I would like to thank Gladiator MMA for having me to their facility as of recent. Also for having sponsored me in my last fight in California. Gladiator seems to really be a gym that puts there fighters in the position to be successful. It takes more than just training yourself to be a successful combat artist. By having a team, trainers, and proper training facility this puts a fighter in a position to win. Gladiator in Brighton has all of the above. A full size cage, Matt space, weight area and trainers. I’m now going to be teaching seminars for the school, and helping prepare the fight team for there upcoming events. Tim Farr is an up and coming middleweight who represents the school whom has a lot of potential in the sport. With the Pro sanctioning of MMA now in michigan a lot of doors are going to open for fighters in the state. I’m anxious to see what is to come in the next year from Gladiator MMA and its event the Gladiatorial games.

I would like to thanks the promoters from the Gladiatorial Games for having me a part of their recent show at the Rock Financial Center. This event premiered some of the best amateur talent from all around the state of Michigan. It was an action packed night of fights that fans seemed really to enjoy. This event had multiple titles fight some of which ended in upsets. The venue really gave some of the upcoming fighters a feel for what it would be like fighting in a professional organization. Many of the young fighters we saw competing arte the future of the sport in our state. Promoters took up a collection during an intermission for a fighter whom was injured during another organizations event. This fighter was competing for a rival organization and fractured his orbital bone. The promoter would not cover the medical expenses there were for the necessary operation. Luckily the event organizers were able to donate funds for his operation to be completed. Overall I have to say that it was one of the best run amateur events I have been a part of.

When buyers want an agent who will fight for them without backing down, they go to Dori Gulick. The Sales Associate with RE/MAX Platinum in Brighton, Mich., has a reputation for being a hard hitter in negotiations for her buyer clients – and she rarely loses.
The same is true in the mixed martial arts ring. Nicknamed “The Dominator,” Gulick got into the sport, known as MMA, three years ago as a way to get into shape and learn self defense. MMA is a combat sport in which competitors use interdisciplinary forms of fighting that include jiu-jitsu, judo, karate, boxing, kickboxing, wrestling and other disciplines to their strategic and tactical advantage in a supervised match.
What started out as merely interest has become a full-blown passion for Gulick.
“The sport came naturally to me, and I look forward to fights like I look forward to Christmas,” says Gulick, who has been in real estate for more than 15 years and now incorporates MMA into her marketing. “The feeling I get is a huge lift. There’s nothing like getting in that cage with my gloves on and beating an opponent. It’s similar to what I do for my clients; I go into negotiations ready to fight for them and I won’t back down.”
Gulick, who trains several hours each week for fights, candidly shares her passion for mixed martial arts on her Web site. Many of Gulick’s leads come from the Web site and her blog, in which she uses a lot of fighting analogies and photos from her fights to drive home important market news. Her edgy appeal and promise to fight for her clients’ best interests (but not literally, of course) has helped Gulick get listings over other agents who have been in business longer.
“Initially, I was worried how people would react to it,” says Gulick, who has shown up to listing presentations and showings with black eyes and stitches in the past. “But I find that people aren’t intimidated; they love that I’m a strong woman with a passion I incorporate into my real estate business. It makes me stand out from other agents.”
And stand out she does. At 41, Gulick is a single mother of three children and a full-time agent. And she’s a cancer survivor, having beaten thyroid cancer in 2005.
If other agents have passions outside real estate, she says, they shouldn’t be afraid to share those interests with clients through their business.
“People don’t want to work with a boring paper pusher,” Gulick says. “Show clients that you have hobbies and interests, and that you’re not afraid to share them. Not only does it set you apart, but it gives you energy to devote time to your business without getting burnt out on real estate. You only have one lifetime; live your life, throw it down and smile.”
Dori has fought in Gladiatorial Games I, II & III.
I finally went to a Gladiatorial Games Cage Fight. They brought Michigan Cage Fighting to a whole new level. They had everything from great amateur cage fighters, to ring girls, t-shirt stands, prizes, awesome announcing and much more. There were 9 fights with two championship fights. Plus, A GIRL FIGHT!!!! It was awesome. That lasted 3 rounds. By the second round they were both covered in blood. I recommend this to everyone in Michigan that likes cage fighting. It was probably one of the best shows in Michigan. I hear they have a fourth fight coming up. It’s at the Rock Financial Showplace in Novi, Michigan on December 5th.
