“Big Country” Roy Nelson Knocked Out Cheick Kongo With a Huge Overhand Right at UFC 159

Roy Nelson, a.k.a., Big Country, knocked out Cheick Kongo at UFC 159. Nelson wasted no time, pushing Kongo against the cage. When the referee separated the fighters (for no good reason), Nelson landed an overhand right behind Kongo’s ear. One more shot to Kongo on the mat and the fight was over. Nelson has now won 3 straight fights – all by knock out. [@ZProphet_MMA] (original story found on thebiglead.com)

How to fit VW Audi SEAT Skoda Handbrake Return Spring

My instructions on how to fit VW Audi SEAT Skoda Handbrake Return Springs.

Gym Jones 300 training fitness boards

Back in May 2009, I was fortunate to take part in a free Gym Jones "300" training routine, which lasted for 14 weeks.


The training was grueling, and almost destroyed me on more than one occasion.
The minimum requirements were to attend at least three 30 minute sessions in the week, at JJB in Warrington.

I'll be posting the training boards for each week, each day.

For the time being - here's the final test that was to take place in week 15 after all the training has finished.
