EP #39: Fight Life (Untold Fight Stories & The Shows Unique Dynamic)

untold-fight-unique-dynamic

The word for the day, kids, is ‘Dynamic’. Why? Because Mike Swick said it a fistful of times when describing his relationship with his co-host, Marc Bogutzki. This episode is much more personal than usual because they basically only talk about their relationship.

There is some MMA talk, as Swick definitely wanted to clarify his comments and opinions on Conor McGregor

“The guys answer the most asked questions about the show and explain their unique dynamic as a Podcast. They go over many never before told stories from Mike’s entire fight career.”

My favorite part of Mike and Marc is always how they bash each other, yet barely bat an eyelash. Like it didn’t even happen. Have fun with this episode, guys. Mike and Marc certainly did.

Look at Pimp Swick living like Conor McGregor out in Hollywood

pimp-swick-living-conor-mcgregor-hollywood

Hey Evan, have you heard from Mike Swick in the past few days? No, I haven’t. Now I figured out why, after checking out Swick’s Instagram. It seems that Mr Quick is in the states living the Mac life. Swick was spotted in Hollywood placing Louis Vuitton boxes in an undersized Lamborghini trunk.

Maybe Swick got himself a fight with Floyd Mayweather and didn’t tell anyone. It is possible that the Lambo isn’t his and he’s got a side job as a valet to the stars. Whatever the case may be, Mike is in the states right now and he didn’t invite the MikeSwick.com staff to live the high life with him.

I assure you, we are all not bitter or totally jealous of Swick slaying life.

Mike Swick offers a ‘back to nature’ workout. It works, just look at him.

Mike-Swick-nature-workout

Have you ever wanted to look like Mike Swick? I know I have. Almost everyday writing on this site, that is my dream. Swick is also almost 40 years old and totally shredded. How you may ask? In one of his nature workouts, we are going to show you.

Despite the incredible AKA Thailand facility that Swick has created in Phuket, sometimes Swick just likes to get back to basics and train. The workout provided can be done by anyone in any place.

Take a look at Swick’s program and see if you could handle it. I know it works because the guy has had abs since he was 8 years old.

Take my advice… When a professional athlete shares their knowledge with you, get a pen and paper and have your motivation pants on!

It’s not @AKAThailand, but sometimes I escape to work out in complete seclusion and nature. My last session before flying here to LA. Now I am ready for another! πŸ˜‰ #Repost @savagelifemedia ・・・ We highlight one of @Mike_Swick’s nature workouts. This is one of his favorite routines, which involves body weight resistance. It goes like this… 30 minutes straight, no break. Minute 1: Max pull-ups. Minute 2: Max dips. Minute 3: Max pull-ups. Minute 4: Max dips. Minute 5: Max pull-ups. Same format until 30 minutes is reached. Will end with 15 sets of each. Once you start fatiguing out during the minute rep, take a slight break, shake or move your arms a little, then try to get more reps in before the minute is up. Mike will also mix in pushups with this routine with pull-ups/push-ups, or pull-ups/dips/push-ups. He may also just do a 20 minute routine like this, depending on the situation and what else he will work on that day. This video shows, there is no excuses when it comes time to get your daily workout in. You can work almost anywhere! πŸŽ₯ πŸŽ₯ πŸŽ₯ βž–βž–βž–βž–βž–βž–βž–βž–βž–βž–βž–βž–βž– Follow us on Twitter! @SavageLifeMedia πŸ“² βž–βž–βž–βž–βž–βž–βž–βž–βž–βž–βž–βž–βž– #akathailand #yoga #muaythai #crossfit #beastmode #muaythaigirls #muaythaitraining #fitnessaddict #phuket #thailand #rawai #fitnessfreak #fitnessretreat #muaythailife #savagelifemedia #alphamale #starfishconcept #mikeswick #viciouscircleapparel #weareaka #mma #ufc #crossfit #bjj4life #americankickboxingacademy #phuketstagram #patong #naiharnbeach

RQMS EP 38: AKA supercoach Javier Mendez talks everything AKA

rqms-aka-supercoach-mendez

Javier Mendez is now the supercoach to the #1 and #2 pound for pound fighters in the world. AKA has always housed the top guys in the world and that is a direct result of the coaching at AKA. So, Mendez hopped on the Real Quick Podcast and talked about (almost) everything AKA. I say ‘almost’ because apparently Mendez has been muzzled about everything regarding Khabib Nurmagomedov.

From our YouTube:

“AKA Founder and head coach, Javier Mendez, joins the guys to talk about what all the team is up to, discusses their upcoming fights, and everything else AKA. Javier has a wealth of knowledge, as he has built UFC Champions out of Khabib Nurmagomedov, Daniel Cormier, Cain Velasquez, and Luke Rockhold. Having Javier on the show is always entertaining, as Javier was Mike’s longtime coach and friend, as well as now business partner.”

RQMS EP 37: UFC 229 Aftermath & Bellator Grand Prix Picks

rqms-aftermath-bellator-grand-prix-picks

Episode 39 of the Real Quick Podcast is here and the guys have a variety of subjects to cover right now. So, of course, the guys explore it all! Mike Swick and Marc Bogutzki cover things like the UFC 229 fracas to the upcoming Bellator Grand Prix.

From the Real Quick YouTube channel.

“The guys discuss the recent altercation that happened post-fight at UFC 229, breakdown the Bellator Grand Prix matches this weekend, discuss Daniel Cormier fighting Derrick Lewis, translate the meeting between President Putin and Khabib, then go on a rollercoaster of topic twists that span from Thailand to Saddam’s Palace in Iraq. They are not analysts, but they are also not the biased, one-sided journalist that fill the internet. No punches pulled yet again.”

