Like other fighters? Or do you me the forums? I was referring to him as a person. I wonder if he has ever acted like an asshole in a bar or anything

Expect to see some good guys out of his gym this year notably Josh Tyler is a beast and Mitch Thompson is a tough young 22 yr old kid with a lot of amateur experience.
I love it

Gumby is definitely one of a kind. One of my all times favourites.

He won by RNC in the first round.

Carson Beebe won by TKO in the second.

The Johnson fight didn't happen, odd.

Woot! War gumby.

Interesting short interview from him, actually says that modern MMA guys are better athletes than they used to be, but that technique has actually seemingly gone sort of downhill in the past years.

If anyone knows about technique in MMA it's this man right here.

What do you think of the current state of the sport of MMA and how it has evolved over the past twenty years? What issues are most important to you in the sport?

JH: The sport today is quite a ways from where it was. The athletes are way better, but, honestly, I think the technique has gone downhill for the most part. There are, of course, exceptions, but for the most part, I think what we have today coming up are fighters who are well-conditioned, aggressive, and want to "bang." I hate that term. To me that sounds like, "I want to close my eyes and swing as hard as I can, and if he grabs me I’m going to hold on and wait for a standup." I love seeing guys who are skilled in whatever area they chose, but you have to go out there to finish fights. If you want to stand, fine, move forward and throw strikes. And when you get him hurt, go for it. You can’t fight backing up all the time. If you want to grapple, fine, move forward and take him down, pass his guard, and submit him. I don’t like seeing guys take someone down and then not try to pass or guys who say they want to stand but clearly have little to no footwork or defense.
