The Vidonic Chronicles: The serpent and the dog

Patricia Vidonic female MMA fighter

As always, life keeps all of us super busy! Here is another week down in history. First off, I want to welcome Soap-a-licious.com on as my newest sponsor. Please check out their site for all of your hygiene needs! From soaps, to lotions, to bath balms!!

Thanks to all of my wonderful fans who always support my amazing sponsors!!

Last Saturday we went to the Pictograph Caves, across the river from where we live. Jason and I went with the dogs; as the day went on, it got hotter. About half way through, on a really fun trail underneath a big rimrock Lola and I were going along and I heard it! That’s right, a rattlesnake!

Ahhhh, I was not happy, I pulled Lola in the air, and back down the trail, all 165 pounds of her!! Good thing I am strong, Jason and Gabby had to go down the side of the mountain a little to meet back up with Lola and I. Lets just say, once we got back to the pavement & gravel trails, we stayed there.

Sunday was Father’s Day, so we went out looking for a place to go 4×4-ing in our new truck. We ended up at Coulson Park, it is always a fun little place to go. By the end of the day we went to the gym to clean and someone else had done it. Thanks to whomever that was, we appreciate it. We were planning on disinfecting everything in the gym after we cleaned up, so that’s all we had to do!

I planned on BBQing a London broil, baked french fries, and homemade Boston cream pie for the boys, and well, you know what I had… The week went by really fast!! My teammate Ferg  has confirmed his Pro debut, we are waiting on the contracts now!! Stay tuned for more announcements to come!!

I am looking for a fight in late August and definitely in October, repping a breast cancer awareness card.

August 10th we have decided to host our 1st NoGi Grappling Tournament. It will be an old school style, submission only, with cash pots. There will be Men’s, Women’s & kid’s divisions, matched up by weight and experience. There will also be an Absolute division for the adults, this is co-ed.

There is a fee for spectators, which includes a hot dog and a drink, tournament registration includes a hot dog and drink. Pre registration IS required, and due by July 31st!! Thanks for all of your support! See you all there!
