are known to collaborate with other musicians to incorporate and diversify their musical styles. Included among those bands are Beyond the Grove, Nor Cal's rock talent and Sharmera, Boston's newest and most talented alternative rock.

As musicians CFM has taken to heart the approach that that made MMA athletes so successful, maintaining an open mind and always advancing in  progressive and diverse music.

Legal or Not Here They Come

Legal or Not Here They Come

 

Written by Penny Buffington

The Ultimate Fighter Season 12 kicked off its first episode Sept. 15<sup>th</sup> on Spike TV with the first 2 fights being that of the 2 Jefferson County men that made it on the show. The first round of fights determines if the contestant gets to continue. This would allow them to move into the house, become the final cast mates and get the chance to become The Ultimate Fighter. Pretty simple 2 – 5 min rounds in the octagon: You win: you’re in. You lose: you go home.

Winning the Ultimate Fighter could be huge for one of these upstate NY boys, potentially thrusting them into the explosively popular world of the UFC. The winner of the show gets a contract guaranteeing them a stipulated amount of fights with the UFC.  If one of them wins the show, the fights wherever held, will not be in their hometown state. Mixed martial arts competitions are still illegal in the state of New York.  It is legal in all other states except 6 of them.

The first fight was between Marc Stevens and TJ O’Brien. Marc resides in Lorraine NY. He owns Jiu Jitsu Nation located in Watertown. He says he has over 300 students. He has a mixed martial arts record of 12 wins 5 losses.

The coaches on the show are current UFC welterweight title holder Georges St-Pierre and season 1 contestant Josh Koscheck. After the shows finale these 2 will fight for that title on Dec 11<sup>th</sup>. Stevens says, “I actually wrestled for Josh Koscheck at the University of Buffalo. I don’t have an ongoing relationship with him but he does know me a little bit.”

Just before the fight began Josh told UFC President Dana White, “He is an ok wrestler but, we’ll see.”

What we saw was a striker! While referee Steve Mazzagatti watched over in just 13 seconds Marc defeated his opponent with strikes to the face; TKO victory. Happy with his win Marc yells to Josh, “Remember me now?” To which Josh laughs with Dana White and replies, “Yes we do.” He also said, “I think probably a record for the Ultimate Fighter. I don’t think I have ever seen one that quick.”

St Pierre added, “Marc Stevens has got a lot of power. He is a very, very dangerous guy.”

The next match up featured Watertown resident and manager of CNY MMA Gym located in Watertown as well: Spencer Paige and Steve Magedaleno . Spencer has a mixed martial arts record of 7 wins 2 losses.

After an exciting match lasting both rounds the fight ended by unanimous decision Paige being the victor.

Now it’s official both New Yorkers are in contention to be THE Ultimate Fighter. The show airs Wed nights at 10 pm eastern time.

Our Training center provided authenticity to the program as it is the home of many well known top MMA fighters like Forrest Griffin, Evan Dunham, Amir Sadollah, Matt Riddle, Todd Duffee and many others.

Las Vegas, NV (PRWEB) September 7, 2010

This thirteen episode reality TV show goes live on September 25th and features Educational and Instructional programming showcasing sixteen ultimate women dedicated to the sport of Mixed Martial Arts who overcome extraordinary challenges each episode. These ultimate women are immersed in real life challenges surrounding everyday issues that many Americans face, such as obesity, education and literacy, homelessness, foster care, cancer and disabilities. Each physical challenge will reward the winner, or penalize the loser, while imparting educational information on nutrition, fitness, general health and wellness, financial management, and other relevant information. All challenges will be both entertaining and enlightening and will ultimately benefit a charitable cause whose works will be highlighted. The charities will be presented with a donation in the name of the contestant who wins the challenge.

The program is hosted by Joanna Krupa and Amber Nichole.

Joanna was named the World’s Sexiest Swimsuit Model and has been featured on many magazine covers including MAXIM® and PLAYBOY®. She also appeared in Dancing with the Stars®. She is currently a top judge in Poland’s Next Top Model.

