What is this? 1st Degree Camo Belt
my rank

Been following MMA for a few years now. I'll take a slick submission over a brutal KO anyday. IMO, it takes more skill to set up and perform a submission. Ever heard of a 'lucky submission'? Didn't think so.

The first MMA fight I've ever seen was Couture vs Liddell 2. Took a few years of being a casual fan to really sink in, but I got there. Really started getting into it after I saw Rampage knock out Liddell and the Tito/Liddell fights.

All time favorites include:

Anderson Silva

Minotauro Nogueira

BJ Penn

Shogun Rua

Rampage Jackson

The Diaz Bros

Hardcore San Antonio Spurs fan. Big fan of music. Mostly metal and hip hop with some punk and classic rock mixed in there, but I'll listen to anything if it's good.

Love boxing too. Could say it's what got me into MMA. Favorite fight is the 1st fight that Tommy Hearns and Sugar Ray Leonard had. Probably the most beautiful, technical fight that boxing has ever seen.
