Swede UFC Fighter Alexander Gustafsson retired from MMA

Alexander Gustafsson Retires from MMA Mat After UFC Stockholm

UFC fighter Alexander Gustafsson has chosen to retire from the UFC and professional MMA fighting after his loss to veteran Anthony Smith at UFC Fight Night in Stockholm Sweden. The big Swede, who also goes by the nick-name “Lionheart”, simply stated that “the show is over, guys”. Gustafsson, 32, was submitted by Smith in the 4th round via rear naked choke. It is not a pretty way to go but much better then a straight knock-out.

Alexander Gustafsson was famous for being the only MMA fighter to take Jon Jones the distance. No only did he take him the distance but issued the only real scare to the UFC legends fighting career. Amongst other things Jone Jones tweeted after the retirement announcement “You held the division to a standard and made us better”, Jones said. After such a long MMA career it will be sad to see Alexander retire from the MMA mat. It is never a good think when a fighter of such calibre has to call it a day. Hopefully he will continue to play a roll in MMA in some form helping others hone their skills training MMA on the jigsaw mats of the future.

US Dollar and gym mats and jigsaw mats

AUD Falls After RBA Speech

The AUD traded down to the lowest level since January 4th after the RBA speech which indicated lower then expected growth and inflation. The Aussie was off against all of the majors except for the NZD. The RBA Governor Philip Lowe recalibrated interest rate expectations from mildly hawkish to neutral due a slow down in economic activity as a result of the down turn in the housing market and other international uncertainty. This despite the fact that iron ore is trading at highs and the price of oil is holding up. Both of which are major Australian commodities. Adding to the pain was a weak retail sales reading and a marked decline in imports and exports in December.

This resulting sell down for the currency might have the effect of impacting inflation which would be ironic considering it was one of the RBA’s chief concerns. The depreciation in the currency will have a effect on any new imports of jigsaw mats and MMA mats. Whilst we always endeavour to keep pricing down any persistent downward trend in the value of the AUD has an impact on pricing. This is true of all products imported into Australia. Jigsaw mats are imported from China as too are MMA mats.

Ezymats Introduce Tatami Jigsaw Mats

Ezymats are proud to announce that we have now added jigsaw mats with tatami finish to our range. If you are looking for a jigsaw mat with the traditional tatami surface then look no further. We have a shipment which is currently on the water and should be with us in the next three weeks. The first shipment will contain 40mm black / grey jigsaw mats with the tatami finish. We will then look at expanding that range in the further.

Eva mats and jigsaw mats are a very popular mat for training martial arts. Especially where people are looking for a traditional martial arts mat these mats are a great low cost alternative to regular tatami mats. Tatami mats are popular with martial arts like judo, jiu-jitsu, aikido etc. The tatami finish is more in keeping with what was used in Japan in the past. Although tatami mats are not made of grass as they were in the past they have retained the same finish. By manufacturing training mats with the tatami finish it is in keeping with this tradition.

It is believed that tatami jigsaw mats with continue to be popular in the future as practitioners of traditional martial arts flock back to their training roots. That said tatami jigsaw mats are not only popular with traditionalist. Some people find that the tatami surface offers them more grip then other finishes which is also a factor in their popularity.

Training with jigsaw and gym mats

Canadian David Lemieux Stop Gary O’Sullivan on the Mats

Canadian David Lemieux was victorious in the first round of his fight with Ireland’s Gary O’Sullivan after a savage left hook that left the Irish fighter on the eva mat.

Lemieux was not happy after O’Sullivan team’s talked trash in the lead up to the fight. He gave them an emphatic response with his victory.

In reponse to the trash talking Lemieux said “Don’t p*** me off guys,”. “I guess the message must be clear, I don’t like the trash talking at all that was done to me from O’Sullivan’s side so I kept it in me and I put to the right timing.

“I’m a respectable fighter, I come in the ring, I don’t disrespect my opponents, I train hard, I don’t trash talk and I respect that kind of behaviour.

“I felt great, I’m in superb shape. I gave you all a great knockout and a great event so I hope you’re all happy.”

Lemieux had previously fought Gennady Golovkin in 2015, said he’d like another shot at the champion. He would also like a shot at Alvarez he confirmed. Boxing ring generally use canvas but jigsaw mats are also used in some gym setups.

“I’m not rooting for anybody, I want to fight both of them,” he said in the post-bout interview.

“I think it’s a 50-50 chance fight. Canelo is an excellent boxer, so is Golovkin. It’s going to be an interesting fight”.

As it is Canelo went on to beat Golovkin via decision. In what was a very competitive fight the two of the three judges gave it to Canelo 115-113. It gave Alvarez the title via majority decision with the third judge scored it a 114-114 draw.

The fight was widely seen as a great fight with both fighters giving it their all. There is already talk of another Alvarez vs Canelo fight in the future to continue the rivalry. Both fighter would be wise to get back on their gym mats and training their hearts out until the next competition. Any fighter worth their weight in gold would spend most of their time training in their gym on their gym mats.
