‘We’re changing the name! ‘The Monthly catch-up’ is now ‘TFC News’.  We’ll still be covering the latest in TFC’s Boxing, BJJ and Muay Thai events, plus we’re adding MMA news!

Fight Recap – February

Urban Warfare

February was a huge one for our Boxing Fight team.  Urban Warfare took place on February the 12th and saw 6 of our Boxers  take to the ring in impressive style. Tarique, Trent, Clint and Diaz all came away with the W’s. George and Owen left their all in the ring with impressive hard fought performances and came up just short via judges decisions (Owen via split dec.). Massive congratulations to Diaz on taking home another belt under the Australian Boxing Council.

Watch – Canelo Alvarez style breakdown

We’ve all seen Canelo move just out of the way of his opponents shots only to land his own devastating counter strikes. Check out this video on how he uses his stance and footwork to set up his defense to seamlessly transition to offense.


Listen – Podcast

A must-listen if you’re into MMA or BJJ. 3 of the best in their respective fields discuss at length the things they did to set themselves apart from the pack.  Lex Fridman brings together an all star lineup of podcast guests in Georges St-Pierre, John Danaher and Gordon Ryan in what could very well be a podcast of the GOATS.
