What have I been up to?

A lot of people have been asking me what I've been up to and what is coming up in the near future for Phillipe Nover. Well let me give everyone the low down. Since losing the finale I came back home and have pretty much been relaxing, kicking back, and enjoying the holiday season like a normal person. I put on a few pounds and took down the training sessions to about 3 to 4 sessions a week. I feel comfortable training a bit heavier. I also think I needed to do more relaxing than training in the start of the new year. What are my plans for 09? We'll first off I'm heading to the Philippines to visit some family and possibly train a bit out there. I can fight as early as March or April in the UFC but nothing is definite until I have an opponent lined up. When I come back from the Philippines, I'll be picking up my training at 8 to 10 sessions a week as usual. Thanks for checking in on me guys.

Hello Phillipe. My husband and I watched the whole TUF 8. We are avid MMA fans, and we were very happy to see another talented and complete Pinoy fighter. Really, your coming here in the Philippines? We hope that we can have our photos taken with you. Please respond to my message, so we would know where we could visit you or in which gym you will train so we can have our pics taken. More power to the Filipino Assassin, and we know we will see a lot more of you in the UFC. :)

NOVER!!! honestly all the 'asians' on TUF have been disappointing like Andy wang who was a great BJJ but did not show it at all then cried like a baby, but you damn when you fainted i was like 'figures' had to be the asian...but when you came back and OWNED everyone that came at you i was impressed, kinda disappointed on the finale but it coulda gone either way, grats on you though making the dream come true for some people, Hope to see you a top contender and Top 10 lightweights soon =]

Hi Phillipe, really looking forward to seeing you fight again.
Are you planning to take a leaf out of GSPs book and really work on your wrestling?
If you can get your wrestling up to the same level as your striking and submissions who knows what you could achieve. Good luck for the future man.
