I am loosely connected to the MMA world.
My brother Mike Madlem built the second octagon cage (the only other being the UFC) in 2003 in Portland Oregon. He sets it up for every fight that is held at the Roseland in Portland and at the casinos on the Oregon Coast, Chael Sonnen being a close friend of Mike's and one of the FCFF founders.
I grew up with a love of the fighting sports, wrestling, boxing, karate etc, and eventually settled in Lucena City, Philippines in 2003(I am from Portland, Oregon originally) after 20 years in the Navy (retired 1993.)
I am 59 years old now but have trained a bit here with some of the younger guys. Unfortunately two abdominal surgeries have sidelined my training (2013/2014)
I am on the mend now and feeling good.
I have a young, 19 year old male Filipino fighter who is just fired up about going pro. I know nothing about sponsorship, but I have some videos of this kid fighting and he's got game.
He needs polishing and I don't think he can get it here in the Philippines. I would love to see this kid get to the states and fight so he can improve.
Any advice on finding sponsors? This kids got talent and I hate to see it wasted. Thank you, Uncle Pete
Looking for sponsorship and fight cards, my info is on my page, trying to get many matches to make money, looking to be a fighter and instructor as a career. anyone with information leave details.

After going 3-0, my coach is having me drop from welterweight to lightweight. This means I'll go from walking at 183 to walking at 170 so that I can make a 15 lb. cut to 155. Going to be ripped after cutting.
