Anyone have any fighters that they have watched from the beginning (small shows) or know personally otherwise?
My cousin and one of the guys in my camp trained for a long time with >>> David "Caveman" Rickles <<<
. You might have seen him last week on Bellator 63 where he defeated Jordan Smith by TKO to advance in the welterweight tourney. Pretty cool to see him advance. I found an old flyer today that had Rickles on it from a show that must have had not more than 100 people at it. Pretty cool.
I also went to high school and played football with >>> David Heath <<<
who had a stint in the UFC and fought the likes of Lyoto Machida and Tim Boetsch.
Just curious to hear anyone else who has stories. I find it interesting!
