JOSH, CLAY AND SOME OF THE OTHER GUYS (AND GIRL) CAME OVER TO NOG'S AND ROLLED LAST NIGHT. THERE IS A WEALTH OF KNOWLEDGE AND TALENT WITHIN ACA AND THE ONES WHO WILL LOSE IN THE LONG RUN ARE THE MANAGEMENT AT XPC. THE ACA GUYS HAVE ALWAYS HAD AN OPEN DOOR POLICY WITH US WHEN WE HAVE GUYS GETTING READY FOR FIGHTS, AND WE RETURN THE FAVOR WHENEVER WE CAN. WE HAVE HAD MANY VISITORS FROM OTHER GYMS INSIDE AND OUTSIDE OKLAHOMA, AND FOR THE MOST PART ALL OF THEM HAVE BEEN PRETTY COOL. BUT SOMETIMES VISITORS ACT LIKE THEY DON'T WANNA TRY NEW THINGS OR THEY PUT ON A TOUGH GUY PERSONA AND MAKE EXCUSES IF THEY GET BEAT. THE ACA GUYS HAVE ALWAYS BEEN OPEN MINDED ABOUT LEARNING AND EVEN TAKE THE TIME TO HELP OUT OUR GUYS WHEN THEY COME IN.

I HOPE THINGS PAN OUT FOR THEM.

 Tom staying with XPC is a bigger development IMO. He has always been ACA to the core

I believe Tom is staying with ACA, he's just going to continue to be a paid instructor at XPC as well if what I'm hearing is correct.

AnthonySullivan -  Kenny only wanted Shane around so he could call his school a "Jake Shields associated training center". 

Is there any more FB hilarity being posted?   It's kind of sad that Kenny is such a piece of crap that not even his wife or kid likes him.  That's got to be a miserable existence.  Even Hitler had people who liked him.
He never even promoted or pushed this... Shane did all the work and The gym never advertised it.
Not even before the Shields/St. Frog fight which would have brought some positive attention towards the gym. Considering at the time they were THE ONLY Shields affiliate school in the country, you would have thought that was a nice feather in their hat. But NADA... Piss poor management if your assets.

 I heard you guys calling! Man, you have all covered everything. Where should I start? LOL! I feel for the ACA guys but I did see all of this coming from the time of my departure in May '07.

My departure was in a large part due to the fact that I wanted the ticket sellers to get paid more money. And I wanted to keep control of the ringgirls and matchmaking. But, Kenny felt as though he had someone that could do it better? That was a lie. 

AJ is correct, they have fallen apart since my departure. They have not had a show that has made money since I left. They cannot even sell enough tickets on their amateur shows. WTF?!

People that do not know shit about fighting should do one of 2 things: 1) take the time to learn the business and the people involved in it, or 2) STAY THE FUCK OUT!

MasteyBateOrand - kennys wife on his facebook page


LaDonna Nair
I just want you to know you are the most pathetic excuse for a man. Not only are you not a "business man" but you are not a man either. And to all the sluts at Hooters he's broke.


kennys son on josh bryants facebook page

Tyler Nair They got to you too huh....if you build it...they'll take the credit and your job lol. On to the next one Joshua you're a superstar haha. Much love brudda

Tyler Nair Jason..... You are all knowing! He's lucky he's my dad....my dad that talks shit on me to the girls In his gym cause he's jealous??...maybe my mom was right...maybe he isn't my dad haha


this guy must rilly is a lousy basturd, or a deu....doos.....ducsh.....dooshbag!!
I have always maintained contact with LaDonna, she and I are friends. She has known since May of '07 that Kenny is a fuck up and an idiot. They have lost money month-after-month and show-after-show. She will not have FCF when this is all over, I doubt if she even wantrs to be apart of anything with such a soiled reputation. NDN Promotions, that is totally different. Will she have it? She always has. NDN can rebuild with ease, just will need some representation by legitimate people, not some scumbag, punkass, yoneg gay pornstar/drug dealer/home invader that invades the wrong home, Justina Brown. And definitely not some 
representation from a cocaine snorting yoneg, that does not have an athletc bone is his body, nor a business sense, when it comes to the fight business.

The Nair "boys", Tyler, Conner, and John-o, they are like my boys. I would die for them, and regardless of what the relationship is like between their post-operative transgender father and myself, I will always be here for them for support and/or advice.

Every child needs a man in their life, I am that man for them. Kenny has tried and failed, he just needs to realize that he never will be a father, a daddy, or a man. So he might as well close the doors on that failed opportunity to, just like he has the others.

You cant file BK on that shit and you cannot get that time back, you wanna be man. If you wanna feel a real man, call me, I will let you touch my nuts and dream. You will have wet dreams, FAGGOTT!

Urban Tulsa-Stunpals

Participation in the Scottish Games is open to everyone, unless you fall well under the weight limit for the lighter weight (190 pounds).

In that case, there's always whiskey tasting.

"Anybody can go sign up for it," said Bryant. "You taste a bunch of good whiskeys and get a little drunk at the same time. It's really good. It's all from Scotland."

Well then, sign me up. "I would say it is a great gathering of people," he said.

Visit okscotfest.com for more information.

Bryant said he feels like he should've jumped into Scottish Games competition with both feet, but hesitated. "I got the feeling that things might go this way and I should have jumped when I had the first feeling because I would have a place already," said Bryant.

He was recently fired from a local gym.

Bryant's notoriety from the local MMA scene and his higher-profile from the Ultimate Fighter reality series should have worked to the gym's advantage, and by all accounts it did.

"July 1 we started keeping track of people who joined the gym, we were getting commissions," he said. "One out of every four people that signed up to the gym, I brought in. That's a fact. The computer said that, not me."

He was fired for not bringing people in. This is a learning module for two reasons.

For starters, if you want to train with Bryant, follow him online by liking his Facebook page, and follow his next move. He said he'll be back.

Additionally, mixed martial arts is on the verge of a national break-out. The Ultimate Fighting Championship signed a long-term agreement with Fox Sports. Advertising has I'm sure you have seen the advertising during football and baseball games already.

Let this serve as a warning. You, a family member or a neighbor might decide to give this MMA training a whirl.

Just like buying a car or a new pair of jeans, try it out first. Check around and do your due diligence. You would be surprised how many fly-by-night training centers pop-up on the corner offering lessons. Not all are highly accredited.

Bryant's ACA fight team is still going strong. While they search for a new gym, they have been rolling at Team Nogueira's gym in south Tulsa.

"That's a really upstanding thing to do," said Bryant of Team Nog's welcoming attitude. "But you know I never burned any bridges nor has my team, ACA ... We've been very professional with every other team, every other gym. We've cross-trained. We've stayed relevant. I can't say the same for the (old) gym itself."

Oss.

MMA is not something the masses are going to pay for. That's why DAC markets Karate and Piet markets his gym as s BJJ place now. ACA has moved around because they are a hardcore team that can't keep a gym going under that concept. it's hard to keep a gym going when it's strictly hardcore. Phone Post

There are exceptions to every rule Anthony. Most of those gyms have side packages where they attract their real paying members. ACA has never been about that really. Scott had some side deals at his gym but it didn't involve anything with them. They are just a very hardcore MMA team. Phone Post

As long as I have a good GPA Anthony. If you don't like the program you could always complain to your Congressman. Since you have never served your country I don't think they give it much thought.
