Is it on tv?
No it is not unfortunately. One fight to go before Eryk fight.

Alright guys. Eryk is up. Should start in a few minutes.
Let's go Eryk!
Yes. I trained there in 06 and 07. Chase started about 6 months after I did.
Eric took round one and looked solid, but fell victim to an arm bar in the second round. Hats off to Horton, he weathered the storm and was too experienced in the ground.
Great night of fight put on by strike hard.
Eryk really did a lot of damage. Horton was helped back to the dressing room and has one heck of a black eye. Eryk just made a mistake and it cost him tonight.
Best of luck to Eryk in the future!
No consolation but I was told by one of the promotors that they probably would have stopped the fight if Eryk had survived the round bc of so much damage to Horton. TFWIW.
I see Eryk having a great career in the cage once he gets some more experience, he will learn from tonight and only get better before he turns pro. Wishing him only the best.
Maturity is a bitter disappointment for which no remedy exists, unless laughter can be said to remedy anything. -- Kurt Vonnegut, Jr.
Agreed Eryk was impressive tonight, just lacks the experience for now. He has a bright future ahead of him. Only been doing this for just over a year.
Wow...Eryk will be a machine when he gets more bjj and overall fight experience.
Props to Horton for finishing a guy after taking that much damage...that is one tuff dude
Exactly right. Eryc was starting for the Crimson Tide in the January 2010 BCS championship game. By that time, Chase was tapping out purple belts and had already been the Main Event on an MMA card. BTW, I just went on Chase's FB, and his eye does look terrible.
What gym/city are these guys training out of? Do any of you guys know a good school near the Marshall County area? I took some BJJ classes in Montgomery for a little while and loved it, but when I moved back here, I haven't found a place nearby to go to (figured this would be a good thread to ask this in instead of starting a new one...lol). I have no desire to actually get in the cage...just enjoy the sport and is great exercise....
Eryk trains out of Champions gym in Birmingham. Chase's gym escapes me right now.
I was there, ans Anders is a legit talent. Oh, and did'nt know it before fight, but horton fought with an intestinal virus, that's why he was taken to hospital. Very sick kid, and one tough sob.....
Heres the fight
Eryk Anders vs Chase Horton - Killer Buzz Arena - August 25, 2012 - Round 2 - THE WINNING ROUND This video was uploaded from an Android phone.
10 Major Poll National Titles (CFB record)
35 Bowl Wins (CFB record)
72 Wins over last 6 years (CFB record)
Unfortunately, I don't know anywhere in Marshall Country. However, you're only about an hour from Cullman, AL. Triad in Cullman is unquestionably the best school in the state. There are only 7 BJJ black belts in the state of Alabama. 4 of them are in Cullman. Johnny Lee Smith is a 3rd degree black belt and instructor. Daniel O'Brien is by far the best grappler in the state. No one else is even close.
Where did you train in Montgomery? I've been training in Montgomery for 6 years and am a purple belt here. If you trained here, you would know me.
Chase trains out of Childersburg MMA. James Srygley is the instructor there. He's been doing BJJ for over 10 years and is a black belt under Roger Costa. His brother, Tommy, is a brown belt there, and they have a few purples there too.
I went to the fight with RNRBAMA7 and Anders was impressive. I don't know how much of was because Horton was really, really sick, but both impressed. Chase Horton is one tough SOB to fight that sick. He left the arena on a stretcher and straight into the ambulance.
Anders cut him really bad too. Anders' conditioning is really, really good. He's strong, fast, and if he keeps learning at the rate he's going, I can see him doing big things....
I was telling some guys that it's was so obvious that Anders understood the leverage game from playing football all those years. Especially being an undersized DL going up against guys much bigger. And his athleticism is top notch.
Both guys will be good pros.....
If Manley is your last name, that seems very familiar to me... I took about a month's worth of classes at BJJ Revolution. Loved the atmosphere and instruction both. It is a great place. I really enjoyed it, but law school got in the way. I just couldn't devote the time I wanted to it then. I learned a lot...tapped my brother in law with a kimora and set-up we learned there. He had been training for around a year at a local MMA gym and has 2 amateur cage fights...both losses...
I heard the same things about Triad. What I may do is start at the same local gym he was at (he just moved to TTown for classes at UA this fall). If I can stick with it with my schedule, I may either cross-train for BJJ with Triad or just start going there. Since I started my own practice, I am a bit more flexible, so I may be able to handle it. It's an hour drive from here.
What's your first name? I was the assistant instructor at BJJ Revolution from Feb. 2008 - June 2010 and taught the Tues. and Thurs. classes. My first name is Alan. When Chris Taylor moved, I took over as head instructor there until Feb. 2011 when I decided to merge our school with another school here in town. I appreciate the comment about the atmosphere there. We really tried to keep the MMA deuchebags outta there.
