A Morale Patch Bourne Of Hypocrisy

Wednesday, July 27th, 2016

Have you ever noticed that “Celebrities” really enjoy making statements about whatever hot topic issue will get them the most press?

One such example is Matt Damon, who decided to spew all sorts of anti 2nd Amendment talking points recently. Ironically, he voiced his asinine opinion while engaged in a publicity tour for the most recent installment of his GUN HEAVY Bourne franchise. Well, the irony wasn’t lost on our friends at Tactical Pro Shop in Burbank, CA. So they are proudly producing a limited run of this patch.

These are Direct UV printed on PVC coated polyester webbing with velcro hook bonded to the backside.

$5.00 from each patch sale goes to the CalGuns Foundation, the leading voice in the fight for 2A Rights in the state of California. California is a paradise, legislated by idiots, and they practice over-reaching gun control there before they try to take it national.

Instead of spending money on a movie this weekend, buy this patch and help the fight in California.

La Fête Nationale

Thursday, July 14th, 2016

Referred to as Bastille Day here in the US, the 14th of July is La Fête Nationale or National Celebration in France. It commemorates the Fête de la Fédération of 1790, which signified the unity of the French people one year after the Storming of the Bastille during the revolution. The French Revolution ironically succeeded in overthrowing King Louis XVI, who supported the American Revolution against King George III of England.

The day is marked with a military parade along the Champs-Élysées in Paris. Below is a short video, showcasing last year’s parade.

Match-ups and Bout Order Made Official for GLORY 32 Virginia and GLORY 32 SuperFight Series on Friday, July 22

Sunday, July 10th, 2016

GLORY 32 Virginia is being held here in Norfolk. Kickboxing is huge internationally, but it hasn’t seemed to catch in here in the US. To me, what’s really cool about this event is that there will be military bouts so come on out if you’re local and tune in if you’re not and check it out. It may be a sport you enjoy watching.

GLORY 32 Virginia: Live on ESPN3 at 10 p.m. ET, Replay on ESPN2 at 11 p.m. ET
GLORY 32 SuperFight Series: Live on UFC Fight Pass at 7:30 p.m. ET

New York, NY – GLORY, the world’s premier kickboxing league, today announced the full fight cards for GLORY 32 Virginia – including the one-night, four-man Light Heavyweight Contender Tournament participants – and GLORY 32 SuperFight Series. Ted Constant Convocation Center in Norfolk, Va. hosts both fight cards on Friday, July 22.

GLORY 32 Virginia, streaming live on ESPN 3 at 10 p.m. ET and replaying on ESPN2 at 11 p.m. ET, is headlined by reigning GLORY featherweight champion Serhiy Adamchuk (33-5, 14 KO) of Ukraine, defending his belt against Canadian challenger Gabriel Varga (27-3, 8 KO).

In the first of two semi-final bouts comprising the one-night, four-man Light Heavyweight Contender Tournament, GLORY newcomer Pavel “Caiman” Zhuravlev (69-10, 25 KO), representing Ukraine and fighting out of Sevastopol draws Brazilian debutant Ariel Machado (48-6, 33 KO). On the other side of the tournament bracket, No. 7 ranked Manny Mancha (5-2, 4 KO) of California takes on Algerian-French muay thai practitioner Zinedine Hameur-Lain (54-13, 33 KO), currently ranked No. 8.

Hard-hitting light heavyweight and Virginia native Brian “The Lion” Collette (22-3, 18 KO) returns to the GLORY ring in the co-headline bout against an opponent to be named later. Collette was originally slated to face Karl Roberson as part of GLORY 32 SuperFight Series but was moved to GLORY 32 Virginia after Roberson was forced to withdraw.
