UFC VET AARON RILEY AND FAMED TRAINER FIRAS ZAHABI SIGN MANAGEMENT CONTRACTS WITH ALCHEMIST MMA

Riley is a long time UFC veteran with 44 professional fights to his credit. Zahabi is the head trainer of Tristar Gym in Montreal and trains several elite UFC fighters including Georges St Pierre and Kenny Florian.

Pompano Beach, FL

June 17th, 2011

AARON RILEY

AARON RILEY

Ultimate Fighting Championship veteran Aaron Riley and striking coach Firas Zahabi are now members of Alchemist MMA. At just thirty years of age, Riley is a seasoned veteran, having started his career in the sport at the tender age of sixteen in 1997. Zahabi is also a seasoned veteran, having boxed from the age of fifteen. Now 31 years old, he has reshaped striking in MMA with such high profile clients as Georges St Pierre and Kenny Florian.

“Alchemist strives to work with only the best in the business,” says Alchemist President Lex McMahon. We are very excited to ass two more highly talented clients to our roster. Aaron Riley is a seasoned veteran who consistently puts on amazing fights and Firas Zahabi is a brilliant strategist and coach.”

Aaron Riley once won “fight of the year” honors in 2003 when his slugfest with Robbie Lawler captivated fans at UFC 37. But don’t discount him as a relic of the sport. Riley was only 22 years old in that fight and still has a lot of mileage left in the tank. He won five of his last seven fights and most recently earned “Fight of the Night” honors against Jorge Gurgel at UFC 91 in 2008.

Riley is also part of a small club of fighters with over thirty wins in his career, which puts him in the company of Matt Hughes, Nate Marquardt, Fedor Emelianenko, and Anderson Silva.

“I’ve been away from the sport for a little bit nursing a back injury, but I’m ready to get back in the cage and make a run for the lightweight title,” he says. “I still have a lot of good years left in me, so I’m excited to get hooked up with such a great company like Alchemist and get my name out there more.”

Up in Montreal, another young veteran of the sport has also cast his lot with Alchemist. Firas Zahabi is a warrior–philosopher who earned a degree from Concordia University in Philosophy and is always looking to use that knowledge to evolve the sport and his fighters. It was Zahabi who morphed Kenny Florian’s striking from a Muay Thai style to that of a counterpunching boxer’s with a lower stance. The change immediately resulted in success as Florian knocked down Clay Guida and frustrated Takanori Gomi with crisp punches before submitting each one.

FIRAS ZAHABI

FIRAS ZAHABI

MMA is such a quickly evolving sport that I feel privileged to be working with some of the best coaches and athletes in the industry,” Zahabi says. “Now I get a chance to be a part of MMA’s fastest growing brand in Alchemist MMA.

Not content with just being one of the best coaches in the sport, Zahabi recently earned his black belt in Brazilian Jiu Jitsu and was a Canadian Champion in Muay Thai as well as a two-time Provincial Freestyle Wrestling Champion. Like his clients, he is never satisfied and always seeks perfection.

“Alchemist has made working with the best coaches in the industry a key strategic initiative,” adds McMahon. “The sport is evolving at such a rapid rate that economic and media opportunities for coaches are presenting themselves with greater frequency and appropriate representation is now requisite. Additionally, these relationships afford the fighters signed to Alchemist access to the best minds in the sport. Alchemist is proud to add Firas to our roster of coaches, which includes Trevor Wittman, Jon Chaimberg, and Antoni Hardonk.

Alchemist Management is a dynamic name in the world of MMA athlete management. Alchemist takes a holistic view of each athletes situation and contributes to every aspect of their life and career. Fight training, digital and traditional media development, cross-over industry exposure, business advisory services, corporate sponsorship development, and the ever-important, but often overlooked process of planning for a rich and fulfilling life after they wage their final battle in the cage are Alchemist’s signature services. Alchemist Management is based in Pompano Beach, Florida.  For more information, please visit www.alchemistmgmt.com.

Junior Dos Santos: I believe so much in me

UFC 131: Dos Santos vs. Carwin airs Saturday June 11 live on Pay-Per-View. The complete fight card can be found at http://www.ufc.com/event/UFC131#/fight.

Written by Penny Buffington

Both Junior Dos Santos and Shane Carwin have a Sherdog fight record of 12-1-0.  The last and only time Junior lost was back in 2006. Shane’s last and only loss was actually his last fight, which was to Brock Lesnar. It took place 7/3/2010 UFC 116 Lesnar vs. Carwin. Coincidentally Carwin is replacing Lesnar in this bout against Dos Santos after Brock suffered another bout with diverticulitis sending the former UFC heavyweight champion into surgery this month.

Lesnar and Dos Santos are the current coaches for this season of THE ULTIMATE FIGHTER Team Lesnar vs. Dos Santos airing on Spike TV. Fans can watch THE ULTIMATE FIGHTER Team Lesnar vs. Dos Santos finale show June 4 on SpikeTV. The finale show features the exciting Lightweight main event matchup of Guida vs Pettis. MMA2Day Show recently interviewed Anthony “Showtime” Pettis the article can be read @ /2011/05/23/exclusive-pre-fight-interview-with-anthony-%E2%80%9Cshowtime%E2%80%9D-pettis/ .

Concerning Shane’s loss to Brock, Shane states, “Every time you are in a fight you always try to come out of it as a better fighter.” Not sounding too heartbroken he went on to say, “It’s something I love to do. I love to compete. I am living the dream. I couldn’t ask for something better to do.”

Junior and Shane took part in a UFC Media conference call May 31 where the fighters gave Penny Buffington executive producer of MMA2DAY Show and other members of the media some insight as to their thoughts on their upcoming fight.

Carwin says, “Junior is a big threat on his feet. But my past several fights have been with top 5 or 10 in the World so Junior is no exception.” According to May’s World MMA Title rankings Junior is ranked #4 with Carwin coming in at #7. The complete list of MMA World Rankings can be found @ /2011/05/15/mma-world-rankings/ .

36 year old Shane Carwin feels every UFC fight is a tough fight. “You’re fighting the top contenders in the World so you are just expecting every fight is going to be a war.”

26 year old Junior “Cigano” dos Santos looks beyond telling us of his plans to fight for the heavyweight title currently being held by Cain Velasquez.  “Shane Carwin is a very dangerous fighter and I have to respect and I do respect. But I believe so much in me. I will do a 100% for me to keep in line for the title. My last fight was almost 10 months ago so that’s too much time without fighting. So I am very excited to fight him.”

He continued on to say, “I think I am a fast fighter. I have speed in my hands and my movements. I think I am a strong guy and I have enough skills to make it a hard fight for him.”

With both fighters having the exact same fight record it is bound to be an exciting fight. Also on the fight card some main event attractions: DONALD ‘COWBOY’ CERRONE vs. MAC DANZIG, DEMIAN MAIA vs. MARK MUNOZ, & KENNY FLORIAN vs. DIEGO NUNES.

TMZ spoke with the Illinois States Attorney who told us there was not enough evidence to prove the fighter committed a battery when he allegedly shoved another man into a female bystander at the Trails End Bar and Grill in Taylor Springs, IL.

TMZ broke the story the female bystander blamed Hughes for the injury she suffered during the alleged scuffle.

TMZ has confirmed 37-year-old Hughes was named in a police report filed in Taylor Springs, IL stemming from an April 23 incident at a place called Trails End Bar and Grill.

According to a source who was inside the bar, Hughes got into an argument with a male bar patron which led to some forceful shoving.
