James Krause Earns “Fight of the Night” & “Submission of the Night”

It’s amazing how fast things can change. Less than a month ago, James Krause was working out and staying focused for a fight he didn’t even know existed in his near future. He just knew when the call came he’d be ready. To prepare for a fight without a known opponent, forces you to focus on every skill with an intensity level that is hard for most to comprehend.
Striking, grappling, power, endurance, speed…you just don’t know which piece of the training will prove to be your biggest asset when the time comes.

When James Krause accepted the fight against Sam Stout, just two weeks ago, he knew he had to be strategic. He knew a veteran like Sam Stout was going to be a tough fight. But Krause was ready. Years of training, maturing and finding his own zone made them a solid match. It was an exciting fight to watch and brought us to the final seconds before Krause submitted Stout, catching the UFC veteran in a guillotine from off his back. Stout tapped to the choke at 4:47 of the final round. It was the second-to-latest fight to end by submission in UFC history.

“I hurt him badly in the first round with those kicks and knees but, with two weeks’ notice for the fight and with him being so hard to finish, I knew I couldn’t afford to go crazy to try to finish him,” Krause said. “I wanted to finish him, but I couldn’t chase him all around the Octagon hoping to land a bomb. I had to apply smart pressure. He hasn’t been stopped since 2006, and this is a big win for me.”

It was a huge win for Krause and his boys back in Kansas City. Not only did Krause submit Stout, but he earned Fight of the Night and Submission of the Night. The post-show interviews and the interaction between Stout and Krause during the event add to Krause’s mass-audience appeal. He’s humble and gracious. We are certain to see more of Krause in the UFC and we look forward to it. Krause is a great example for the sport of MMA. He’s a proven athlete with time on his side. Some people are calling him an overnight sensation. Some are coining him a Cinderella story. But for those who see and work with Krause each day at Grindhouse Gym, they know this is reward for hard work, dedication and years of training.

Check out this video of James Krause training in February 2013. He’s using the Seven American Style Boxing Gloves and Brian Davidson is wearing the headcam using the innovative Seven Give-N-Take.

Why Wear Grappling Gear?

We asked Drew Dober to talk to us about the benefits of using grappling gear in training. Here’s what he had to say.

SEVEN: Is there a downside to training without wearing protective gear?
DOBER: I know some athletes do it, but gear is a very important part of keeping you safe and your body well enough to train often. It prevents unnecessary damage to your body and protects you from injuries, which gives you an opportunity to get into the gym everyday.

SEVEN: We know that safety is one reason to wearing training gear, but are there any other reasons?
DOBER: The weight of the gloves actually helps increase your speed. Plus, when you have confidence in your equipment, it gives you less to think about while training in such a demanding sport.

SEVEN: Some athletes say it hinders movement or gets in the way – would you agree?
DOBER: yes in a way. Weighing you down and hindering your movement are also benefits to wearing equipment because as you get use to wearing equipment it will help make you faster, stronger, and more mobile.

PRODUCT SPOTLIGHT: Grappling Shin

Seven’s Grappling Shin Guard is noticeably different the minute you see it. The Seven Grappling Shin Guard answers the problem all athletes have with shin guards – shifting and repositioning.

Seven Fightgear Grappling Shin Guard

The design includes a neoprene stretch fabric on the back that covers the entire leg so it slips on like a sock and fits like a glove — eliminating the problem with shifting. It’s lightweight and made of synthetic leather so it provides excellent protection for the shins and calves. It’s also cooler to wear due to the high quality moisture wicking material throughout the interior. Combine it with the Seven Open Face Headgear and Hybrid Training Glove for complete training protection.
