People often ask me why I don’t fight anymore. I love the sport of MMA and will continue to train until the day I die. But, fighting professionally at the highest level was a huge sacrifice. It probably took years off my life lol.
Nowadays, I think about the injuries I’ve sustained and the important life events I’ve missed. I tell myself that I want to enjoy these things now.
Here is picture taken after one of my more challenging fights. As you can see, I took a fair share of punishment.
I won. My opponent went to the hospital.
The funny thing is… all that said:
The years I spent fighting professionally gave me some of the most meaningful memories of my life AND I’D DO IT ALL AGAIN! #NeverQuit #NeverGiveUP
