I want to be an on-air personality for the UFC
Member Since: 8/24/02
There I said it.
As I teeter on the brink of retirement I realize more and more how much I want to stay involved with the sport that's given me everything in my life. And I told Dana when I first signed with the UFC, I will never fight anywhere else. If the UFC cut me, that's it for me. It's because of the UFC and TUF that I've been able to provide for my daughter for the past 6 years.
That's where I want to stay.
My qualifications? Well, I've been a fighter for the past 14 years. I've trained with some of the legends of the sport and even cornered them for some of the greatest fights in UFC history. I was there when the UFC went from 5 shows a year to being in every home in America.
And, I know my ish.
Plus, I've been a public speaker since I was 7 years old, standing up in Church and giving Bible readings. Last year I spoke at a TEDx conference where it was me, a mike and 300 business people for 18 minutes. And now I travel around the country speaking on behalf of my XLIF back surgery that game me my life back.
Not to mention I hosted my own tv show on Comcast called American Cage Fighter. It was only broadcast in Nor Cal but was really well received and replayed every day of the week.
Do I have your support?
