I'm still on track for my last few fights for 2016. Next one up is in Phoenix, Arizona for the Muay Thai Open tournament from April 22nd-24th. 

If I do well, I may get an offer that I will most likely refuse due to my age and mileage on this busted body.

What happened to the October fight?

Short story version is that my opponent missed weight. Not by a little either, his KFC loving butt was two weight classes above 48 hours before weigh ins.  I wasn't not able to to accept the fight even if I wanted to due to commission regulations, however I was fairly compensated for showing up at weight.  Very anticlimactic end to a grueling fight camp in which my trainer had two world class strikers from Thailand help train me.

TWO weight classes?  What is that, 15 pounds?

True story is he was afraid of the The Spider (that is your new UFC name until I come up with a better one) and was stress eating.

Had to cancel last weekends tournament fights in Arizona due to me breaking my big fat toe on my left foot 3 weeks earlier.  I don't have another fight lined up until June or July so I'm just taking it easy smile

How did you break the toe (I was assuming from the date on the video this is not when it happened)?

I broke my toe early April, just 3 weeks before the fight.  It was our last hard sparring session and my partner and I got hurt from our very last exchange. I kicked his ribs and broke a few while simultaneously breaking my big fat toe

Lol, well that was just a disaster all around.

At this point it seems like the bulk of Kato's fighting career is going to be lots of training followed by cancelled fights.
