Victory for Lindsey at Bellator 215

It was an exciting night for the audience and the supporting crew of Precision at Bellator 215. They were immediately treated to an extraordinary performance in the preliminary portion put on by Precision’s student Lindsey ‘Damsel’ Vanzandt, that resulted in a beautiful finish; a second round knock out. Lindsey continues to prove that she is a dominating, unstoppable force at 105 pounds that will continue to climb the ranks until she becomes a champion. The second round knock out improved her professional record to 5-1.

At the beginning of round one, a fair share of punches and kicks were exchanged between Lindsey and her opponent, but Lindsey’s unmatched perfectly timed take down and carefully placed punches were competitive enough to keep her opponent challenged and hurt. In the second round, Lindsey dominated the striking exchanges, stalking her opponent into the fence. From there, Lindsey rocked and dropped her opponent with a beautiful left hook that ended the round with a KO.

The beginning of the end

Going into the fight, Lindsey lost her original opponent, but was fortunate enough to be matched up with another opponent to fight. Lucky for us, because it was truly an entertaining performance. Lindsey walked away from the cage that night with little to no injuries, a victory and a great attitude.

Lindsey is already back in the gym training, improving and looking forward to competing again in the near future. Lindsey isn’t just a great fighter, she also has a big heart and a great attitude, touching everyone she meets in a positive way. We’re proud to represent such a strong willed, competitive individual in the MMA community, and we’re looking forward to see her excel in her journey to become a champion.

Always big smiles from Lindsey

Anybody who’s been following MMA for the past couple of weeks will likely be discussing the aftermath of the long awaited bout between “The Notorious” Conor McGregor and Khabib “The Eagle” Nurmagomedov. This bitter rivalry hit a new boiling point after Khabib, a UFC world champion,  hurled himself over the cage and lunged at McGregor’s Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu coach Dillon Dannis. Dannis, a grappling phenom and Bellator MMA star answered with a quick flurry of punches towards Khabib before the two were separated by security.dillon and brian

A fact that most people are unaware of, is that at one point Dillon, Khabib and Precision head coach Brian McLaughlin all trained together under the same roof at AMA Fight Club in Whippany, NJ. At the time, Khabib was preparing for his UFC debut and Dillon was an up and coming prospect; a teen just getting started at Pro Practices. Coach Brian was instructing at AMA as well as sparring with pros himself. Back then, Dillon was quiet and kept a low profile but would show flashes of the brashness that has become his calling card. Khabib was all business from day one. He would come in with his small army of Russians and each of his training partners would pray that they’d make it out of practice with all of the limbs they came in with.

In the days of AMA Fight Club, Dillon and Khabib were always cordial, but life took them in different directions. Khabib relocated to San Jose, California and Dillon became a prodigy under Marcelo Garcia and eventually caught the eye of Conor McGregor; the biggest star that the sport has ever seen. Although the world sees them as bitter rivals at each other’s throat, the memory remains of them being two hard working martial artists sharing the mat in the quest toward greatness.

Poughkeepsie MMA

There are many gyms to choose from in the Poughkeepsie area for mixed martial arts.  All boast that they can help you reach UFC glory.  However, the reality is that none of the instructors at these Poughkeepsie mixed martial arts gyms have never fought themselves and certainly never worked with a fighter who has reached the UFC.

Precision Mixed Martial Arts is different.  Head instructor Brian McLaughlin has stepped into the UFC octagon as a fighter on season 8 of “The Ultimate Fighter” and won MMA titles in Ring of Combat and Sportfighting.

However, Coach Brian’s highest achievements are not his personal victories, but those of his students.  Brian’s instruction goes beyond the Poughkeepsie area; he is sought after by some of the best fighters in the entire Mixed Martial Arts world to help them prepare for their high profile UFC fights.

UFC veteran Dan Miller enlisted the help of Precision’s head coach for his UFC on FX fight against Brazilian Jiu-jitsu black belt Ricardo Funch.  With Coach Brian in his corner Dan secured a spectacular guillotine choke and earned himself a hefty bonus for “Submission of the Night”

Dan credits his success in part to the training he received from coach Brian:

 

Hi I’m Dan Miller UFC welterweight I’ve been training with Brian McLaughlin – a fantastic jiu-jitsu coach, very technical just a great coach all around and a great guy. If you’re ever up in the Poughkeepsie area you’ve got to get in there and train with him.  He’s got some great guys in the gym and he helped me win my “Submission of the Night” in my last fight, it was a fantastic night and I have a great time training with him

UFC superstar Jim Miller also works with Brian to prepare for his fights.  Most recently, Jim won “Fight of the Night” honors in his victory against top lightweight Joe Lauzon in what many are calling the fight of the year.

Precision Mixed Martial Arts Raises over $6,000 for the Daniel James Miller Foundation

daniel james miller

Daniel James Miller Foundation is fighting to save the life of Daniel James Miller son of UFC Fighter Dan Miller

“On behalf of the Daniel James Miller foundation, thank you SO MUCH Brian for getting involved and thank you to all of your people at Precision MMA who have contributed!!”

– Mike Constantino owner of AMA Fight Club

UFC Fighter Dan Miller is a friend and long time training partner of Precision MMA coach Brian McLaughlin.  Brian and his students at Precision MMA heard about the tragedy that befell the Miller family and were very motivated to help. Below is the story of little Daniel James Miller:

Daniel James Miller, son of UFC middleweight fighter Dan Miller and his wife Kristin, was born with autosomal recessive polycystic kidney disease.

His kidneys are large, approximately 3-4 times as large as they should be, and as the name implies, full of cysts. At birth, Danny’s kidneys functioned at a level that allowed his body to clear itself of toxins and fluid, but he required medications to maintain his blood pressure and electrolyte balance. Unfortunately, when he was 2 ½ months old, he became very ill and as a result of that illness, lost all kidney function. He was hospitalized at Children’s Hospital in Philadelphia, Pa., where he was started on hemodialysis initially, and then later, peritoneal dialysis. Daniel was hospitalized for a total of about 2 months, the majority of that time, sedated, with multiple intravenous lines, and under constant 1:1 nursing care. His parents, Dan and Kristin learned to care for him, including the mechanics and the principles of peritoneal dialysis. Also, due to the oversized kidneys, Danny required tube feedings and special feeding considerations.

Finally, in May 2010, Danny was discharged home and thrived under the constant and loving care of his parents. He is a bright, sweet and affectionate little boy, who loves being read to, enjoys being outdoors, and is crazy about his “puppies”. He amazes us every day with his capacity to learn and to love.

Danny’s journey is far from over. Although the dialysis that he receives every day clears the toxins and excess fluid from his body, the many other functions of a normal kidney are not replaced by the dialysis, so Danny’s growth has been slow and certain hormone levels are difficult to regulate. Kidney transplantation, specifically a living donor kidney transplant, has been planned, but before that can take place, Danny must have both of his kidneys removed to make room for the transplanted kidney. Once transplantation occurs, Danny will continue frequent follow up visits to the hospital to be monitored and he will require anti- rejection medications for the rest of his life.

Please donate to aid Daniel in his fight for life.

Although Precision MMA’s donations have helped, there is still more that need to be done.  To find out more or donate please visit http://danieljamesmillerfoundation.wordpress.com/
