    I have a pretty diverse training program but its a mixture of high endurance cardio thru track and field, swimming, high endurance cardio circuits but honestly most of my conditioning comes from rolling, sparring, pads.

    my record seems to love rnc so i will go with rnc. striking technique, i don't have a preference , i aim to like any that get the job done but being southpaw, the cross is important.

    hahaha in my head i was handing out couple hundred as i looked at everyone but in reality just to the volunteers . we were huge www fans and use to plan matches all the time. we even had a hardcore belt passed around lol rules was you could show up wherever whenever but with a ref and win the belt, so onetime i got home from school and someone knocked on my door, and my dad ws drinking tea upstairs and some kid dragged me to the front lawn , stunnered me , had his friend ref and won the belt lol

    What? That's freaking awesome! How long did that take? Did the studio give you any souvenirs?

    2 part question:

    1) Have you ever just wanted to disappear?

    2) what's your favourite Lethal Weapon (it should be 1 or 4)?

    I would have to say the weight cut aspect of it , and also possibly the financial side of it. i think fighters are some of the most well versed complete athletes, sacrifice so much , go through so much per fight etc and aren't compensated as such. many become slaves to the trade and thats all they remain , unless you understand business , i think many will remain in that spot and never even make possibly 6 figures thru their entire career .

    Same here! Drake is a modern day GOAT.

    Weston Road Flows is probably my favourite song of his.

    this was a sort of new one too
