The Vidonic Chronicles: #LilP4theUFC

Patricia Vidonic female MMA fighterHow have you all been doing? Life is moving along here for me. Biggest and latest news has got to be that Dana has opened up the UFC’s 115-pound division!! You know, when I started fighting, I only joked about fighting in the UFC, now it is sooo very close to a reality!!

I admire the ladies who have stepped into the octagon, and one day I will be fighting in there also, I can just feel it. So people, let Dana know how much you want to see me inside the UFC octagon. Let’s all remember that I should have walked away with the win from my decision loss to JAG; watch it again if you would like, the video doesn’t lie…Thanks for all of your continued support!

Last weekend our gym hosted the pukies bash over at the Metra here in Billings. It’s a fun way for the Crossfit community in our region to come together to test their skills, learning new ones and just have fun being fit.

Check out the album from the fun time we had last weekend. There were a few event held out at there that weekend, so I even saw some of my friend Dan’s Kempo Karate students out there sparring. All week was full of hard work.

I pushed thru a Hero WOD on Tuesday, and worked my butt off doing doubles most of the week. Thanks to everyone who cheered me on, enjoyed watching me work, and most of all I wish that I was able to inspire someone this week.

I have been brewing my own Kombucha Tea, Saturday morning I bottled another batch, but this time I am double fermenting it with fruit juices. I made a couple of each: ginger lemon, ginger raspberry, and ginger raspberry.

I will be doing another batch here in the next day or so!! Super stoked and cannot wait. The health benefits to drinking this beverage is astonishing!! I cannot believe that I haven’t been drinking and making this sooner!

I want to thank my MMA coach/manager/husband…need I say more; I am grateful to have you to push me whether I want to be or not. You always have my best interest and you are willing to stand up for me in any instance.

I am grateful to Dan for having us at the gym, Clint and Katie for the same, as well as pushing me thru WODs and keeping count of my rounds/reps. Thanks to my Oly lifting coach Phil Sanderson for your time and everyone I lift with for, well lifting heavy stuff early in the morning with me!

I want to shout out to my gym & second home Alternative Athletics Crossfit and 4th Ave. Dojo, this is truly the best place on earth!!

I want to say thanks to all of my fans, family, and friends for all of your continued love and support!. Thanks to Jack with ProMMANow; as well as my sponsors ~ Training Mask ~ Nutrabio.com ~ Adventure Taxidermy Studio LLC.  Andrew Vecere Attorney at Law ~ Soap-a-licious.com  ~  Solo Graphics ~ Dawgs 4ever 4ever Dawgs  ~ ACES of Billings Montana  ~
