I've gotten to roll  with many pros, largely in the Miletich heyday in Bettendorf Iowa, but in no way did I consider myself a member of MFS.  I was a weekender/enthusiast in graduate school and have no illusions that I was on their level.

 

But I've rolled with Pat M, Tony Fryckland, Jeremy Horn, Matt Hughes, Tim Sylvia, Robbie Lawler, etc.  Very briefly (I'm talking about 20 minutes or so) I got to roll with Relson Gracie and Fabio (last name escaping me).

 

As far as actual training I've rough housed with Spencer Fisher a few hundred times.  He's an awesome instructor.

Santos?


Yes, Santos! He was Dean Lister's coach at a JJ event, and he and Relson hung out with us for an evening in Raleigh. Didn't get a chance to roll with Lister tho, that would have been awesome and humbling.

Baret Yoshida, Egan Inoue, once was in a Muay Thai class and sparred with Rodrigo Gracie (and took some overhands lol). This was all a long time ago.

Trained with Mayhem. He was cool.

Trained with Baroni. He was a meathead twat.

John Lowy at the Ledley Hall, he would come in there and train when he was getting ready for Barrera, we were all kids and he would 'spar' with us, teach us a few dirty tricks and techniques, a true Belfast hero and gentleman.

James Krause, Tim Elliot, zack Cummings, drew dober. 
tim was one of my favorite people to spar. Was always coming up with new stuff. Had energy for days. And was super cool. 
I could spar James and if I got one hit in a 5 minute round it was because he let me in order to counter. The man is absolutely sick. 
cummings hits hard. 
dober came down just to work with some people. I really like the guy. He’s super fast and technical. Very good at reading people. 
I enjoyed learning from them and getting my ass kicked by them. 

Are you from Missouri?
