So ...this happened today. I’m struggling to find the words. I’ve been trying to make a comeback for almost 6 years now. I’ve come close a few times. But I kept having difficulty with my knee. There’s not much to be down with a grade 3 lesion on a meniscus besides stem cell therapy. I didn’t have $30,000 so I did the best that I could, but I still always came up short. And then this happens today. I’m still in shock. Thank you @joerogan. See you soon Dr. Riordan! 🙏🏽🙏🏽❤️#besthumanever #dreamsdocometrue #speechless #secondchance #blessed #grateful #letsgochamp

Lookit my facial expression. I’m like FAAAWK crap!! I’m struggling, pushing down what I know to make room for what’s new. These aren’t my go to reactions to punches. The first clip is from today. @alan_guapo is teaching me boxing defense. In 20 yrs this is the first time I’m being taught these techniques. Surprising, I know. The second video is Dec 7th, 2013. 2 days before my last fight. Before my knee blew out which would forever change my life. I’m ripped, I’m in shape, and I look biomechanically and technically worse there than I do now. My legs are stiff, I don’t sit down on my punches nor do I move my head. I don’t even look connected to the ground. And I won 8 world titles like this. No wonder I was never satisfied. To start to become the fighter I always wanted to be it cost me 3 knee surgeries and the loss of everything I had and who I thought I was. At this time I’m a bit dumpy, and I’m still not fully recovered from my last knee injury but with @precisionsportsmedicine and @drcsp28 help I’m well on my way to fighting again. And this time around in addition to what I already do well, I’ll have headmovement, great defense, solid footwork and boxing. Plus, I won’t be a striker afraid to go to the ground. I look forward to swimming in deep waters. #thesharkiscoming #deepwater #letsgo #expansion #growth #recovery #champion #fighter #fighterlife #muaythaigirls #muaythai #mma #phoenixrising #letsgochamp

We all have “the one that got away.” Here’s mine. December 7th, 2013, Invicta FC 7. I fought for the inaugural bantamweight world title. I didn’t win. This is the one and only belt I didn’t bring home. #theonethatgotaway #illneverforgetyou #heartache #invictafc7 #worldtitlefight #photoshoot #fighter #fighterlife #fightergirls #muaythaigirls #muaythai #mma #mmafighter #champion

#transformationtuesday For anyone out there feeling like they can’t, here you go. It happens to champs too. -40lbs 2015 and 2018 side by side. Lost it at the age of 41/42 AND after 3 knee surgeries. Don’t let people tell you you can’t. I’m living proof that you can. Truth be told, as soon as people start talking that mindset to me that conversation is DONE. If you know someone on that journey who needs to see this right now, tag them in the comments. #believeinyourself #yougotthis #selflove #selfcare #bewhoyouneed #phoenixrising #letsgochamp

🥳🥳🥳 #2019 #readysetgo #hideyolegs #heelhooksforlife #Repost @cavemikebjj with @get_repost ・・・ This class will be for all levels, but will be challenging. The purpose of this class is to build a large No-Gi team who excel in not only IBJJF but Sub Only rulesets. We will start every class with wrestling drills for warm-ups followed by technique (Including Leg Locks) until 7:45 when we will begin situational sparring. The key to success in this program will be consistency, get up, get your drills in, go to work, and you should still have plenty left in the tank for evening training. You will only be exhausted and sore if you choose to roll extra rounds at 8am. All @ralphgracie members are invited! @ralphgracieberkeley @ralphgraciesac @ralphgraciemountainview @ralphgraciewalnutcreek If you work in SF, come through! #ralphgraciejiujitsu #ralphgraciesf #RGNOGI

#flashback Friday. 2016 and 2018. 40lbs difference. I wish the first video was clearer. I WAS HUGE. I can see my belly jiggling. I look as though I could’ve been pregnant. I’m so happy I’m not that big anymore. The weight made everything more difficult. I didn’t feel like myself. A lot of the time I couldn’t remember who I was, a fighter and survivor, a champion. All I was was shame. I’m glad I went through that. I learned so much about people, and even more about myself. In that darkness and pain I found myself. And I came to know I was enough. #selflove #youareenough #youarenotalone #youalwayshaveyou #thesecretingredient #letsgochamp #phoenixrising #heartbrokenwideopen

