Interview with Mike Rodriguez above

“After (I was released) I was done fighting, I was like ‘I’m just going to teach’. Then a bunch of guys from Albuquerque, came to Boston in February. My buddy Tom Egan pretty much pushed me back into training. So I started training with them guys and then we all loved it. We all loved our connection, we all loved how we worked. So they those guys were like ‘hey you gotta come down.’ So I came down to Albuquerque and I’ve (been down) here a month.”
