    • How much I hate getting hit in the face
    • The most heart-warming experience he

    Jon is awesome! We are 110% behind what he's doing with Tap Cancer Out. We got to meet for an interview last time he was in Vegas. It's great to see him get more exposure through your site too.

    Nice, I will check this out. "Tap cancer Out" just came up as one thing people dislike about the TapOut clothing brand in another thread.

    Do you have the link? Anyone hating on a very selfless well run charity is crazy.

    Reread what I wrote. A thread in f12 talking about TAPOUT clothing and some people said they dislike this clothing brand because of the legal battle between TAPOUT clothing and Tap cancer Out.

    Thanks for all of the bumps and support!

    That's when I picked up their story too, when I heard about Tapout having it out with a BJJ charity for wanting to call themselves Tap Out Cancer.

    Sorry for the mixup. Yea, since Tapout became a big corporation they lost touch with the community in some ways. Screwing Jon over was one of them.

    But like all good causes Tap Cancer Out kept on and is only growing stronger.

    Just recorded with Jon last night. Some awesome plans for 2013 coming up. I dont mean to hijack your thread or interview Brendan, we shout out your podcast with Jon in our show. It's such a good cause we want to help spread the word.
