We all need a little distraction in these trying times. Also this website was not only built on my stupid opinions but also to help get the names of local guys/gals and companies out there the best way that I can to help out in any way I can. Now is one of those times.

1. What have you spent most of your time on since all of this changed things?

Recovering. You might not realize it, but I’m at about 300-400 fights in the span of two years. My body hurts a little bit, and then the Deathmatches have caused more wear and tear.


2. How are you staying in ring shape?

Gotch bodyweights. Kettlebells. Throwing Charlie Kruel. Running with my Doge. Dieting.


3. What is the weirdest thing you have done since the quarantine to keep yourself sane?

Charlie Kruel and I have been attacking each other randomly, and I end up dropping her on her head in the couch. I’m not going insane by staying home, I’m making the most of it.


4. What is the first thing you are doing when this is over?

Going to a fight and going to my CACC trainer to train for two days. Drinking in Chicago with Markus Crane. Maybe going to Jersey or Florida because why not.


5. You somehow get to make the call, first match back…who do you want?

Minoru Suzuki. Nick Gage. Chris Dickinson. Simon Grimm. Daniel Makabe. Gary Jay. Mance Warner.
