For most fighters, entering the UFC Octagon to face a fierce opponent is the hardest thing they’ll have to do in their lives. Within a few seconds they face their adversary’s full arsenal: punches, kicks, elbows, throws, arm bars, knee locks, triangle chokes, guillotine chokes, and so on. It sounds pretty bad, and tough to most, unless you’re welterweight Luigi Fioravanti. You see, when instead of punches and kicks and elbows, you have bullets and bombs coming at you, the sport of mixed martial arts becomes a very tranquil walk in the park.

Very interesting article, and definitely worth a look. i like Luigi's fighting style, and his toughness.

EDIT: what i wrote before had no significance, cuz i was thinking of another fighter. lmao

Haha... man.... I can really identify with that article. I was in the same boat, except the Army. Since I've been back I've been working at the bars and stuff, too. I just woke up and it's 11AM. I need to be like Luigi and stop with that shit and start doing something for real, haha

your thinking of pelligrino that had the hole and talked bout rambo, but i think luigi will win this fight anyway
