Just for fun, while we're awaiting the last GP competitors (still!), I thought I' d throw in some interesting info...
I was chatting with my little friend Austin Waterman (3rd grader at the elem school where I student teach). He couldn't quite remember the name of the guy his dad is fighting, so I started throwing out descriptions of Gan McGee to see if I could ring a bell. He was kinda goin' with it, but mentioned that most of the fights Ron was studying did not take place in the UFC. Then today I asked if he found out for me and he said that he forgot, but they just changed his opponent again, anyway.
Keep in mind that this info is from a 9 year-old that mostly thinks about seeing his dad (since he's always leavin' town) and what he's going to be doing at recess, but it's interesting nonetheless.
