We had the pleasure of meeting Pete ‘El Duro’ Williams and when he shared with us his relationship with cannabis we knew that it was worth sharing. Having used cannabis therapeutically for a number of years it was never something he was very open about. Not only is he agreeing to be a judge at our event, he’s open to sharing how he’s used cannabis in his life and why he feels it’s time to share it on our public forum.
UFC 2016 Hall of Fame inductee, Pete Williams, for his roundhouse kick knockout win against Mark Coleman in their 1998 bout. A member of the famous Lion’s Den fight team, founded by Ken Shamrock, Pete’s reputation precedes him.
“The time I had on the feet, I was using that low kick to kind of soften him up and set up the high kick,” Williams said. “After a few hard low kicks, I noticed he was trying to protect the leg, dropping his hands. I just kind of timed it.
“I threw a fake right hand and threw the kick instead, and it landed right on the money.” – quote courtesy of MMAJunkie.com
What followed was pure elation. Williams had shocked the world.
It will be interesting if Pete will gravitate towards the more fuely, funky strains or if his interests will steer him towards the fruity category. What will his observations be? We are really looking forward to finding out what Pete and the other judges think about the Top 16 entries of The Golden Tarp Awards and which he’ll deem the ultimate winner!
Join us this Saturday at 1pm on the Judges feed or you can catch him at 11am on the Panel feed for his session titled Brain Injury and Cannabis — A World Class Athlete Perspective.
