TXMMA Technique of the Week – Thanksgiving 2011 Edition with Renan Chavez and Daniel “The Pit” Pineda





HOUSTON, TX, November 24, 2011 – They say Thanksgiving should be spent with family, as a moment to give appreciation and count our blessings. Well TXMMA.com certainly appreciates all of our readers and we count each and every one of you as family so we wanted to do something special this year.

This morning, several fighters from the Houston area converged at 4OZ Fight Club for a little turkey day rolling. In a funny coincidence, this group included several fighters (and one TXMMA.com writer) that were all allegedly “at the grocery store.” Nonetheless, space was made for much eating later on today.

As part of this session, Zion MMA owner and instructor to many Renan Chavez took a moment to demonstrate a special Turkey Day edition of the TXMMA Technique of the Week along with 4OZ Fighter and Legacy Fighting Championship 145/155 champion Daniel “The Pit” Pineda.

In the following vignette, Daniel and Renan demonstrate the sequence in which Pineda was able to secure victory and defend his belt against WEC veteran Frank Gomez at Legacy Fighting Championship 7 on HDNet.

For more from Renan Chavez, please visit the Zion Mixed Martial Arts on the web or check him out in person at 1306 FM 1092 Ste #504 in Missouri City, TX.
