I just want to apologize for such a shitty performance at King of the Cage last weekend. I went into the fight with a minor sinus infection but had no idea what was in store. The day of the fight I was warming up in the cage for a few minutes felt decent and ready to go. Me and Travis were called in the back to see the doc and I spit up some flem but it was a handful of blood. I thought it was due to my sinus infection and just blew it off. I have never been so CRIPPLED IN A FIGHT in my life! I could not even move in the second round. My chest felt like it was going to explode. I came home Sunday and seen my physician today and he said I had altitude sickness. I have never even heard of this before and had no idea. This was the worst fight of my career and I truly feel embarrassed.

Thanks for my sponsors Full Tilt and TCB for there support.

Yah, you didn't look yourself, and your opponent was really good. Good luck in your next fight.

I don't wanna threadjack, but Kette Dornbusch was the fucking man while I was there!  Wow, that was a blast from the past.  He was an upperclassmen in my Freshman squadron.  Cool Campus Rads!  I got into a world of trouble my Freshman year and he always had my back and also had the rest of the ball players in our squadrons back.  We got out of a lot of bullshit being on the football team and it seemed like some of the upperclassmen would have it out for the freshman ball players.  I imagine it's like that at all the service academies. To answer your question.  Yes, I did play with him.  Did I mention, Kette was the fucking MAN!

I could tell something was not right. In the second round when you had his back and you fell taking the back it just did not look like yourself... I told my wife I thought you had the flu or something when I watched the replay..
