Regardless of what has been said and what people think of me... I didnt get into training and fighting to make friends or win popularity contests.. I am more than willing to make this fight happen.. i have never turned down a fight and if this one if offered it will not be any differnt.. Dom has some legit skillz and i think a fight between us would be a good one.. and great for Michigan MMA ... i can only hope that this can actually happen in Michigan... there are soo many goood fights that could happen between michigan fighters.. hopefully by the fall Pro can finally fight in michigan...yes there are some good amatuers in MI... but the local fans have yet to see real pros get in there and show what they can really do.. it sickens me that any dude with a couple bucks can have his own AMautuer MMA show... its ruining MMA in Michigan... i can only hope for true MMA fans as well as my own sake... that soon mysself as well as the other pros can can fight close to home and u can see what real MMA is like...and of course u can all boo me in person

"I didnt get into training and fighting to make friends or win popularity contests"

Lucky for you, cause if you did what a failure you'd have turned out to be..

"I am more than willing to make this fight happen.. i have never turned down a fight and if this one if offered it will not be any differnt"

If it is "offered"?...LOL..You are issuing a challenge. Nobody offered it or would have..

"Dom has some legit skillz and i think a fight between us would be a good one.. and great for Michigan MMA"

Dont know about great for michigan MMA but it's nice to see ya give the dude his proper respect.


"I can only hope that this can actually happen in Michigan."

Not sure how it could, from my understanding kotc was not going to run in mt pleasant anymore..And that is pretty much the only pro show here (that you could both trust anyway)..


"it sickens me that any dude with a couple bucks can have his own AMautuer MMA show... its ruining MMA in Michigan"

On the contrary, it is paving the way for pro shows by educating the fans and building up a hunger within them for good shows....All mma is good mma..I think you are more upset that these tuf newbs are getting people's respect and you,a fighter who has seen real competition and has been in this for a decade, can't get noticed at all because you are a pro and pro mma doesnt exist here. Meanwhile, the posters you see at the gas station are glorifying an amatuer with 3 fights!!!..

 A legitimate gripe, but ya can't have it all at once..That day is coming..
 Soon as Dana or the like wants to run in Detroit..
It's going to take that kind of $$ and interest to get it done though.


"i can only hope for true MMA fans as well as my own sake... that soon mysself as well as the other pros can can fight close to home and u can see what real MMA is like...and of course u can all boo me in person"


I hope for that too man...And I would boo you like crazy!!!  *hisss hisss*

I agres that gettin the sport seen is good... but there are some good well ran amatuers shows then there are some that are terrible.. horrible matchmaking.. shitty venues... and dude thats shouldnt be fighting in a bar room let alone a MMA Show.... honestly my #1 gripe is... now that MMA and UFC particularly is so popular.. every karate,tae kwon do..aikido.. whateever...think they can Teach mma and if makes me sick... Any amatuers that actually wanna train mma shuold get in touch with a real gym and or team and go about it that way.. i am sorry.. but your karate instructor.. cannot show u what to do.. lol.....I might not always agree with his opinions but Quincy is definetly qauified in my opinion to get guys ready to fights... but most "MMA" intractors in michigan are a hoax

 Michigan mma is like the early ufc days in the 90's...Nobody knows what works yet here or anything about it really..Which is why these hood acting dumbasses are at every show throwing karate kicks and closing their eyes whilke they punch only to get taken down and subbed by low level blue belts...However, this is how it has to grow, it's how it grew as a sport nationallu and how it will on the local level as well....And while I get what you mean about how some shows are, they are necessary in the education process of the fans here..Ya cant have yin without yang..so to speak..They wont know a good show unless they see some bad ones..They cant know skill or even want to see better skill til they understand the game..

 The more mma they see, the more they understand it, the more they will demand top level shows..Right now though, they are still new to the whole thing..Most people dont even realize the shows in michigan are amatuer..The amatuers here hold pro status in people's minds because they are that clueless still as to what this game is all about..It was banned so long Michigan is full of mma cavemen..

 p.s. I drew ya a toon jake..

Oh and as for all these school popping up with mma on the building..It is fucking surreal to me..Same people years ago where preaching to their students how what we did didn't work and they were making a killing while we scraped to even break even...Now that MMA is big, it's posted on their signs and they are specialists who can show you how to mix it up UFC style..

It is ridiculous..I agree man.

I was trying to make it look like he wasn't ugly as all fuck..
I know that probably takes away from the realism..
I cant help it,
I may not be a man of the people, but I try to be a man for the people..

TheBean  - David@AccutestMi you should show Jokerman when to bitch about being sore after traing last time I had to hear it for weeks about his ass hole being sore, hold on that was not from traing at Brads place what the hell you been doing jokerman.
If you guys are going to talk shit to each other on here while embarrass your team and your instructor, at least write so people can understand it.
