I’m used to buying my own gloves and shin guards and gear. I always bought my supplements, vitamins, protein powder. And I was jealous when I hear about fighters getting sponsorships, especially new fighters who only had a few pro fights. Man, I had over 15 and I still had to buy my own stuff.
I’ve had two loyal clothing sponsors, Fightchix and Tussle, have been with me for years, even when I fought on little tiny shows that could barely get them publicity.
Fightchix made the warmest fleece shirt I own.
I like to say, “If there’s a nuclear disaster, it’d be the first thing I’d grab.” And it’s funny cuz it’s true – I was in Japan when the nuclear power plant blew, and it WAS the shirt I grabbed when I evacuated Tokyo. lol
And Tussle makes the coolest designs of T shirts I’ve seen in a fight company. I love them.

And my Webmaster Wetdryvac.net has been making my site and helping me ever since college.
But recently, I’ve gotten a few more sponsors. I want them all to know how grateful I am. Thank you, from all my heart, to my sponsors, because they help me follow my dream!
If fans support these companies, they support me, because I become worthwhile as a sponsoree.
