he was a very talented fighter. anyone know if he still fights?
No! Nakapan and I started together YEARS ago. He hurt his back a few years ago training. After it healed (or thought to have healed), he did a couple of BJJ matches and started training again. He hurt it again and the Doctor told him he needed to find a new hobby.
He's doing well, got married, and working here in the DC area.
too bad. I saw a few of his fights. very talented. He fought Nate Quarry a while back and I thought he could win but he kept jumping guard for some reason and then getting ground and pounded.
He had some good BJJ and no-gi matches with Shawn Williams from Renzo's back in the day.
