Bill "The Grill" Cooper was nicknamed one of America's Most Exciting Grapplers in 2008 and he's up for Grappler of the Year for 2009. I'm conducting an interview with Bill Cooper this Friday for GrapplingRADIO and want to know what you want me to ask him...What questions do you have for BILL COOPER?

David Garmo asked: What weight does he walk around at (not cutting for tournament weight)?

Anthony Califano asked: Where did you learn such good take downs having never wrestled??

Mike Rethmeyer asked: What is your training schedule?

Undefeated 8-time Grapplers Quest Pro Division Champion anown d Miami's FightSports head instructor, Roberto Abreu, took second place in his first ADCC. Roberto took out two time Abu Dhabi champion Jeff Monson prior to losing in the finals to Fabricio Verdun. An unbelievable accomplishment on the international stage.Congratulations to FightSports friend and training partner Pablo Popovich (9-Time Grapplers Quest CHampion) for his championship at ADCC too. After holding Jiu-Jitsu seminars in France, Cyborg made it onto the cover of French karate magazine “Bushido”.

I first met Josh Barnett at the Pan American Games in 2005. He is a confident, well spoken and knowledgeable fighter and instructor, but it was great to meet someone who had achieved so much at a young age, defeating Randy Couture to capture the title. Sadly, it was stripped for his alleged steroid usage, but everyone knows Barnett is the top contender for the Heavyweight title of any MMA organization, worldwide. I hope he signs with the UFC in 2010.

We've gotten tons of requests for INSTRUCTIONAL Videos on foot and ankle locks, their fundamentals and variations. So we start with a great explanation and clip, demonstrated by Matt Owen, black belt under Pedro Sauer. He is a multiple-time Grapplers Quest champion and one of the nicest and funniest guys in the sport.
