Designer Q&A with John Howard

Southern Home (SH): What is your first memory of being in a garden or loving the outdoors?. John Howard (JH): I was born in Savannah, and as a very young child, I remember going to Forsyth Park, which has a beautiful Victorian-era cast-iron fountain, big live oak trees, azaleas, bulbs, all kinds of things like that. We had lots of fun playing there. And then my family moved to Atlanta when I was four. Our house was pretty modest, but we had a garden with blooming shrubs and borders. As I got older, I cut the grass and enjoyed doing yard work. That probably had a big influence on me, although funny enough, I don’t like to do that stuff now.

5 Things You Might Not Know About John Howard

After nearly two decades of hand-to-hand combat, John Howard still musters the motivation to strap on the gloves and climb into the cage. The Wai Kru MMA mainstay will make his under-the-radar Eagle Fighting Championship debut when he zeroes in on undefeated Russian prospect Ramazan Kuramagomedov in an EFC 44 welterweight showcase on Friday at the FLX Arena in Miami. Howard, 38, has alternated wins and losses in each of his past four outings. He last competed under the Xtreme MMA banner, as he wound up on the wrong side of a unanimous decision against Tyler Ray at XMMA 3 “Vice City” on Oct. 23.

John Howard Praises Eagle FC’s Unique Approach to Weight Classes

If it were up to Ultimate Fighting Championship alum John Howard, mixed martial arts weight classes would have a different shape. According to Howard (29-17-1, 0-0 Eagle FC), promotions should reduce the current gap in the heavier classes. “Doomsday” advocates for a more uniform distribution by separating each weight category 10 pounds from another. Howard will soon debut in Khabib Nurmagomedov’s Eagle FC, where he is facing Ramazan Kuramagomedov in a welterweight clash on the upcoming Eagle FC 44 card. The particularity of Eagle FC’s welterweights is that the division's limit is set at 175 pounds instead of the traditional 170. The reason behind this is that Eagle has introduced the 165-pound division in between the conventional lightweights and welterweight, and moved up five pounds the limit of the latter.
