If they wanted to pursue a career in MMA, yes or no?
My kids can do whatever, I expose them to tonnes of different things. My kids do MMA, they snowboard, they skateboard, they play football, they do everything. So I expose them to a lot of things so whatever they love they'll end up doing anyway. I couldn't care less, as long as they're happy.
And how about you, what turned you from fighter to promoter?
Because I was a better promoter than fighter. I woke up one day and realised I sucked as a fighter.
What's it like being point of call for hundreds of athletes around the world?
Think about this right, I deal with 475 of the toughest dudes in the world, they all have egos, they all have agendas, so every day that I wake up there's some bull***t going on. I deal with guys who make millions of dollars and some that make hundreds of dollars, but the one thing that always stands true is that they're human beings. They've all got problems, family problems, there's so many different things to deal with.
