I was 23, I think, when I got the “Immortal” tattoo. My friends were joking around about me being immortal and stuff. And it crossed my mind—man, that’d look cool if it was tattooed across my stomach. It was somewhat inspired by Phil Anselmo, the lead singer of Pantera—he had “Unscarred” across his stomach. It just went from there. It was pretty simple, it was pretty hardass-sounding, but there’s more meaning to me than just my friends joking around.

Originally, I didn't even want it to be my nickname. But it was already tattooed on my stomach, and the promoter for one of my first fights gave it to me—he pretty much wouldn’t let me use any other nickname. I was kind of pissed off, but then it stuck. It’s grown with me. We can’t forget where we come from, and it’s a constant reminder of where I came from. I’ve definitely grown into it.

When it comes to the OD’ing and everything, I’m happy it inspires people and that’s always good, but I definitely don't want to be known for that. I don't want to be known as the guy who made it who OD’d. I just want to be known as the guy who made it. To me, it doesn't seem like something as special as it’s made out to be.
