Final Interview with Mask

Still so sad, I believe you can see his red Ferrari in the background in parts of the interview.

I hope my last interview won't be so full of cliches.

"I love being the underdog, I love being a team player!"

Call it a cliche filled interview if you want..The whole crew there had a huge influence on MMA.. and rising fighters..

remembering "Mask" that way is kind of a smack in the face..

I probably won't remember him much at all, to be honest.

Honesty is a great quality to have, but it's not always proper to speak your mind. :wink:

I gotta say..

That's pretty "F'ed" up way to say you didn't care for a HUGE man in the sport you love...


You may not remember "Mask"... But I bet you will remember these names....

Matt Hughes
Chuck Liddell
Rashad
Rich Franklin
Jeremy Horn
Diego Sanchez
Sean Sherk
Stephen Bonnar
Jardine
Nate Marquart
and ..
and..
and..
and...
and...


AND many many many more names.. of fighters you like/love/hate....

All had money put in their pockets by TapouT...

"From a gross of $30,000 in 1999, TapouT's earnings rose to $100 million in 2008. The company has a worldwide network of licensed retailers, including Dillard's and Champs.[2]

In 2007, TapouT launched a reality television series, also called TapouT, on Versus. Each episode follows Mask, Punkass and their third partner, "Skyskrape", as they scout fighters to add to their sponsorship roster."


Nah.. no real reason to remember Mask at all....


"whatever"

I didn't care for his eccentricities, but there was never any denying his influence on and his love of MMA. Say what you will, but Tapout's sponsorship of up and coming fighters and ability to bring publicity to the sport helped put the UFC and MMA on the map. His death is a loss to the sport, not to mention his family and friends. Even if you didn't like him, you should respect his contributions to the sport we love.
