Drew Dober won FIGHT! Magazine’s Full Time Fighter contest. The prize package included training gear from Jaco and MMAWarehouse, a week of training with Shawn Tompkins at Xtreme Couture in Las Vegas, Nev., and cash to blow on slots and “exotic dancers.” We’ll be keeping up with him all week to let you know about his experience as a full time fighter.
8 a.m. – Woke up debating what was going to happen this morning. Incredibly sore, I was a little worried that Shawn was gonna have me spar, haha.
9 a.m. – I arrive at the gym and I put my gloves on and work the heavy bag for a couple of rounds working on the techniques that Shawn was having me work on pads. A little while later jiu jitsu class starts and I partake in that. We went over side control escapes, drilled them, and then free rolled. After class we head back to the house.
11:30 a.m. – I arrive back at the house and I chat with Sam and the rest of the guys about what’s going on tonight. They tell me they are going to supervise some weigh ins that one the Couture’s fighters is fighting in. So I decide to take nap.
4 p.m. – I wake up and decide that I need a day to heal so I take the night off and check out Vegas with a teammate I met at the gym.
10 p.m. – I go back to the house and go to bed debating what the last day at Couture’s is gonna bring.
