Real good interview. I didn't know he had taken a trip up to MFS. Nice guy, I hope he does well in the house. Anyone who patterns his fight game after Nog is good by me.

On another note, I really want to see what happens when an NFL caliber athlete (Shivers, Jones types) gets into MMA early, rather than post NFL/other sport. Just looking at the raw physical tools those guys possess is impressive. While raw tools aren't enough by themselves, those guys could be the prototype for the UFC HW division in the future, and it would be a sight if someone like that started training early rather than later.

Sounds like a decent sort with some good physical tools!
