 I guess he must be. Congrat's to Leban and to Burton getting a chance to showcase his coaching skills.

I think so. There are pics on facebook of Leben training at Burton's gym and Burton was in his corner at the fight.

I started helping Chris about two years ago, and I have been his head coach for about a year. He is a true martial artist, always looking to improve every aspect of his game and his life. Despite his looks, he is very kind-hearted, and extremely intelligent.

Awesome. I've always had a lot of respect for you as a martial artist  and as a person. Hopefully you can help Chris right to the top.

Yeah, I was pumped to see you in the corner (as was my brother who used to train with you). However, we both thought you better start eating some meat, you're withering away! j/k

When Chris cuts weight, I cut weight to give him moral support. Plus, my shirt was too big and the sun was in my eyes. How are those excuses? :)

LOL....good excuses.

Mike says "hi and all the best". He was training with you a few years back when he was stationed there in the Air Force. He did some help with Barret in preparing for one of his fights. I believe you and your wives even had dinner together on one occasion IIRC.

Yes, how is Mike doing? It was great to have him class- a hard worker who was detail-oriented. Please give him my best.

Hey Bryan,
It was great talking with you after the fight. Will you be there at UFC 125 on Jan. 1st?

I'm overwhelmed with work in Tulsa right now. My next event will be TUF 13 tryouts on Nov. 4 in Vegas, and covering the Super 6 boxing fights Nov. 6 in Vegas right after. I have one of my 170lb fighters trying out, Levi 'The Marine' Avera. He's got a pretty good shot at making it. Is Chris fighting on the NYE card? Phone Post

I was always interested in checking out one of your JKD classes but was too nervous to actually do it. Almost two years later, I think I might actually give it a go! Phone Post

PTM, disappointing, but he is okay.

ToughNoob, you will be surprised at how fun class is. We start everyone very light and then increase intensity only when they are ready and if they want to. Come in and have some fun.

Chris looked very game and ready. His opponent put it well--they were both throwing hard, and either one could have gone down.

Beyond that, Burton, I will be in Honolulu for a conference late March/early April. What is the best way to contact you? It would be proper finally to apologize in person, and (I hope) to get in some good training.
