Thanks for letting us know!

I'm a big fan of his and all the work he does for other fighters.
While still kicking butts, himself!

The first time I saw Jeremy fight was against Frank Shamrock at UFC 17. Shamrock had just fought Kevin Jackson and Igor Zinoviev, both stars of the Extreme Fighting org who were both amazing fighters in their own right, but Frank wrecked both of them in a matter of seconds. Everyone clapped politely and waited for Frank to put on a show, and were blown away when the challenger chased the dominant champion around the canvas for a quarter of an hour. Frank was visibly relieved when he was able to snatch a lucky kneebar and end the fight, and Jeremy left the Octagon with an instant fan base.

Happy Birthday!

By the way, according to Wikipedia, he beat Chael Sonnen twice, lol! [Edit, three times!]

Love watching Jeremy fight, he's a class act and has a ton of heart. Would like to see him come back and fight in the UFC.
