I was just wondering if anyone here was related to and/or a good friend of a pro MMA fighter. I think it would be pretty cool if I was related to someone like Anderson Silva or something.

lol My old Jiu Jitsu teacher was in UFC 12. He went 1-1. Then I found out he was a fraud and his blackbelt was from a different martial art besides BJJ. Thats as close to knowing a "fighter" as i've come.

I don't know if they're friends or anything like that, but my uncle and his wife live across the street from Nick Diaz.

I know a few.

My brother-in-law Josh Neer

I know John Halverson, Houston Alexander, and Jeremy Stephens.

I used to fight like a few years ago. Me and Josh started around the same time. I had my son and gave up fighting.

I always hear about how there are pro fighters on this site and im very curious to know who they are. I understand why they dont want to come forward and want to have privacy but i would definately cheer for those guys if i know they were on here. I think it would be a great way to start a fan base.

My dad and Family is really good friends with Dan Severn. In fact I was at UFC 4 with my dad who was there to support his buddy Dan. That's what got me in to MMA and after the show I was hooked.

Also not a MMA fighter but a 2x freestyle wrestling olympic gold medalist John Smith who is my cousin's best friend. He taught me how to wrestle from 6 years old to my early teens and later was my head coach at OSU.

I have met a few famous fighters, but I wouldn't say I knew them or anything.

A close friend of mine was taking private lessons with Jeff Joslin for a while.


Other than that, I have no inlet to the MMA world.
