Met Ryan Bader, Brandon Vera, Jason Lambert, Mark Munoz, Big Nog, JDS and Anderson Silva all in one day about 5 years ago. I went to my school for a wrestling practice over the summer and walked in to a bunch of big ass dudes in my mat room. I was already a big MMA fan and started recognizing who everyone was and all of the guys I listed above were there. Apparently an alumni from our wrestling program trained at Black House and for some reason the team didn't have any facilities to cut weight at before UFC 102 in Portland so they came to our mat room. Overall, it was a really sick experience and we got to stick around and take pictures and talk with all the guys. The coolest guy by far was Brandon Vera, really down to Earth and just sat and shot the shit with us for about an hour. We have some pretty awesome pictures from the whole thing that I'm going to try to dig up. Phone Post 3.0

Jorge Masvidal was one of the instructors at the first school I trained at. I remember after training for a couple of weeks, one of the classes he was like "gear up". Had noobs to advance all sparring hard..haha Phone Post 3.0

Ryan Williams - Went to HS with Lavern Clark. However, the first I really knew who he was is Henry Matamoros before meeting him. Met him when I joined BJJ, he was one the nicest and strangest dudes I had ever met. Absolutely hilarious once you get to know him. Phone Post 3.0

Lavern Clark is a dude who should get a lot more respect around here. He was actually a legitimate (if not all that great) pro-boxer with over 30 fights, and he fought in mma for many, many years. Here is his first fight against another beginner (and UG legend) Shonie carter...

Juan Mott is a blast from the past... I remember all the stuff on the underground about him but was surprised to find he actually seemed like a good guy when I met him in person

Mikey Burnett was one of my first wrestling coachs (6th crade Tiger wrestling club ) back when he had long hair and previous to his title fight. Back then I didn't even know he was a fighter at first, always a very nice and humble guy.

He was also a great high school wrestler. He was one dude that I was like I never want to fuck with.

I think had he not got himself in trouble over the years and stayed consistently training he could of had a great career. Phone Post 3.0
