"Pound for Pound! Headshot, dead!"

Been watching mma since UFC Fight Night: Silva vs Bisping in February of 2016. Got into Boxing the year after in late 2017. Been hooked on Combat Sports ever since! (;

UFC Events I've been to : UFC 220 & UFC on ESPN 6: Reyes vs Weidman (Both at TD Gahden in Boston)

Bellator Events I've been to: Bellator 185, Bellator 194, Bellator 207, Bellator 216 and Bellator 232 (All at Mohegan Sun in Connecticut)

Only fighter I've ever met was Glover Teixiera at Bellator 194 at Mohegan Sun in Connecticut. I know that's random. (4 years before he won the UFC LHW title @ age 42)

I share a birthday with the WMMA GOAT Amanda Nunes & "The Dragon" Lyoto Machida.

In December 2013, at UFC 168, Anderson Silva broke both bones in his lower leg, in an incredibly rare occurrence, when his leg kick was blocked by Chris Weidman. A little over 8 years later , at UFC 261, Chris Weidman broke his lower leg in exactly the same way against Uriah Hall.

Events I've won : ~ Kramer vs Toth (https://www.tapology.com/fightcenter/events/79420-kramer-vs-toth)

~ Chavez Jr. vs. Silva: Tribute to Kings (https://www.tapology.com/fightcenter/events/78242-chavez-jr-silva)
