Default Forum members ... SOUND OFF!!

It was nice for new members to be able to go back and read about who it is they are posting with. Often I saw a new member have some nice dialog with one of the vets and the very next moment they were searching the "intro" section to learn a little bit about the person. Since they won't have that now .. all the vets tell a little bit about yourself in here!! SOUND OFF!!!

I'll start ... <clears throut>

Hi ... I'm Boomer. I was born in Illinois, raised in Texas and now live in Virginia. I'm 33 and have had a few careers in my short life. From 18 to 23 I worked in a church, then at 23 I joined the Marine Corps. I did one tour with the Corps, got out at 28 and landed a job working for the Federal Government. I've been to about 16 coutries in my life and love to travel and love watching both ametuer and professional MMA. As a matter of fact MMA is the only sport I have ever loved.

I saw UFC 52 live and became an instant Matt fan .... the more I found out about him, the more I liked the the guy and over the course of the past few years he's become a pretty good buddy. Actually I got a few good buddies from this site. ;)

I'll try to make this short....I actually joined the old MH forums over a year ago...anyway, my name is Kim, mik is my name backwards, and I was born in North Carolina, where apparently redneck jokes were born...yea ya get the idea...anyway....

Grew up on Marine Corp bases, which makes me 100% USDA-grade military brat, I love to shoot my BB Gun, ride and train horses, read, hang out on the beaches of my home state, bake, and watch MMA. My friend got me into MMA a few years ago, with, you guessed it, Matt Hughes, and now I'm training at a gym in Charlottesville, VA.

How did I end up there?

Well, went to UVA, hated it, then I got saved, joined a church, and ended up staying. And 3 jobs, 3 years, and a hop and a skip later, I'm still here, now pursuing a Master's degree in counseling, working full time, training MMA, walking my doggies, and riding horses when I can. I also plan to travel a ton this year. Msge me if ya wanna know anything else, but that covers it all. I look forward to meeting the newbies

Hi, My name is Mark and I'm not quite a vet and not quite a newbie. I am a HUGE MMA fan, and a big Matt Hughes fan. This forum has only strenghtened my fandom for the Mr. Hughes. I've gotten to meet several forum members and let me tell you that you won't find a stronger, more supportive group. We fight like family and we lift eachother up like family.
I was born and raised on a grain farm in Indiana and now live in Queens New York with my wife of 5 years.
