MMA Fighter Heinish Finds His Way

MMA Fighter Heinish Finds His Way

2X State Champ Excels on Fight Circuit
Before ascending to his present status as one of the nation’s top up-and-coming mixed martial arts fighter, Ian “The Hurricane” Heinish followed an uncertain path to greatness. A two-time Colorado state champ at 171 & 189 pounds in 2005-06 for Ponderosa, Ian was offered a full ride to wrestle in college. On May 4th in Vail, sponsored by Xtreme Pro Apparel, Ian will fight for the Legacy Fighting Alliance (LFA) middleweight championship.

However, a series of poor choices first landed him in a foreign prison. Stripped of his privileges, forced to adapt to a different culture and language, needing to rediscover himself while incarcerated, Ian turned to boxing and religion. Helped by a relationship with God, Ian now asserts that “my purpose is to inspire through my testimony” having learned that “circumstances do not dictate the person you are.” Ultimately, Ian believes that “you are never too far gone” to get your life under control.

As one who has successfully crossed over from a wrestling background, Ian tells that he is successful through being able to “control the fight” by taking the most advantageous position, either on his feet or on the fighting surface. Wrestling has contributed to his mental toughness; it is “the bridge between striking, wrestling, and grappling.”

To excel as a mixed martial arts fighter, however, Ian counsels that one must put in “years and years of work” and be prepared to adapt technique such as learning to shoot with the head on the inside “so you won’t get put in a jiu-jitsu guillotine. For those first making the transition from wrestling, he advises that they “start boxing in an MMA gym.”

A rising star on the LFA circuit, Ian hopes to advance to the MMA ranks with a middleweight championship. Now 9-1 overall, if he reaches 10-1, then the next part of God’s plan would be in effect. Knowing what he knows now about life choices and what he might do differently, it is also clear that Ian looks back on his past as circumstances which helped him redefine his path to greatness.

Andrew Alirez on the Rise



After winning the match, I asked him how he felt about the win, and having to face the Indiana state champ again the following day, and there was nothing but humble determination,

“It felt really good. It’s getting me closer to my goal of becoming an Olympian. I’ll definitely be going in tomorrow a lot more confident, every win I get better, every match I get better.”

It’s this depth of character and ambition that are exceptional for a wrestler his age. Expect to see big things from Andrew Alirez in the RMN Events 2015-2015 and beyond.

Andrew Alirez is a multitalented young wrestler beyond his years in experience and character.  As a 3rd generation boxer who’s only been boxing for 2 years, and already has a record of 10 and 0 with a Ring Side Championship under his belt, it’s evident that Alirez lets his natural athleticism do most of the talking.

When I asked him about the transition into boxing he said -“I think if you’ve wrestled you can do any other sport because of how demanding wrestling is mentally and physically”. If this wasn’t coming from a tested athlete I may not have believed that statement but Andrew has proven himself time after time. From national Boxing tournaments, to Rocky Mountain Nationals in Denver, he has gone up against some of the best and come out on top.

This past weekend at UFC Ultimates was no exception. Alirez was calm, cool, and collected after his match against Indiana State Champ Colton Cummings. He’s a 14- year-old 8th grader, but you wouldn’t be able to tell that purely from his performance. Alirez hung on for the entire match, unwavering in the face of a fierce competitor.
