What is the hardest part about being a UFC fighter?
What’s your favorite part about your job as a sports-talk radio host?
What athlete do you admire the most?
Where do you get your inspiration for your writing?
What’s your ultimate career goal?
My ultimate career goal is to work my way back to the top in the fight game and go out on my own terms. I also believe I belong in the world of UFC/MMA broadcasting and will eventually be one of the top names in that world. If I can add best-selling author to the list, life can't get much better.
