The sport of MMA has plenty of stories to motivate and we have even heard a few of those stories over the years here on FIST-ta-CUFF Radio. However when it comes to the story of Garrett “G-Money” Holeve this is the true story of heart, determination, and a will to never give up. Garrett’s name has been in the news as of recent and ESPN even did a very nice piece, but it wasn’t because Garrett’s size, his future as a legend in the sport, or the fact that he is knocking out opponents, it’s because Garrett defines what it means to be a fighter. Holeve suffers from Rheumatoid Arthritis, a painful disease that leads to inflammation of joints and surrounding tissues, but refuses to let that or the fact that he was born with Down’s syndrome, a chromosomal condition from stopping his dream. Garrett has a dream of being a fighter and has already started making that dream a reality. We will talk with Garrett about his love for MMA, teaching children at his branch of ATT, and much more.
Garrett’s father Mitch will be joining us on the show as well. I am looking forward to talking with Mitch about the decision to not only back his son in his dream but the support and hate that has come from that decision. Mitch has helped Garrett obtain his own gym and is the one who challenged his sons to attend an MMA class with him (Garrett was the only one who accepted the challenge). The discussion that his wife and he had to decide to back Garrett, and much more.
