Fight for the things that you care about, but do it in a way that will lead others to join you.

It’s said that you learn a lot about yourself when you get punched in the face. After Andrew Craig’s first amateur fight, he was hooked. That’s not just a boxing pun, it’s the truth. This week’s guest found Jiu Jitsu and eventually MMA in college and successfully trained his way all the way to the UFC. A rare achievement for even the most accomplished of athletes. Plenty of fight talk for the MMA enthusiast this week.

This is an ad. Please consider our shameless self promotion.

A man with two first names is always either a serial killer or a formidable opponent. Nothing could be more true of this week’s guest, Andrew Craig. A career as a professional fighter led him to coaching and eventually working to build relationships with future champs in the field. Hear Andrew and John trade thoughts on boxing and MMA greats.
