    Not a noob to online forums, but to this one so I thought an intro was in order....My name is Nick McKinney,

    I have 3 years MMA training and a blue belt in Miletich Fighting Systems

    I train with Jason Reinhardt at Reinhardt Mixed Martial Arts in Decatur, IL (A Miletich Elite Satellite)

    My training partners over the past three years have included Jeremy Horn, Spencer Fisher, Matt Hughes, Kelly Wiseman, Pat Miletich, etc.

    I pay the bills doing technology accounting and process management for a Fortune 500

    I keep myself sane by doing fighter recruiting and promoting for Courage Fighting Championships (let me know if you're interested):)

    I am usually a middleweight but that definately isn't the case right now due to a really fun injury and a lack of training (220lbs!)

    I'm currently in the process of incorporating an MMA Apparel company because it sounded like fun as well.

    Well that's it, for more you can go to my newly created (pathetic) myspace page at www.myspace.com/nicholasmckinney

    I twisted the wrong way to escape a heel hook.

    Luckily no, they guy I was rolling with let go as soon as I turned the wrong way but still caught me a little bit in the ankle, I just wasn't able to put a lot of weight on it for several weeks. Probably just a really bad sprain.

    :noes: I did the same thing in an absolute nogi tourny but the guy didn't mess up my ankle :noes::noes:

    It sure was scary when I was thinking about it after though.
