This show we will have on Rick McCoy (The Founder of MMA for Charity) & Aaron Riley (UFC Fighter). Since the earthquake that sent destruction through Haiti, we have seen support from all reaches of the world. However we have not seen anything big from the MMA World, until now. Rick McCoy is organizing a two-day seminar hosted by MMA Institute. The seminar will consist of MMA training, and the team of instructors will be made up of world class MMA fighters such as WEC lightweight contender “Cowboy” Donald Cerrone, UFC fighters Aaron Riley and “The Filthy Mauler” Tom Lawlor, Bellator fighter Jorge “Gamebred” Masvidal, and 2009 Abu Dhabi Combat Club (ADCC) champion and recent Shine Fights signee Braulio Estima. In addition, 50/50 Jiu-Jitsu owners Ryan Hall and Seph Smith will be teaching, and a kids seminar will be educated by the well-respected John Simons. All these great athletes will be donating their time, and merchandise will be auctioned off, with all proceeds going towards Haiti relief. MMA for Charity is an organization conceptualized by MMA Institute Head Trainer Rick McCoy and Eric Callahan in order for the sport he loves to have an opportunity to respond to the tragedy in Haiti. “When I saw the footage of all the suffering going on in Haiti, I just felt in my gut that I needed to do something, I spoke with some of my associates, and things quickly came together to form the organization. Now, the sport gets to show that it’s about more than what happens in the cage.” Aaron Riley is a professional fighter with a record of 2-2 in the UFC with wins over Jorge Gurgel and Shane Nelson also having fights against Robbie Lawler, Yves Edwards, and Chris Lytle. We will talk to Rick McCoy about MMA for Charity and why he got started in helping. We will have him break down the seminar for those of you in the VA area. We will talk to Aaron about his time in the UFC, fighting and his life, and much more. Tune in to a great show for a great cause.
