Happy New Year to all. The year has come to an end. It is usually during the week of Christmas, and New years hat I am the slowest. It gives me time to reflect, and take a look at the goals I set for this past year, to see how I did, and to look adding any new goals for the up-coming year.

I will no longer be stepping into the cage as a competitor. The number one goal I set for myself in 2012 was to be finished with my Mixed Martial Arts competition career. I was attempting to do my own self-directed retirement tour in the last couple of years reaching out to only three people...Mark Coleman, Ken Shamrock, and Royce Gracie. I spoke to two of them directly (Mark & Ken), and through representative (MGR) for Royce Gracie. It seems as though these matches will not take place for whatever reasons and my life now goes on to the next chapter.

I met Dan at the power MMA grand opening and he told me he wanted to have 1 more fight and go out on a win. he said he didn't want to lose to some up and coming kid but would rather fight someone like a legend. he said if he started taking steroids he would fight Brock Lesnar and he would rip Brocks arm off and beat him over the head with it... true story.

Whooo! At first I thought it was DamnSevern and I was like, "NOOOOOOOOOOOO, not again," but then I realized I totally misinterpreted the thread title. That's good news.

Although his extended career was not championship level he was a legend in his time for sure and deserves kudos as such.

BOGIE -  Yen years too late. Phone Post

You do realize he won 8 of his last ten and more and enjoyed what he did more than anyone even at his age?

 

But no you know when when people must stop doing what they love, especially cause you're some internet troll looking for attention.

 

You go girl!

Dan was a legend in the greatest era of no holds barred fighting. His pre fight promos were great. I didn't know he was still competing.

Had the honor of fighting on the same card as Dan one night. As he frequently does, he was doubling up, and teaching a seminar the next day. I was hurting the next day, but I'm sure he was too, and I dragged myself out to learn from the legend. I was surprised (shoudn't have been) at how solid and technical it was, just great, fundamental wrestling for MMA stuff with great anecdotes mixed in. It was at a TMA school, and he was really blowing some turbans off all the blackbelts with how efficient and artful good wrestling was. Great seminar, great weekend.
