I predicted the ball busting quotes were going to outnumber the respectful ones :-)

I am looking for quotes like:

"I die s----ing in my pants like everybody else, but knowing who I was, knowing truly who I was."

"If you look at UFC champions: BJ Penn - terrifying! GSP - terrifying! Anderson Silva - terrifying! But I'm not terrifying. I am not the super-submission guy, I am not the one-punch KO guy, so I am not the most feared guy in the world.

"But I will not quit, I will not break and I will fight you like a dog for every second of every round. I am not a super-talented guy, I'm just a dude who will fight you tooth and nail."

I put this in the original write up, but this quote from Jake Rossen is perfect for Bob Shamrock:

"Sports are full of peripheral characters that operate outside the frame of a camera. Some get their proper acknowledgment, and some do not. To wonder about what mixed martial arts would be like today had Bob Shamrock not opened his home to troubled young men plays with quantum theory: what if this, what if that. We only know that Ken speculated he’d be incarcerated or dead if not for Bob’s intervention, that the earliest incarnation of the UFC was a sea of ill-equipped fighters with hearts bigger than their sense and that Shamrock represented actual athleticism. In possessing legitimate skills and a poster boy’s body, he helped nudge it closer to respectability.

He is not the first father that will be sorely missed, though perhaps the only one to be mourned by 600 sons. His contributions to this sport were largely unseen. But like all great supporting roles, the story would not be nearly the same without him."

I think you might have to bribe people for mini-bios with free blue names.

In which case I would do some.....
