The Vidonic Chronicles: Training Diary 2/18/13 – 2/23/13

Patricia Vidonic female MMA fighterThis week we took it kind of easy, since we had fights the weekend before. As well as traveling, we all know that sucks the life right out of you, well it sure does me…

I am trying to walk around at a little lighter since my last fight. First off, I am getting too old to cut more than 5 or so pounds in the sauna at a time, but the main reason is I never want to feel the way I did during my last fight.

I tried to cut 17 pounds in 9 days, I got 15 pounds off and it cost me all of my energy about halfway through the first round. I couldn’t throw a punch, I even had a heel hook sitting in my lap, couldn’t grab for it either…

I am a smart and tough, still to this day have never been finished; however I could have won that fight if I had all of my strength and energy. I am still very grateful to fight for Bellator and cannot wait until they have me back!!

Let’s put this out there ~ I am looking for an MMA fight in April, or somewhere around there. I am 115 pounds (7-4), out of Billings, Montana. Please spread the word!!

Contact me on Facebook , Twitter or text/call my manager 406-672-1080!