Working out the kinks with @alan_guapo. It’s a slow uncomfortable grind. But nowhere near as bad as it used to be. So I’m happy. And feeling, for a rare moment, satisfaction. 😌😌 Although, my eyes are so beat up that it looks like I’m having an onset of pink eye. (FROM BEING PUNCHED IN THE EYES. I DO NOT HAVE PINK EYE. I just woke up and read the comments jeeeez people!!!😂😂) I’m lucky I made the drive home. Time to #levelup my head movement. 😄😄 #boxerish #onedayatatime #letsgochamp #phoenixrising #thecomeback

Look at this incredible moment. @shiftcombatsystems cares so much about his students. I met the both of them at one of my seminars. #moved #goals #proudtoknowyou 🙏🏽❤️ “This is it. This is why I coach. These are the moments. Helping people have experiences that teach them about themselves. Show them how strong they actually are, how fierce they can be, how calm they can be when everything around them is chaotic, how people will still love and support them even when things get rough. My goal is to create champions in and out of the ring. They are courageous and have learned to face fear head on. You better believe they are better people because of martial arts. This is @jblankey after a smoker at @levelupboxing. There was no winner declared, but that night John proved to himself that he could do far more than he previously believed he could. That night he learned to set his goals higher. He learned to go boldly towards what he wants. These are the moments.” #muaythai #martialarts #moments #strength #emotion #heart #coach #experience #sports #combat #support #motivation #champion #courage #fighting #goals #nakmuay

August 2013. This nice lady cracked my ribs and gave me a concussion. To this day she is one of my favorite opponents. The depth of her heart was tremendous. She poured it out onto the canvas. I was the one that came away with the belt, but I think she was the real winner. She let it all go. Here’s to @aleidelawant, from one Champion to another. #waybackwednesday #wbc #titledefense #worldchampion #heartofachampion

I like heel hooks. And I like @sh_enmaku . @cavemikebjj is aaaaight. 😛😄😄 #meh #Repost @cavemikebjj #rgsf #ralphgraciesf with @get_repost ・・・ Some clips of 8x Muay Thai World Champion, The Queen of Mean, @miriamnakamoto from her recent appearance on the @joerogan podcast. From Miriam's new obsession with Leglocks, to the change in attitude from the bjj community (Due to the influence of @danaherjohn @eddie_wolverine @garrytonon @craigjonesbjj and more), and the difference between heelhooks and kimuras. The final clip is of Miriam working a fairly complex leg lock series only 20-30 minutes after being introduced to the leg lock game. #queenofmean #joeroganexperience #leglocker #footlockfire #ufc #ralphgraciejiujitsu #csa #bjjhottakes #fearthereaper #journeyupwards

Today I had my first MMA rounds in ages @guerrillajjpleasanton with @grandmasboymma @toorawshaw @nickkruse @cyhanson209. It was terrifying, even with great partners, even with extensive care and compassion. Rebuilding trust and faith in myself and my body is not light work. But I guess it’s time because there I was. Thank you gentleman. And best of luck to @nickkruse fighting next week in Taipei. #wakeup #surrender #grateful #phoenixrising #letsgochamp #heartbrokenwideopen

First time Muay Thai sparring in a very long time. From the first round to last, remembering who I am and what I know became clearer and clearer. 5 wks since surgery we decided to test the waters and it went pretty well. Maybe I still do belong here. #encouraged #grateful #moved #saturplay #muaythaiislife #phoenixrising #letsgochamp #wannaseemefight @risecombatsportssf @risecombatsportstucson @johnhoop

Friday was surgery number 4. It’s a minor meniscus repair. Supposedly I’ll be good in 2 weeks. We’ll see about that. I will say that this has been the lowest impact yet. Least amount of pain. Least amount of depression. Usually I’m buried in tears, wine and junk food by now. This time I’m already visualizing rehab and watching training vids on the way in (yes I know watching leglock vids on your way to knee surgery is fucked up. I’m obsessed alright?) I hope that this is the last time. That I can close this chapter in my life called The Injury And The Lesson In Letting Go. The last obstacle before I get to fight again. To the people who reached out, thank you so much. It was greatly appreciated. 🙏🏽♥️👊🏽 #grateful #hope #letsgochamp #wannaseemefight #phoenixrising #heartbrokenwideopen #fearlesslyvulnerable
