The timing couldn’t have been worse for Jake O’Brien. Fresh off the biggest win of his young mixed martial arts career over Heath Herring in January of 2007, the Indiana native had an unbeaten record, a victory over a perennial heavyweight contender, and was a couple of wins away from being in contention for the title.

He was also dealing with ‘stingers’, a nerve injury usually seen on the weekly injury reports in the NFL, and something he had been experiencing since his days wrestling for Purdue. But while he would usually work through the pain, which was then followed by numbness in his arms, eventually it got to be too much.

He's got the right attitude. I hope that things work out for him

Not sure why alot of people hate on Jake. Jake is a good competitor. I know he probably LNP on Herring a little much. But, I've watched some of his earlier fights and he was pretty darn entertaining. I hope he shows what he can do against Arlovski. Although I hope Arlovski wins.

I bet Arlovski will be able to count all the light bulbs in the Arena because he's going to be on his back all night.
