Great read. Man I think Hamill is way overlooked. First deaf fighyter ever to gain this much sucsess, let alone in the elite crowd of the UFC. What he has done is amazing and he continues to grow in this sport which he is still a baby at. He is young and very determined. And he comes from an wrestling background. It hits home for me and I really think the insurgence of MMA into the mainstream will help the high school and college wrestling programs immensely.
