    No wonder UFC loves to get these guys. You'd fight for peanuts too if you grew up here. Pretty sure that if you look closely enough at the hill, there is a door going into the side of the hill. These folks are quite literally living like cavemen.

    edit: well, ignore the huge image warning: Sherdog automatically resized it (mods: if you see this, feel free to edit out the warning in the title). I recommend clicking on this link to see the full photo:

    As he types on his keyboard, on a desk, in his air conditioned cubicle with high speed Wi-Fi. Piss off.

    That's not even a bad one. I've seen far worse in Guatemala, and know Brazil has much worse.

    I do have a high speed Wi-Fi, a Macbook, a desk, a whole room for myself. But still my neighborhood looks even worse than this pic. Everywhere looks like this in Turkey, google it if you want.

    Really like your posts on Sherdog by the way
