    I always thought big things would come for him.

    Koscheck vs Rumble . . . talk about catching a tiger by the tail!

    the fact that Koscheck even survived a round in that fight is a testament to his chin and his cage iq, but to choke him out controversy or not is a fucking miracle.

    He probably did that by just eating like a normal human being. Dude is 6'2 with a frame to carry 220+.

    I think it was for this fight on one of the Dana vlogs where he went to Rumble in the locker room and said "So what you 220 tonight *har-de-har*" and Rumble said he was under 190 because he liked to fight light, that always made me chuckle but I can't find the video.
