High Performance Drammers – UFC Fighters & Victory Whiskies!
Obviously elite athletes like UFC fighters do not spend much time drinking! However there is little harm in having a little celebratory sip after a victory. Hard work without reward is really no fun at all. We are big fight fans here at TheWhiskeyRecord so we sat down with three UFC fighters to talk whiskey and fighting!
Ricky Simon is a familiar name with many UFC fans due to his energetic style and notable contribution to the mullet cause. A 17-3 record including scalps of all the all action Merab Dvalishvili and Ray Borg speaks to the man’s ability in the octagon.
Simon will be throwing down against Brian Kelleher at UFC257 this weekend in what will likely be a fight of the night contender. Residing in Washington State not too far from Portland Ricky enthuses about the merits of the local distillery offerings.
Post Fight Beverage – Pendelton Directors Reserve
The Fresh Prince is a fascinating dude with a real zest for life. Equally at home in the cage or on the basketball court Rowe is an incredible athlete who is now making up for lost time having come late to MMA.
Rowe vanquished brother of Edman, Leon Shahbazyan on Dana White’s Contender series to earn his contract. He will be looking to build on his 7 fight win streak when he takes on Gabe Green at UFC258 in his UFC debut. Expect Rowe to look right at home on a big UFC PPV night!
Post Fight Beverage – Bulleit Bourbon
The Jamaican Sensation is nothing shore of a pure killer. He bounced back from a UFC debut loss against Brian Kelleher by stepping up a division and stopping Jerome Rivera inside 40 seconds with a jedi like shoulder roll and left hand off a head kick.
Osbourne sees the flyweight division as his natural home. Despite his call out of either Figueiredo brother we’d like to see him matched up with Manel Kape!
