Ask him how thankful he is for being blessed with those Wanderlei wins, especially the second one.

Rich has one of the greatest sub escapes I have ever seen against Yushin Okami.

 

Edit - I mean Travis Lutter! But he does survive a nasty kimura in the 3rd round of the Okami fight.

Watching now, me and my cousin use to talk about Rich always having a black eye going into fights, we joked and said someone purposely punched him in the eye before hand so he could always rock that shiner for fight nights.

Just finished it. That was cool. Two fighters I really loved watching. I was a bit confused though when Rich said he can't have anyone at his house and at some point later in the podcast it sounded like someone was in the kitchen and Rich was looking at them. But loved the whole discussion. Good stories.
