UFC on Fox 6: Daily Blog (Day 1)

Wednesday January 23rd 2013

Today is a travel day. Heading to Chicago for the weekend to support our local fighters and hopefully snag some deep dish pizza and hot dogs in the process. On the card this weekend (4) Jackson’s MMA fighters will be on the card including the main event of John Dodson who will be fighting for the flyweight title.

Thankfully ABQ Sunport is a relatively small airport and the TSA lines are always short.

Sitting in the airport I noticed the weekly Alibi (alibi.com). I have been picking up the Alibi for 15+ years for local concerts and events. This weeks Alibi had a bit of a surprise.

And what do you know… A photo of Clay Guida I shot last week.

Unfortunately, they didn’t pickup one of the John Dodson photos. John is home grown 505. Born, raised and proud of his green chile roots. To show John some love… here is a photo from last week I shot during one of his final workouts with coach Greg Jackson.

Leaving a sunny 60 degree afternoon in Albuquerque and flying into a balmy sub-zero in Chicago was a bit of a shock.
