He's been with Renzo's for a while but is just a few fights into his MMA career. Scary good/strong.

^^Steve Williams has been around awhile with Renzo hasn't he? Or am I thinking of someone else. Is he just starting to to fight or something?

Dave is a bad dude. Whenever I roll with him and get a little something (advance position, sweep, takedown, etc.) part of me thinks "I hope I didn't just piss him off and he dislocates my arm".He's the nicest guy in the world though and a *way* legit bb (was scary as a purple). Pretty new to mma but has the world by the balls.Others to watch out of Renzo's are Sapo (who just fucked up Lutter) and Steve Williams.

I'm starting to think the UFC only signs people that have connections.
