"This is it for me," he said. "I've never wanted anything more in my life. I have given up everything for this fight. I have been dreaming about this moment since I was 12 years old. I started in martial arts when I was 9, and at 12 years old, I always knew in my mind I would be training for a big fight one day."

A source of further inspiration for his impeding fight is the current situation of his friend Will Ribeiro.

Ribeiro, once a promising WEC fighter, continues to struggle in many facets of his life following a devastating 2008 motorcycle crash that has relegated him to a wheelchair.

"I talk to him all the time on e-mail," Reinhardt said. "He's hurting. He doesn't even have food in his apartment. The only person that stuck by him is his brother (Wladimir). He can walk a little bit with a walker. He can get up, but he'll never fight again, never. I am hoping one day he can teach and still be involved in the sport.

 I've read some articles on Will Ribeiro that paint a picture of him and his brother receiving a ton of help and nothing anyone ever does for them is enough...

He has had one too many concussions.  You can tell by the eyes.
