MMA Campfire Tales

Living paycheck to paycheck is damn hard, but it's a lot harder when your profession is getting the crap kicked out of you. Thats why we're taking a moment to look at three of the "greatest" journeymen the sport has ever seen.

Are they below .500? Oh yeah.
Are they fighting from pennies? You bet.
Will they fall off a fight card due to injury? Not unless you'd call "flatlining" an injury.

"If you think Ritch is a pussy, here’s a little gem for you. Back in 2001, he broke his arm in training, yet was already scheduled to face Frank Shamrock in a kickboxing bout in a couple of weeks. So, Ritch went to the fight, cut his cast off in the locker room, and fought the greatest fighter of his era with a broken arm. One blocked head kick later and Ritch was on the mat with a very re-broken arm. No biggie, he fought five weeks later."

Damn. Not too many guys around with balls his size.

i forgot about Ritch. that guy lived in the trenches for a long time. no where near the best fighter, but he was a REAL fighter at heart. if he was in the medieval times, he would be missing an arm, an eye, an ear, some toes and fingers, but for some reason would still show up to sword fights.

Those statements about Dennis Reed! No matter who he is fighting, how much training is possible, his game remains the same....walk forward and throw as many punches as possible.

If you think I'm kidding, hit him up on youtube. Looks like a 70's porn star with 30lbs of baby fat, but will walk down any man on Earth.

Remember that next time you call out of work because your tummy hurts.


That was a good line. Great article Svar!

Back then, cable providers thought No-Holds-Barred fights were decaying the moral fiber of America. This never seemed to stop them from running Double Anal Adventure Whores day and night, but to hell if they were going to let some barbaric prick watch UFC 22.


If he fingers a girl, a grizzly bear with a leather jacket on will drive a bulldozer out of her birth canal nine months later.