The breakdowns are on point as always and it’s another hit episode!

UFC 229 recap. Conor, Khabib, and the ugly scene after their fight

recap-conor-khabib-ugly-scene

It was an ugly scene last night at UFC 229 after the main event between Conor McGregor and Khabib Nurmagomedov. After putting on an incredible display of skill and ass kickery, Khabib and his crew had a lot more gas in their tanks. A melee ensued and everyone in the sport had an opinion and pointed fingers.

Our own Mike Swick had one of the better opinions on the situation. He and co-host Marc Bogutzki let them be known on the Real Quick Podcast. Check out the UFC 229 recap and see what the boys had to say about how everything went down.

RQMS EP 36: Khabib Week! This is a crazy and very intense episode!

khabib-week-crazy-intense-episode

Episode 36 has dropped and it’s literally the most intense episode to date. Usually, our hosts Mike Swick and Marc Bogutzki are all about jokes on top of jokes. However, the first half of episode 36 isn’t about the funny. In fact, it’s downright heated and Swick’s ire is directed at Jon Jones and his recent actions towards the sport and his brother, Daniel Cormier.

Normally, you need to poke Swick to make sure he’s awake; He’s that mellow. When discussing Jon Jones’ recent diss on GSP and Daniel Cormier, as well as Jones’ actions pertaining to cheating in the sport and his social media presence… Not to give a lot away, but Swick is not a fan of the way Jones does things.

Mike and Marc then tackle the UFC 229 card and give their predictions. Of course, when it comes to Conor McGregor vs Khabib Nurmagomedov the guys drop a ton of knowledge. Being that ‘THEY ARE AKA’ you already know who they are picking to win the fight. It’s ‘How’ Khabib wins the fight that is so intriguing.

Again, this is another great podcast with laughs, tears, anger, and happiness.

Please subscribe to the Real Quick Podcast on YouTube. It will change your life for the better. We promise.

You thought they were gone? Nope! The RQMS Podcast is back w / EP 35.

thought-gone-nope-rqms-podcast-back

Mike and Marc, we thought you were gone. Nope! Busy with life and reshuffling the pieces, Mike Swick and Marc Bogutzki are back in your lives with Episode #35 of The Real Quick Podcast. Trust me, they haven’t lost any of their humor or ability to tell stories and split your sides with laughter.

“The guys are finally back and explain the hiatus. Mike discusses his trip to Las Vegas to film the Ultimate Fighter Season One Reunion show and his trip to Russia, then the guys share views on the Khabib vs Conor press conference and fight breakdown and the Eminem diss track against MGK.

The guys then talk about Dan Bilzerian visiting Phuket and the gym, and how they all ended up in the Red Light district one crazy and wild night. Marc also sheds light on “Mike the Chicken”, who lived 18 months without a head. True story. What else would you expect from these guys?

The show is getting revamped and will now be better than ever! Stay tuned!”

The guys are not only back, but they are back and will be putting out a LOT more content. Time to get excited, kids.

Forever living the dream, Dan Bilzerian joins Mike Swick at AKA Thailand

forever-living-dream-bilzerian-swick-thailand

Dan Bilzerian is forever living the dream. The billionaire playboy travels the world, flanked by beautiful women wherever he goes. His latest stop was to visit our namesake, Mike Swick, at AKA Thailand.

Bilzerian and his army of beauties invaded Thailand and as usual, everything was first class for ‘The King of Instagram’. Whether it was restaurants or his accommodations, his daily experiences are something that we common folk want to have ONCE in our lifetime.

Bilzerian has been training at AKA Thailand while out there and according to Swick, “He’s been killing it”.

Check out his Thailand stories on his IG. He’s even crazy like Swick and visiting the ‘cobra pits’. Unlike Mike, Bilzerian doesn’t actually go in and risk his life.

Our namesake, Mike Swick, returning to Training Center for TUF 1 reunion

namesake-mike-swick-returning-center

Our namesake here at MikeSwick.com made his way to Las Vegas for a TUF 1 reunion and viewing of Dana White’s Contender Series. The TUF 1 cast went back to the gym that started the MMA explosion; Some of them for the first time since they were on the show. Many of the guys went in different directions after TUF and they came back to share what each of them had been up to. Even the coaches, Chuck Liddell and Randy Couture, came back.

The boys were up to their old tricks, talking smack and busting balls. The three fighters missing from the reunion were Josh Koscheck, Lodune Sincaid, and Jason Thacker. Only Diego Sanchez remains, as the sole contracted UFC fighter. Everyone else has moved on to other things.

Aside from reuniting with the guys, Swick was able to watch the DWCS and chill with legends like Big Nog. Many from the first cast of TUF, became legends in their own right. Basically, the reunion was just a bunch of UFC pioneers hanging together after living out their dreams. It’s safe to say that these guys had no idea what their impact on the sport would be.

That entire first season should be inducted into the UFC Hall of Fame.

Hey, Mike Swick’s hero (The Rock). Who would you never want to fight?

hero-rock-fight

If you are an avid MikeSwick.com reader or fan of the Real Quick podcast, you know that Swick has one man that he calls, hero. That man is none other than Dwayne ‘The Rock’ Johnson. The Rock is out promoting his new movie, “Skyscraper” and one of the questions that he was asked, was who he would NOT want to face in the boxing ring.

As it turns out, the man asking the question was Turkish and the Rock knows his combat sports. So, who wouldn’t The Rock want to fight?

Turkish smashing machine, Gokhan Saki.
