Awesome. Always a fan, and got to meet him finally last summer.
Great guy. Phone Post

Always love your threads Pro Ice! Thanks dude! Phone Post

Love it. Thanks for these.

MVA had big clanging brass balls. IVC was no joke, never mind as your NHB debut.

His wrestling was one of the best of any MMA fighter at that time. I still think he beats Silva if Wand wasn't greased to the gills.

 more thanks

 You're welcome guys
