From training with a “Cowboy” to fighting on the grandest stage of them all, Jonavin “Spyder” Webb takes on his biggest challenge to date… Being the first ever guest on Art of MMA: Conversations! Conversations is our brand new podcast series that gives us a chance to talk to fighters, promoters and MMA personalities from around the globe in a format that gives us more time than we have on our MMA roundtable style show, Art of MMA: The Podcast. This gives us time to hear their stories and interact in a new way.
We have had the privilege of talking to #JonavinWebb several times in the history of Art of MMA, but this was our first chance to sit him down on a podcast and hear his story. He talks about some of the insane events at the BMF Ranch out in New Mexico and training with Cowboy Cerrone, Paul Felder, Frankie Edgar and many more. The fights from being a young kid in CFFC to the grand stage of the UFC and now focusing on training the next level of elite fighters like current UFC rising star Sean Brady!
“Fighting is a greedy sport. You gotta be greedy and you gotta be focused and you can’t really have too many things going on in your head besides fighting.” ~ Jonavin Webb
It was awesome to be able to catch up and hear more in-depth all that Jonavin has been through and his journey. His commitment to his family and kids and being in a new place mentally. Putting more energy into coaching and training the future of the sport. And while he still competes in grappling events, you just never know when he might get that itch again!
So sit back and enjoy our conversation with the “Spyder” Jonavin Webb.
