    he just gained a lot of respect in my book. humility is a vastly under appreciated quality.

    I look forward to him fighting constantly (no pun intended). This boosts his character imo so now I'm definitely more of a fan.

    Yeah, the countdown made me a bigger fan. I like how he said "I wasn't good enough for the TUF show" instead of the typical "I was sick, cracked skull, torn knee, broken arm".

    Exactly right. I dig that. Admits he wasn't ready, decided to get better instead.

    Soft spoken.

    Pete Spratt was also offered a fight against Matt Hughes back in the day, but declined because he didn't feel he was ready for it. It takes a genuinely humble person to do that.

    Humble sure, but he looks like a thug straight out of D block.

    The most improved fighter I can remember in a while too. He's a completely different fighter than he was back then... pretty crazy. Saw him fight twice already live and I've been a fan since.

    The guy is winning me over, however, Boetsch fan first. So after this fight I can root for him, haha.
