You mean Marty?
Hes the first Marty.
I'm pretty sure he grew up and went to high school in my neck of the woods
What part of nebraska are you from?
I grew up in a suburb of Omaha.
Edit: Nevermind. Profile says you're from Texas. My bad. Should really read before I post.
What suburb? I've lived in Dundee, Omaha, and Bellevue.
Marty "Nebraska Playboy" Usman
From his Wiki page:
" Usman and his family immigrated to the United States when he was 8 years old. He started wrestling in his sophomore year in high school, at Bowie High School in Arlington, Texas. Because Usman's wrestling coach at the time had trouble pronouncing his first name Kamarudeen, he was given the nickname "Marty" while on the team and it stuck with him during his amateur wrestling career. After compiling a 53-3 record in high school wrestling, Usman wrestled alongside Jon Jones at the senior national tournament before leaving for college."
How is he from Nebraska? He just went to college there. He's from Texas and now lives in Florida.
I went to university in Portsmouth but I don't tell anyone that I'm from Portsmouth, I just went to university there.
Seen some Nebrasken Coeds take it like champs. Does that count?
I like Nebraska flag, so green
