I dont where to start or have the words. I remember like it was yesterday the first time I saw a UFC and knew this was the sport for me. The first time I stepped in the cage against Moti H. and hoped that Karate shit didnt work against Wrestling. I believed in Wrestling then and still do now. The hardest thing about this sport is that you dont tell it when youre through it tells you when youre done! This latest setback is the tuffest opponnent I ever had to fight against. In all of my years I never looked accross the cage and thought that I couldnt win;that was until my hip collapsed. It pains me to tell you for the past 6 months I have been doing anything I can to make the pain go away and figure out how I am going to pay for this surgery. I had a great career and only regret is I should have worked harder.
I want to thank all who have supported me through the years. There are way to many to name them all. To name a few: my parents/daughters/family, Dana White/Joe Silva/Fertittas/& UFC/PRIDE, MMA ELITE, Josh Burns/Patino Diet, Mike D., Mike Davis UCL, Dan Lambert, and so many more. Thank You, Live Your Dream, and God Bless....MC
