to date! I could literally die tomorrow and have no regrets and feel absolutely fulfilled with what I have accomplished in my life time.

It hasn't sunk in yet… but I am just feeling a wave of relief knowing I fulfilled my promise to myself and in doing so apparently was able to make UFC History in the process. This is the greatest end to the documentary we have been filming. I can't imagine any better way to show how never giving up, never quitting, and doing everything it takes to fulfill your goals to reach your dreams is possible with hard work, dedication, and perseverance. It seems like this story is straight fiction. What a crazy ride this has all been!

Just know how much I appreciate you guys! Thank you so much for all the support throughout the years. Through all the highs and lows. You guys have always been there. I am forever grateful! This community is one of the greatest things MMA has ever created!

Long Live The D!!!!

I mean The UG! Lol

We'll F—in Live As 2 Kings! 😀
