DETAILS ON HIS NECK INJURY

"CT scan showed a right C6 pillar fracture. By going through a high impact fight as he is scheduled for would put him at high risk for a spinal cord injury. It does appear that he is going to go onto full and complete healing 6-8 weeks. -Dr. William Smith, M.D." -Tito Ortiz

"Don't neglect your core! I used to be a maniac, busting out over an hour of fast paced ab exercises; my abs looked nice but didn't fire properly during my races. Now I am doing slow and controlled exercises. Planks, exercise ball balancing, breathing techniques, etc have changed the game for me. Loving my core that looks good and also works properly 💪😋 #makingme" -Natasha Wicks
