MMA--A Family Affair
This may seem a strange topic for my blog, but from time-to-time I do write about other things than mysteries, writing mysteries, and hosting guests. And often, the other things have to do with family.
Recently, my eldest great grandsonBrandon had an MMA fight at the Tachi Palace in Lemoore.
His opponent had 9 previous matches and never lost.
Brandon had had 3 matches, lost one and won two.
His opponent trains in one of the most prestigious gyms in the area.
Brandon trained in the fellowship hall of the First Baptist Church in Springville. He's also the one who runs the MMA training. My son worked with him on his strength training. His brother did the wrestling. My grandson-in-law did the boxing. His dad was right there with all the training.

I might add that Brandon also is one of the youth pastors at our church.
When it came time for the fight, not only did a lot of relatives attend the fight, so did many of our church members including a lot of the youth.

Yes, Brandon won! They went the three rounds. It was judged the best fight of the night.
Did I go? No, I stayed home and prayed.
