There is a reason I stay off these boards and that is because at my
core I am a confident fighter who has a hard time seeing how I can
loose. I think I am the best, and I act as if. I will do so until
someone dethrones me. That being said I need to check myself too.
Couple things I am not the best Lightweight in the World, I just have
a quest to be the best. I think BJ, Sherk and yes even Rob all have done
things that I am still striving for. I am 23 and while I think I have
the tools needed to excell and beat the best of the best and I am in
this game to prove that very point. I do not want to take anything away
from Rob or his legacy. Before I was a fighter I was a fight fan and
he was one of the ones I looked to as to what I wanted to be. I even
went to HB to see him and the other members of the Team Punishment
train and when I was offered the fight I was honored to be fighting a
great Champion like Rob. Do I expect to see him in the ring again?
If he wants too I have no doubt I will, he is a great fighter and will
be a tough fight for anyone in the WEC. Rob is a legit LW contender
in any orginization. I am proud to be able to say I fought him and
one of the few lucky enough to say I won.
Second, fuck my credentials and I am sorry I said that. I am 23 and
I beat Razor Rob McCullough by KO to win his WEC Championship Belt.
That is my credentials, I beat a great Champion at his very own
game. I was not in the hospital with a broken jaw as Pav and others
said I would be. I was at the Village Inn eating pancakes and taking
pictures with my belt. My first fight in the UFC I stood in there
with one of the best in the world and almost pulled off the upset,
Zuffa gave us fight of the night! My credentials are going to be
built in front of you my fans and critics. I will fight anyone, all
comers, If your the number one contender you are my sworn enemy until
post fight. I dont care if your from UFC, Pride, or whereever if you are one
of the best, I am going to do my best to beat you and steal your
thunder, I am going to perform for my fans and fight like you are the
only thing keeping me from having the credentials to say I am the
baddest 155 pound fighter in the world!
