*wrote this before the LK1 event on Jan16th

 

In a couple of days my brother Samuel Mongonia will be stepping into the ring against an opponent with twice his experience for Legacy FC’s LK1 event Jan 16th. In the weeks leading up to this fight, we’ve had one hurdle after another. It’s been one big battle from day one, but looking back I’m glad we’re at where we’re at. When you get in the ring, the allusion is that it’s just the fighter, but to quote my brother “it’s me in there, but it’s all of us”. What makes a great fighter isn’t solely his/her talent and hard work; it’s the village that builds the fighter. You can’t be a great fighter and a narcissist. I take personal responsibility for each and every person that I put in the ring. It’s a responsibility I don’t take lightly, and it often weighs heavy on my heart because each and every single one of my fighters is my friend and my family. In all honesty, it’s a big scary world out there. You’ve got a lot of promoters that are looking only to use your guys as tomato cans; my family is too precious to me to be someone’s kicking can. One reason I like tournaments, is because it allows you to get fights against high level guys and get attention, while fighting guys on neutral ground. When I book fights for my guys, I try to book good fights. Not easy fights, but fights that they’re prepared for. I pour my whole heart into my family, and those that are worth my time and being called family do likewise… We couldn’t do this without the all the people, from fellow fighter Jennifer Guerrero and coach Uriel Figueroa to the friendships and everyone whom walked with Sam every step of the day, and that includes the hobbyist’s like Brad and the morning crew that get up in the awful time of the morning to run and train in the freezing wet cold that is a Houston winter.

I whole heartedly believe that the key to our success isn’t one person, but all of us… all of Revolution. We must always remember a fast rise, leads to a fast fall. It’s about earning fights… it’s about building a legacy, and there is no substitute for experience. It’s been a long road for us, but all the hard work is worth it. Legacy FC is starting a kick boxing league called LK1 and Muay Thai Kingdom, has continued to be successful hosting good shows. So the future for Houston Kickboxing and Muay Thai looks bright.
