As I have become a new member to the UG I have noticed that there are "haters" and there are the classy guys. Regardless of any differences, we (by living in America) each have the opportunity to voice our opinions without penalty.
I have been fortunate enough (in my short time)to have met guys like the American Top Team, and Kieth Wisniewski, and Jason McDonald at UFC 49....I've also spoken to guys like Charles McCarthy, and others involved in MMA.
I cannot begin to tell you all how much respect I have for you guys and your chosen craft. From being around the guys like Marcus Aurelio, Renato Tavares, and JZ Calvancante, Liborio, and one of my favorites Marcello Silviera....I see how much work goes into being good....let alone being the best.
I know sometimes the public may view this as graphic or barbaric, but the genuine humility that you guys share as a common denominator & the lack of "tough guy attitude" is refreshing....and I know that somtimes you guys dont hear it enough...but as a fan of MMA....I just wanted to say thank you guys for doing what you do...the way you do it!
