Andre (Touchy) Filis first outing with Team Alpha Male was a fight followed by a brawl.It was October 2011 and Fili was fighting in Sacramento on a Capitol Fighting Championships card that was held in Urijah Fabers Ultimate Fitness gym, the home of the renowned Team Alpha Male MMA camp.Fili won a unanimous decision in the ring over Tony Rios, only to see a group of his friends brawling with a contingent of Rios supporters in the crowd.I jumped out of the ring and got involved, Fili recalled. I almost got suspended by the (athletic) commission.He landed on the judges table and headed for the brouhaha before fellow fighters Justin Buchholz and Danny Castillo dragged him back to the ring kicking and screaming.It kind of made me realize that what I was doing was not the right thing to do at that time, he said.Fili (13-2) has fought nine times since, winning eight of them, and is a member of Team Alpha Male.On Saturday night, the 24-year-old featherweight looks to set the table for training partner Chad (Money) Mendes at UFC 179 in Rio de Janeiro.Fili takes on Felipe Arantes (16-5-1 with two no contests) in the prelims before No. 1 contender Mendes (16-1) faces champion Jose Aldo (24-1) for the 145-pound title.Fili has looked to keep a busy calendar since he was turned down for the cast of The Ultimate Fighter. He was 4-1 at the time and was told he wasnt experienced enough.Fili proceeded to win six fights in the span of 10 months in 2012.He had been sidelined for a year prior to the Rios fight, injuring his knee in a 2010 loss to Derrick Burnsed. Fili met Faber, a former WEC champion, backstage and was invited to his gym.It was a tough year for Fili. In addition to suffering his first loss and needing surgery, he crashed his car and got arrested.His new training base was a step in the right direction, although it was painful at times as he made the transition from a small local gym to elite camp.I went from training two or three times a week and being the man to getting my ass kicked two or three times a day, he said. It was a rough transition. I was still kind of partying and doing the wrong things. It took a while to transition, to see what everyone was doing. All these guys were making fighting a lifestyle. Once I started doing that, making changes outside the gym, it really started paying dividends.When he first came to Fabers gym, he was under house arrest (for getting into a fight) and wearing a monitoring device on his ankle. He told his probation officer that fighting was his job, so he got to come to the gym to work out.I had to train with my ankle monitor on so I didnt throw left kicks for about thee months.Fili had a tough upbringing and had to turn his life around. He credits MMA and Team Alpha Male for helping him do it.It definitely could have gone a lot worse, he said of his life. It was actually going a lot worse, it was already headed the wrong way.A lot of people like to fight, said Fili.But there arent a lot of people who get their ass kicked and then go home and stick to their diet and give up going out so they can get rest. And then wake up the next morning and do it all again.Fili won his UFC debut, stopping Jeremy Larsen in the second round at UFC 166 last October on two weeks notice. He was training for a welterweight fight (170 pounds) when he got the offer to fight at featherweight (145).Fili was 178 pounds when he got the call for the fight. After a crash weight cut, he could get no lower than 148.5 pounds. The UFC appreciated his efforts, not to mention the win.Last time out, against an opponent who was a step up in class, he was submitted in the third round by Max Holloway at UFC 172 in August. I learned body kicks hurt really bad, he said of the Holloway loss during which he absorbed several spinning back kicks.One of them, I felt his heel in my liver, he recalled. And I almost sat down.He wasnt the same after and Holloway took advantage.Fili went back to the drawing board and says he just wants to to kick some ass in Brazil and show he belongs with the divisions top fighters.A colourful character who sings in punk rock bands, likes comics and tattoos and is sponsored by a local skateboarding shop, Fili wears tape on his earlobes in the cage to cover up holes stretched by spacers. A fan of body modification, he has eight piercings including his ears.They can be a pain in the ass at training but you get used to it, he said.———Follow @NeilMDavidson on Twitter Travis Zajac Jersey. "Last year didnt go the way we wanted it to, but we need to look at what went well and what didnt go so well. Hopefully this year we will be better," Brendan Gallagher said after practice. This year, the Canadiens have a little more depth to work with by adding players like Daniel Briere, Dale Weise, Mike Weaver, Douglas Murray and arguably, the biggest addition to this playoff roster, Thomas Vanek, who the Canadiens were able to land at the trade deadline. Pavel Zacha Devils Jersey. There are practical ideas, like this Chewbaca inspired Star Wars jerseys. Star Wars themed jerseys for the Toledo Mud Hens. The two teams will play through the completion of the game starting at 5pm ct on Wednesday. The regularly scheduled Wednesday night matchup will follow that and will now be seven innings. Jacob Josefson Jersey. -- Without Carey Price, the run for a first Stanley Cup in 21 years got steeper and longer for the Montreal Canadiens. Adam Henrique Devils - The game was all punts and field goals before Kodi Whitfields catch.HALIFAX - Mitch Gagnon may want to check his opponents ID when he steps into the cage Saturday night on a televised UFC card. The 29-year-old bantamweight from Sudbury, Ont., is on his third opponent, with Roman (El Gallito) Salazar stepping in this week for Rob Font, who had replaced Aljamain Sterling. Its part of the fight game, Gagnon said philosophically of the injury-related revolving door. Salazar (9-2) is a 26-year-old Tucson cable technician making his UFC debut. Gagnon (11-2) only found about his new opponent Monday but doesnt seem fazed. He says hes not big on game-plans. Im just going to do me, he said. Im positive Ill be come coming out victorious on Saturday. Gagnon, a prickly pocket rocket, has flown under the radar despite winning nine of his last 10 fights. He has won three straight since losing his UFC debut to Bryan Caraway via third-round submission at UFC 149 — a defeat that nevertheless earned him a US$65,000 bonus for fight of the night. The five-foot-five 135-pounder subsequently scored first-round submissions of Walel Watson and Dustin Kimura before winning a decision over Tim Gorman. Gagnons guillotine choke win over Kimura at UFC 165 in Toronto earned him a $50,000 bonus for submission of the night. That fight showed Gagnons heart. He was hurt by a Kimura body shot but promptly took his opponent down.dddddddddddd After escaping a heel hook, he hurt Kimura from top position. The fight ended when Kimura passed out from a guillotine choke after Gagnon stuffed a takedown attempt. He gave up six inches in height to Watson but floored him with a left and then locked in a rear-naked choke for a 69-second win at UFC 152. Ten of Gagnons 11 wins have come by submission, with six via guillotine choke. His cauliflower ears attest to an extensive grappling background. You dont get that ear playing tennis, UFC commentator Joe Rogan said dryly prior to the Kimura fight. It was an impressive comeback for Gagnon, who sat out a year after the Watson fight due to knee surgery. While focused on Salazar, Gagnon would like another shot at Caraway down the line. No excuses, he was the better man that day, Gagnon said. I just feel like Ive gotten better and he stayed the same. Gagnon, a former wrestler who took up MMA training some seven years ago, spent two months training for this fight in the Toronto area, with the occasional visit of his fiancee from Sudbury. He walks around at about 155 pounds, hitting 165 if I let myself go a little bit. As of Wednesday he was 147 pounds, still eating big meals and drinking water. Im doing everything right as far as the weight cut goes, he said. Im doing it as healthy as I can. china nfl jerseys ' ' '
