A Conversation with UFC’s Bryan Caraway

It's Bryan Caraway's Time For a Title Shot!

Meisha Tate and Bryan CarawayUFC Fighter Bryan Caraway is Hopeful a WIN Over Aljamain Sterling Sunday, May 29, 2016 Will Earn Him a Title Shot!

Make no mistake, this is going to be an exciting fight. With Sterling coming into the fight with a 12-0 record, is presently ranked 4th in the batamweight division. Caraway with a record of 20-8-0 is ranked 8th.

You may know Bryan Caraway from his stint on “ The Ultimate Fighter 14”. He came into the TUF competition with close to 30 fights under his belt. And since TUF 14,  he has put together  a respectable 5-2 record with UFC.

I recently had a insightful conversation with Bryan at his training facility, Xtreme Couture MMA in Las Vegas. And apparently, his opponenet, Aljamain Sterling has been talking crap about Bryan via twitter. As Bryan shared, “ I think it’s going to bite him in the butt!”

Caraway acknowledged that they have similar styles, but added, “I’ve got more experience.” Ask any Musician, Comedian, or Public Speaker, and they will tell you, nothing, absoulutely nothing can replace Stage Time (LIVE EXPERIENCE).

Click To Watch This Video Interview: This is just 4 minutes from a 20 minute interview.

So when Bryan said “I’ve got more experience”, this is no joke. He has logged over 40 fights in his career and 85% of all his wins were by SUBMISSION! You can’t get that kind of grappling experience and mastery without a lot of LIVE FIGHT experience. LIVE Fights give you experience you can not get in the gym.

As  we were chatting, I got this strong feeling about Bryan…It hit me. This is Bryan Caraway’s time. This is his time to make the comitted run and CAPTURE the UFC Batamweight Championship Belt! Yes Sterling is young, strong and scrappy, but when it’s your time, NOTHING CAN STOP YOU!

Caraway shared that for his first  30 fights he got so nervous he would throw up before the match.

Guess What? Bryan’s not throwing up any more, he has learned to discipline that emtion.
Now, he’s KICKING ASS!

CAP Kid Group Las Vegas Children’s Alopecia Project – Building Self-Esteem, Providing Support, Raising Awareness

Gianna has had Alopecia since 2009, when she was five years old. Some years we had patches of bald spots, or nothing at all. In December 2014, Gianna lost all of her hair. In January 28th, 2015, in front of 700 school kids and parents, Gianna decided to take off her hat and grab the microphone to say “I have Alopecia and Bald is Beautiful.” That was the day we created the CAP Kid Group Las Vegas. We are going to give support for children and families dealing with alopecia. We promote alopecia awareness and want educate about this autoimmune condition. See the very inspiring text from Rob Schneider the day Gianna took off her hat. Also see who are all helping us spread the word: Tony Orlando, Bill and his daughter McKenna Medley. Comedians Jim Breuer, Jay Mohr, Last Comic Standing winner of season 1, Dat Phan. Magician Rick Thomas, and many more people. You don’t have Alopecia to join the fun. Thank you for the support, see you soon.

Who are we?

The Children’s Alopecia project is a 501 © 3 Nonprofit Organization. Children’s Alopecia Project Branches into LAS VEGAS helping to give support for children and families dealing with alopecia. By installing confidence, self-acceptance, we believe CAP is empowering them to become strong kids, teens and productive adults. We will promote alopecia awareness together as a TEAM in the community and educate about this autoimmune condition. We will plan fun events, activities, and group meetings

What is Alopecia?

Alopecia is an autoimmune disease that is not life threatening, but is life altering. It is not contagious. You can’t catch it and it does not hurt. It is almost like your body is allergic to hair, which causes it to fall out. Alopecia Areata is a type of hair loss that occurs when your immune system mistakenly attacks hair follicles, which is where hair growth begins. It usually starts with one or more small, round, smooth patches. This disease affects approximately 2% of the population overall, including more than 5 million people in the United States alone.

– Alopecia Areata – Patchy Hair Loss
– Alopecia Totalis -Majority to Total Loss of Hair above the Neck
– Alopecia Univeralis – Total Body Hair Loss
