It's about to air right now on Sportscenter. Shows Stephan Bonnar training with him holding the pads on the preview...looks pretty cool. Will post a web link when I can, or maybe someone else can.

 

Just giving a heads up!

Thanx for sharing; ...shit made me wash my eyes out. I'm with his pops, dude should be treated like anyone else. If he has to eat a few punches because that's his calling, cool.