Amber Nichole is a former UFC® Octagon Girl. She has had numerous roles as a host as well as an actress in movies, TV shows, commercials and has also been featured in many top magazines. She is a Las Vegas Celebrity and her likeness appears on several billboards in and around Las Vegas and Los Angeles.

“Although we embraced this opportunity on many levels, it was the charitable approach that really resonated with Throwdown” reported David Vautrin, CEO Throwdown Industries. “The series also features The Throwdown Training Center in Las Vegas, its leadership, trainers and Throwdown techniques. Our Training center provided authenticity to the program as it is the home of many well known top MMA fighters like Forrest Griffin, Evan Dunham, Amir Sadollah, Matt Riddle, Todd Duffee and many others. The UWC program is led by Pro-Fighter John Wood. ”John is an incredible mentor, leader and coach who really connects with athletes irrespective of their gender.”

“Throwdown and its team have been paramount in the production of the Ultimate Women’s Challenge," commented Lyle Howry, President of LHP entertainment. “Although we had initially considered filming this production in Hollywood, we determined that for the first season we would utilize one of the nation’s top MMA Training Centers while utilizing Las Vegas as the setting for many of the challenges."

The Throwdown Training Center has been featured on many programs and publications such as Fight Magazine and MMA Business. Many top networks have been by the Throwdown Training Center over the last ten days looking to capture a sneak preview of this impending fall program. The Throwdown Training facility has classes that include many professional fighters as well as MMA enthusiasts, kids programs, women’s self defense classes and also aspiring professional MMA fighter training.

Jon Jones and Vladimir Matyushenko

Jon Jones and Vladimir Matyushenko both
        feeling confident pre fight



39 year old veteran mixed martial arts fighter Vladimir Matyushenko will fight the young fast rising MMA star Jon Jones live on Versus, Aug 1st.  UFC Live, the main event.


Jones is a resident of NY State where mixed martial arts competition is illegal. Good thing for him the fight is slated to take place in San Diego, California. The 23 year old will be going into the fight with a record of 10 wins and 1 loss. Ironically the 1 loss was to another NY mixed martial arts UFC fighter, Matt Hamill.


During the UFC media conference on July 22 Jones told Penny Buffington of MMA2DAY and other members of the press  how he hopes one day mixed martial arts competitions will be legalized in his home state.  “What I do is prepare myself to be respectful at all times. I try to respect everyone and try to show to the everyday person that you run into that yes I am that UFC Fighter guy; but you don’t hear me swearing , you don’t hear me doing crazy things, you will never ever catch me in a bar fight. I try to carry myself like a martial artist and show people this is a beautiful art form; that this is something that we should take pride in. As a UFC fighter we should stand out in a crowd, almost like a monk would or a Knight would or any warrior throughout history. Warriors in history where not punks! They were honorable and respectful men and that is what I try to do and New Yorkers will get the hint that this is a beautiful thing; that it helps high schools, with kids self esteem and everything.”


Both men are feeling confident going into the fight Jon explained, “I’m really big on confidence. I think believing in yourself is very key. I feel as if I should be the underdog in this fight and I just believe in myself that I can beat a guy with a 24 and 4 record. That is a very impressive record. Yeah this guy is not flashy or exciting or dynamic but with 24 wins; you know how to win a fight and I see that.  So I just believe in myself and I’m training to the point where I feel as if I deserve to win. When I’m sitting up there and I’ve experienced it, I want to know I’ve done everything right and I’ve trained hard.  I’ve stuck through it and I’ve just trained to the point where you have got no choice but to be confident.”


Vladimir said, “With any fight you should have confidence or you shouldn’t be fighting that’s for sure but the concern is there always. It’s not nervousness, but you have to be cautious of certain things. You don’t want to do anything stupid in the fight, but there is definitely confidence there.”


Matyushenko will have much more to say during his pre fight interview with MMA2DAY airing the day of the event. Go to PennyJoMMA.com for details.  http://pennyjomma.com/
